Generally speaking, we love our Chick-fil-A here in the North Druid Hills-Briarcliff area. Heck, when the popular fast food chicken sandwich restaurant opens a new location in our midst, we go nuts. (Evidence can be found on this site, for instance.)
But that particular meal – for some – may have gotten a little more complicated this week after the restaurant chain's president Dan Cathy publicly proclaimed that his company does not support gay marriage.
"We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit," Cathy said in article published Monday by the Baptist Press. "We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that."
Chick-fil-A has been under fire from gay rights groups since early 2011, when it was revealed that an independent operator in Pennsylvania supplied food to an event sponsored by a group formed to defeat same-sex marriage initiatives.
How has Chick-fil-A's position on gay marriage affected your patronage of their restaurant? Tell us in the comments section below.
