Dan Cathy, president of Chick-fil-A recently had this to say in a radio interview:
“We’re 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. 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.”
Following backlash after those remarks, Cathy then told the Baptist Press in an article posted July 16 that he is “guilty as charged” and is very “supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.”
Of course this has resulted in plenty of calls for boycotts and condemnations from all sorts of people. It’s a bigoted position Cathy holds (though he does have a clear right to hold it and even promote it), so it’s no surprise that there has been so much outrage. However, I don’t think this is the best reason to avoid eating at Chick-fil-A. Yeah, it’s obviously a good reason. A damn good reason, in fact. But it isn’t the best one. The best deterrent is actually the fact that Chick-fil-A tastes like shit.
