BETRAYED: Chick-fil-A CEO Calls Response to LGBT Activists a Mistake
Wow. Is nothing sacred anymore? To think we just had Chick-fla-A day. Unreal.
Check it out:
The head of Chick-fil-A called his company’s response to LGBT activists’ criticism about the restaurant’s financial support for groups that don’t support same-sex marriage and his decision to voice his own opinions about the issue a “mistake,” but added that his personal stance on it has not drifted.
In an interview last week with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Dan Cathy, 61, who serves as the fast-food chain’s president and CEO, said that reflecting on the events of 2012 had helped him to emerge as a wiser individual.
“Every leader goes through different phases of maturity, growth and development and it helps by (recognizing) the mistakes that you make,” Cathy said. “And you learn from those mistakes. If not, you’re just a fool. I’m thankful that I lived through it and I learned a lot from it.”
In July 2012 Cathy told The Biblical Recorder that the company “was supportive of the biblical definition of the family unit.”
In a separate interview that summer with “The Ken Coleman Show,” Cathy also said that America was “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.” The organization was also revealed to be a financial backer of Focus on the Family, a conservative Christian group that does not endorse same-sex marriage.
