Here is an excerpt from the Herald and News (Klamath Falls, Oregon), August 9, 2012:
"A month ago, on July 2, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy told a North Carolina Baptist website that his privately-owned company supported the 'biblical definition of the family unit.' When the story was picked up in mid-July by the Baptist Press, it quickly became the religious publisher's most-read article of 2012.
"Cathy's comments soon turned into a takeout feed bag for politicians and cable news shows. A social media war erupted. And suddenly chicken sandwiches were at the center of the culture wars.
"Calls for boycotts ensued. The mayors of Chicago, Boston and Washington announced their opposition to the fast-food chain. Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum and conservative talk radio hosts came to its defense. And Mike Huckabee even went so far as to organize a Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, which last Wednesday resulted in record sales, lines out the door and live TV shots from local news helicopters."
