    Was just about to post this. Hopefully the successors maintain his Christian outlook on business.

        Had a chicken sandwich and waffle fries this afternoon after hearing the news.

        I'm always still in trouble again

          And now wait for the LGBTers to start making statements saying his death was a good thing. No....really, just wait.

            It's been a couple days and I've heard no such thing.

              And why would gay rights advocates (not "LGBTers," since that isn't even a real word) celebrate Truett Cathy's death when it was his son who made the remarks about marriage?

                      The typical Huffington Post commenter is just as bad, if not worse, than the typical World Net Daily or Breitbart commenter. Educated folks wouldn't celebrate Truett Cathy's death for what his son said. And now let's please return this thread to its rightful place in the Memorial Garden instead of allowing TimelessTheist and his ilk to hijack a thread of remembrance by turning it into a soapbox to grind his personal axe.

                        I saw a number of comments on the day his death was reported. It is not something going to happen, it is something that already happened.
                        Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

                          I don't think Cathy cares what is said about him. His family might, but he is in the presence of Christ and has no concerns at all about his reputation on this planet.

                            As the thread creator, I request that we take a lead from SP and not turn this into a flame fest.
