    "The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors," the company said in a statement posted on their official Facebook page.

    (snip)

    The Henson company, whose Muppet characters are hugely popular, said its Chief Executive Lisa Henson is a "strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD," the company said in their statement.


    Chick-Fil-A has not hidden its Christian mission statement from day one, which precedes the founding of Henson's company. If Henson actually gave a damn about the issue, rather than responding to pressure and then grandstanding, they might have never chosen to associate with Chick-Fil-A at all.

    It's a pity that simple symbols and characters from childhood now have to be politicized.
    Who cares what she does or thinks? The muppets were used to push a political agenda since their inception. Just another example of left wing hypocrisy.

    If sharing, tolerance, and open-mindedness are part of the liberal agenda, does that make hoarding, bigotry, and close-mindedness part of the conservative agenda?

    I think I have stated this point. She doesn't like it . . . pull the "toys" from the Chick kid's meals.

    But now we have mayors who want to ban the company from doing business in their cities. This IMO is not only no way to grow employment, but pretty dictitorial.

    some of what they preached was good, I agree. But they went too far. They are part of the reason that we cannot have winners and losers----no one can get their feelings hurt.

    Sharing, tolerance, and open mindedness are great and should be taught. But kids also need to be taught that hard work and skill will be rewarded, and that the world is not always "fair".

    The muppets existed in a fantasy world, not the real world.

    I just don't get this mentality.

    The National Organization for Marriage has declared boycotts on at least half a dozen companies for supporting same sex marriage and spends millions on deceitful advertising to push their agenda.

    One Million Moms has declared boycotts on JC Penny simply for having a gay spokesmen.

    In Virginia the state Republicans would not confirm a man to be judge for no other reason than he was gay.

    When Romney chose a gay man to be a spokesman for him, Romney got so much flack from his conservative base for the decision that the spokesman had to quit.

    Where do you get the audacity to pretend that liberals are any more or less conceited than you?

    perhaps you should go read some of the stuff people are saying on here, facebook, and even in person before making statements like this.

    i know what you mean. apparently tolerance only applies to people who's point of view coincide with yours.
