New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he refuses to eat at Chick-fil-A because of their "anti-LGBT" stance, according to several reports.  

"I'm certainly not going to patronize them and I wouldn't urge any other New Yorker to patronize them. But they do have a legal right," he said.  

"This group imparts a strong anti-LGBT message by forcing their employees and volunteers to adhere to a policy that prohibits same-sex love. ... It is outrageous that Chick-fil-A is quietly spreading its message of hate by funding these types of organizations," the mayor said.  

And while the fast-food chain's CEO still says he is "Guilty as charged" when it comes to supporting traditional marriage, he has learned from his "mistakes," of giving corporate money to "anti-gay" organizations like the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. 

"Every leader goes through different phases of maturity, growth and development and it helps by (recognizing) the mistakes that you make," Cathy said. "And you learn from those mistakes. If not, you're just a fool. I'm thankful that I lived through it and I learned a lot from it."
