Web gossip site FishbowlLA praised the announcement that the Jim Henson Company would be severing its ties with fast food chain Chick-Fil-A over its donations to groups that support traditional marriage.  Except that’s not exactly how Fishbowl writer Matthew Fleischer put it.

Some good news from the Jim Henson Company, which announced late last week that they are severing their business partnership with the notoriously anti-gay, fast food company Chick-Fil-A.

Chick-Fil-A had been offering Jim Henson “Creature Shop” toys in its “Kids Meals.” Nice to know the Muppets will no longer be pushing an anti-gay agenda…or cheap, terrible food that makes kids obese.

Notorious?  That’s a label pro-gay forces are using in an attempt to smear the chain which is run by noted Christian S. Truett Cathy.  What’s Cathy’s sin?  Donating money to groups that believe marriage is between one man and one woman.

Of course companies that support gay marriage or gay rights aren’t notorious in the eyes of the left, and this is just one more example of the intolerance of the left for any opinion that doesn’t square with their own.

Cathy is a well know Christian and his beliefs shouldn’t come as a surprise to his detractors. The chain is famous for closing their stores on Sunday, making it a true day of rest for its employees.

The fact that Henson severed its ties should be all that surprising since it is owned by the Walt Disney Co., which is a big supporter of gay rights.  It’s more of a surprise as to what took them so long to figure this out.

All this seems lost on Fleischer and his pals on the left, but then again no one ever accused them of being rocket scientists.
