Between same sex kiss-ins, boycotts, and the National Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day last week, chicken and politics have become intertwined.

In a religious publication, the owner of Chick-Fil-A stated that he thought of marriage as one man and one woman, which sparked the controversy.

Mike Lovely, board member for P-FLAG, a support and advocacy group for parents, family and friends of lesbians and gays, says that some of the reaction has been over the top "I did not think it was the right thing to do for mayors and what have you, to not make them welcome in the cities, I felt the best way to get to them is in their pocketbooks, just do not spend money there"

There have been bans on Chick-Fil-A proposed by the mayors of a number of cities including Boston and Chicago.

Lovely added that people on both sides of the isle seem look for something to fight about when they should be looking for ways we can get along.
