This week, Chick-fil-A's president Dan Cathy spoke out publicly against gay marriage. The ensuing public uproar on the subject has been swift.
Bloggers have lit up the Internet, Twitter has been filled with opinions and celebrities have sworn to boycott the family-owned restaurant.
In response, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos donated $2.5 million to help pass a same-sex referendum in Washington state. How the public will react is yet to be determined.
Even President Obama earlier this year, switched his stance on gay marriage saying publically that he condones unions between same-sex couples.
