ATLANTA (AP) -- The president of Chick-fil-A is taking a public stand for traditional marriage.

Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy told Baptist Press that the fast-food chain supports the Bible's definition of marriage as the union of a man and a woman. He said Chick-fil-A is a family-owned business and added, "We are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that."

Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign that promotes same-sex-marriage, criticized Cathy's remarks. He said they show that Chick-fil-A is an "openly discriminatory company" with a "stuck-in-the-past mentality."

Chick-fil-A released its own statement, saying it applies biblical principles to its business, treats everyone with respect and will "leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena."
