CEO Dan Cathy wants his company to get past a controversy in 2012 over his anti-gay marriage comments by starting to focus more on attracting younger customers and leaving the public discussion of social issues to politicians
Chick-fil-A wants to move beyond recent controversy over the fast food chains stance on gay marriage as it looks to court younger customers.
CEO Dan Cathy told USA Today in an interview published Monday that hes bringing the company into a millennial-friendly era that will not only include new menu items and store locations, but a new perspective on what beliefs should and shouldnt be shared with the public.

Sounds like they’ve caved. Fine. I NEVER liked their food, but I did go there on a regular basis when I thought they stood for something.
...back to McDonalds and BK.
I agree. If they want liberals that badly, they can have them. I can live without CFA. I am just very disappointed. Next the Duck Dynasty family will cave.
What a disappointment. We like Zaxby’s.
I love their chicken salad sandwich. And they are right across the street from CFA.
Lets hold our fire. This is Time magazine after all.
Yes. But that will enable them to open more stores in homosexual-friendly environments (Blue-states).
So, obviously that is more important than integrity.
Its so crazy, they surpassed KFC probably because of our support.
The once-tiny, regional chain just surpassed giant KFC to become the nation’s largest chicken chain in domestic sales.
It was reported on various sites. A friend just posted it on FB. I didn’t believe it when I read it on FB and had to see for myself. If you find it to not be true, please let me know so I can apologize to CFA for my post on their FB page.
Huckabee covered it the other night, and Tony Perkins (FRC) weighed in also - it's an official cave.
So much for Ephesians 6:13, Mr. Cathy ("and having done all, STAND.")
They have good salads. I am not a fan of their fries, but I don’t like waffle fries much either. Good tea, good chicken, good salad. :)
They are going to decline big time if they cave
Now everyone calm down a bit. He didn’t exactly endorse gay marriage; from what I could read, he was saying that he was going to stop commenting about things publicly and worry about selling chicken. Is that caving?
all the business owner wants to is sell sandwiches and grow his business
I think he is right to refuse to discuss his PERSONAL beliefs with a rabid media looking to lynch him
bunch of baying dogs they have become -
Screw the media.
If they want to interview him, let them ask him about chicken sandwiches and organizational management.
Otherwise NO COMMENT
was he sent to a communist re-education camp??
Time would love to blow anything up into more than it is.
CHICK-FIL-A is lowering the heat?? They never applied any heat! It’s the mcCarthyite* left who are on a jihad to squash dissent and destroy anyone who disagrees with them.
*Yes, I get the irony. Joe McCarthy was right; there actually were Soviet agents in the State Department, and the left defended them tooth and nail.
Bob, if you don’t mind, tell me just where he caved.
He didn’t cave.
The reporting is clever though...
Eating out is a rip-off anyway...Food is expensive enough, much less expensive to eat at home..
