Throngs of supporters flocked to Chick-fil-A locations in La Habra and Walnut to bolster the company’s president, who has come under fire for comments supporting traditional marriage.
The Grand Avenue restaurant had about 200 people standing in a line that went the length of the interior of the restaurant and then outside where it made a big U. There were about 40 cars in the drive-through line.
Pastor Taehyung Ko, of Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church in Rowland Heights said the church leadership decided to support Chick-fil-A, and members of the church were encouraged last Sunday to attend the rally.
