Cathy

While most websites noted the death of Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by focusing on his rags-to-riches story of building the largest chicken chain in America, the liberals at TheWire.com decided to take a parting shot by labeling Cathy as “polarizing” in its obituary.

Chick-fil-A’s Polarizing Founder S. Truett Cathy Has Died

The wire pointed to an article in Forbes to back up their claim that Cathy was polarizing, but that article focuses on Cathy’s son Dan who is the president and CEO of the company.

In 2012, Cathy inadvertently occupied the center of a national firestorm when comments he made against same-sex marriage were widely reported just as ballot initiatives to legalize gay marriage were being introduced in four states.

Even if the same-sex brouhaha was about S. Truett Cathy, it still isn’t a reason to call him polarizing.  The company is private and can say and do what it wants.  If customers don’t like it they can take their business elsewhere, which some did. At the same time conservatives rallied behind the company and turned out in droves to show their support after the media and the LGBT bullies pounced on the company.

What irks liberals in the media is that Chick-fil-A continues to prosper despite holding to Christian principles which include closing on Sundays which is unheard of in the fast food industry.

Cathy is probably having a big hearty laugh in heaven.
