Yes, you read that right. Seems as though this "politically correct" stuff has now hit the Muppets now, all because the owners are Christians and
although they hire gays, they just believe in a Man/Woman marriage, as many thousands of people do. But I see that Jim Henson does not approve of
The Jim Henson Co., owner of the widely promoted Muppets characters, says it won’t be working with Chick-fil-A any more based on the statement
of Christian faith from the restaurant chief that he does not endorse homosexual marriage.
“The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over 50 years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A (sic) that we do
not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors,” said a Facebook statement from the company. “Lisa Henson, our CEO, is personally a strong
supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A (sic) to GLAAD [ a homosexual promotion
“I love the double standard that Jim Henson’s company is expressing by not … accepting Christians’ belief in the biblical definition of
marriage,” wrote Valorie Phillips.
Added Michele Sparacino, “Lisa Henson you support gay marriage, however Chick-fil-A did not ban giving your toys out. So why would you ban
Chick-fil-A. I know for a fact they hire gay people. They just do not believe in same sex marriage… Is that not there (sic) freedom of
The dispute developed after Dan Cathy, the chief of Chick-fil-A, which was begun by his father, Truett Cathy and now is a $4 billion-plus a year
business, recently gave an interview to The Baptist Press and said, “We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the
family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.
“You have to look at the history of the homosexual movement,” he said. “It’s all about intimidating. The reason they fear Chick-fil-A is
it’s a popular, respected, growing operation.” “That Cathy actually has the temerity to hold his own beliefs as a Christian [they believe] he
has committed some sort of crime,” he said.
Another Hollywood Do-gooder that acts like they are better and then threaten to boycott over ones beliefs, beliefs that has been around since the
beginning of the Chic-fil-A business. All over Gay marriage?? I guess I just don't understand why they can't accept that people think and feel
differently and are tired of having issues crammed down their throat.
It's not like Chic-fil-A just got religion..... they've always been that way. So to me, Jim Henson & Co. are just acting like little spoiled
There are a lot more important things in this country to worry about than gay marriage [no disrespect intended].
It's just that the economy, high unemployment, elections coming up, turmoil in the M.E., etc. is a tad bit more serious than Mr. Muppet Man's
Go Chick-fil-A.... don't be intimidated by the Hollywood snobs.
I think I know where I'll be eating lunch tomorrow!!
