When Dan Cathy, CEO of the fabulously successful fast-food chain Chick-fil-A, told Online Baptist Press that he supports the “traditional” family, he ignited a firestorm of controversy. For this, he was vilified by left-leaning ideologues, including the mayors of several of America’s largest cities.

In response to what many perceived to be a blatant violation of Cathy’s First Amendment rights on the part of these elected officials, former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate, Fox News television host Mike Huckabee, came to Cathy’s defense by declaring Wednesday, August 1, “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”

On Wednesday, legions of Americans from all across the country came out in support of Chick-fil-A.

Today homosexual activists are planning a “National Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A.” The “kiss in” will consist of same-sex couples either photographing or videoing themselves as they kiss inside a Chick-fil-A restaurant. 

Priests for Life, a Catholic organization that has been on the front lines of the pro-life cause for the past 20 years, announced August 1 that it will not comply with the Health and Human Services (HHS) contraception mandate which went into effect on that date. The mandate, which is already the target of over a score of lawsuits filed by nearly 60 faith-based organizations, requires that all non-church employers provide their employees with health insurance that includes free access to sterilization and contraception — including abortion-inducing drugs.

The Louisiana state teachers' union sent letters to private schools participating in the state's school choice program threatening them with lawsuits if they do not withdraw from the program while the union challenges it in court.

The new Catholic archbishop of San Francisco is an orthodox shepherd on sexual matters and was the main prince of the Church who pushed the passage of California’s Proposition 8, the state referendum that defined marriage as a bond between one man and one woman.

Had homosexual activists wanted to do a big favor to Chick-fil-A, they couldn’t have picked a better strategy than the mass boycott they called to protest comments the restaurant chain’s president, Dan Cathy, made a couple of weeks ago in favor of Christian values and traditional marriage. To counter the attack, former Arkansas Gov. and radio talk show host Mike Huckabee called on Americans to show their appreciation for Cathy and the company by making August 1 a special Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.
