ATLANTA, July 26, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) â€“ As Chick-fil-A experiences the full frontal assault of the homosexual movementâ€™s efforts to squash those who publicly uphold and defend traditional views of marriage and sexuality, a number of high profile leaders have risen to the fast-food chainâ€™s defense, offering a helping hand of support and encouragement. â€œI have been incensed at the vitriolic assaults on the Chick-fil-A company because the CEO, Dan Cathy, made comments recently in which he affirmed his view that the Biblical view of marriage should be upheld,â€ wrote Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate, on a Facebook page created to support Chick-fil-A.
â€œToo often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity,â€ he wrote, â€œbut if Christians affirm traditional values, weâ€™re considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant.â€
Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day invites pro-traditional-marriage fans to support the fast food chain by â€œsimply showing up and eating at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, August 1.â€

â€œNo one is being asked to make signs, speeches, or openly demonstrate. The goal is simple: Letâ€™s affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse.â€
The sign-up has already surpassed 209,000 people, with 23,000 â€œmaybesâ€ and another 1.6 million invited.
On Tuesday, the Facebook sign-up page mysteriously disappeared, leaving Huckabee and others wondering what had happened. The page just as mysteriously reappeared 12 hours later.
