Before you write a front-page article about Chick-fil-A maybe you should get your facts straight (“Crowd turns out for fast food stand against gay marriage,” Journal, Aug. 3).
The Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day wasn’t just about marriage, it was about free speech. You know, the First Amendment! (Company CEO) Dan Cathy never said anything about gay marriage, he was asked about traditional marriage which he said he and his family support.
Mr. Cathy never said he and his company were, in your words, “against gay marriage.” Mr. Cathy was being interviewed by a religious publication. He’s a Christian and people are surprised at his honest answer!
By the way, our president held the same position on marriage until recently! Use the front page to inform.
