Stand with Chick-fil-A in Support of Traditional Marriage

By   •   July 24, 2012

Just a few days ago, Dan Cathy, President of Chick-fil-A, affirmed his stance on the sanctity of traditional marriage. The restaurant chain has been, and continues to be, under a concerted attack from same-sex marriage advocates.

I applaud the courage of Cathy and Chick-fil-A to take a bold stand for the biblical definition of marriage between a man and woman in a culture that has grown openly hostile to the Christian faith and its followers.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has called for a National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day on Wednesday, August 1, to demonstrate support for the company. I would like to join with him, and ask that, if you live near one of their restaurants please drop by and let them know how much you appreciate them and their stand. 

I have known Dan and his father, Mr. Truett Cathy, for many years and I respect how their company was founded upon and operates by Christian values.

In the words of the bold, biblical prophet Daniel who refused to bow to the evil culture of his day:   “The people who know their God will display strength and take action” (Daniel 11:32, NASB).

Thank you and God bless you,

    Dan Cathy is a man after God's own heart. I stand with him in traditional marriage. Why is it that anyone can defend their belief yet when a Christian does all hell breaks loose. Satan u ain't winning! Jesus is Lord!

  2. Ken says:

    All of the above …and… you make a great sandwich. I thinks it's just as important that your product reflects the Character of the One you claim to serve. Thank you

    We drove an hour from the San Francisco Bay Area to get to the closest Chick-Fil-A near Sacramento. We support you as you stand for God and biblical values. Even at 2:00 p.m. there was a line out the building. God bless your courage!

  4. Jessie says:

    Praising God for Franklin Graham and Mr. Cathy for taking a stand! I especially loved the comment posted by Gilchrist K C posted at 7:49 A.M. that is what I think but could not put into words.

  5. Jill says:

    God Bless Chick-Fil-A for taking a stand against people who change Gods word to justify their sinful needs! Go back in the closets, please.

    Was at Chick-Fil-A on Aug 1 at 1:00 PM, on Mason Road in Katy Texas. Line extended from edge of shopping center all the way to the street, about 300 yards, with a huge traffic jam of cars lined up trying to get into the Chick-A-Filet, God Bless.

    Was at Chick-Fil-A in Skyland North Carolina today, August 1st. A standing line wrapped half way around the building. Cars were backed up into the K-Mart parking lot for drive through. 11/2 hrs. later…still the same. It was an awesome!
