« A Big Announcement | Main | Long Lines at Chick-fil-A »

What Dan Cathy actually said The company invests in Christian growth and ministry through its WinShape Foundation (WinShape.com). The name comes from the idea of shaping people to be winners. It began as a college scholarship and expanded to a foster care program, an international ministry, and a conference and retreat center modeled after the Billy Graham Training Center at the Cove.

“That morphed into a marriage program in conjunction with national marriage ministries,” Cathy added.

Some have opposed the company’s support of the traditional family. “Well, guilty as charged,” said Cathy when asked about the company’s position. “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. …

“We are very much committed to that,” Cathy emphasized. “We intend to stay the course,” he said. “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.”

AMEN!!! I completely agree. I could go on and on at how double standard this whole situation is but the bible clearly says "in this world we will have trouble, but take heart He has overcome the world." I'm glad Chick fil A is bold enough to take a stand. I'll have a spicy chicken deluxe, no cheese on a wheat bun please.


The religious right is silent?

Seriously though, having an opinion is one thing. Actively pursuing laws that will squash another person's basic civil rights based on your opinion is another.
Chick-Fil-A can have all the opinons they want. It's the fact that they give money to organizations that fight to stop gay people from the basic civil right of being able to marry.
THAT's the problem. But by all means continue to be martyrs.

Thanks Mrsgator7 for the complete quote from Dan Cathy.


Sigh. I'm conservative, I don't care who gets married and how - I'm a follower of Jesus Christ, it is not my duty to judge a behavior that has nothing to do with anyone else but the people who are involved in it. I'm supposed to cloth those who have nothing to wear, feed those who have nothing to eat, and provide shelter for those who have none, I'm supposed to love my neighbor with selfless love. Constantly mentioning how homosexuality is wrong only destroys the souls of my fellow brothers and sisters - whatever sexual orientation they might have. It's not homosexuality that is destroying traditional family, it is promiscuity. If i'm gonna be speak out against anything, that will be it. No chick-fill-a for me, simply because if there was one confused 15-year-old out there, who once again felt like he is worthless and not accepted because of this statement, that's reason enough for me to skip out on the nuggets. McDonalds has good ones too...
