CULLMAN — Chick-fil-A in Cullman is packed with supporters of the company and its president for backing traditional, biblical views of marriage and family.
Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press this month that the Atlanta-based company was “guilty as charged” for backing “the biblical definition of a family.”
Several gay rights organizations have objected to Cathy's remarks and have been rallying support against the restaurant chain. But in Cullman, the sentiment appears to be firmly in favor of the company's position on family values.
The Chick-fil-A on Alabama 69 is standing-room-only at this time, according to a reporter at the scene. Cars are lined up from two directions attempting to get into the drive-through and parking lot. Patrons can also be seen lined up outside the building attempting to get inside.
Several supporters inside and outside the building said they dine today and tonight in support of the restaurant.
"This is about Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve," one man in the line outside shouted.
