Here's what Dan Cathy said:
"I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say ‘we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage’ and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."

"In recent weeks, we have been accused of being anti-gay. We have no agenda against anyone. At the heart and soul of our company, we are a family business that serves and values all people regardless of their beliefs or opinions. We seek to treat everyone with honor, dignity and respect, and believe in the importance of loving your neighbor as yourself." (SOURCE)
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.

One final thought... as I said in the original post above, I stand behind Dan Cathy in his right to say whatever he believes. This diversity of ideas is what makes our nation great. But, isn't it hilarious to watch the Salahi's of Alaska so desperate for attention, that they'd hitch their wagon to this controversy. I believe these folks will occupy a lot of space on the wrong side of history, next to the segregationists.
Goodnight. God Bless.
