The company behind the Muppets has severed its partnership with Chick-fil-A over the remarks by the restaurant chain's president, Dan Cathy, in support of the biblical definition of marriage, the Christian Post reports. The Jim Henson Company announced that because it embraced "diversity" and "inclusiveness," it would no longer partner with Chick-fil-A -- meaning no more Muppets toys for kids' meals. Meanwhile, a Chicago official has pledged to block Chick-fil-A from opening in his district, and Boston mayor Thomas Menino told the Boston Herald he no longer wanted Chick-fil-A in his city. Last week, Chick-fil-A issued a statement saying it would "leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena," adding that it had always aimed to "treat every person with honor, dignity and respect -- regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender."
