Mike Huckabee Calls for "Chick-Fil-A" Appreciation Day
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Baptist minister, declared next Wednesday, August 1st, "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" to support a business "whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values."
When he ran for president in 2008, Mike Huckabee spoke about the good eating habits that led to his 105-pound weight loss, and he often touted his book "Quit Digging Your Grave With a Knife and Fork."
Now Huckabee has found some of those pounds he lost, and he has a new message: He wants Americans to eat more fast food.

"The goal is simple," he announced this week, calling on Americans to help those who honor "the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, Aug. 1."
"Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day" already has over 314,000 RSVPs as of Friday.
Also, if you're going to attend the appreciation day, you might as well join in on heterosexual awareness month.
Huckabee is thus forcing Americans to take a stand: If they eat at Chick-fil-A, they are affirming Christian principles and opposing gay marriage. But what about millions of people who don't wish to make such a statement and merely like chicken nuggets (preferably with ranch or honey-mustard sauce) and waffle fries?
For those who oppose Chick-Fil-A day, go and stand outside the doors of Chick-Fil-A and kiss someone of the same sex.
