Chick-fil-A, home to a diverse chicken menu (and a few very supportive cows in a long-running marketing campaign), is facing push-back over comments from company President Dan Cathy.
Cathy told the Baptist Press that the company was "guilty as charged" in its support of traditional marriage. Cathy later visited a radio program and spoke further regarding the gay marriage movement.
"I think we are 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 to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about," he said in the interview.
On the Chick-fil-A Facebook page, a company representative noted that, "Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena."
Chick-fil-A has been criticized in the past for its donations to groups opposing gay marriage, but the latest round of comments seem to have struck a nerve with opponents and supporters in the gay rights debate.
