I like to think of “anti-gay stance” as a humorous visual, but there’s nothing funny about discrimination. So when Chick-Fil-A’s president Dan Cathy recently confirmed to the Baptist Press his company’s opposition to gay marriage, Jim Henson Company CEO Lisa Henson announced that her company would stop providing toys for Chick-Fil-A’s kids meals. After all, if Chick Fil A wouldn’t support marriage between two men, what would they say about a frog marrying a pig while constantly getting fisted?
On Facebook, the company said that CEO Lisa Henson is a strong supporter of marriage equality and decided to end the relationship with the food-maker. The company behind the Muppets will donate the money it received from Chick-fil-A to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
“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 statement reads.
The controversy over Chick-fil-A’s views on gay rights came to a head after the the company’s president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press that he was “guilty as charged” when it came to his support for the Biblical definition of marriage as being between a man and a woman.
“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” Cathy said.
What, you mean like cousins knowing cousins, God raping teenagers, and everyone begatting everywhere?
“We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”
The company has also reportedly donated millions of dollars to anti-gay Christian groups. With over $4 billion in revenue, Chick-fil-A has continued to stress its religious values by refusing, for instance, to open on Sundays. [TheWrap]
He’s probably just overcompensating for having a girl’s last name. More like Chick Fil-LAME, am I right? But on a serious note, I think there are better ways to support the gays than giving money to GLAAD. Seems a little like supporting blacks by giving money to Al Sharpton these days.
The worst part in all of this? Chik-Fil-A has politicized fried chicken. WHAT THE HELL, CHICK FIL A! Fried chicken is supposed to be a uniter, not a divider. Ever since Colonel Sanders burned his bra in front of congress. If I find out the CEO of In N Out is a Klansman, I don’t know what I’ll do. I support the cause of the liberal progressives, but their food is f**king terrible. I’ll oppress minority groups myself before I start drinking Kombucha, that stuff tastes like bottled farts.
