Dan Cathy: Chick-fil-A Supports 'Biblical Families'

Ad Feedback

Despite criticism and even threats to ban his restaurant in some areas, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy is sticking to his support for traditional family.

In a brief interview with the Atlanta TV station WXIA, Cathy hinted at the company's Christian values.

"Chick-fil-A is focused on families. We've always been that way," he said.

Cathy came under fire earlier this summer after saying the restaurant chain is "guilty as charged" in supporting pro-family groups that oppose same-sex marriage.

"Families are very important to our country... They're important to all of us who are concerned about being able to hang on to our heritage," he iterated in the latest interview.

"We support biblical families who have always been a part of that," Cathy added.

This was Cathy's first on-camera comment since he voiced his opposition to gay marriage in July in an interview with the Baptist Press.

Last month, Chick-fil-A said in a statement that it will continue to focus its giving efforts "on programs that educate youth, strengthen families, and enrich marriages."
