Dan Cathy, president and chief operating officer of Chick-fil-A, said he takes pride in being able to live out his Christian faith through his restaurant chain, but that America as a nation is challenging God's principles when it comes to the gay marriage debate, the Christian Post reports. "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 on The Ken Coleman Show. "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. 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 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."
