In response to President Dan Cathy’s statement against same-sex marriage and reaffirming the company’s stance on the traditional family unit, Mike Huckabee on his Facebook page has called for Wednesday, August 1 for be “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”
According to Huffington Post, Huckabee, on his Facebook page said, “The goal is simple: Let's affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, August 1.”
On Monday, LGBT Weekly reported that Philadelphia City Councilman James Kenney sent a letter to the company’s president telling him that Chick-fil-A is not welcome in the City of Brotherly Love.
Kenney also vowed in the letter to introduce a resolution at the next City Council meeting that will condemn the company.
Protesters of Chick-fil-A’s stance on same-sex marriage have organized National Same Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A restaurants on Friday, August 3.
