Tim Thomas: ‘I stand with Chick-fil-A’ 07.26.12 at 5:33 pm ET

Tim Thomas loves him some Facebook, and the owners of Chick-Fil-A love them some homophobia. Thomas, the master of using social network to ruffle feathers, weighed in on the Cathy family, which owns Chick-fil-A and opposes gay marriage, Thursday.

Wrote Thomas:

I stand with Chick-fil-A.

Chick-fil-A is privately owned by the Cathy family. The company president, Dan Cathy, drew the wrath of gay rights advocates and supporters when he made recent statements that some have alleged are anti-gay.

Cathy told Baptist Press that the company was unapologetically in favor of traditional marriage.

‘€œGuilty as charged,’€ he said. ‘€œWe 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.’€

In a separate interview on the Ken Coleman Show ‘€” Cathy suggested that the nation could face God’€™s wrath over the redefinition of marriage.

‘€œI 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. ‘€œI pray God’€™s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we would have the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is all about.’€
