Chick-fil-A isn't alone in the refusal to keep their religion hidden in the closet. Many American companies are Christ-centered establishments. Here's a look at a few:


Chick-fil-A not alone in touting religion alongside products

As one of the longest running sponsor-owner relationships, Interstate Batteries has sponsored NASCAR's #18 car since 1994. Chairman of the Board Norm Miller, who touts his beliefs on the company's website, is also a board member for Dallas Theological Seminary and the Dallas Seminary Foundation.

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy is not the only business tycoon who refuses to hide his faith under a bushel — top executives from some of America’s biggest companies are born-again Christians who talk about their beliefs more often than their balance sheets.

Major corporations like Tyson Foods, Interstate Batteries and Hobby Lobby were either founded or are now led by outspoken and deeply religious bosses. While some of the companies distinguish between their corporate identities and their leaders’ faith, others embrace it.

—Norm Miller, chairman of Interstate Batteries, discusses his faith and salvation at length on the company’s website, even inviting people to write him for advice on prayer;

—Tyson Foods, the Arkansas food processing giant, offers chaplains to counsel its employees on life issues like deaths or family emergencies;

—In-N-Out Burger, the popular California-based hamburger chain, prints “John 3:16” on the bottom of its cups;

—Hobby Lobby, the Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts store chain, cites its commitment to “honoring the Lord” on its website and closes its 500-plus nationwide locations on Sundays, as does Chick-fil-A.

“We believe that it is by God's grace and provision that Hobby Lobby has endured,” its website reads. “He has been faithful in the past, we trust Him for our future.”

Cathy sparked a national controversy last month when he told the Baptist Press that he was “guilty as charged” for supporting the “biblical definition of a family,” leading to widespread criticism from gay rights groups and the mayors of at least three large U.S. cities — Chicago, San Francisco and Boston — who said the chain was no longer welcome there.

Considering there are more religious than non-religious people in the US, I think yesterday proved leftist attacks on any of these businesses will result in a circling of the wagons, so to speak.

Praise God for these men & women of faith. :icon_sunny:

Just think, if they'd never said a word about Mr. Cathy's remarks... none of this would've happened. Liberals are definitely their own worst enemies.

Plus the Demos are putting the Issue of Marriage onto their platform. So see this is not about the issue of Rights. It's about redefining what marriage is. All pressed by the Left and their Progressives. We can't have the odds stacking up against him any better than they already are. He is back up to 58% don't approve of his handling the economy. Plus I think after tomorrow comes out with those Unemployment Numbers and that Statement of Unemployment has gone up in every major city in the US.....and the Pols going home for 5weeks. I think he is toast! Close call, he will fight it in the Supreme and lose!

If we can just get those same crowds from yesterday to the polls on Nov 6th, we'll be OK. ;)

Maybe this will bring them to the polls in November. :)

I hope Democrats start complaining about other businesses that aren't afraid to let their religious stances be known. Chick-Fil-A had its best day ever in response to the unliberal liberals and their whining and threats.

I'm curious as to what some counties/states laws are in regards to PUBLIC DISLPLAYS OF AFFECTION for the August 3 "kiss in".

Amen to that!

What Wendy's did and what the people did in response to Chick-Fil-A is the kind of grassroots movements we need to keep the government from making more laws against American's.
