In his first interview since his infamous “guilty as charged” comment sparked a fast-food war, Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy continued to dodge direct answers about whether he’s still supporting anti-gay groups.
But this week Cathy told Atlanta’s WXIA that his chain is definitely “focused on families.” (A subtle nod to Focus on the Family, perhaps?)
“Chick-fil-A is focused on families. We’ve always been that way—we’re a family-owned business. We’re led by a family and our restaurants are operated by families, and we serve millions of families every week at Chick-fil-A, so we’re focused on the family.”
Repeating the word “family” like a mantra, Cathy went on to say, “Families are very important to our country. They’re very important, I think, to all of us that are concerned about being able to hang on to the heritage that we have, and we support biblical families, we’ve always been a part of that.”
Oh, is that biblical families like the ones polygamists patriarchs Abraham, Jacob and David belong to?
