Not that this is any big surprise to us gays, however Chick’s head honcho Dan Cathy made past claims denying that Chick-fil-A were anti-gay, and that his company has “no agenda against anyone.” He now admits what we all have known and says about his anti-gay marriage stance “Guilty as charged”
Cathy said that he does not feel right billing Chick-fil-A as a Christian business because, as Christian business mentor Fred Roach once said, “There is no such thing as a Christian business … Christ never died for a corporation.”
However, Cathy told the Baptist Press he aims to operate the restaurant chain “on biblical principles.” When asked whether his company had an established position against marriage equality, Cathy said, “guilty as charged.”
He added, “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.”
Disgusting. I have commented on Chick-fil-A in numerous posts on this blog about their anti-gay ways. And how money you spend at their establishment goes to supporting causes that fight to deny LGBT equality. Chick now needs a full on boycott. Period.
Cathy is right about one thing, it is a free country and we can share our opinions. So here is mine; Cathy is a douche.
