Deleted Tweet From Chick-fil-A Head Calls Gay Ruling ‘Sad Day’

It appears Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy still has a few things to say about same-sex marriage.

Although the fast-food chain issued a statement today that it would rather “focus on running an exceptional restaurant company” than discuss political matters, Cathy apparently issued a tweet this morning that said the following: “Sad day for our nation; founding fathers would be ashamed of our gen. to abandon wisdom of the ages re: cornerstone of strong societies.”

The chain became the focus on a nationwide controversy last year when Cathy spoke out against same-sex marriage.

The tweet was provided to Speakeasy by a reader. It no longer appears on Cathy’s Twitter account, but was re-tweeted by at least one of Cathy’s Twitter followers, according to Topsy.com, which tracks Twitter activity.

Chick-fil-A spokeswoman Carrie Kurlander responded to the apparent tweet by saying: “Dan Cathy, like everyone in this country, has his own views. However, Chick-fil-A is focused on providing great tasting food and genuine hospitality to everyone.”

1. He's gunning for another Chick-fil-A appreciation day.

As for me,
I'll continue to avoid ever tasting Chic-fil-A food.

3. You know what leaves a bad taste in my mouth besides Chick-fil-A?

All the bullshit the LGBT community had to take from many fellow DUER'S on this issue. It may be done & over with, but will never be forgotten.

7. He is correct. Bigots are sad. They should be. They should also be marginalized.
