ATLANTA, June 28, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) Chickens dont tweet, but Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy does. Cathy took to Twitter after Wednesdays twin Supreme Court decisions in favor of same-sex marriage to express his opposition to the controversial rulings.
Sad day for our nation; founding fathers would be ashamed of our gen. to abandon wisdom of the ages re: cornerstone of strong societies, Cathy posted to the social media site, which limits messages to 140 characters.
He later removed the tweet.
Chick-fil-A spokesman Jerry Johnston said that Cathys remarks represented his opinion, and not those of his company. Johnston said in a statement that, Dan Cathy, like everyone in this country, has his own views. However, Chick-fil-A is focused on providing great-tasting food and genuine hospitality to everyone.
Asked why Cathy chose to delete the tweet, Johnston told The Huffington Post, He realized his views didnt necessarily represent the views of all customers, restaurant owners, and employees, and didnt want to distract them from providing a great restaurant experience.
Click "like" if you want to defend true marriage.
Statements Cathy made to the Baptist Press last year in support of traditional marriage put Chick-fil-A at the center of a controversy that saw the chicken sandwich chain targeted by boycotts and threats of government retribution.
Efforts by homosexual activists to harm the chicken chain with boycotts, vandalism, and threats proved unsuccessful. Supporters of traditional marriage mobilized en masse to support the chain, organizing a Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day that saw record-breaking sales and interminably long lines at drive-thru windows nationwide.
But the media firestorm was so intense that when convicted terrorist Floyd Corkins showed up at the headquarters of the Family Research Center with a handgun and opened fire at the height of the controversy, he was carrying 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches along with the ammunition in his backpack.
In a videotaped confession, the 28-year-old homosexual activist said he intended to kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-fil-A sandwiches in victims faces, and kill the guard. He hoped the atrocity would make a statement against the people who work in that building...and with their stance against gay rights and [for] Chick-fil-A.
That he removed it was cowardly.
But I’m getting used to it, sadly.
so, we’ll see if the left once again tries to destroy this business.
Does everyone remember all of the discrimination lawsuits filed against Chick fill A? Nobody?
That’s because there weren’t any. The company does not discriminate against homosexuals or any other group. The company was targeted for destruction by the left because of the personal opinion of the owner of the company.
We are getting to a point at which free speech is at risk. Companies and owners of companies can support the homosexual agenda, or any other politically correct cause. But they are not free to voice opinions which contradict the politically correct orthodoxy.
I want to know if CFA in faggot states has to give marriage benefits to their faggot employees.
He shouldn’t have deleted it. The Founders would be ashamed that we are ashamed to defend the values this nation was founded on.
The founders cannot be more ashamed than I ,or Mr. candy are.
Its a disgrace, and it will get worse.
20,000 plus years of moral precedent overturned by the American leftists. Nothing to see here folks. Move along now.
DON’T GIVE UP WHEN YOU KNOW YOU ARE RIGHT.
To the headline: I do not disagree
Very sad he removed the tweet
The word homosexual is a relatively modern word, the Founders said sodomites and they talked about removing them from civilized society
He should stand his ground. Damn corporate Nazis can go all in for homosexuals pushing for Obamacare but a CEO can’t express disdain for those things without being pilloried into submission? Nearly have of America agrees with him so what is he afraid of? Come on people have some gonads. This is getting ridiculous. This is police state thought police crap. Is this the world you want. You are placing your grandkids at risk by allowing this horrid behavior to be normalized. Is it going to take one of your kids getting attacked or groomed for you to wake the hell up? The cowardice sickens me.
Perhaps goodness is innately vulnerable and destined for defeat (temporally). It plays by the rules; evil has no rules.
> I want to know if CFA in faggot states has to give marriage

The whole U.S. is a faggot state now.
Moreover, according to “Justice” Kennedy, those who do not support “gay marriage” are, in his own words, “enemies of humanity”.
That means you, and I, and most, if not all, of this message board, the Roman Catholic Church, the Southern Baptist Conference, the many independent Baptist conferences, the Slavic Baptist churches, the many Mennonite conferences, the myriad Amish churches, the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, the Apostolic Lutherans, and countless millions of other Christians, are all “enemies of humanity” in Justice Kennedy’s estimation.
To call Justice Kennedy an effete, ivory tower sophist would be an understatement by several orders of magnitude.
We play by the rules while the other side lies and cheats.
Time for some Chik-fil-a !!!
Good excuse to go there now. 3 within a few miles of me.
Awesome food and employees, clean place and free wi-fi....
there are societal taboo prohibitions for a reason. Violating those longstanding prohibitions incures negative consequences that most people do not understand in the least. I have friends that are gay whom I do respect so it’s difficult for me to even broach the topic but the fact remains, all of society will suffer the negative consequences of their actions.
I went to Chick-fil-A for lunch yesterday. Couldn’t find a table, the place was so packed. I thought I had traveled back in time to Aug 2.
I guess if sales ever go down, all he has to do is create a little controversy. I really wish there was one near here.
