A day after protesters crashed the grand opening of the Chick-fil-A store in Toronto, some people marching in the annual Jesus in the City parade gathered outside the shop to pray religious freedom.

The American food chain, which opened a new store at Yonge and Bloor streets, was slammed by protesters yesterday for its ties to anti-LGBTQ groups.

The CEO of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, said he believes in the "biblical definition of a family unit" and has donated millions to charities with a history of discrimination against LGBTQ groups. The billionaire's family also donated millions to defeat marriage equality initiatives.
