CEO of Chick-Fil-A spills the beans...

Fucking bigot.

Even money this guy's own marriage falls apart within the next 5 years, due to his mistress(es) being exposed.

Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy has described gay marriage supporters as "arrogant" for going against God on marriage.

In an interview on the Ken Coleman Show, Cathy defended his company's support of groups opposed to marriage equality.

"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. "And 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."

3. They wouldn't admit it.

"Although his company's policies seemed to indicate otherwise, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy previously claimed that the company is not anti-gay -- 'not anti-anybody.'"

7. It's not parsing.

 

He could say he doesn't approve of black people, and that he doesn't approve of black and white people getting married, but he isn't a racist.

Does it make him not a racist just on his say so? No. He's still a homophobic, judgmental person, and it's irrelevant that he says he isn't. Everyone knows him by his actions, which is also in the "Good Book".

9. i don't think we disagree

i am saying that in his mind...he's not anti-gay...doesn't by any means mean that he is not anti-gay (my god, so many negatives in there i hope it's right).

5. Then he's dumber than I thought

 

Last I checked, you didn't have to admit you were a bigot to be one. He is one, and whether he admits it or not, it's the truth. He doesn't get to define what makes him a homophobe, anymore than racists get to define what makes a racist.

I could say "I don't like black people, but I'm not a racist" all day long and it wouldn't make me any less of a racist.

11. They meant "not anti-anybody" in a passive-agressive way. "hate the sin not the sinner" etc.


Its still bigotry, they're just trying to put a happy blue-eyed-Jeezus face on it.

2. This guy knows nothing

 

Except how to make a decent chicken sandwich, and it will probably come out that their chicken sandwiches are made with the blood of the innocent and the tears of the mild as secret spices. I wouldn't eat there now if I had to, and they make some tasty shit. I can't eat from there, though, without thinking of how awfully prejudiced they are.

It's pain and tears in every box.

6. If God is going to judge this nation,

I think we have a whole lot more to worry about than gay marriage.

10. He's just one person...I know many people who went to Christian counseling

and still got divorced.
Marriage success is not based on love of a god...it's based a lucky partnership, respect and love.
If he's talking about having sex within a marriage...some of the (see above) maintain without sex.
Marriage equality is about equality...

13. Stephen Colbert: "Let me check the Bible to see what Jesus said about gay marriage."

"Oh wait. He didn't say anything."

He did have a lot to say about fundamentalist hypocrites however.
