The Daily Show's Jon Stewart uses his "Gaywatch" segment to shine a light on the institutions that are digging in their heels on LGBT rights — namely the Boy Scouts and Chick-fil-A.
The Boy Scouts of America recently announced a secret committee had decided to continue banning gays from scouting and from being troop leaders. And Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy said "guilty as charged" when asked if the company was opposed to marriage equality. Stewart focuses on dismantling Cathy's claim that marriage should be defined by the Bible.
