On the bright side, this could mean that there will be no more unhinged liberals in Chick-Fil-A’s stinking the stores up
(The Blaze) The president of the popular fast food chain Chick-fil-A has ignited a social media firestorm after saying his company opposes gay marriage.
“Guilty as charged,” Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press when asked about the Atlanta-based company’s support of the traditional family unit.
“We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that,” he said in the interview, posted Monday.
Who could possibly have foreseen that CFA would be for religion and family values? It’s not like every single store is closed on Sunday, even written into the contracts for their mall locations, partly so that employees can “worship if they choose”.
While Cathy’s comments are in line with Chick-fil-A’s history of espousing Christian values – its 1,600 chicken restaurants are closed Sundays – his remarks touched off a wave of anger on the company’s Facebook page.
There’s also plenty of freakout elsewhere, such as at the Democratic Underground and Towleroadgay, which recommends a boycott.
Cathy acknowledged to the Baptist Press the company’s position was bound to be unpopular with some people, and possibly lose some customers.
“We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles,” he said.
Thankfully, we live in a country where people can still do that. We haven’t quite gotten to the point where the progressive left has made cooperation with their values involuntary, much like Nazi Germany.
