Chick fil-A Statement

I talked earlier today personally with Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick Fil-A about the new reports that Chick Fil-A had capitulated to demands of the supporters of same sex marriage. This is not true. The company continues to focus on the fair treatment of all of its customers and employees, but to end confusion gave me this statement:

“There continues to be erroneous implications in the media that Chick-fil-A changed our practices and priorities in order to obtain permission for a new restaurant in Chicago. That is incorrect. Chick-fil-A made no such concessions, and we remain true to who we are and who we have been.”

    I hope and pray they are telling the truth. It is sad that a conservative business can't support who they wish,but a liberal company can support whoever without backlash. Still if they do cave, me and my family will have to say good-bye. I am not a hateful person but christians are watching this country slip from God. We are doing nothing about it. I am not going to spend my husband's hard earned money on a company who has an agenda against what God says. Why would you knowing your money comes from God support a company whose agenda is against what God's word says. I just don't understand it. I support no sin. I don't care what the sin is. I will not support a company who chooses to invest their funds on organizations who go against what the Word says. I have already stopped shopping at different stores because of the causes they support. We need to make a stand, and say enough is enough. We are going to take our country back. The way our founding fathers wanted this country to be. The way God wanted it to be. We need our blessing back on this country. We need to stop kicking God to the curb. Our children need to know why this country was so great. It is because we believed in God and God blessed this nation.

    There is an internal fight in Chick-Fil-A between the CEO and other executive leadership. So in all likelihood, both sides are telling the truth. It will be interesting to see if the fight becomes public or if both sides try to resolve it quietly.

    I am so proud of Mr. Cathy and Chick-Fil-A for sticking to their core principles. America needs more people who have the moral fortitude to remain steadfast in their beliefs.
    I have never eaten at Chick-Fil-A before, but from now on, I will be a customer.

    Gove. Huckabee, I just heard your commentary on your Saturday program and you hit the bullseye. Thanks for saying what needed to be said.

    Re: "Chicago Alderman caves, will not block Chick-fil-A"

    Folks, slows down and get things from the horses mouth. Here is an excerpt from an article posted by Anne Sorock at legainsurrection.com.

    "While many news outlets are running headlines saying that Chick-fil-A will no longer donate to anti-gay groups, this information appears to stem from one press release put out on “The Civil Rights Agenda” website and Alderman Moreno’s comments to the Chicago Tribune, rather than primary sources. Chick-fil-A has not responded to repeated requests from the Tribune for confirmation. The actual sources currently made available are: the “Chick-fil-A: Who We Are” memo and the statement from the WinShape Foundation. Neither of these makes any mention of donations to anti-gay groups; rather, the language states they are “not supporting organizations with political agendas.” Until more information is released, it appears premature, at best, to say that this means “no more anti-gay donations.”
