Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy:
"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,' and I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is about," Cathy said in that interview, which can be heard here.
1 Kings 11
New International Version (NIV)
11 King Solomon, however, loved many foreign women besides Pharaoh’s daughter—Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites. 2 They were from nations about which the Lord had told the Israelites, “You must not intermarry with them, because they will surely turn your hearts after their gods.” Nevertheless, Solomon held fast to them in love. 3 He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines, and his wives led him astray. 4So, while the obvious interpretation of Mr. Cathy's words (let me guess, Mr. Cathy, you were made fun of in middle school for your name, and had to make it really clear you were a hetro boy) is that he's against gay marriage, the fact is that gay marriage hardly gets a mention in the Bible. Polygamy, however, is mentioned all the time. So if we're not to prideful and arrogant, we'd best stop trying to redefine marriage.
So I won't be marrying a man. As soon as I can find the right thousand women to settle down with, I'm going to do what the bible tells me to.
