DENVER, CO - They're the chicken sandwiches that can make a man break into song (as comedian Tim Hawkins does), but Denver's city council is singing a different tune because of Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's stance on gay marriage.

Back in 2013 after the Supreme Court ruled same-sex couples were entitled to federal benefits, Cathy tweeted that it was a "Sad day for our nation."

Flash forward two years and those words are haunting Chick-Fil-A as it vies for a spot in Denver's airport. The city council says it's taking two weeks to make sure "the rights of gay, lesbian and transgender employees will be respected." A Chick-Fil-A spokeswoman responded, saying the chain is "focused on serving great food and providing remarkable service to every single customer."

We'll find out next week whether any of those customers will be at the Denver airport or if the chain will just have to stick with it's 1,800 other locations. Either way, we think Chick-Fil-A will be just fine.
