- Seriously, don't eat here - it's worse than fucking walmart: homophobes and liars. "On Monday, a Baptist Press story quoted Chick-fil-A's president Dan Cathy admitting his company's anti-gay ideology - a stance the company previously attempted to deny. But after two days of Cathy boasting about the story, the company's Facebook page now features a message flatly contradicting its head.

The items include examples of the Begram Ivories, seen at the British Museum's Afghanistan 2011 exhibition, and an important sculpture of Buddha. Both were stolen from the National Museum of Afghanistan during its civil war and ended up on the black market. The artefacts were passed to the museum for safekeeping, ahead of their return. The items were seized by customs officials and the Art and Antiques Unit of the Metropolitan Police as they passed through Britain, presumably for sale on the black market. All the artefacts were identified by experts at the museum. Other objects - some of which were saved by private individuals - include Bronze Age carvings and medieval Islamic coins. Neil MacGregor, director of the British Museum, said the pieces' restitution was "the outcome of the ongoing dialogue between our cultural institutions, as well as the support of the authorities, to identify and preserve items from the national collection of Afghanistan that had been illegally removed during years of conflict". Assisted by the Royal Air Force, the collection left the UK last week, bound for Kabul, via the army base in Helmand."
