Chick-fil-A president: Gay marriage is ‘inviting God’s judgment on our nation’

We don’t have any Chick-fil-A in Boston so I’m already boycotting it:

Dan Cathy, the president and chief operating officer of popular fast food chain Chick-fil-A, said in a radio interview this week that legalizing same-sex marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.”

Appearing on “The Ken Coleman Show,” Cathy spoke of his company’s pride in its socially conservative character, but then offered an assessment of same-sex marriage that might lose the chain a few customers.

“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,’” said Cathy.

  1. What about heterosexual divorce? Is there anything wrong with that?

    Because the divorce rate in this country is through the roof, thanks to a bunch of people who make stupid decisions and then cheat.

    Oh. Wait. Is cheating also going to invite divine judgment? Because I think it might. The inivisble old man with the beard seems to get pissy about that.

    1. Imagine having begun to really lose your hair at around age 26.

      When I was 28, I just said, “Screw it” and shaved my head. I’m happy that I no longer pay a barber. All the same, I’d rather have my old, nice hair back.

  2. We don’t have any Chick-fil-A in Boston so I’m already boycotting it:

    Burlington Mall food court. Oh well, they still have an awesome Indian takeout place there.

    1. http://www1.whdh.com/news/articles/local/boston/12008049651392/boston-mayor-vows-to-keep-chick-fil-a-out-of-city/

      BOSTON (AP) — The mayor of Boston is vowing to block Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in the city after the company’s president spoke out publicly against gay marriage.

      Mayor Thomas Menino told the Boston Herald (http://bit.ly/OevB9z ) on Thursday that he doesn’t want a business in the city “that discriminates against a population.”

  3. Chris – You’re not missing much at this place. A few have popped up in the Chicagoland area. It’s your typical substandard fast food. (And apparently over-the-top political leanings.) As Cartman would maringally say, “Screw you guys, I’m going to Taco Bell.” (No wait. That’s even worse.) Nevermind. 😉

  4. If Landover Baptist had a food court, Chick-fil-A would be in it.

    After the Burger King lettuce photo and knowing Chick-fil-A is hating on a lot of my nice neighbors, I think I’m going to continue to avoid fast food.

  5. Cathy doth protest too much… Clearly a closet case compensating for being picked on for his last name too much in school.

  6. I for sure don’t agree with his stance for several reasons (atheist, gay friends), but the Board at CFA has already spoken out and said they don’t agree with his stance. They don’t discriminate against Gays ( who can work there and eat there), so I don’t see why people need to go crazy here. Also, people have the right to not go there, but the government should not step in and refuse business licenses for saying something he believes, that would be a violation of freedom of speech. Freedom isn’t just for the things we agree with.

    1. And when is the board supposed to have said this?

      The fact that they will accept gay people’s money doesn’t make up for the fact that it goes to anti-gay causes.

  7. Tolerance by definition means a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc., differ from one’s own; freedom from bigotry. Interesting many have no beef against going to WalMart (almost everything there is made in China) or drinking Russian Vodka; both countries that were and still are atheist nations that killed millions of dissidents. Apparantly heterophobia is ok. I have many friends who are gay and I would want only the best for them. But I have to side with what scripture states: This is a great mystery, but I understand it to mean Christ and his church. This verse is speaking of marriage between a man and a woman, to be an example of Christ loving his bride (female) the church.
