‘Chick fil-A Appreciation Day’ Announced by Mike Huckabee Amidst Gay Marriage Debate

posted on July 25, 2012

After Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy voiced opposition to gay marriage, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee organized a “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” slated for August 1st, reports The Washington Post’s Elizabeth Tenety. Huckabee, a Baptist preacher, supports the restaurant, which he describes as a “company run by Christian principles.” Huckabee writes, “Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we’re considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant.”
