MARRIAGE: Moral guidance at a chicken restaurant?

Re: “Chick-fil-A says it set a record in sales” (TNT, 8-3).

I have been surprised by the public support of Chic-fil-A after it came out in support of the biblical definition of marriage.

I’m not surprised by the fact that many people don’t support gay marriage. I am surprised at the number of people seeking spiritual guidance from chicken restaurants. I guess it is no sillier than worshipping a magical man in the sky or a flying spaghetti monster.

I also find it hard to tell where one headline ends and the next headline begins in the media. One example I found on a news website: “Chick-fil-A fans helped set record/Couple stoned to death for adultery.”
