Everyone is Talking about the recent comments made by Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy’s In a Recent Interview on Radio Station. According to Dan his View is this ““We’re 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 that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about.” Then he Spoke with another interviewer and said this in an article posted July 16 by the Baptist Press that he is “guilty as charged” and is very “supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.” Now last year Dan did another interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution In January of last year, he said : “we’re not anti-anybody,” adding, “our mission is to create raving fans.” The company also issued a statement to the paper saying that ”while my family and I believe in the Biblical definition of marriage, we love and respect anyone who disagrees.”…When asked to interview With the Washington Press regarding his more recent statements he responded ” Our Culture of the company is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender.” In addition, it said, “going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena”. Really? That should have been his initial Response.
B.MIchavery’s View: Now i feel as a person you are free to speak how you feel about anything you feel a way about, whether i agree with your views or not, everyone is given a voice to speak. NOW when you are in a postion as a president of a major company it may not be the smartest thing to Negate a person based on their Sexual Preference, and expecially in such a public forum do to you are a representation of your company and this could potentionally cause you to lose clients and or credibility as equal opportunity employer.I personally dont care who people marry or date, but i respect people and their opinions on it. I do feel as people we should respect people and their choices, and when we represent ourselves as “Christians” We of the christian faith should know that by negating people and their life styles is a form of judgement, NO SIN is bigger than any other in Gods eyes, so No one is sin free, regardless to what your sin may be, i feel as people we are still living in the slavery mentality( not just blacks ) im speaking people in general, separating people based on sexual preference is no diffrent than separating people based on color, religious beliefs etc! Now again he is free to discuss how he feels, but He should have been more selective in the platform he chose to voice it. #B.Michavery/Founder/Ceo
