Dan Cathy, Chick-Fil-A‘s COO and the lightening rod who set off a fast-food firestorm, said in an interview this week “we support biblical families,” and used the word “families” six times in eleven seconds. Cathy, whose family charity, the Winshape Foundation, has donated $5 million to anti-gay organizations, said little else to a local Atlanta reporter.
“Families are very important to our country,” Dan Cathy said. “And they’re very important to those of us who are concerned about being able to hang on to our heritage. We support Biblical families, and they’ve always been a part of that.”
Last month, Cathy told Mike Huckabee his $4 billion company has made no concessions, and will continue to support and fund anti-gay organizations, despite reports to the contrary that allowed Chick-Fil-A to build in Chicago.
