Well, guilty as charged. 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.
Chick-Fil-A COO Dan Cathy owned up to the company’s contributions to anti-gay causes in a recent interview. In other news, don’t eat at Chick-Fil-A. (via 12345pigeons)
Right. The biblical definition of the family unit. And which one would that be? Adam and Eve, who had no parents? Abraham, who passed his wife off as his sister so she wouldn’t be stolen by kings? Who slept with his wife’s servant to have a son? Who allowed his wife to toss out that servant and her son? Or maybe Jacob, the trickster, who had two wives, two concubines, and children from all of them?
Perhaps he means David, the great king of the Hebrew scriptures. You know, David who had a very special relationship with Jonathan, who had eight wives and more than ten concubines. Or how about his son, Solomon? We can find varying numbers for Solomon’s wives: was it 900? 700? With 300 concubines?
How about the family of Jesus himself, the most famously born bastard of all time? He was conceived out of wedlock, his adoptive father coerced into marrying his pregnant mother, and he tossed family relationships back into their faces during his ministry. (“You should have known I’d be at my father’s house!” “Who is my mother and brothers?”)
Which one of these is the biblical definition of the family unit? Because I certainly don’t see anything that looks like “biblical family” in 21st-century America! (via undercovernun)
