It’s true, the late S. Truett Cathy was an outspoken Christian who integrated Christian ethos into the company’s vision and mission. Orthodox Christianity has since its beginning and through today opposed homosexual behavior, so there’s no surprise here. Because of its owners’ also Christian views about Christ’s love for sinners, the company has shown love and grace — through fried chicken sandwiches, of course — to communities in need over and over again, including communities grieving over gay loved ones. Apparently showing love to imperfect people is too confusing a stance for New Yorker writers to handle.
Following the shooting at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, local folks gathered in line to donate blood. Employees of a nearby Chick-fil-A opened the restaurant, although it’s normally closed on Sundays…and gave donors food while they were waiting. Stories like this abound, yet there’s no mention of this kind of repeated generosity from the company.
Liberals can’t stand the success of a Christian-run company like Chick-fil-A selling folks fried chicken sandwiches successfully with a smile.
