Kermit-fil-A.jpgRight Wing Watch reports that pastor and radio host Kevin Swanson of Generations with Vision - who apparently laments the old days when homosexuality was punishable by death - last week used his radio show to discuss with his co-host Dave Buehner the Muppets decision to sever ties with the restaurant chain after Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's antigay remarks. According to Right Wing Watch:

They wondered if the Muppets support NAMBLA and if Kermit is "interested in another frog" instead of Miss Piggy and suggested that Chick-fil-A have a "frog fillet" or a "Miss Piggy on a bun" to memorialize the Muppets' decision to "take the sodomy route." (See transcript below.)

Meanwhile, antigay stalwart the Family Research Council says public officials who denounce Cathy's Bible-based homophobia will "regret" their pro-gay stance. Here's an excerpt from FRC's email newsletter to supporters:

Liberal GOP Senator Scott Brown (Mass.) also entered the fray against Cathy but declined to resort to threats like San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee, who announced that the closest Chick-fil-A to San Francisco is "40 miles away, and I strongly recommend that they not try to come any closer."

Meanwhile, the overreaction of the Left is looking more desperate as a growing number of media and legal experts come to Chick-fil-A's defense. Even Time criticized the mayors' bullying as abuses of power. The common consensus is that if Chick-fil-A ever sued, these politicians wouldn't have a chicken leg to stand on! Until then, the intolerance of same-sex "marriage" activists is on full display-which, for many Americans, may be the first time they have seen just how intolerant and hate-filled homosexual activists can be. Let's hope this will be a wakeup call to the majority of Americans who thought the call for tolerance was genuine rather than a smoke screen for intimidation and government-forced acceptance. As Gov. Tim Pawlenty said over the weekend, "It's chilling . . . it's stunning, it's jaw-dropping. And so I think strong people who see this need to stand up and say, 'No, we don't do that in the United States.'"

Here's the transcript of the Kevin Swanson diatribe, via Right Wing Watch:

Swanson: A Christian perspective ultimately brought the death penalty upon homosexuality between roughly 350 AD and roughly 1850 or so, for about 1,500 years that form of life had pretty much been eliminated except here and there, it was in the closet, but it was almost unheard of for over 1,000 years, until recently. Of course, now you have a massive, massive increase in this kind of thing.

...

Swanson: I say this is a really bad idea for somebody to stand up against the laws of God. Realize that this is a brave venture, this has been about a 30 year plan, a 40 year plan maybe, to completely consume America with a pro-homosexual agenda, and I just don't think it's going to last, I think you are going to see Jesus Christ coming up against this kind of thing, as we have said already about the Joe Paterno case.

Buehner: It's pretty obvious to anyone who's on looking that tolerance only runs one direction, you only can tolerate gays, you can't tolerate those who don't support gays.

Swanson: And Kermit the Frog is not eating Chick-fil-A either.

Buehner: No, they're pulling out. Chick-fil-A had an association with the Muppets, a Happy Meals kind of thing. But Kermit the Frog doesn't want to be there anymore, turns out that Kermit is not that interested in Miss Piggy, maybe he's interested in another frog.

Swanson: Maybe Dan Cathy should consider doing a frog fillet for one of the sandwiches.

Buehner: A frog fillet?

Swanson: A frog fillet, by commemoration of Kermit the Frog pulling out of his support for Chick-fil-A. Dave, you know that Sesame Street and the Muppets are going to take the sodomy route. I don't know, do they support NAMBLA? I'm not sure, we should ask, we should ask if the Muppets support NAMBLA.

Buehner: I don't think the frog fillet will sell, just a little marketing advice, I think Miss Piggy on a bun, that's a better bet, the winner.

Swanson: Miss Piggy on a bun, that sounds good, a fried pig on a bun.

Buehner: Sausage, a little bacon.

Swanson: Piggy on a bun. Well folks, it's good news we have some organizations like Chick-fil-A.
