Can't decide how I feel about this one. I have no issue with LBGT marriage equality, and I love Chick-fil-a. I have been eating their since I was a child. While I respect Mr. Cathy's right to his opinion, and am in no way surprised by it given his strong religious beliefs, I do not respect capitalizing on the controversy. I also take issue with customers berating the employees on the subject as if they too support everything Mr. Cathy said. Sadly, we want to divide so much more than we want to come together...
