Defending the family

Muppets Go Gay Over Chick-Fila-A-- now make sure tax dollars are pulled too!

The Henson company made millions on national public television but they have decided to support homosexual marriage and cancel all contracts selling their toys to Chick-Fil-a restaurants.

So Congress should make sure not one dime goes to Public Broadcasting.

"Clearly the Muppets have money to burn-- your tax dollars-- as they cancel a profitable

contract with a retail restaurant chain. So take away all tax support now," said

Eugene Delgaudio President of Public Advocate

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.

Reuters reports: "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.
