Jackson Pearce give Chick-Fil-A a big bible smackdown!
Also…. The muppets pulled their support from Chick-Fil-A.
The Muppets are ending their relationship with fast food restaurant chain Chick-Fil-A in a show of support for gay marriage, the creators of the puppet troupe said on Monday.
“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 company said in a statement posted on their official Facebook page.
The Henson company, named after the creator of lovable characters like Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, supplied their Creature Shop Muppet toys to Chick-Fil-A for children’s meal packages but decided to sever ties after recent statements by the fast-food chain’s Chief Executive Dan Cathy.
Cathy told the Baptist Press in a recent interview the company supported the “traditional family,” and “the biblical definition of the family unit.”
The Henson company, whose Muppet characters are hugely popular, said its Chief Executive Lisa Henson is a “strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD,” the company said in their statement.
GLAAD is the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
And…. Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum love that Chick-Fil-A is owned by bigots!
Former GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum took to social media on Wednesday to announce his support for fast food chain Chick-fil-A in the wake of backlash prompted by its CEO’s recent comments against gay marriage.
In a series of tweets, Santorum touted the “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” initiative launched by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) earlier this week.
I may have to go to chick-fil-A with an atheist t-shirt. Maybe, I can get a really cool rainbow shirt.
“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” he said
Santorum – typical christian, has not read bible.
