“The Biblical Definition of the Family Unit”

July 28, 2012

Dan Cathy, the (in)famous president of Chick-fil-A, says that he supports “the biblical definition of the family unit.” “We don’t claim to be a Christian business. But as an organization we can operate on biblical principles.”

Polygamy is rampant in the Old Testament. Abija had 14 wives, Abraham 3, David 18, Solomon 700 (!), etc.


Admittedly, there’s no Adam-and-Steve here (unless you count David and Jonathan). And it certainly doesn’t follow that if the Bible condones polygamy, it therefore condones same-sex marriage.

But still … “the Biblical definition of the family unit”?
