Chick-fil-A's gay marriage stance causing a social storm

The fact that Chick-fil-A is a company that espouses Christian values is no secret. The fact that its 1,600 fast-food chicken restaurants across the country are closed on Sundays has long been testament to that.

But the comments of company President Dan Cathy about gay marriage to Baptist Press on Monday have ignited a social media wildfire.

"Guilty as charged," Cathy said when asked about his company's support of the traditional family unit as opposed to gay marriage.

"We are very much supportive of the family - the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that," Cathy is quoted as saying.

Strong feelings of support and disagreement have followed, making Chick-fil-A the top Google trend on Thursday morning as the company's Facebook and Twitter pages were burning up with arguments.

"Hate mongers! Never again! Not another $ from me," Duke Richards wrote on Facebook.

"Goodbye Chikkk-fil-a! your food was delicious, but I can no longer eat nuggets filled with hate!" read a post by Blake Brown.

"I am truly ashamed of the recent admittance from Mr Cathy about your bigoted company practices. I hate the fact that my money was used for this. I will never support your company (and) will make sure anyone I know does not either," Mikell Kirbis wrote on Facebook. "While I'm not a Christian I know that hate is not in God's plan nor (is) ignorantly picking sections of the Bible to brandish. Good bye and I hope either you change your ways or close down."

But the support for the company was just as vehement.

"Just wanted to say I'm proud that you stand firm in your beliefs. You knew the risks, and still took the plunge. May God bless this company with abundance. Never back down!" said a Facebook post from David Jones.

"Thank you for standing up for what you believe. The truth is not hate. It's just the truth," wrote Sharon R Boyd.

"I love the values that this restaurant stands for and will support it every dang chance I get! Pay no attention to the morons spewing hate!" read a post from Raymond Joy.

In a statement to CNN on Wednesday, the company said it would stick by its principles, but it tried to withdraw from the heated social media debate over them.

"The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 restaurants run by independent owner/operators. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena," said a statement from Don Perry, the company's vice president of corporate public relations.

The Human Rights Campaign, a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender advocacy group, said Wednesday that Cathy's comments gave consumers a clear choice.

“It's strange to say, but it's good to see Chick-fil-A finally admit to their anti-LGBT policies," Michael Cole-Schwartz, the organization's director of communications, told CNN. "Now fair-minded consumers can make up their own minds whether they want to support an openly discriminatory company or take their business elsewhere.  As the country moves toward inclusion, Chick-fil-A has staked out a decidedly stuck-in-the-past mentality.”

Polling shows increasing support for gay marriage in the United States. A CNN/ORC Poll conducted in late May found 54% of respondents favoring the legal recognition of gay marriage with 42% opposed. The poll had a sampling error of 3%.

    How come Christians are the only ones running around spreading hate and intolerance? Religion created hatred. Religion deminishes morals. Their actions are the opposite of their beliefs. Can't they see? Will they ever? If you're too afraid of life without religion, keep your beliefs to yourself already. How loud do the rest of us have to yell that. You are doing no good, only evil. The 'good' that comes out of religion is so ridiculously tainted and the credit can't be given to religion. We're all afraid of death, no waste your life and ruin others and bring everyone down just because you can't deal with it.

      Not at all – most of the true Christians believe it is not their place to judge any one that commits a sin. hate the sin, not the sinner so to speak. Most Christians could care less what someone does or how they act, unless it becomes a fight to force them to believe something contradictory to the Christian principles that shape their moral foundation.

      Truly seems to me the proponents of hateful language and personal insults are directed at the Christians or others that support the traditional family – not the other way around.

      Dear Hypocrisy,

      Of course you are right. That is why atheistic state's such as Lenin and Stalin's Soviet Union, Mao's China and Pol Pot's Cambodia are shining examples of humane, just, and decent societies. Oh wait, umh...not so much.

      The fact that most religious people, myself included, do not live up to our ideals does not make those ideals invalid. Nor is there any meaningful evidence that religion "causes" evil. People have used religion to justify their violence but as the expressly atheistic states demonstrate, the human propensity for violence is not an expression of religious belief.

      Are you really that much of an idiot. Taking a clear stance is not spreading hate. They did not say they wouldn't welcome or serve all peoples, they just voiced their stance on the subject. Everyone whines about people not speaking openly and then when someone does it gets twisted around. I tell you what, you just keep on being a good person and in the end we will all let God sort it out. Everyone can try to remove God, but they will fail. And by the way, if you say you don't believe in God, then by default you are saying you believe in evil, so who his contradicting themselves now. You can't have it both ways, so choose, like Chik-Fil-A did. And by the way, yes I am a Chirstian and a sinner and this post of mine shows my human side. Thank God I have His grace to fall back on.

      Hypocracy – When was the last time a Christian stoned a woman for adultry, or strapped a bomb to a person and detonated it in a crowded area? I agree that not all Christians are civil in communicating their beliefs, but I resent your implication that only Christians are running around spreading hate and intolerance. There are a number of groups, both religious and social that have their own agendas and throw around hyperbole (look it up if you need to) and un-founded claims to promote their position.
      Based on the article, the entire paragraph from Michael Cole-Swartz is intollerant of Chick-Fil-A's right to hold and promote their own beliefs. No where in the article does Chick-Fil-A say they will deny food or service to any group, they are not discriminatory, they have a moral belief and base their personal and professional behaviors on these beliefs. If anything that is the exact opposite of hypocracy, they remain consistant regardless of public opinion.

      Openly not agreeing with certain practices or views is not spreading hatred. It is standing up for what you believe in. It is a difference of opionion not an admission of guilt as it pertains to bigotry, evil, hatred, or any other negative term that you can come up with.

We all at some level hate. This is a "sinnful" world and EVERYBODY at one point in their life has hated something or someone. Christ tells us to love the sinner but it also clearly says not to love the sin itself. Whether you want to believe in a True God or not, we can't live in a world that says there are no moral boundaries and people can do whatever they want...use your head and think where that will lead...to hate.

No an opinion. Where were you when they didn't open on Sunday for the Christian beliefs? is that hate, no a basis of the religion, same as this.

      No one in that article said one thing about hating or being intolerant of gays or or any other segment of the population. Mr. Cathy simply stated his own beliefs as a Christian, and chooses to run his company with that in mind. He never said anything about not serving gays or providing the best service and best food possible to any customer. I imagine you and most everyone else frequents businesses about which you know absolutely nothing of the owner's beliefs...they could be Muslim, bigots, gays, or just about any ol' thing. Because you don't know what they believe, you think nothing of going to their establishments. And yet, you want to criticize Mr. Cathy and Chick-fil-A as "haters" because he simply stated his personal beliefs? Somehow, that seems very inconsistent.

      Since someone believes that a certain action or lifestyle is sin they are a bigot and just doing evil? Interesting, I didn't know that people weren't allowed to have their own opinions and think for themselves, or even have freedom of speech in this country. So much talk of hate and evil doing, when all you are doing is bashing on someone for stating their opinion in a way that was not hateful or attacking anyone in any way. They said that they believe in the Biblical format for a family, but will still serve EVERY person that walks into their buildings with the same service and treat them with respect no matter their own personal opinions. To me it sounds like you just can't deal with people having a different view on life than you. You said why can't Christians hear others yelling against them, in a room full of people the ones yelling the loudest usually need the most help. Just sayin.

      You obviously have issues with Christianity & other religions; so much for Christians being the only ones spreading hate and intolerance.

      Take a few history courses – Religion is where morality BEGAN. If you read the Bible you find all kinds of tolerant commandments like "Judge Not lest Ye be Judged".

      But it's easier to label all religion as backwards. We're stoopid, you're smarter. Makes you feel superior, etc.

You can slap labels like 'hate' and 'intolerant' around as much as you want, but its still just you slapping labels on something. It in no way, shape or form makes it true. You're just mad because someone disagrees with your viewpoint. Perhaps you should look up the definition of bigotry, because you fit the definition to the letter! Anyway, I always thought that calling someone names when you don't get your way was something only 5 year old's do. I guess you proved that theory wrong also.

    Seems kind of hypocritical to me that someone, who says they are supportive of family and speaks of being married to their first spouse, should work to deny others of the same happiness.

      @ downinfront...I'm sure he would be happy for you to marry. He is not denying anyone anything. Love how you people want to make everything black or white.

    It's interesting that Chick-Fil-A is accused of hate, yet the comments are about pro-family and have no hateful tone in them. In contrast, the critiques of their policy are rife with hateful words and tone. It's ironic to me that Christians are so often accused of hate, yet it is the accusers that show the most hate in their criticism. The same "Christians sholuld be tolerant" people are the most intolerant of Christians whose beliefs differ from their own.

      I agree totally. If a Christian has the audacity to speak their mind they are labeled as prejudice haters. But who's doing all the ranting? Each time I turn on the TV there's a different protest. Rarely are they Christians doing the protesting!

      Perhaps when gays develop a KKK mentality toward straight people. If that ever happens they can thank Mr. Cathy for his contribution, as they watch the cross in their yard burn long into the night.

      Do your research before posting something like that... It made no sense whatsoever. Do some reading and try again later.
