Is Chick-fil-A’s Dan Cathy A Life Time Homophobic ? Yes..and He's got Plans.
It may come as a surprise to those who have not been following the
news about Chick-fil-A, but the company is openly Christian (closing its
doors on Sundays and what-not), and they openly support the National
Organization for Marriage and are openly homophobic. So, it is not
surprising when Dan Cathy, the company’s president and COO, said in an interview:
“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. I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a
prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define
what marriage is about.”
His attitudes are not far off from the Alabama pastor who banned
Blacks from his meeting of pastors on the grounds that Whites are the
Chosen People, nor are they far from the attitudes of many racists back
during the Civil Rights movement.
Cathy also made it clear that he supports so-called traditional
marriage stating “Guilty as charged. 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.”
Oddly enough, the actual Biblical definition of a family is one man
and more than one woman, or at least that is the definition as it stood
in the parts of the Bible where homosexuality was condemned. In the
parts that Christians are actually suppose to follow- namely the
Gospels- there is no definition of marriage.
Chick-fil-A has been giving money routinely to anti-gay groups over the years. “In January 2011, the media reported that Chick-fil-A was co-sponsoring a marriage conference along with the Pennsylvania Family Institute (PFI), an organization that had filed an amicus brief against the trial ruling striking down Proposition 8 in California. PFI had also lobbied against a state effort to ban discrimination in Pennsylvania on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Another organization connected to Chick-fil-A through financial support, the WinShape Foundation,was also quoted as stating it would not allow same-sex couples to participate in its marriage retreats ...”
Mr. Cathy also is advocating with AFA are asking churchgoers to boycot 7-Eleven, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Airlines, American Girl, Blockbuster Video, Burger King, Calvin Klein, Carl's Jr., Clorox, Comcast, Crest, Ford, Hallmark Cards, Kmart, Kraft Foods, S. C. Johnson & Son, Movie Gallery, Microsoft, MTV, Mary Kay, NutriSystem, Old Navy, IKEA, Sears, Pampers, Procter & Gamble, Target, Tide, Walt Disney Company, and PepsiCo only because these businesses will hire and promote gays into high positions. And they will hire gay married couples....
The right is full of conservatives like Mr. Cathy... who will use their power and wealth to strike down freedom of life styles and other beliefs that do not fit their agenda.... Mr. Cathy along with many high power religious players on the right want to rewrite the U.S. Constitution to fit their religious agendas.
Hoping to turn America into a Theocracy. And they will do this if Mitt Romney becomes president. And your average meat head conservative thinks they believe in God...lol the only light they see is making them all blind to this...
You may not like gays...but take their rights away and it will only be a matter of time when the Good Old White Boy Fundamentalists will be rewriting all our laws and Constitution.
So if you love our Constitution vote for gay rights on marriage and do not vote for any GOP this election... You may not like that...but it's either that or we become like a middle eastern country.
Show me a conservative Christian...and I will show you a bigot...
