Chick-fil-A Controversy Still Cooking
Through the years, Chick-fil-A has come under scrutiny for their support of anti-gay Christian organizations, but they usually stay tight-lipped about the subject. That is until lately. Dan Cathy, who is the President of Chick-fil-A, claimed that he was guilty of supporting the biblical definition of marriage, which is between one man and one woman only.
Dan Cathy, who is the son of company founder S. Truett Cathy, went on to boast of his family owned business and reminded people that he was still married to his first wife. He knows that his stance is not popular with everyone and is glad that we live in a country where people can live with their own values and biblical principles.
He went on to say that we are inviting God’s judgment on the nation when we shake our fist at him and say that we know better what constitutes marriage. Don Cathy’s remarks sparked outrage by a number of LGBT groups and supporters.
David Badash, who is the founder of the New Civil Rights Movement, said that in the Cathy family’s mind, gay and lesbians don’t have families, no one gets divorced, and everyone has to be a Christian.
Chick-fil-A, which is an Atlanta-based company is being boycotted and protested by a number of very upset groups and individuals. Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, has given a donation of $2.5 million to help fund a same-sex referendum he hopes will pass in Washington state. Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, also gave $100,000 to support the policy.
Lots of people have many different views when it comes to personal lifestyles. We have learned to be tolerant and respectful of others. This kind of attack is vicious and brings us back to the Dark Ages. Let’s continue to move forward and respect each other even if we disagree with their life choices.
