As always, I share the interesting letters I find in my inbox. Please read the email I received from Daily Kos below, regarding the anti-gay sentiments of Chick-fil-a, and watch the treat at the bottom. I signed the petition, making it a total of 4327 signers, and maybe you should too!
Please click here to sign the petition thanking The Jim Henson Company for severing ties with Chick-fil-A because of the fast food company’s financial contributions to anti-gay political organizations.
For decades, The Jim Henson Company has taught diversity, tolerance, and inclusion through its characters and productions. Because of these values, last week CEO Lisa Henson made a brave decision to end all contracts with Chick-fil-A after the fast food giant acknowledged providing financial support to anti-gay political organizations. The Jim Henson Company has directed that all payments it received from Chick-fil-A be sent to GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
In response, Chick-fil-A has engaged in childish and deceitful behavior. They have posted signs in franchises claiming that Jim Henson kids meal toys are no longer available for safety reasons, even though no actual safety problems were ever reported. Further, fake supporters are appearing in the comments section of Chick-fil-A’s Facebook page, offering praise for the company that purport to be from actual humans.
Let’s send The Jim Henson Company support from some real humans. Please, click here to thank The Jim Henson Company for severing ties with Chick-fil-A because of the fast food company’s financial contributions to anti-gay political organizations.

On a funnier note, I also desperately need to share this charming little ditty I found on YouTube, from three beautiful ‘gals’ that captures just how they feel about Chick-fil-A…enjoy!!!!
