On death penalties, fast food, and the suspect tastiness of felt puppets

Last month, I brought you audio of a pastor named Kevin Swanson and his co-host, Dave Bruehner, blaming Carrie Underwood's support for marriage equality on her blonde hair and vegan diet. Now this:

During his Friday radio broadcast, Kevin Swanson said he wanted to see “Miss Piggy on a bun” because The Muppets had dumped Chick-fil-A after restaurant founder Dan Cathy insisted the company was “guilty as charged” of funding anti-LGBT organizations.

“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,” Swanson explained. “Of course, now you have a massive, massive increase in this kind of thing.”

Oh please, just try to get Piggy on a bun. Her karate chop would free her from your grip, and her sharp one-liner would shame you for even trying to contain the likes of her. She's hot, dogged one, that Pigster.

As for the rest of it? Well, I've said from moment one of this controversy that some of Chick-fil-A's most vocal supporters are their worst enemies. Somewhere in an Atlanta office, some people in suits are wishing their raving fans would shut up as much (if not more) than their concerned critics.
