Crowds show support for Chick-fil-A in Columbus, nationwide

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Chick-fil-A supporters around the country were out in full force today after former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee's declaration for National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

Crowds lined up at the Chick-fil-A restaurants across the valley to show their support following anti-gay criticisms aimed at the fast food chain.

You're looking at the Chick-fil-A on Macon Road in Columbus.

The firestorm of criticism came as Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press last month that his company supports the bible's definition of family.
