    Berenstain Bears Flip Off Chick-Fil-A
    Comments by the CEO of the fast food chain Chick-fil-A opposing same-sex marriage continued to reverberate for a second week, drawing the beloved children’s book figures the Berenstain Bears into the controversy.

    Dan Cathy, CEO of fast food chain Chick-fil-A, told the Biblical Recorder on July 16, "We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives.” The fallout was immediate.


    The Jim Henson Co., which until recently furnished the restaurant chain with "Jim Henson's Creature Shop Puppet Kids Meal Toys," spoke out against the chicken sandwich restaurant on Facebook: “Lisa Henson, our CEO, is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we receive from Chick-fil-A to (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation).”

    (Chick-fil-A then said it had pulled the puppets from the meals because of safety concerns.)

    Chick-fil-A replaced the Muppet toys with Berenstain Bears books, but the Berenstain family doesn’t appear thrilled to be associated with Chick-fil-A either. A statement on the company web site said the books’ publisher, HarperCollins, has been working on this marketing project for more than a year.

    It has been said before but it bears repeating, many in the homosexual movement want more that simply tolerance and acceptance. They want to destroy anyone one who disagrees with them. They are becoming/have become the image of what they railed against... intolerant bigots.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    I'm not sure if it is heterosexual guilt or some mutated form of Stockholm Syndrome.
