Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”
As some expected in light of the death of strong Christian businessman and founder of Chick-Fil-A S. Truett Cathy, anti-Christian bigots jumped onto the internet to spew hate speech.
Most of the hate was directed toward Cathy and his strong Bible-based stances for life and running a business.
Some of the hate included statements like there was one less Bible-following Christian in the world and that it made “the world a better place.” Another said “oh good, the Chick-Fil-A [profanity deleted] is finally dead!” Several said that the “Chick-Fil-A founder is roasting in hell!”
S. Truett Cathy started in 1946 with one small restaurant selling his signature chicken sandwich. Over the next 68 years the company grew to nearly 2,000 restaurants and annual sales over $5 billion.
And it was all based on his belief in the Bible, its teachings for life and how to operate a business.
“It’s a silent witness to the Lord when people go into shopping malls and everyone is bustling, and you see Chick-Fil-A is closed,” he one told a reporter.
Tributes to Cathy included radio host Dave Ramsey, who said Cathy was “a godly man who loved his family well and showed us faith in the marketplace.”
