Chik-fil-a CEO's visit to Miss. College postponed

CLINTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Dan Cathy, the President and CEO of Chik-fil-a who was scheduled to speak at Mississippi College on Thursday, has postponed his visit due to weather.

MC public relations tells us that Cathy was scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the college's third annual Faith and Business luncheon on Thursday. He is now scheduled to speak at MC on April 17. 

Cathy has been criticized for a tweet on his opinion on the Supreme Court's decision on gay marriage when he said his company supported the biblical definition of marriage. 

Though some groups called for a boycott of the business, many people around the country and here in the metro area rallied around Chick-fil-a restaurants in support.  Cathy will answer questions from students at MC regarding faith, business and career.

Cathy's visit at the college will be a private, invitation only event and will not be open to the media.
