During a discussion about repentance and shame regarding racism at a June 14 roundtable discussion at Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia, the fast-food chain CEO got up and shined the shoes of Lecrae, a Black Christian rapper, and said that the world needs to have a sense of shame, embarrassment, and “an apologetic heart.”

As he discussed repentance and understanding, Cathy took out a shoe-shine brush and knelt beside Lecrae.

“I invite folks to just, to put some words to action here,” Cathy said as he shined Lecrae’s shoes. “And if we need to find somebody that needs to have their shoe shined, we need to just go right on over, and shine their shoes.” […]

  1. The idea of cleaning feet of poor people or people lower down the totem pole is kinda a Christian, or at least a church, tradition.
    The pope has been known to wash smelly feet from time to time… doing it out of a sense of humbling ones self in Christian Love would be a good thing-but doing it to make a political point about your submission so your food chain looks woke enough to live is just DISGUSTING and shameful.

  2. I’ll keep my response, uh-hum, a little shorter – Dan Cathy is an ignorant jerk and Chick-fil-a should be boycotted.
