Right 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.'"
