- title: Chick-fil-A's flippant response to years of LGBT controversy: 'Guilty as charged'
- summary: Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy defends the company's anti-gay activities on Biblical grounds.
Chick-fil-A has come under fire over the past few years for its strategy retreats featuring anti-equality speakers, its expressed policies against gay couples (married or otherwise) staying at its WinShape retreat centers, and considerable financing of organizations that work to fight equal civil rights for LGBT Americans (among other causes). Company COO Dan Cathy doesn't seem to care:
Some have opposed the company's support of the traditional family. "Well, guilty as charged," said [Dan] Cathy when asked about the company's position.
"We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.
