Indivisible co-authors defend Chick-fil-A’s stance on marriage in today’s Wall Street Journal
SAN FRANCISCO, Ca (August 3, 2012) – Jay Richards and James Robison, co-authors of The New York Times bestseller Indivisible: Restoring Faith, Family, and Freedom Before It’s Too Late, defend Chick-fil-A and its president in today’s edition of The Wall Street Journal in an op-ed entitled “Richards and Robison: The Chicken Inquisition.”
Chick-fil-A is enduring relentless criticism for recent remarks made by its president, Dan Cathy, who stated his support of the historical Christian view of marriage between one man and one woman. Richards and Robison believe the attacks on Chick-fil-A are unfair and may be comparable to the controversial HHS mandate provision in the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.
“The campaign against Chick-fil-A may be a more ominous attack on religious freedom than the Affordable Care Act’s mandates,” Richards and Robison said in the op-ed piece. “ObamaCare would force millions of Americans to fund actions they find morally reprehensible but leaves them free to denounce it. The chicken inquisition, by contrast, directly targets religious speech itself.”
Richards and Robison expose the real motives behind attempts made by politicians in Boston, Chicago and elsewhere to keep Chick-fil-A from operating or expanding in their cities.
“Even some on the left have seen this for what it is: an attempt by government officials to punish a company because of the religious views of its president,” Richards and Robison said.
“Americans are free to eat or not to eat at Chick-fil-A,” Richards and Robison said. “But we need to push back strongly against attacks on this company. If you're concerned, we hope you'll join us and hundreds of thousands of other Americans this week by giving Chick-fil-A your business.”
Indivisible addresses a host of political issues – including abortion, same-sex marriage, poverty, education and limited-government principles. A special Catholic edition of Indivisible is available from Ignatius Press with a foreword by Ignatius Founder and Editor Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J.
