(Newser) – A church in Dayton, Ohio gave out free $25 Chik-fil-A gift cards to straight married couples attending its "Day to Honor Biblical Marriage" event. An ad for the event was picked up by Reddit and, as these things do, spread quickly around the Internet, reports the Huffington Post. Despite Chik-fil-A's open opposition to gay marriage, the chain says it was not affiliated with the event, and the gift cards are reported to have been purchased by a local restaurant and donated to the church. So far, no gay couples in Dayton are reported to have reconsidered their sexual preference at the prospect of free chicken.

God's promise of Heaven and Eternal Life doesn't need improvement, I support Man and Woman marriages, But I also support that and man and a Woman be prepared for marriage and understand the importance of the responsibility that is contained in a marriage and family. Having a fun night in the sack with another irresponsible person, doesn't qualify as being prepared for marriage.

It appears that those pro gay marriage and haters of churches have a lot more hate and malice towards churches than the church has towards them. Just an observation but if you were to settle down and not make a big deal out of all this it would have never become one. Im more of the you do your thing I do mine and we don't have to share it. The more marches and protest you do the worse its going to be. Try being more passive and gain ground slowly.
