Given the support the fast food restaurant's O'Fallon location received when the crisis first erupted, what do you think of the company's decision?
Major news outlets reported Wednesday that Chick-Fil-A is backing down from its controversial support of groups that oppose same-sex marriage. The O'Fallon location of the fast-food eatery was swarmed with supporters during the height of the controversy in early August when the company's CEO Dan Cathy described his definition of marriage as "bibile-based" and traditional. The noise from the dust-up has died down, but Chick-Fil-A was apparently still feeling enough pressure to reverse course. From the AP: Chick-fil-A issued a statement to that effect Wednesday when asked to comment on a claim earlier in the day that the company had stopped funding organizations that oppose same-sex marriage.

Even if you disagree, do you agree the company has a right to take a stand? Will you still "eat mor chikin"?
The nationwide media storm over the anti-gay-marriage stance by the president of Chick-fil-A came home to roost in the St. Louis area last week as local stores saw record traffic and huge crowds. Most of the visitors said they supported the stance taken by Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy in the Biblical Recorder on gay marriage. Later, in an interview on the topic, Cathy said: "As it relates to society in general, I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than You as to what constitutes a marriage.'" On Wednesday, a day conservative commentators dedicated toward showing support for Chick-fil-A, crowds gathered at the restaurant in the Chesterfield Valley and in Arnold. The …
