Associated Press Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- The president of the fast-food restaurant chain Chick-fil-A has once again injected himself into the gay marriage debate, this time criticizing Supreme Court rulings.

Dan Cathy posted a comment Wednesday on Twitter criticizing a pair of U.S. Supreme Court rulings. Those decisions will extend federal recognition to same-sex marriages in the states where they are legal, and will add California -- the most populous state -- to the 12 others in that category.

"Sad day for our nation," Cathy wrote. He added that the country's founders would be "ashamed" of the modern generation.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the post was later deleted. Chick-fil-A officials issued a statement acknowledging the post, saying Cathy was offering a personal comment.

Cathy previously sparked controversy by speaking against gay marriage, prompting protests and condemnations by politicians.
