Chick-fil-a's view on marriage sparking controversy

ATLANTA, GA (CNN) -

Fast-food chain Chick-fil-A's traditional stance on marriage is sparking controversy.  

Company president Dan Cathy discussed same-sex marriage Monday with Baptist Press.  

He said the restaurant solely supports -quote- "the Biblical definition of the family unit."  

Cathy's comments have spread across the Internet. On Wednesday, the company was one of Google's top trending searches, and Chick-fil-A's Facebook and Twitter pages were filled with angry comments.  

But the response wasn't all negative.  

Some argued the company had a right to stick by its principles. The company has openly supported Christian values for years.  In fact, the 1,600 stores in the chain stay closed on Sundays.
