Transcript for Chick-fil-A: Thousands Show Support
PRICES THEN SETTLED DOWN. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE AT CHICK FILA RESTAURANTS FROM COAST TO COAST ARE INVOLVED IN A CULTURE WAR OVER GAY MARRIAGE. Reporter: FOR T Reporter: FOR THE THOUSANDS OF CHICK-FIL-A SUPPORTERS WHO TODAY CROWDED THE COMPANY'S RESTAURANTS, A CHICKEN SANDWICH NEVER TASTED SO GOOD. TODAY, THEY CAME TO LINE UP IN SUPPORT OF TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE. VOTING WITH THEIR FEET IN FORT WORTH, IN HOUSTON, IN MIAMI AND AT FOOD COURTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY WHERE THE LINES WRAPPED AROUND THE MALLS. THIS IS MY SECOND ONE TODAY AND I'LL DO ANOTHER ONE TONIGHT ON THE WAY HOME FROM WORK. Reporter: CHICK-FIL-A HAS LONG HANDED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO GROUPS THAT FIGHT AGAINST PROTECTIONS FOR GAY AMERICANS, BUT IT WAS THESE WORDS FROM CEO DAN CATHY A FEW WEEKS AGO THAT SPARKED THE FIRE. I THINK WE'RE INVITING GOD'S JUDGEMENT ON OUR NATION WHEN WE SHAKE OUR FIST AT HIM AND SAY, WE KNOW BETTER THAN YOU AS TO WHAT CONSTITUTES A MARRIAGE. Reporter: IN ATLANTA, WHERE CHICK-FIL-A IS BASED, SONJA HOLMES TOLD ME SHE CAME OUT TODAY TO SUPPORT THE CEO. I JUST HAPPEN TO AGREE WITH HIS BELIEFS BECAUSE I DO BELIEVE MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN. Reporter: AT HOME, REVEREND BILL GRAHAM GOT HIMSELF A TASTE TODAY. SO DID FORMER GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE WHO ORGANIZED THE EVENT. AND THIS WEEK, THE PALIN'S ARE ALL ABOUT CHICK-FIL-A TOO. BUT MAYORS FROM AT LEAST THREE MAJOR CITIES VOWED TO BLOCK NEW STORES. THEIR VALUES ARE NOT CHICAGO VALUES. Reporter: WHAT MAY BE THE MOST TELLING ARE THE PEOPLE WE TALKED WITH HERE TODAY WHO TOLD US THEY SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE, BUT PLAN TO CONTINUE ENJOYING CHICKEN HERE ANYWAY. I DON'T SUPPORT THE POLITICS BUT I DO SUPPORT THE FOOD. SO, GO CHICK-FIL-A. STEVE OSUNSAMI, ABC NEWS, ATLANTA.
