Dan Cathy, who is president of the Chick-fil-A fast food chain, said this week that his company supports “Biblical families.” The comments are among the first since Cathy made controversial comments this summer criticizing gay marriage. The earlier comments had sparked protests and boycott threats. From The Associated Press:
Cathy told Atlanta TV station WXIA in an interview released Wednesday (http://on.11alive.com/PONhtv) that families are important to ‘‘those of us who are concerned about being able to hang on to our heritage.’’
He added ‘‘we support Biblical families, and they’ve always been a part of that.’’
Cathy made the comments over the weekend at an event at his family’s Georgia ranch.
