Chick-Fil-A Gift Cards Donated To 'Biblical Marriage' Church Event (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Chick-fil-A continues to be the fast-food of choice for gay marriage haters.

The latest indication: An advertisement in a Dayton, Ohio newspaper offering $25 Chick-fil-A gift cards to every married, heterosexual couple that attended a May 19 event honoring "biblical marriage."

The event, hosted by the Cornerstone Baptist Temple (you can see the ad below), was not sponsored by Chick-fil-A or any of its independent restaurants, according to a statement from the fast food chain emailed to The Huffington Post. Gift cards were instead purchased by a local restaurant and donated to the church.

The ad, which was shared on Reddit, sparked a lengthy discussion from the Internet community.

"I would match up as many gay and lesbian couples as possible, pretend they are all married, get the vouchers and go have some free chicken. It would be fabulous," Reddit user Jonny1992 wrote on the website.

Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy has a long history of coming out against gay marriage in support of what he describes as "the biblical definition of the family unit." The CEO has also said that he prays for the generation that "has the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is about."
