Chick-fil-A President: 'Guilty as Charged' on Marriage

Ad Feedback

The president of Chick-fil-A is speaking out in support of traditional marriage.

In an interview with the Baptist Press, Dan Cathy said the popular restaurant chain is "guilty as charged" in its support of traditional marriage.

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

In a separate interview with the Ken Coleman show, Cathy suggested that the nation could face God's wrath over supporting gay marriage.

"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," Cathy said. 

"I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we should have the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is all about."

Some gay rights groups have opposed Chick-fil-A in the past for its stance on family values.

Cathy acknowledged that his stand may cost the company some customers but he said he intends to stay the course.
