Chick-fil-A Dares to Affirm Faith

text size A A A

Recently the Baptist Press a religious newspaper interviewed Dan Cathy and when questioned about the company policies and beliefs he made a statement affirming his faith. The statement:
"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

He did not state that we will not serve gays, we hate gays, they are not welcome in our place of business. He stated "We are very much supportive of the family - the biblical definition of the family unit"

During an interview on the Ken Coleman Show he affirmed his faith. His statement:” 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,'" Cathy said. "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."

What is the fuss about? Why are alderman and mayors declaring they will block opening of this restaurant? Is it wrong to express your faith? I pray that intercessors will not take this lightly. We are living in the age of Anti-Christ. It is acceptable to support same sex marriage but damnable to support heterosexual marriage (marriage between a man and wife according to the word of God - I didn't make it up it is GOD'S WORD)America was built on Godly principles but it is acceptable to take prayer out of schools. We need to be concerned when some suggest we take "in God we trust" off money. We need to be concerned when some suggest we remove "one Nation under God, indivisible" should not be part of the pledge of allegiance.

Mayor Rahm (high/lofty) Israel( Prince of God, Champion of God, and God will prevail) Emmanuel(God with Us) stated: 'Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values. They’re not respectful of our residents, our neighbors and our family members. And if you’re gonna be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicagovalues,' I strongly urged Mayor Emmanuel to personally read the statement made by Cathy. Tell me how he disrespected the gays by affirming his belief in God and in God's laws. Is it disrespectful to support God's moral law and support "biblical definition of marriage?

I live in Chicago and I have a right to be respected for my values. My values may be different yet I have a right for representation in the city of Chicago. The Mayor's statement seem to imply that if you don't support same sex marriage that you don't have a right to do business in Chicago. I PRAY THAT IS NOT WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY.CHICAGO HAS BEEN BLESSED AND SPARED MANY TRAJEDIES BECAUSE OF THE PRAYING PEOPLE IN CHICAGO. I HOPE THAT BUSINESS BUILD ON GODLY PRINCIPLES ARE WELCOME IN THE CITY OFCHICAGO. PLEASE INCLUDE US IN YOUR DIVERSITY PLAN.

I am a believer in God's biblical definition of marriage. If it is ok for you to acknowledge your support of same sex marriage, it is equally ok for me to support marriage between a man and a woman. We must recognize the attack of the enemy. I am asking intercessors to intercede on behalf of Chick-fil-A. Homosexuals unite and come out in droves when they are offended. Believers have rights to. Let's support any business that stand up for righteousness and let them know we will not be BULLIED.

SPEAK THE ANSWER NOT THE PROBLEM. THE ANSWER IS IN THE WORD OF GOD. Heavenly father we come in the name of your son, Jesus, thanking you for the shed blood of Jesus. We asked that you would cover Chick-fil-A and every business built upon Godly' principles. We say to them according to Matt 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye , when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely , for my sake . 12 Rejoice , and be exceeding glad : for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Father we ask that for every door that is closed to them because of their affirmation in your word that you will open up 7 new doors. Let their blessing run and overtake them. Let your angels go before them, mercy and goodness follow them. Let your presence be with them. We speak increase as you bless them, enlarge their territories, and keep your hand upon them. Thank you father that your people that trust in you shall never be ashamed. If you are for us who care who is against us. Greater is the God in us than Satan in the world. Let every weapon formed against them backfired. Let the body of Christ recognized this attack of the enemy and unite in prayer against the enemy. 1 Chronicles 29:11 KJV Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Matthew 6:13 the glory, forever. Amen. WE THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO AND WE FOREVER GIVE YOU THE GLORY.
