More than 60 leaders of Christian and pro-family organizations signed a letter extending their support to Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy and his biblical position on family, the Christian Post reports. "We represent some of the largest policy and faith-based organizations in the country, and we are encouraging our members to 'Eat Mor Chikin,'" states the letter, signed August 6 by leaders including Mathew Staver of Liberty Counsel, Tom McClusky of Family Research Council Action, the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez of the Hispanic Evangelical Association and Dr. Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. "As you are likely aware, biblical values and companies that support them are under attack," the letter went on to say. "It is incredibly important for successful men like you, representing a national brand, to unapologetically stand for God's truth as revealed in the Scriptures. The example of Chick-fil-A and your leadership has encouraged many. We hope and pray that you receive the blessings of the Lord for your faithfulness. You and Chick-fil-A are in our thoughts and prayers."
