Since Dan Cathy’s announcement that he and his company, Chick-fil-A are anti-gay marriage, the chain has received a great deal of backlash. In the wake of the media storm, Daily Show host Jon Stewart took on Chik-fil-A and the Boy Scouts of America, who recently made similar statements, in a special “Holdouts” edition of the show’s “Gaywatch” segment.
Stewart began picking apart Chik-fil-A by reading aloud selections from the Bible about marriage, since Cathy maintained that same-sex marriage goes against the definition set forth by God. He then commented on two of the major reactions to the company’s announcment — the Jim Henson Company ending their partnership with the chain, and Boston mayor Tom Menino’s decision to ban the company from Beantown until they decide to revisit their position. Said Stewart:
“Open your eyes, owner of Chik-fil-A. You’re being such an a-hole, not even Boston will tolerate you!”
