    Chicago chef Art Smith is speaking out about anti-gay marriage comments by Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy.

    Cathy told a radio host last week that "God's judgment" is coming because of same-sex marriage and chastises "our generation" for having the "audacity to define what marriage is about."

    Smith, who owns Table Fifty-Two in the Gold Coast and was Oprah Winfrey's longtime personal chef, had this to say to Grub Street New York about the controversy:

      "As a gay southern man who found health and married Jesus, why would I eat at a place that serves poison and preaches it?"

    Smith is referencing his longtime partner Jesus Salgueiro. The pair were married in 2010.
