Recently we reported that the Georgia-based fast food restaurant Chick-Fil-A has been attacked by the Left and in particular the mayor of Boston, as well as, militant homosexuals because of their biblical stand on the family and marriage. Well now they are getting attacked by…the Muppets. Yes, The Jim Henson company has decided to go after Chick-Fil-A.
According to the company’s Facebook page,
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.
I wish these people would say what they have really embraced. How about sexual perverts? How about sexual deviants? How about sodomites? The company is not embracing diversity and inclusiveness. They are embracing sinfulness and perversion. Consequently they are worthy of the same judgment from God as the homosexuals.
Some of the comments though gives me hope that there are those in America who see through the Lefts agenda.
“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.
Michele Sparacino also wrote, “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 speech.”
All of this was spawned when Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy did an interview with 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.”
The problem for the Henson Company was that they were in the midst of working with Chick-Fil-A to promote some of their toys in some of the kids meals that Chick-Fil-A offers.
Peter LaBarbera, of Americans for Truth, chimed in and said that what happened between The Henson Company and Chick-Fil-A amounted to nothing more than “fundamental intolerance of Christians.”
“You cannot accuse Chick-fil-A of somehow going out of their way to bash homosexuals. It’s a consistently Christian company,” he said. Homosexual activists, however, he said, “cannot abide” the biblical proscription of homosexual behavior, and they have the same attitude toward those to following those teachings.
“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.
While The Henson Company and others are targeting Chick-Fil-A as intolerant, Chick-Fil-A continues to serve homosexuals and some claim they have even hired some. The point of this should be clear. Chick-Fil-A takes a stand on an issue and they don’t bar people from entering their establishment. They serve everyone equal. But the liberals in our society, well they are a horse of a different color. They will boycott you in a minute. They will sling mud and names around and try to cast you out of society unless you bow to their god and their morality.
Good for Chick-Fil-A! If you are not aware, Wednesday, August 1, 2012 is going to be national Chick-Fil-A day. If you have one within driving distance please show your support of the company and its stand and get the best chicken sandwich in the business! Mike Huckabee had posted a Chick-Fil-A appreciation day and Facebook has “mysteriously” removed it.
In this entire fiasco, can anyone tell who the real “haters” are? It isn’t the Christians involved.
