A flaming debate has enveloped around the Chick-fil-A fast food chain after remarks made by Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy to the Baptist Press that, "We don't claim to be a Christian business ... But as an organization we can operate on biblical principles ... We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit."
Those statements have drawn outcries from pro-homosexual groups along with boycott messages on Chick-fil-A's facebook page. But right along with the detractors came messages of support who called for a "boycott of the boycott" by going to to eat at Chick-Fil-A.
"Thank you for standing against gay marriage. Wish more companies would follow your example," wrote one supporter.
An opponent wrote, "Every
company can follow any moral code they choose just as I can choose
never to eat at Chick-fil-A again just as I hope every other person will
