Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy Says We Are 'Inviting God's Judgment on Our Nation' By Letting Gays Marry: AUDIO

CathyJeremy Hooper has kindly posted an audio clip of the "guilty as charged" comments by Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy, some of which I posted yesterday.

"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' 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"

Listen, AFTER THE JUMP...

And remember, only eat 'Chick-Fil-Gay'.

  1. Yet not "inviting God's Judgment" by promoting anti-Christian fiscal policies that keep the poor and destitute without help and aid and simply help the rich get richer?

    Ezekiel 16, yo.

    If the US wasn't "inviting God's judgment" with centuries of slavery, followed by the insult to humanity that was/is Segregation, I'm not sure why they think God will suddenly be more upset that Deb & Sue tied the knot after 25 years together.

    But hey, Christ said more about the sin of not helping the poor. Keep ignoring that, bigots.

  2. 20 years from now people will be asking, "What was Chick-Fil-A? Oh yeah, that company that tanked because it was full of homo-bigots."

  3. I agree with him. " prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about". So don't have the audacity to define marriage as only between a man and a woman.

  4. I agree with Beth......it isn't we gays who are trying to define marriage, we're just trying to gain equal rights that are being denied......

  5. Not one word about gay marriage or abortion in the New Testament. Tons of verses about what would be called "social justice". Loads of references to treating others, even the lowly and despised as you would like to be treated. Have to really agree with LITTLEKEWI. Have to think that when others focus on Marriage Equality or a woman's right to choose they do so to avoid looking at their own lives. What these CEOs are really doing is using their profits from selling unhealthy food to short circuit the separation of church and state and, impose their interoperation of religion on others.

  6. Is God going to punish you too ? Then move out to a Christian States. Thatll save you. Werk your chickens there.

  7. So any attempt to reason with Mr. Cathy is wasted time and energy. It's impossible to have a rational argument with someone whose arguments are based on superstition and magic, but I can make sure he never sees a penny of my money going to UpChuk-fil-a

  8. Go choke your chicken.

  9. Another fun reality - when a politician appears before you and starts talking negatively about Gays and Abortions, it's because they think you're stupid.

    Truly.

    They can't talk about fiscal policy because they know their fiscal plans won't help you. So they try to win you over with "GAYS! They're gonna come convert your sons in church and teach your daughters how to abort babies in school!" and millions of idiots buy it, cast their vote, and then wonder why they can't afford treatments for their child's leukemia.

  10. Isn't it funny who "god's wrath" almost always seems to miss the mark and strike those god-fearing folk in the Bible Belt?

  11. I've always loved Chick-fil-a and found myself making excuses for condoning my stopping in occasionally to get a good chicken sandwich....but no more...as good as the food is i'm not going anymore. I know i should've stopped a long time ago but i guess better late than never.

  12. Meanwhile, he has no moral qualms with clogging people's arteries and contributing to the cause of obesity (i.e. 'gluttony' in biblical terms).

  13. He shouldn't worry. His customers will all be dead of overindulging in his greasy battery chicken before god has any chance to deliver his judgment.

  14. Why don't all these holier-than-thou types spend a little time cleaning up their own damned homes and churches before they try to tell the rest of us how to live our lives?

  15. By the way, there are MORE Bible verse relating to gluttony than to homosexuality.

    "Be not among drunkards or among gluttonous eaters of meat, for the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty, and slumber will clothe them with rags"

  16. I take a dump in the mouth of that guy's 'god' every day, and wipe my arse with the pages of his 'bible'.

    Eat more kale!

  17. It is the height of arrogance to speak for god. Even if there isn't one it is still arrogant.

    I wonder if he flaps his arms like a chicken when he thinks he's made a good point?

  18. Have to wonder what has changed, because the gloves are totally off now and Mr. Cathy is no longer BSing about his companies' homophobic record. Now that he's basically another outspoken anti-gay, I'm curious to see what the defenders of this company have to say and if they will continue eating Chick-Fil-A or not.

  19. "Another fun reality - when a politician appears before you and starts talking negatively about Gays and Abortions, it's because they think you're stupid."

    Exactly - pure, dumbed-down pandering at its finest. It's unfortunate the stupid are too stupid to realize that.

    Yee-haw.

    It's even more unfortunate the GOProuders are willing to support candidates who resort to such tactics. You can be greedy with your trust fund from father after we're all equal.

  20. Okay, b*tch, the battle's on!

  21. @Francis: I'd guess that he's become more outspoken because he's getting older, is more involved in his church, and it's an election year.

    Rarely do high-level executives try to alienate any part of their customer base, so maybe he also thinks that no gays eat at Chik-Fil-A.

  22. STFU Chicken Man.

  23. I think it's awfully telling that we have a dyed-in-the-wool member of our nation's economic elite lecturing an entire generation about its "prideful, arrogant attitude". His homophobia is disgusting enough -- but even beyond this specific bigoted agenda, he's got a cauldron full of vitriol for anyone who would ever dare to change the world we live in. Don't you know that changing things is the exclusive prerogative of the moneyed few, you uppity peasant?

    Cathy shows how bigotry and socioeconomic elitism go hand in hand. They're rooted in a common mindset, and each serves the other's agenda.

  24. @TN My thoughts exactly.

    Posted by: kirkyo | Jul 18, 2012 2:16:27 PM


  25. Mr. Cathy may have a point. If so, he'd better get out there and start adding to the number of wives he has, because the Bible clearly condones polygamy and he is shaking his fist at holy scripture by daring to have only one wife.
