Yesterday, ADA reported on the rumors buzzing around that the Christian-owned Chick-Fil-A fast food restaurant, fresh off its biggest day of sales due to support of CEO Dan Cathy's statements on his support for marriage, was buckling under pressure from the homosexual movement and halting support for pro-traditional family organizations and ministries.
Chick-fil-A stopped funding traditional-marriage groups in an effort to open a new Chicago restaurant, but the company initially kept quiet about the decision, prompting gay rights groups to speculate that the company feared a backlash from conservative customers."
From CitizenLink.com, "
“A part of our corporate commitment is to be responsible stewards of all that God has entrusted to us. Because of this commitment, Chick-fil-A’s giving heritage is focused on programs that educate youth, strengthen families and enrich marriages, and support communities. We will continue to focus our giving in those areas. Our intent is not to support political or social agendas.
CitizenLink also quotes Focus on the Family's President Jim Daly - Focus on the Family was reported by several sources as being one of the organizations Chick-Fil-A would no longer donate to - in showing his support for the restaurant, “Dan and Bubba Cathy are my Christian brothers and good friends. They and their company have long shared Focus on the Family’s commitment to helping build strong and thriving families — and they have in no way deviated from that deeply held and biblically inspired passion while working with the city of Chicago to open Chick-fil-A restaurants there.”
We asked you to show Chick-Fil-A support for their stand for marriage yesterday when it seemed as if their support might have been wavering. The company even more-so deserves our encouragement now.
Tell Chick-Fil-A thank you for not giving in.
: Kindly Thank Chick-fil-A and its Chief Operating Officer, Dan Cathy, for not giving in.
[you will reach a receptionist, who will then put you on hold to talk with a Chick-fil-A representative; also don't forget to thank Dan Cathy for his public defense of godly values!]
