What Does Chicken Have To Do With Homosexuality?

The answer to the above question is absolutely nothing, unless you’re popular fast food spot Chick-fil-A.

The chain restaurant has long been exposed as donating to anti-gay groups and its president, Dan Cathy, recently made statements implying a strong, Bible-based stand against same-sex marriage. Now numerous businesses are beginning to take a stand against Chick-fil-A’s positioning, including the Jim Henson Company (The Muppets, etc) which posted a note on its Facebook page announcing its withdrawal of support for the chain.

“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. ”

In a discussion about ongoing attempts to redefine marriage in this country, Chick-fil-A’s Cathy said:

I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, “We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.” I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.

Do you think everyone is entitled to their opinion on issues such as same-sex marriage? Does someone’s opinion being different to yours automatically make them wrong? Will you boycott Chick-fil-A if you disagree with Cathy’s stance, just as celebrities like the Kardashians, Jane Lynch, Deepak Chopra, Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan and Ed Helms already have?
