In case you missed it, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy said earlier this week in an interview with the Baptist Press that the company is “guilty as charged” in supporting the “biblical definition of the family unit.”
Well no shit!
But in an apparent effort at damage control, the company tried to walk back Cathy’s comments on Thursday, releasing a statement saying that “going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.”
However, Thursday’s statement fails to address the question of whether the company will continue giving money to anti-groups, which it has funded to the tune of about $5 million over the last 10 years.
On a side note, WOAI-TV in San Antonio has a poll up asking readers, “Will Chick-fil-A’s stance on gay marriage affect your decision to dine there?”
So far 66 percent say no, so perhaps you should go vote.
