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"


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

  1. Why isn't every single faculty member and college student with one of these "outlets" on their campus writing in protest? The corporate sponsors (typically, Chartwells Dining and Sodexho) are *required* to comply with the University's nondiscrimination statements. But we've given these vendors a "pass" because there's been no formal proof of discrimination. That's changed now.

    Protest! Demand removal of these outlets! Hit the company where it hurts, and the only place they care: money.

  2. I find it greasy, but my closest Chik-fil-A has to have their security directing cars in and out from about 1130 to 1 every day. I prefer Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich.

  4. This is a prime example of Bible perversion used to justify hate and intolerance. Unacceptable...I just put a piece up at Huff Po about it. Time to raise a ruckus. It's 2012, why aren't we past this?!!

  5. He's wasting his money and his company's money. There's no evidence that gay marriage in Mass. and other states has caused any social ills or wrath of deities. His wife (if he's married) should not be pleased with the loss of capital, dividends and investment returns as a result of these actions.

  6. Lordy...I wish someone would school these morons! First of all...the planet Earth has more then 1 Country addn why God would be upset with the United States is silly...Gay Marriage isnt even legal in this Country...yet! It's only legal in 6 States. If God is indeed angry Dan...I would think he would seek vengence on any of the 10 or so Countries in the world where is it actually 100% Legal.

  7. @Paul R, I was thinking the same thing, regarding your last line. I think Mr. Cathy has decided that the benefit in speaking out and promoting his bigoted agenda won't come at a net loss of customers. He may be right, we'll have to see. Now that he's categorically come out as anti-gay, people who were straddling the fence in regards to eating at Chick-Fil-A have a decision to make.

  9. At the top of Towleroad, under Andy's latest photo banner, as I type this:

    Free Chik-Fil-A Coupons!

    Yes, I know it's an ad bot, but still.

  10. If One Million Moms can cause a fuss at JCPenney/ToysRUs/Starbucks, etc. why can't One Million Gays do the same for this nitwit and his over-priced chicken sandwiches?!

  11. aren't Chik Fil A's all Mormon owned and operated, hence the never open on Sunday?

  12. And this is news because??? Who cares, he's just some schmuck with anti-gay-marriage view. Lots of people in the country share the same view.

  13. I clicked into this story and find an advert here on Towleroad for "free Chick-Fil-A" vouchers ! THIS is one of the reasons we will never have equal rights in the US - we gays are too stupid or too lazy to even boycott one store !

    It's frightening how a man so insane can get so rich. Capitalism is very scary !

  14. To say this in spite of all the scientific evidence to the contrary is just hateful ignorance. The kind of ignorance that is chosen.

  15. Why does this site have ads for "Free Chick-Fil-A Coupons"?

  16. Donald, Chick-fil-a is not Mormon-owned. I think the Cathys may be Baptist.

  17. Why not invite God's judgment? It has to be better than Chik-fil-a's.

    Posted by: Rich | Jul 18, 2012 4:37:31 PM

  18. inviting gods judgement really?? Well lets put the Catholic Church abuse at the top of that list !!!!

  19. Just more bible nonsense. I am always amazed that in the 21st century some people still don't realize that the bible is nothing more than a collection of myths, contradicions and made up bloody history written by primitive people thousands of years ago who believed among other things that sickness and disease are caused by devils.

  20. LGBT organizations.... START YOUR CAMPAIGNING against chick fil a!!!! And find a gay friendly competitor to promote

    So far, our gay organizations have been Shamefully silent in wake of this huge companies drawing of the line in the sand against us!!!

    Posted by: Kyle Ohten | Jul 18, 2012 5:46:42 PM

  21. I'm wondering too why LGBT leaders aren't orchestrating a campaign against this company, with ads, pictures, videos, press releases, something! To send a message as a united community against their proud homophobia

  22. How the hell did we manage to get them to open a store in WEST HOLLYWOOD?! The entire city needs to ban together to make sure te Chik Fil A on highland goes out of business. Complete stain on our city!
