Chick-fil-A: Serving Chicken, Not Acting Like One

I’ve known for a while that Chick-fil-A is a Christian company, but I just caught up with this most recent bit of news: President and chief operating office Dan Cathy, son of company founder and chairman Truett Cathy, said that same-sex marriage is a bad idea:

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’ I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.”

Responding to backlash from LGBT groups regarding prior comments and the company’s history of giving to pro-traditional-marriage groups, Dan Cathy had this to say:

“Well, guilty as charged. 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…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.”

Dan Cathy is absolutely right, and the people upset with him are torqued only because they can’t stand the slightest opposition—especially from a mainstream entity—to their destructive desires. Sorry (not really), but you won’t get a stamp of approval from Chick-fil-A, or from me.

In conclusion: Eat mor chikin.
