At Chick-Fil-A, Thigh Will Be Done
July 19, 2012 – Thursday
Fortunately for the marriage movement, Chick-fil-A’s slogan is “Eat More Chicken”–not act like one. The popular food chain, which is even more beloved by employees for its family-friendly policies, isn’t shying away from its biblical roots. Despite fierce pressure from the Left, CEO Dan Cathy is planting his feet in the face of criticism and reiterating that their business is as God-centered as it ever was. Asked about the franchise’s support for family values, Dan responded, “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.”
The company became a favorite punching bag of the Left when it donated lunches to a healthy marriage seminar last year. To most people, it was just a box of chicken. But it ruffled the feathers of homosexual activists, who saw it as a declaration of war. Shortly after, liberals started recruiting schools to boycott the restaurant–and some have. Texas Tech, Ole Miss, Duke, North Carolina State–they all want us to believe that Christians have no business doing business in America. Now, as more customers see Chick-fil-A standing for something definitive, not in the mushy middle, even more are rallying to the company’s side.
Yesterday, to the outrage of the liberal media, Dan put his passion for man-woman marriage on full display. “…I think we’re 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 we can try to define what marriage is all about.” Unlike J.C. Penney, whose homosexual pandering is driving the stock to record losses, Chick-fil-A is catering to mainstream America.
Join FRC in thanking the Cathys for standing their ground and refusing to be intimidated. Start by clicking over to our “EAT MOR CHIKIN” Facebook post. Then, drive through Chick-fil-A and drive home your support! – Tony Perkins
Not terribly surprising, especially since even though Chick-fil-A has never donated money directly to the FRC they have provided FREE CATERING for FRC and FRC affiliated events with other anti-gay hate groups.
