Chick-fil-A chief: 'We support Biblical families'

THOMASTON, Ga. (AP) - Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy voiced his support for "Biblical families" in 1 of his first interviews since his earlier comments caused controversy regarding gay marriage.

Cathy told WXIA-TV in an interview published Wednesday (http://on.11alive.com/PONhtv) that families are important to "those of us who are concerned about being able to hang on to our heritage."

He added "we support Biblical families, and they've always been a part of that."

Cathy made the comments over the weekend at an event at his family's Georgia ranch.

Cathy set off a furor this summer, when he reaffirmed his opposition to same-sex marriage. Long lines formed outside Chick-fil-A restaurants on an "appreciation day" and opponents countered with "kiss-ins" by same-sex couples.

His father, S. Truett Cathy, started the Atlanta-based company in 1967.
