"Guilty as charged,' Cathy says of Chick-fil-A's stand for biblical & family values
Baptist Press ^ | 16 July, 2012 | K. Allan Blume

Some have opposed the company's support of the traditional family. "Well, guilty as charged," said Cathy when asked about the company's position.

"We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.

"We operate as a family business ... our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that," Cathy emphasized.

"We intend to stay the course," he said. "We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."

I love Chick-fil-A. Who else in business does it quite like the Chicks restaurants. "Guilty as charged!" Awesome.

One is opening in my town next month, so I’ll finally get a chance to patronize their store.

God Bless Mr. Cathy!

I really wish I liked their food. I may just have to try harder.

Love the company and their ideals and courage and honesty, though.

No less a sophisticate than Esquire Mag named Chick-fil-a one of the nation’s best sandwiches.

ESQUIRE You can get a chicken sandwich anywhere, which may explain your low expectations. Boneless breast. Bun. Blah. But down south, there lives an eye-opener.

A come-to-Jesus sandwich.

The Chick-fil-A. Seasoned, breaded breast served on a toasted buttered bun with dill-pickle slices. No mayo. No sauce at all. Deceptively simple, yet transcendent. The hook is the breading: spicy, with an intoxicating crunch. The meat is always juicy, never chewy. The bun is like lingerie — there, but not, providing delicious support without obscuring the main flavor. The first bite changes everything you think you know about chicken. And about the need for condiments. —Allison Glock

It’s a rare commercial enterprise that will stand up for what is right.

I was disgusted to visit Office Depot and see they are sponsoring Lady Gaga’s “Born this gay” deal:

You know, we should each take it upon ourselves to have a kindly visit with the local managers of the GaGa Office Depot type! May be that we need to be heard out side of the keyboard.

Thank you for this information.

While already a fan of Chick-fil-A, we’ll now go out of our way to patronize this restaurant!

Just order a deluxe w/ letuce, tomato and slice of
cheese with a side of waffle fries and large lemonade.
Couple containers of the special sauce and you got lunch.

This is how our institutions and leaders must respond. No mincing words or parsing meanings. No shading truth or inclusive language. Straight-up and out front, baby!

Way to go Chcik-fil-A!

There is not a Chik-fil-A within 70 miles of me. Guess it's In-n-out time.

Never been in one, but if I was near one, I would happily give them my business. Stand up for what you believe in is the name of the game, and never back down.

God bless you Cathy!

In this day and age of atheist oppression (there is no secularism, you are either for God or against Him), it warms my heart to see people stand up for what is right, especially with such pride. It is a reminder to all of us of that which we fight against. Social conservatism is the bedrock of a healthy society and Cathy clearly understands this. Let us all help out Cathy by supporting Chick-fil-A.

The attack on God’s Word has been waged since God first spoke to humans.

Few are willing to stand up and say “God says in His Word: “.

I love Chick-fil-A! We don’t have many of them out here, but when I lived in NC, there were quite a few of them.

They were one of the very few businesses that was still closed on Sundays after the blue laws were stricken.

They wanted to give their employees the Sabbath, and a day of worship and rest.
