Stand with Us for Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day - August 1st!
Senator Santorum posted the following statement today on his Facebook page and Patriot Voices will be joining in this effort. We encourage you to do these three things: participate on August 1st, RSVP on Gov. Huckabee's event page, and then share the event on your own wall with your friends and family! Thanks!
Help us fight to for traditional families and eat chicken at the same time.
Why, you ask? Well, here’s some background…
Chick-fil-A, a wonderful example of the American entrepreneurial spirit, has been the target of vicious attacks from the liberal left. Started more than four decades ago by Christian Truett Cathy, this restaurant has grown into a $4 billion a year business and a great success story. They are now facing unprecedented attacks because the leadership of this company acts out their faith, a right afforded to all of us in the Constitution.
Since it first opened, Chick-fil-A has closed on Sundays so its employees can attend church services if they wish. And Truett Cathy has remained committed to running a business that reflects his belief in the Bible. That continues now as Americans are discussing the future of marriage and the traditional family.
Dan Truett, Truett’s son who now serves as CEO of Chick-fil-A, has been vilified by the left because of his support of traditional marriage. Militant gay groups are now boycotting the restaurant chain because of this and they are issuing hate-filled attacks on his family.
It is sad that liberal groups call for tolerance yet they are vicious in their intolerance when someone disagrees with them.
I think Governor Mike Huckabee said it best when he wrote, “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.”
And that’s why I am joining Mike in his effort to fight for traditional values. Please join me and Governor Huckabee on August 1 by eating at Chick-fil-A. No signs and no protests are needed to make your voice heard. Just simply have a meal at Chick-fil-A on August 1 for "Chick Fil-A Appreciation Day” and our support for traditional values will be heard loud and clear.
I hope to see you there.
And if you can’t make it to a Chick-fil-A on August 1, tweet or post your support on Facebook.
Thanks for standing with us,
