Not exactly surprise, but Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy has doubled (tripled?) down and said:
"Families are very important to our country," Cathy said. "And they're very important to those of us who are concerned about being able to hang on to our heritage.Okay, so since the Bible is so important to him, I have the following questions:
"We support Biblical families, and they've always been a part of that."
- Does his establishment serve pork?
- Does all the mammalian meat served by his establishment come from animals that have split hooves and chew their cud?
- Does his establishment serve milk and meat together?
- Does all the seafood served by his establishment come from fish with fins and scales?
(for those that don't realize, those are the rules set out in the Bible concerning what animals are kosher and what are not)
Yeah, I'm betting his establishments don't follow those rules despite his being so concerned with the Bible and all. See, I'd boycott, but I kind of follow those rules, so I wouldn't be eating there in the first place. If, however, they would like to follow the lead of some chains (such as McDonald's and KFC, which both have kosher branches in Israel), then I'd be more than happy to join the boycott in effect and not just in support.
