Chick-Fil-A will always stand for their values regardless of what comes their way…
No matter how much hatred leftists give their way, Chick-fil-A has no intentions to cast aside its Christian values.
Chick-fil-A founder S Truett Cathy stated in a memoir entitled “Eat Mor Chickin: Inspire More People,” that he made a covenant with his kids to always maintain the Christian values of the business as it becomes a major force in the culture, including philanthropic job, never opening on Sunday, and never taking the company public.
“We will be faithful to Christ’s lordship in our lives,” Cathy’s covenant stated. “As committed Christians we will live a life of selfless devotion to His calling in our lives. We will prayerfully seek His leadership in all major decisions that impact our family and others. Our family roles as spouses to our lifelong mates, parents to our children, and loving aunts and uncles will be our priority.”
In 2013, Dan Cathy became the company’s CEO and has since extended the fast-food chain into an empire, becoming the United States’ third largest chain. In the presence of progressive intimidation, it stayed shut on Sundays and did not waver from its Christian principles. Chick-fil-A pledged to continue providing the quality service that made them so famous in a declaration to Fox News.
“We are honored by the ranking and grateful to our customers for choosing Chick-fil-A, it’s truly our pleasure to serve them,” said the statement. “Our commitment to serving great food with gracious hospitality started more than 50 years ago with our founder’s first restaurant. Today, the more than 145,000 individuals who represent the brand in 2,400 restaurants make honors like this possible by continuing his commitment to service.”
In 2012, when Dan Cathy voiced approval for traditional marriage, left-wing hate for Chick-fil-A started causing LGBTQ activists to boycott the chain.
“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 at the time. “I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.”
“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” he said on the Biblical Recorder. “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 want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that. 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.”
Just last year, two major publications wrote scathing articles begging people to boycott the business: The New Yorker and HuffPost. “If You Really Love LGBTQ People, You Just Can’t Keep Eating Chick-fil-A,” wrote Noah Michelson of HuffPost. When Chick-fil-A wanted to set up shop in New York City, Dan Piepenring of The New Yorker called it a “creepy infiltration” of the city.
