When it comes to its beef with actor Ed Helms, Chick-fil-A is not playing chicken.

The company has issued an immediate response to The Office star's recent Tweet, which took Chick-fil-A to task for its President admitting he is opposed to gay marriage.

"The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect - regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender," the statement reads.

"We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena."

This controversy erupted after Helms responded to Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy telling the press his company operated on "biblical principles" and, as a result of such a public stance, Chick-fil-A has lost him as a customer.

What do you think of Helms threatening a boycott?

Ed Helms is hilarious in The Hangover and on The Office.

But the actor does not take the stance of Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy as a laughing matter.

In a recent interview with a Christian publication, Cathy said his company is "guilty as charged" when it comes to accusations that it is opposed to gay marriage, adding that Chick-fil-A supports the "biblical definition of the family unit."

That is the company's right, of course, and it's led to Helms exercise his own right.

"Chick-Fil-A doesn't like gay people? So lame," Helms Tweeted yesterday. "Hate to think what they do to the gay chickens! Lost a loyal fan."

Helms is not alone in his stance. Many associated with NOH8 - such as Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan and Kim Kardashian - have also called for a Chick-fil-A boycott.

Where do you stand on Helms' decision to boycott the restaurant?

Brian Edwards and Tom Privitere, a New Jersey couple married in 2010, were stunned - and irate - to find themselves on an anti-gay political ad campaign.

The photo of the two men had been posted innocuously on Edwards' personal blog and was originally set against the backdrop of the N.Y. City skyline.

A doctored version shows the gay couple standing in a Colorado setting and was used in a political ad to attack a Republican who supported civil unions:

Gay Couple Ad

The tagline for the attack ad, which was sponsored by Public Advocate of the United States, was: "State Sen. Jean White's Idea of 'Family Values?'"

White later lost the primary.

Now, with the help of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the duo and photographer Kristina Hill are all threatening to sue the organization behind the ad and its president, Eugene Delgaudio, if they do not stop using the photo.

"Our initial reaction was complete shock," said Privitere, 37, who lives with Edwards in Montclair, N.J. The couple has been together for 12 years.

Kirk Cameron, who caused an uproar by calling homosexuality unnatural, detrimental to society and immoral in an interview with Piers Morgan in March, is at it again.

Well, a lot more subtly this time.

The National Organization for Marriage has just released a video labeling Cameron "one of America's most important champions of marriage."

It's an apparent tip of the hat in response to his vocal opposition to gay marriage, and suffice it to say, gay rights activists are far from pleased.

"Kirk Cameron and the anti-gay activists at NOM are making a claim that Americans know to be false," GLAAD President Herndon Graddick said.

"This rhetoric won't work anymore. Communities across this country love and cherish their LGBT neighbors, friends and family members."

Cameron's anti-gay views are not as expressly stated this time, but the implication of the video above is that marriage only applies to heterosexuals.

"If we want a great future in this world, we have to take God at his word," the former Growing Pains star says in the "Champion of Marriage" video.

Move over, Brangelina. You're being upstaged by... your parents?!?

Indeed, days after Brad Pitt's mother, Jane Pitt, made headlines for penning an editorial that bashed Barack Obama as "a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage," Angelina Jolie's estranged father has come out in support of his quasi relative.

"Good for her," Jon Voight - who once laid into Obama himself for spreading "anti-Semitism throughout the world" - told Fox News about Mrs. Pitt.

The veteran actor, one of the more outspoken conservatives in Hollywood, added that he agreed all around with Jane Pitt's stance.

Moronic Twitter followers have been sending out death threats to Pitt for her letter, but her very own son has no problem with his mother expressing her views. Said Doug Pitt on The Today Show:

"I think moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world. So why would our family be any different? There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you."

Where do YOU stand on the topic of gay marriage?

Brad Pitt's mother, Jane Pitt, has been targeted by critics and even with death threats after a letter she wrote last week to her local Missouri newspaper.

Jane Pitt's letter expressed support for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, citing his opposition to same-sex marriage and abortion as two reasons.

Given Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's staunch support of gay rights, the letter came as a surprise to many, and subjected Jane to a firestorm of criticism.

Brad Pitt's Mom

Brad's brother Doug Pitt defended their mom, if not her political views, while Jane said she would no longer be commenting to the media on the letter.

Others were not so diplomatic, to say the least.

Reaction was swift on Twitter, where one user, I Bleed Gaga wrote, "BRAD PITT'S MOM WROTE AN ANTI-GAY PRO-ROMNEY EDITORIAL. KILL THE B***H."

Another named Sandy Kownacka wrote, "Brad Pitt's mom, die."

Others stiil wrote: "F**k you, brad pitt's mom, the gay community made your kid a star, you whacko," and, "Brad Pitt's mom is a dumb c***."

Okay, people. Chill. As Doug said, it's alright to disagree, but can't we keep things civil? No need to threaten a senior citizen's life over this.

Brad Pitt has been a vocal advocate for gay rights, so it came as a bit of a surprise to learn that his mom write an editorial in her local Missouri newspaper that supports presidential candidate Mitt Romney's conservative views on homosexuality.

Springfield's News-Leader confirms that the author is Brad's mom.

Jane Pitt's letter was primarily penned to express support for Romney, in response to a previous News-Leader editorial urging readers to shun the Republican's bid to unseat President Barack Obama because of his Mormon beliefs.

In her response, which was published on Tuesday, she wrote:

"I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is Mormon."

"Anyone who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney’s opponent, Barack Hussein Obama - a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for years and did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer."

Obama, she writes, is "a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage. I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility."

Congratulations to the whole family!

Miley Cyrus, you have a famous partner in your crusade on behalf of gay marriage and equal rights.

At a press conference Sunday for the 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards, Shane Grimes touched on a number of topics, from her career to her mother's comfortable couch to her feelings on Canadian values/laws versus those in America.

Regarding the latter, this 90210 actress expressed absolute shock over the "prejudice" in the United States and how she's her proudest moment as Toronto native took place when she moved to Los Angeles and realized just how far behind the times many can be in this country.

Will she get in trouble for such pointed remarks? Or will she gain a newfound level of respect for her honesty and open-mindedness toward all religions, races and sexual orientations? Watch the interview and decide for yourself:

Carrie Underwood is not alone in supporting gay marriage, but she's one of the few stars to say she does so because of her strong religious beliefs.

The "Jesus, Take the Wheel" singer, a devout Christian, told Britain's The Independent newspaper that for her, marriage equality is rooted in faith.

"As a married person myself, I don't know what it's like to be told I can't marry somebody I love, who you want to marry forever," she said.

"I can't imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love."

Raised Baptist, Carrie recently switched to a non-denominational Christian congregation along with her husband, NHL player Mike Fisher.

You see a lot of religious objections to marriage equality, (like this hate-filled child), but Underwood said her faith inspired her to support gay marriage.

"Above all, God wanted us to love others," the Oklahoma-born CMT award winner said. "It's not about setting rules, or [saying] 'everyone has to be like me.'"

"No, we're all different," the 29-year-old continued. "That's what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other."

"It's not up to me to judge anybody."

She makes a point, doesn't she?
