Chick-fil-A President Says “We Support Biblical Families”

Despite Chick-fil-A’s efforts to appease to the gay community, its President, Dan Cathy, reiterates the company’s support for “biblical families.”

Via 11AliveNews:

In one of his first interviews since the controversy that surrounded his chain of restaurants, Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy did not say much — but did mention his support for “Biblical families.”

Cathy spoke with 11Alive’s Matt Pearl this past Saturday at an event at the Cathy family’s ranch, The Rock Ranch, in The Rock, Ga. While offering an interview about the ranch and its various fall events, the Chick-fil-A president did agree to answer a few questions about the major topic of conversation: his earlier statements this summer about gay marriage. Back in July, Cathy told the Baptist Press the company stands “guilty as charged” for its stand on Biblical and family values. “We are very much supportive of the family — the Biblical definition of the family unit,” he said. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”

This past weekend, Cathy sidestepped questions about the controversy but did reiterate the company’s devotion to families. “Families are very important to our country,” Cathy said. “And they’re very important to those of us who are concerned about being able to hang on to our heritage. “We support Biblical families, and they’ve always been a part of that.”

Rick Ross Talks To Rolling Stone About Being A Correctional Officer, Chic-fil-A, And The Dark Knight Shootings [Video]

Nice… so he’ll talk to the white folks about his past… but gets upset when one of his own asks him about it:

 

Rick Ross Talks To Rolling Stone About Being A Correctional Officer, Chic-fil-A, And The Dark Knight Shootings

 

 

Ross suggests that the seizures he suffered late last year were probably the result of smoking too much weed: ”I’m most definitely an avid user, a pothead, however you want to look at it. I call it green caviar. It’s like a short vacation – it helps me chill out. And people really love it when I chill out, because I can really be a dickhead.”

For the first time, Ross talks about his past life as a corrections officer – an opportunity, he says, to “wash my hands” after his best friend was sentenced to 10 years for trafficking cocaine and heroin: “This was my best friend, who I ate peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches with, and pork and beans with, my buddy, my partner, my number-one dude. Suddenly I’m talking to him over federal phone calls. Hearing the way it was building, I knew I couldn’t take nothing for granted,” says Ross. “My homey’s father was a huge influence on my life, too . . . He was the one who was like, ‘Yo, go get a job somewhere, man. Go be a fireman. Or go be a fucking corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere.”

After he was suspended from elementary school for horseplay, Ross began attending a small Christian school: “They wanted me to learn the Ten Commandments. I told them I didn’t really have time for that right now,” recalls Ross, who eventually made his way back to public school and excelled as an offensive lineman in high school football. “I got through high school on my popularity and shit,” Ross says. “But my grades was never good. I was never good at math.”

Ross was digusted by the recent theater shooting in Colorado (“Such a cowardly act”), but he’s not in favor of gun control: “I think we all have a right to bear arms, whichever amendment that is.” Even assault rifles? He shrugs. “I got ‘em.”

Ross favors freedom of speech – all kinds: “Chick-fil-A obviously took their stand. That’s their right – the same way the pro-gay people are taking their stand. I believe everybody got the right to live their own life the way they want to.” So does that mean he’d support a Chick-fil-A boycott? “Naw. I love that spicy chicken.”

“National Same-Sex Kissing Day” At Chick-Fil-A Restaurants Across America!

As you probably know, the national “kiss in” day at Chick-fil-A was August 3rd. And while some branches of the store faced relative calm amidst a storm of pro-gay sentiment and hot girl on girl action, others weren’t so lucky. One Hollyweird Chick-fil-A restaurant had to call the police after it was vandalized, and in general, the whole thing appears to have been a bit of an excuse for fawkery.

Aside from the shenanigans, pro-gay supporters were able to kiss and tell in many Chick-fil-A restaturants across America, to the probable anger of many conservative groups and Cathy family.

Well-grab your same sex partner and pucker up!

Blessings to all of God’s People!!!

Black Churches Rally Support Around Chick-fil-A’s Stance On Gay Marriage

I don’t think the black church should have gotten involved in this Chick-Fil-A Fiasco.

But it does look like a few churches really lined up to buy chicken to support the movement against gay marriage.

The CEO of Chick fil a started a firestorm of controversy by coming out and saying that he believes that marriage is a union that should involve only one man and one woman.

That led to a big turnout for Chick fil a appreciation day, with millions of people showing up to support the business.

But the move has also gotten some unwanted support from Neo Nazis and top black conservatives, which serves to taint the conversation a bit.

The affiliations with Neo Nazis have been used to bolster the case in support of those who disagree with what Chick fil a has been doing.  Chick fil a argues that their disagreement with gay marriage is not a form of discrimination.  Instead they argue that the bible tells them that homosexuality is an abomination and that they are simply speaking to their beliefs.  Gay rights groups, on the other hand, believe that the disagreement with gay marriage is consistent with a strong bias against the gay community.

“Being against gay marriage is not being anti-gay,” said Project 21 member Demetrius Minor. “The last time I checked, Chick-fil-A wasn’t expressing a desire for gays not to eat at their restaurants or seek employment with them.”
