Posted on 07/23/2012 12:03:31 AM PDT by Mozilla
Don't look now, but the Muppets want a divorce. The Jim Henson Company is scrapping its kids'-meal-toy relationship with Chick-Fil-A now that the left-wing pressure is on to boycott the Christian fried-chicken chain, which is offering toys right now from the Jim Henson Creatures' Shop line.
Muppet chieftain Lisa Henson went to Harvard and was president of Columbia Pictures, making her a progressive elite on both sides of the country. They announced on their Facebook page Friday they were strong supporters of "gay marriage" and were donating their Chick-Fil-A proceeds to the gay censorship cause:
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. 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 to GLAAD.

What started as something at least decent got taken over by the phaggots. Who was that gay Muppet?
The Jim Henson Company chickened out...
Henson died of HIV, I believe. No surprises here.
Welll im going to chick fil a all week f them
Well I hate to see The Henson company do this but if you give me the choice between supporting Chck Fil-a or the Muppets, I’m going with the cows. Eat more chicken!!! Don’t let the door hit Snuffy on the butt
pitching (or in his case catching) for the wrong team
Just wow. Gay marriage is a children’s toy issue? How many gay people procreate naturally?
They can say all the idiotic things they want. Almost every Christian I know has gone to chick fil a this week, bet they had a great week.
I’ll make sure to go this week myself. And I’ll think next time before I buy muppet stuff. Mad at both Oreo and JC Penney right now, put some oreos back on the shelf yesterday when I remembered their new “cookie”.
The backlash coming against domestic communists, perverts, baby killers, and homosexuals will be astonishing in its barbarity and swiftness.
All it takes is the right leader and the right message, which is that the leftists have to go, and by any means necessary.
I’ve never had a Chick-Fil-A but after all this crap the last couple of days,. I think I’ll go to the one they just built about four miles from here.
If they have comment cards, I’m going to let them know that they just got a new customer because of their stand.
If their food is any good, I might even go back again.
Henson died of organ failure due to Strep A....responsible for things like strep throat and rheumatic fever....this is not pneumocystis which is associated with AIDS
No...Henson died from the bacteria that causes strep throat. He didn’t go to a hospital until it was too late, likely due to his Christian Science upbringing. He was never gay or an itravenous drug user. He did NOT die of HIV infection.
Looks like “Zoe’s Dance Moves” is gonna be my last association with Le Muppae!
Dammit. My kid carries that doll around like it was an appendage.
I say parents should pack up the toys and send them to the Henson person. I don’t know if it is a he or she and don’t want to offend. Chick fil A could put up bins in their stores for donating the kids meal toys to GLAAD.
Didn’t Mr. Cathy speak out against gay marriage? How does that become ‘spoke out against being gay’? Am I wrong about what he said?
Thanks to all the adverse reaction they're getting, looks like I'll be eating there quite a bit from here on.
Oh, their food is quite good. I had some for the first time last year when I visited Texas. Ended up going a second time with my wife. I wish they had a store up here, but they won’t enter Washington State. Same thing with Cracker Barrel.
I’ve heard tell that some chains won’t come here because the state government and tax code are not ‘business friendly’.
