During his weekly radio show on Friday, Mayor Bloomberg again addressed the Chick-fil-A controversy, saying the fast food chain has rights to its views on same-sex marriage, like the Catholic church.

The mayor also stressed that prior to the controversy, he had never heard of Chick-fil-A.

During last week's radio show on WORS, Bloomberg described demands for a New York City ban on Chick-fil-A ban as "inappropriate."

The mayor said that despite his own personal views supporting same-sex marriage, it's not the government's place to "look at somebody's political views and decide whether or not they can live in the city, or operate a business in the city, or work for somebody in the city."

Chick-fil-A has been under fire since last month, after Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy said he was "guilty as charged" of supporting "the biblical definition of the family unit" and that gay marriage invites "God's judgment on our nation."

Cathy's statements have since sparked a national uproar with mayors from Chicago, San Francisco, and Boston calling for a ban on the fast food restaurant.

Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, rallied people across the country to attend "Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day" on August 1 in order to "affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse."

A representative for the company wouldn't release specific numbers, but touted its success, calling it a "record-setting day."
