|Sales Surge at Chick-fil-A|

The Chick-fil-A fast food chain has recently faced an onslaught of politically correct criticism from Chicago’s gay mayor, Rahm Emanuel. The homosexual community opposes Chick-fil-A, since its CEO opposes same-sex marriage.
According to the Houston Chronicle, “patrons - jammed into the popular Houston chicken restaurant in Sawyer Heights – said people were asking each other about whether they shared the chain president’s views on same-sex marriage or were just hungry.”
Apparently on Wednesday, Chick-fil-A’s chicken sandwich could have been the most controversial meal to eat. Former Ark. Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Baptist minister, declared it national ‘Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,’ after the chicken chain faced mockery from liberals for the owner’s remarks on gay marriage last month.
As reported by the Houston Chronicle, “last month, Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press that the Atlanta-based company supported ‘the biblical definition of family.’ The stance ignited a gay marriage debate, with LGBT supporters and others lashing out against Chick-fil-A with efforts to boycott or block efforts for the chain to open new stores.”
Chick-fil-A customer, Angie Joyce, a Christian, said, “I had never thought about this place being political. It’s just a restaurant … This issue is about family values and I want my voice heard like the protestors do.”
