Dan Cathy, owner of the 1600-location fast food chain, took public issue with same-sex marriage on a radio program:
“we’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage. And I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about.”
Boston mayor Tom Menino urged Chick-fil-A to back out of its plans to open locations in Boston. Mayors in San Francisco, Chicago, Washington DC have also expressed that the chain is not welcome in their cities.
