Chick-fil-A has historically been known for their sometimes not so overt religious values. Hello, they are closed on Sunday which would be the best time to catch hungry Christians after church service.
But recently the President of the organization, Dan Cathy confirmed what many already suspected in regards to Chick-fil-A's stance on gays. Cathy expressed in a recent interview with the Baptist Press that:
"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."
This of course has created a lot of stir among the GLBT community as well as folks who are against any kind of bigotry.
The truth is that they are a family owned company and they have the right to have their own views and opinions but as consumers we also have the right to decide who and what we support with our money and resources.
The sad thing is that Chick-fil-A has such a narrow minded idea of what a family looks like and you are obviously not very wanted if you are not a Christian.
I am a believer but do not subscribe to this type of devisive religious dogma.
Why does Chick-fil-A have to be such religious fanatics? Now I can't eat their anymore.
Why couldn't this gay controversy come from another franchise like Bojangles?
We are used to being treated badly there already....lol.
