Chick-fil-A Gay Marriage Talk Riles Activists

Gay rights advocates say they’re surprised that the president of fast-food chain Chick-fil-A has taken a public position against same-sex marriage.

Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy said this week that his privately owned company is “guilty as charged” in support what he called the biblical definition of the family unit.

His comments to the Baptist Press, the news agency of the Southern Baptist Convention, unleashed a mix of criticism and support.

Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign that works for same-sex-marriage, said Thursday that Chick-fil-A “has finally come clean” after cloaking its positions for years.

Chick-fil-A in a statement said it has a history of applying biblically-based principles to its business, and that it strives to treat everyone with honor, dignity and respect.
