Yay for the Jim Henson Company! Suck it Chik-Fil-A (as long as "it" is of the opposite sex)!

The Jim Henson Company, who previously teamed with fastfood chain Chik-Fil-A for a kids' meal promotion, recently responded to the restaurant's opposition to marriage equality and gay rights. The Jim Henson Company stated:

"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."

Oh, snap! Thank you, Jim Henson Company. I believe that this is the definition of poetic justice.

Chik-Fil-A notoriously backs the intolerant Christian extremist group Focus on the Family, an anti-gay, anti-Islamic, anti-secular collective of nut jobs. After its ties to the religious organization were discovered, Chik-Fil-A recently released a statement corroborating the views of Focus on the Family toward the LGBT community, saying that gay lifestyles subverted American values.
