LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. -- Chick-fil-A may have found themselves in a deep fryer of controversy of late, but the company is not alone when it comes to incorporating their religious beliefs into their products.

The president of Chick-fil-A started a firestorm of controversy after telling an interviewer that he and his company supports the "Biblical" idea of marriage between a man and a woman.

The comment, along with the company's long-time financial support of several anti-gay marriage organizations, has led to protests and counter-protests across the nation over the past week.

But Chick-fil-A is hardly alone when it comes to matters of mixing faith with business. The bible passage John 3:16 appears on the bags of clothes retailer Forever 21 and California-based In-n-Out Burger, while other companies like Hobby Lobby talk about faith in its mission statement on their website and on corporate literature.

Hobby Lobby stores, like Chick-fil-A, are also closed on Sundays.

In addition, the chairman of Interstate Batteries invites prayer on his website, and Tyson Foods provides chaplains for employees during times of need.
