(KMOV) – Fast-food chain Chick-fil-A’s traditional stance on marriage is sparking controversy.
Company president Dan Cathy discussed same-sex marriage Monday with Baptist Press.
He said the restaurant sole supports “the Biblical definition of the family unit.”
Cathy’s comments have spread across the internet. The company on Wednesday was one of Google’s top trending searches and Chick-fil-A’s Facebook and Twitter pages were filled with angry comments.
But the response was not all negative. Some argued the company had a right to stick by its principles.
