Eatery Creates "Hate Free" Sandwich
Portland restaurant offers sandwich in response to Chick-Fil-A controversy.
Christian conservatives flocked to national fast food chain Chick fil-A for an appreciation day, supporting its owner's views against same-sex marriage.
While Portland, Oregon doesn't have a Chick Fill-A location, one local burger joint made its own statement.
The national chain Hamburger Mary's created the "Hate Free Chicken Sandwich" to counter.
It will be the chain's signature sandwich for the month.
"It's modeled after a certain restaurants recipe. This is not copied as a compliment," executive chef Sagamore Blakley said.
"We just want to add our voice in the increasing number of voices against Chick fil-A controversy. Some dudes marry dudes, get over it," said general manager Justin Hite.
All the proceeds from this sandwich at the Portland location will go to Portland's Pride Foundation.
