But recently they've come under fire publicly for being anti-gay, to which company president and CEO Dan Cathy responded: "Well, guilty as charged."
Cathy went on to promote the "biblical definition of the family unit."
"[T]hank the Lord," he said, "we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."
But it's interesting to note that Chick-fil-A is cherry picking the biblical principles it wants to observe.
After all, bacon is on Chick-fil-A's breakfast menu, even though its consumption is explicitly prohibited:
"And the pig, because it parts the hoof and is cloven-footed but does not chew the cud, is unclean to you. You shall not eat any of their flesh, and you shall not touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you."I do not expect a response from Chick-fil-A on that.
