Chick-fil-A is expanding with gusto into the New York City market, and that leaves gays and gay activists in the area facing quite a quandary that pits their principles — their opposition to CEO Dan Cathy's publicly expressed biblically based views of homosexuality — against their tastebuds.
The president and CEO of Chick-fil-A said he is no longer in the business of weighing in publicly on political issues, though his personal views on same-sex marriage haven't changed.
Chick-fil-A issued a statement saying that a recent tweet from company president Dan Cathy decrying the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage and DOMA represented his views, and his views alone.
The great chicken-sandwich controversy has come and gone, leaving a moral lesson as consequential and lasting as the clucking in a henhouse. The clucking was media-made — loud, fierce and angry.
Religious freedom continues to be under attack by those who preach tolerance but don't practice it themselves. First it was the federal government redefining the role of religious organizations and forcing them to provide health care services to their employees that go against their religious beliefs or be fined.
When Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy spoke about marriage last month, he did something every American is free to do. He voiced his opinion and aired his convictions. In response, some activist groups that disagree with Mr. Cathy have demanded that Chick-fil-A restaurants be removed immediately from several university campuses.
Churchgoers and supporters of religious freedom weren't too chicken to eat at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday.
Homosexual "marriage" has become a defining issue for Democrats. The party is pushing hard for this policy to bring out their base and get behind an otherwise weak re-election bid from President Obama.

Dan Cathy could have saved his company, Chick-fil-A, a lot of trouble. All he had to do was keep his views about family to himself.
Each day brings new evidence of the left's hatred for Christians and other traditionalists, but the smear campaign against Christian-owned Chick-fil-A sets a new low.
Miss Piggy, the lovable Muppet who is always trying to lose weight, will have an easier time of it now that her puppeteers have banned her from Chick-fil-A. The Jim Henson Co., creator of the Muppets, pulled its toys from the popular fast-food chain in protest of the company owner's statement of support for traditional marriage.
It's the Muppets and the mayor of Boston against an ex-governor of Arkansas, as comments by a top executive of the Chick-fil-A fast-food chain in defense of Christian values and traditional marriage are cooking up a healthy side order of controversy.
"Consumers want to do business with brands that they can interface with, that they can relate with," he told the newspaper. "And it's probably very wise from our standpoint to make sure that we present our brand in a compelling way that the consumer can relate to."
"Every leader goes through different phases of maturity, growth and development and it helps by (recognizing) the mistakes that you make," Mr. Cathy said. "And you learn from those mistakes. If not, you're just a fool. I'm thankful that I lived through it and I learned a lot from it."
