Crowds flock to, protest Chick-fil-A appreciation day

| No Comments

Conservative Christians packed Chick-fil-A restaurants Wednesday in support of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day", said The New York Times.

Huckabee organized the day to support company president Dan T. Cathy's stance against same-sex marriage, said The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Nationwide, and particularly in Chick-fil-A's home state of Georgia, supporters of Cathy's stance, like Georgia resident Julie Greene, flocked into the restaurant Wednesday, said The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"We love the Cathy family stand on biblical values," said Greene, who also noted that she had no hatred toward anyone, to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

People also came out not just to support the company, but to defend the First Amendment right to freedom of speech, said The New York Times.

"I feel like Chick-fil-A has been unfairly singled out," Atlanta resident Neil Greenlee told The New York Times. ""This is America, and we're free to speak our minds."

Opponents of Chick-fil-A's anti-gay position plan to stage "Kiss-in's" at restaurant locations across the country Friday, said The Atlanta Journal-Consitution.
