Why would anyone involve his/her business in politics? You're not likely to change anyone's mind, but you are likely to damage your business. The people who really have a right to be upset by this imbroglio are the Chick Fil-A franchisees. I don't think they signed up to be involved in a culture war.

Wasn't his statement to a Baptist magazine? I think the leftist media picked up on it and politicized it

apok,

The Cathy remarks that went viral were spoken on the Ken Coleman Show, a nationwide syndicated radio program.

Why would anyone involve his/her business in politics? Ask a liberal, they seem to bring up politics at inappropriate times.

Also the Cathy Family is putting a principle ahead of profits: good for them.

Because the Left and its various elements are waging a direct war against faith and character in this country, that's why. If you do not take a stand, you will soon find yourself in a country where, for various reasons, is impossible to build that business you want because of the govt. and a distinct lack of anyone with any character to do what it takes to make a business to succeed, and to be safe.

Morality is the basis of Freedom. Without it, the society will not be Free. It descends into tyranny because more and more people abandon their personal responsibilities, and govt. is more than willing to take them up. A Free Society requires impeccable character from its citizens in order to remain Free from one generation to the next

You mean like Home Depot & Target.

Oh, wait... They support gays, so those politics are ok to get involved in.

Curt,

I don't think it's a good idea Home Depot or Target to involve themselves in political issues either, but at least if they do, they're not harming any franchisees. On the other hand, they might be harming stockholders, so best to remain on the political sidelines.

So, how is CFA harming franchisees and HD, Target, etc. not?

I've often wondered why the heck those businesses ever started getting involved in this issues too. Wouldn't it have been better for business to just be neutral?

The latest solid proof that Hollywood really can't stand traditional Christianity has arrived in an unfolding boycott of Chick-fil-A, a Georgia-based fast-food chain that's rapidly spreading franchises across America.

Chick-fil-A demonstrates a public faith by closing all its stores on Sundays and on Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's something the left ridicules but something anyone of any faith respects.

It's the company's donations through its WinShape Foundation that have launched the intolerant gay left into action. Chick-fil-A has dared to donate their profits to groups like the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (Horrors!) and the Marriage and Family Foundation (No!)....
