There’s not much doubt, even from the context of this single interview, that Cathy is referring to the union of husbands, wives, and children when he discusses support for the traditional family, but that’s not the same thing as condemning anyone.

<snip>

That’s a rather forceful statement against the re-definition of marriage – delivered with an invocation of divine judgment that understandably makes some listeners uncomfortable, and is arguably intended to do so – but still not a personal condemnation of anyone.



How stupid do you have to be to say it's not a condemnation? Does he have to come out and say "I hate fags, they should die."?

This country is going to hell at Warp 10.

But nice try at recasting the discussion trying to make those upset about Chick-Fil-A's stance into non-nice individuals. We`re upset about ACTIVE discrimination, ACTIVE and WILLFUL bigotry and discrimination, not views or words. Big, big, big difference.

Said anything or not, the company and its owner took action--in the form of millions and millions of dollars in support of bigoted and discriminatory laws. Linky is here. *That's* what`s at issue here, not something he may or may not have *said*.

@Angillion

First of all I do not believe he is refusing to serve gays food.

Secondly - It does not mater if he told nobody or everybody what he thinks, it's still his personal view.

I don't understand why a businessman can`t his own business the way he want`s to.


So you`d be fine with a business that refused to serve, for example, Jews?

He`s taking his views into the public arena, both in business and in politics. That makes them fair game for public criticism and political opposition because they`re no longer personal views.
