Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum would have been a great Republican Presidential ticket.

I AM JOKING… First of all, I would never vote for someone who believes literally in Genesis which includes Dinosaurs and Man walking around together on Earth at the same time…. Call me crazy if you want 🙂

….anyway

I am sure you have heard the recent uproar about “same sex marriage and Chick-fil-A restaurants. Fast Food Company President Dan Cathy’s is being celebrated and condemned for recent remarks that his company supports “the biblical definition of the family unit”.

Since when did Fast Food and Religious zealousness marry?

Huckabee jumped into the discussion with this public comment stating that he is tired of seeing this “vicious hate speech and intolerant bigotry” aimed at Chick-fil-A.

His Facebook pages stated this:

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. 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”.

Huckabee’s message is valid up to a point. I mean I get where he is coming from.  Still, I feel Dan Cathy should stick to slinging chicken sliders and probably should not be weighing in on social-political ideals. Anyway, why would you black ball customers? That is not good business. Are gays not good enough for your heart clogging fat and cholesterol? Christian values are great until the pendulums swings into vertical platform virtues and ridiculous dogma that threatens people’s rights.

I think there should be a separation of church and chicken nuggets…  well, I take that back… unless you can see the face of Jesus Christ on the side of a Chick-fil-A sandwich. That would be a whole different deal… You know what is weird? I have never eaten at a Chick-fil-A restaurant and despite being hetrosexual I am pretty sure I am not going to dine there on August 1st.
