Hypocrisy is the state of pretending to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that one does not actually have. Hypocrisy involves the deception of others and is thus a kind of lie
It’s not every day that the leader of a big business steps into a national debate that has the potential to offend many of its customers.
But Dan Cathy, president of the popular fast food chain Chick-fil-A, has done just that, saying on a radio show that “we’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage. And I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about.”

A really dumb question, but what are they lying about? Aren't they recalling the toys? I'm missing the "lie."

OF COURSE Chick Fil A is going to get rid of muppet toys.
I mean .. comeon ... DUH!
Chick Fil A can close on Sundays and run it's business the way it wants to.
Muppets can declare a boycott and not eat chicken. Whatever.
So, at least The Huffington Post doesn't seem to know what the reason for the recall is.
Whether or not the toy recall was in any way motivated by the Jim Henson Company's announcement on Facebook last week that they did "not wish to partner with [Chick-fil-A] on any future endeavors" remains a mystery. Still, as the popular LGBT blog Joe. My. God. notes, Chick-fil-A's claim regarding "possible safety issues" pre-dating the Jim Henson Company's dissolution of their partnership has also become the subject of intense debate.
Sure, I and the Post agree with you. What I don't see is how we can call it a lie, knowing the little that we do, and if it is a lie, how does that help or hurt anyone? What's the purpose? Certainly the recall costs Chick-Fil-A money by making them cough up desserts in exchange, so what's the point of a lie?
The recall reason is a bit suspicious.
