"He never stated anything negative."
Uh oh. Turns out we have a bit of manufactured outrage on our hands, folks. The umbrage cup runneth over as of late concerning the chicken chain's supposed stance on gay marriage. But what's being reported was never actually said. Apparently in the actual source interview with Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy, he only spoke about biblical values and the traditional family in a positive light. Talked about why the company thinks the traditional family is good for business and life in general. Nothing negative. The topic of gay marriage didn't even come up. (For the slow-witted, "traditional family" doesn't simply equate to "not gay".)
And interestingly, this part seems to have been totally missed by the mainstream press:
“We don’t claim to be a Christian business,” Cathy told the Biblical Recorder in a recent visit to North Carolina. He attended a business leadership conference many years ago where he heard Christian businessman Fred Roach say, “There is no such thing as a Christian business.”
“That got my attention,” Cathy said. Roach went on to say, “Christ never died for a corporation. He died for you and me.”
So, a business leader is interviewed, he talks about what he believes and how he sees the world, and he's lynched in the media? Doesn't sound very tolerant to me. It also highlights the false notion that there are only two sides to any belief or civic debate. And of course, that's just not true.
