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.

Children’s TV production has a ridiculous percentage of homosexual employees.
Great. It is time to thank the companies who have the guts to stand up for the country and conservative principals.
I always try to shop that way. That’s one half of the reason I haven’t eaten at a McD’s or BK in almost three years.
(The other half being that their stuff is crap.)
Yeah. The left goes basically Occupy Wall Street when they hate something. Deranged. They protested outside Fox News back when Glenn Beck was there. They then tried a failed campaign against Whole Foods. It goes on and on. Nuts all of them. Now they are trying to attack Chick-Fil-A. Moonbats as well.
Now this really isn’t fair to the Seventh Day Adventists (or Messianic Jewish Christians). Chick-Fil-A ought to give its franchisees a choice of Saturday or Sunday sabbaths.
Ha Ha that's great. What kind of idiot would think DeGeneres would be a good spokesman? Well, maybe for Subaru.....
Big Bird is a homo.
Anthropomorphizing animals and aliens has been one of the left’s best tools for breaking down racial and cultural barriers. The Muppets, the characters on Star Trek, and all the others were designed to make the differences between blacks and whites, and between heteros and homos, seem minor.
The Jim Henson company makes sex toys?
My memory is that Jim Henson died of a virulent blood infection after refusing for days to get medical help because he was a member of the Christian Science Church. It was too late when he did go for medical help. This sticks in my mind because I took sick one evening at our mountain house with terrible shakes. My wife insisted we go home without any delay. Reaching home I passed out and my son and wife drove me to the emergency at a hospital a few blocks from our home. At the hospital I was given some shots which I later learned were a number of antibiotics. I woke up in the hospital where I stayed seven days, What is so intriguing is that when I woke up in the hospital the doctor told me that I had a blood disease like Jim Hensen who died the previous day. It took me six months to get back to anywhere near my previous health. Since then I have to be very careful about getting any blood infections.
“Childrens TV production has a ridiculous percentage of homosexual employees.”
Because it’s a target rich environment.
Amazing how many of this country's 'problems' seemed to be spawned at Harvard...
Get their ice cream. It’s the best.
Well that’s a pro homosexual post using standard left wing talking points.
No, Blacks and homosexuals aren’t comparables.
The differences between blacks and whites ARE minor, the differences between heterosexual and homosexual are huge. One is normal and procreative. The other is abnormal and destructive.
Really? Can you cite a source on that?
That is Jim Henson’s loss, not Chic-O-Fil’s.
Try their spicy chicken cool wrap.... delicious!
He died around the middle of May in 1990. I recall because my daughter was born the day after he died. Sammy Davis Jr died around the same time. The joke around the house was if reincarnation was real...who would my daughter be? As it turns out she can neither sing, dance, or do puppets.
Take the doll and tell your kid that obama took it in lieu of taxes.Never too young to get a clue.
And if we would have gone to the Doctor, he would have lived..
