Chick-fil-A CEO and Gay Activist Are Now Friends

The leader of a national gay-rights group says he’s coming out?as a friend of Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy.

“I’ve gotten to know Dan, he’s gotten to know me. He’s shared concerns about young people, about Chick-fil-A being used for certain purposes,” Shane Windmeyer, executive director of Campus Pride, told ABC News.

Last year, Cathy sparked a national controversy by telling a radio host that “we’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage. And I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about.”

Windmeyer said that Cathy called him last year, during the heat of the controversy that led national gay-rights groups to protest Chick-fil-A. Cathy reached out seeking advice and understanding, Windmeyer said. Windmeyer was a guest of Cathy’s at this year’s Chick-fil-A Bowl between LSU and Clemson at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

The activist also says Chick-fil-A has stopped donating to anti-gay groups, according to his review of the company’s 990 tax forms.
