Chick-fil-A has been criticised lately for making millions in donations to groups that are anti-gay marriage, and now, it appears that the chicken chain is willing to fully embrace that image.Here’s what Chick-fil-A president and COO Dan Cathy (who’s also the son of the company’s founder S. Truett Cathy) had to say in an interview with the Baptist Press:
“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 operate as a family business … our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that”
He had more to say on “The Ken Coleman Show,” reports Steven Nelson at the Daily Caller:
“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.”
So, that’s all cleared up.
