Chick Fil A CEO Tries to Move Foward – But Has Not Changed His Beliefs
Nearly a half century after opening his first Chick-fil-A, Truett Cathy announced in November 2013 he was stepping down as chairman of the restaurant chain and leaving it in the hands of Dan Cathy, his oldest son. Even if Truett is slowing down, his fast-casual juggernaut isn’t. It boosted sales by $500 million to an estimated $4.6 billion in 2012.
DAN CATHY as we know has donated MILLIONS $$$ to groups who are against gay people and even including ones that want to criminalize and deport gay “pedophiles”. Dan Cathy has repeatedly made statements opposing same-sex marriage.
I think the time of truths and principles are captured and codified in God’s word and I’m just personally committed to that, [Cathy] said. I know others feel very different from that and I respect their opinion and I hope that they would be respectful of mine.
He recently talked with the Atlanta Journal-Constition and admits his beliefs have NOT changed, but yet he wants his business to move beyond his personal beliefs.
Almost two years after he made headlines by throwing his support behind traditional marriage and later decried a pair of Supreme Court decisions that favored same-sex unions, Cathy hasn’t changed his mind. But he said Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A has no place in the culture wars and regrets making the company a symbol in the marriage debate. READ MORE AT AJC
