Chick-Fil-A CEO Made Covenant With Dad To Uphold Company’s Christian Values

Chick-fil-A has no plans to toss aside its Christian values no matter how much hate leftists send its way.

According to Business Insider, Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy wrote in a memoir, titled “Eat Mor Chickin: Inspire More People,” that he presented his children with a covenant to always uphold the company’s Christian values as it becomes a major force in the culture, which included philanthropic work, never opening on Sunday, and never taking the company public.

“We will be faithful to Christ’s lordship in our lives,” Cathy’s covenant stated. “As committed Christians we will live a life of selfless devotion to His calling in our lives. We will prayerfully seek His leadership in all major decisions that impact our family and others. Our family roles as spouses to our lifelong mates, parents to our children, and loving aunts and uncles will be our priority.”

Dan Cathy became the company CEO in 2013 and has since expanded the fast-food chain into an empire, becoming the third-largest chain in the United States. It has remained closed on Sundays and not wavered from its Christian values in the face of progressive bullying. In a statement to Fox News, Chick-fil-A promised to continue delivering on the quality service that has made them so popular.

“We are honored by the ranking and grateful to our customers for choosing Chick-fil-A, it’s truly our pleasure to serve them,” said the statement. “Our commitment to serving great food with gracious hospitality started more than 50 years ago with our founder’s first restaurant. Today, the more than 145,000 individuals who represent the brand in 2,400 restaurants make honors like this possible by continuing his commitment to service.”

The left-wing hatred for Chick-fil-A began in 2012 when Dan Cathy expressed support for traditional marriage, prompting boycotts across the country from LGBTQ activists.

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'” Cathy said at the time. “I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.”

“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” he said on the Biblical Recorder. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. … We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that. We intend to stay the course,” he said. “We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”

Just last year, two major publications wrote scathing articles begging people to boycott the business: The New Yorker and HuffPost. “If You Really Love LGBTQ People, You Just Can’t Keep Eating Chick-fil-A,” wrote Noah Michelson of HuffPost. When Chick-fil-A wanted to set up shop in New York City, Dan Piepenring of The New Yorker called it a “creepy infiltration” of the city.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Wire website.

    Chick-Fil-A, as our Constructional Rights read, have every legal right to their and Americas Christian Values In God We Trust. The word of God is Truth, no not one will survive without it. Babylon is on the rise an once again rared its head against God, to set forth attacks on Godly families, this is not against Chick-Fil-A as it may seem. Deception to deceive many to believe this is some sort of new founded love separate from Gods nature, when it is nothing more than sinful lust meant to be touting in the face of God to dare God. We all know the story Sodom and Gomorrah. Whats worse is those whom have not been taught from the word and have no clue the devastation in which Sodom and Gomorrah was left to this very day. In its day was a glory kingdom of the beauty of the Chaldee’s. To this very day nothing was left and no one has ever returned to live, only the beast an doleful creatures roam the land still buried, in the fiery brimstone that fell and destroyed this place because of these LGTBQ Sodomites plague of filth. Pay attention to the word: these are not your brothers and even Christ Jesus did not pray for the worldly Babylon. As a matter of fact warned to stay away, do not associate, that same spirit would work to attach itself to you and will even seem to be in a nice way at first until it goes into a rage. Fare warned they have no desire to live the truth they abhor the truth. Stay In God We Trust.

    God bless Chick Fillet and it’s Christian founder. When did this Christian country begin siding with Christian haters. I think our many foreign immigrants have done this. No offense to decent immigrants.
