Some companies go out of their way to stay mum on hot-button issues for fear of driving off customers. You can’t say the same for Chick-fil-A. The company president wants the fast-food chain to be known for serving up Christian values along with juicy chicken sandwiches, proudly proclaiming the company’s anti-gay stance.

Now the company is reaping what it sows.

Social media circles were buzzing Wednesday about the company’s very public stance, with many users feeling obliged to pick a side. And did they ever. Many thanked the fast-food chain for voicing its support for traditional marriage, while others called for a boycott.
