In an interview with the Biblical Recorder, and carried by the Baptist Press, Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy talked at length about the famously closed-on-Sundays fast-food joint’s Christian values. He also responded to criticism that Chick-fil-A is opposed to gay marriage:

“Well, guilty as charged,” said Cathy when asked about the company’s position.

“We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit. 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 operate as a family business ... our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that,” Cathy emphasized.

“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.”
