I received an email this morning about Chick-fil-A and the stand they’re taking to firmly and vocally support God’s perfect design for marriage and the family. The article below says the rest…
Boston Mayor Vows to Ban Chick-fil-A
by Karla Dial
The nation’s second-largest fast-food chicken chain has been taking fire from gay activists since its president reaffirmed his and the company’s support for biblical values in a recent interview.
“We are very much supportive of the family the biblical definition of the family unit,” Chick-fil-A Chief Operating Officer Dan Cathy said in a recent radio interview. “And I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about.”
On Friday, the Jim Henson Company announced it is severing ties with Chick-fil-A, just days into a promotional campaign; CEO Lisa Henson ordered the company to donate the money from Chick-fil-A to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. And Boston Mayor Thomas Mennino announced plans to make it “very difficult” for anyone to open a Chick-fil-A franchise unless the company changes its stance on same-sex marriage.
As a result, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is calling on all those who support biblical values to show the restaurant chain their appreciation on Aug. 1.
“Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same-sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we’re considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers and intolerant,” Huckabee wrote on his Facebook page. “There’s no need for anyone to be angry or engage in a verbal battle. Simply affirm appreciation for a company run by Christian principles by showing up on Wednesday, Aug. 1 or by participating online.”
