Now you can "eat more chicken" for a cause. Conservative talk show radio host and former presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee, along with the National Organization for Marriage are encouraging supporters of Chick fil-A to voice it with their cash. Wednesday, August 1st is "Support Chick fil-A Day."
The statements made by Chick fil-A COO, Dan Cathy, in support of biblical traditional marriage have caused a firestorm of liberal media attacks, and now the Jim Henson Company, which was in the midst of a puppet-making promotion with the chain has ended its partnership. Lisa Henson, daughter of the late Jim Henson and CEO of the company is a personal supporter of gay marriage and will donate the payment received from Chick fil-A to the Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). Also, on August 3rd, same-sex marriage supporters are also planning a "National Same Sex Kiss Day" in front of Chick Fil-A restaurants nationwide.
So, the opponents of Chick fil-A have made their position clear; the question is whether Christians will unequivocally do the same thing. Will Christian preachers, artists and congregants rally to support a restaurant that has invoked a Christ-like standard for business, marriage and family for more than forty years?
