So Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy (who is also the son of the company’s founder) has dug in his heels on this whole gay marriage thing, which he talked about in a recent interview.

UPDATE: Chick-Fil-A has responded with a statement over the comments, which drew strong negative reaction this week.

"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.
Chick-fil-A is a family-owned and family-led company serving the communities in which it operates. From the day Truett Cathy started the company, he began applying biblically-based principles to managing his business. For example, we believe that closing on Sundays, operating debt-free and devoting a percentage of our profits back to our communities are what make us a stronger company and Chick-fil-A family.
Our mission is simple: to serve great food, provide genuine hospitality and have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.”

Good way of handling the reaction?

    This has to be viral marketing for an expanding dessert menu, because Chick Fil A’s response sounds like cherry picking.
