Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy: “We support biblical families.”
Today’s Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the Day: David & Abishag (1 Kings 1:1-4).
King David was old and advanced in years; and although they covered him with clothes, he could not get warm. So his servants said to him, “Let a young virgin be sought for my lord the king, and let her wait on the king, and be his attendant; let her lie in your bosom, so that my lord the king may be warm.” So they searched for a beautiful girl throughout all the territory of Israel, and found Abishag the Shunammite, and brought her to the king. The girl was very beautiful. She became the king’s attendant and served him, but the king did not know her sexually.
I always picture this passage being recited by a visibly nervous palace press secretary. He’s standing behind a bank of microphones in Jerusalem, dabbing a handkerchief against his sweaty forehead. “… She became the king’s attendant and served him, but the king did not know her sexually. We have no further comment at this time and we are not taking any questions.”
Then he hurries off, muttering to himself how this was the last thing the administration needed to deal with right after Censusgate.
