Cathy's perceived anti-gay marriage statements renewed the nation's debate on this hot-button topic.

Daniel B Chapin, commented on the Church support of the restaurant chains' statement asserting, "The Church supports and promotes traditional marriage between a man and a woman and the overall relationship of love and morality as defined by the Scriptures. We, however, do NOT pass judgement nor support agendas in support of or in defiance against an individuals sexual preference or on the same sex marriage issue. We assert that this is NOT the role of the church. Our primary agenda is to bring all people into the love of Christ and into our fellowship."
Addressing the Churchs' public backing of the restaurant chains' recent statement, Chapin stated, "While we tend to agree with "Chick-fil-A," as a whole supporting traditional faith based family values in this country, what we are supporting specifically is the companys' free speech right to take a stance on an issue and operate its' business as it desires."
