Skip to comments."Guilty as charged,' Cathy says of Chick-fil-A's stand for biblical & family values
Posted on 07/18/2012 4:40:36 PM PDT by RitaOK
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 a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.
"We operate as a family business ... our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. 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."

One is opening in my town next month, so I’ll finally get a chance to patronize their store.
Bring back the Blue Law...
God Bless Mr. Cathy!
I really wish I liked their food. I may just have to try harder.
Love the company and their ideals and courage and honesty, though.
No less a sophisticate than Esquire Mag named Chick-fil-a one of the nation’s best sandwiches.
ESQUIRE You can get a chicken sandwich anywhere, which may explain your low expectations. Boneless breast. Bun. Blah. But down south, there lives an eye-opener.
A come-to-Jesus sandwich.
The Chick-fil-A. Seasoned, breaded breast served on a toasted buttered bun with dill-pickle slices. No mayo. No sauce at all. Deceptively simple, yet transcendent. The hook is the breading: spicy, with an intoxicating crunch. The meat is always juicy, never chewy. The bun is like lingerie — there, but not, providing delicious support without obscuring the main flavor. The first bite changes everything you think you know about chicken. And about the need for condiments. —Allison Glock
It’s a rare commercial enterprise that will stand up for what is right.
I was disgusted to visit Office Depot and see they are sponsoring Lady Gaga’s “Born this gay” deal:
You know, we should each take it upon ourselves to have a kindly visit with the local managers of the GaGa Office Depot type! May be that we need to be heard out side of the keyboard.
Thank you for this information.
While already a fan of Chick-fil-A, we’ll now go out of our way to patronize this restaurant!
Just order a deluxe w/ letuce, tomato and slice of
cheese with a side of waffle fries and large lemonade.
Couple containers of the special sauce and you got lunch.
This is how our institutions and leaders must respond. No mincing words or parsing meanings. No shading truth or inclusive language. Straight-up and out front, baby!
Way to go Chcik-fil-A!
I’m afraid to google the writer of that review....afraid I’d fall hopelessly in love - dang!
LOL! like lingerie...
Lord help me!
& then there’s this:
OK The summer peach milkshakes are in! What’s not to like?
Yeah-—she does have a way with words—can really turn a phrase.
There is not a Chik-fil-A within 70 miles of me. Guess it's In-n-out time.
I’ve had some in Phoenix on vacation and it’s fine stuff.
Sadly only available in Ca, Az, Nv, Tx, and Ut.
Never been in one, but if I was near one, I would happily give them my business. Stand up for what you believe in is the name of the game, and never back down.
I too love Chick Fil-a....My cow keeps mooooing.....EAT MORE CHICKEN!!!!
God bless you Cathy!
In this day and age of atheist oppression (there is no secularism, you are either for God or against Him), it warms my heart to see people stand up for what is right, especially with such pride. It is a reminder to all of us of that which we fight against. Social conservatism is the bedrock of a healthy society and Cathy clearly understands this. Let us all help out Cathy by supporting Chick-fil-A.
I have been their COW! Very fun for elementary kids to see the chick COW.
The attack on God’s Word has been waged since God first spoke to humans.
Few are willing to stand up and say “God says in His Word: “.
MY word will NOT return to me void...
You will love them! They have absolutely the BEST chicken anywhere. The chicken biscuits will melt in your mouth!
The next time I a, traveling & I see one of their restaurants, I will patronize them.
I love Chick-fil-A! We don’t have many of them out here, but when I lived in NC, there were quite a few of them.
They were one of the very few businesses that was still closed on Sundays after the blue laws were stricken.
They wanted to give their employees the Sabbath, and a day of worship and rest.
Wish we had a chic-fil-A here.
Me, too. In all of the years I’ve been in Oregon, I’ve seen only one.
