Chick-fil-A president: Gay marriage is ‘inviting God’s judgment on our nation’ [AUDIO]
The Daily Caller ^ | July 18, 2012 | Steven Nelson

Dan Cathy, the president and chief operating officer of Chick-fil-A, said in a radio interview this week that same-sex marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.”

Appearing on “The Ken Coleman Show,” Cathy spoke of his company’s pride in its socially conservative character, but then offered an assessment of same-sex marriage that might lose the popular fast food chain a few customers.

“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,’” said Cathy.

“I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we would have the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is all about,” he added...

I imagine they'll pick up some new customers to make up for those who don't go there anymore.

“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,’” said Dan Cathy.

He's absolutely right. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah? Righteous justice from Almighty God is not just a thing of the past or from Bible stories.

A careful reading of Romans 1 shows that homosexuality itself is a judgment.

I ate there for the first time ever last night precisely because of what I've read about their company philosophy. Not overly impressed with the food (my own triple dipped breaded chicken strips are three times larger that theirs and to-die-for, so I'm a self admitted snob) but the place was clean and the staff extremely courteous. Will be happy to go back ... again ... and again ...

Worse is that we now each fund abortions.

Watch. They’ll get more customers now. I hope they will track it internally and report outcome.

Every time I see one of those stoopid “Who would Jesus bomb?” posters, I want to ask the dunderhead; “Ever hear of Sodom and Gomorrah?”

Hey Vet, you ever get the mail I sent you?

I laugh at the liberals that complain that they won’t go to Chick-fil-a because it isn’t open on Sundays so the workers and owner can go to church. I’m sure his statement won’t affect his client base as the handwringing bedwetting liberals go apoplectic. I fear his statement will come true.

Yes, I haven’t called him yet. We’ve been scrambling to find a place to rent and putting the money together to pay for everything. We wanted the move, but the moving itself is hard, especially as neither one of us has good health.

I go to Chick Fil-et every chance I get

A good sandwich and helping a Conservative business.

His statement is right on the money.

Chick fil a is closed on Sunday. They’ve put their Christian philosophy into practice since I can remember.

I think a spicy chicken sandwich and a medium waffle fries is on the menu for lunch tomorrow.

I could eat the original sandwich plain or with just pickles at least once a day, but you’re right - it doesn’t take the place of home cooking.

I do love the Ice-Dream and chocolate malt shakes. And their peach shakes - taste like homemade peach ice cream.

Even pretty much secular types such as yours truly find the queer norming of America very very disturbing.

IIRC, Whataburger is similar.

They said Chick-fil-A wouldn’t succeed (ESPECIALLY in malls!) by not being open on Sunday. They were wrong. I love that they give away Veggie Tales books in their kids meals.
