We already crowned Mike Huckabee douche of the week for defending the Boy Scout ban against gays, but now he’s going for a twofer by professing his love for marriage-equality-hating Chick-fil-A. On Sunday, the former politico and Baptist preacher announced on his Facebook page that he was organizing a “Chick Fil-A Appreciation Day,”
“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.”
What really turns our stomach is that more than 86,000 folks have agreed to tuck into some puritanical poultry, at least virtually.
Mike has also stepped up to explain the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado:
“We don’t have a crime problem, or a gun problem, or even a violence problem. What we have is a sin problem. And since we’ve ordered God out of our schools and communities, the military and public conversations, you know, we really shouldn’t act so surprised when all hell breaks loose.”
Huckabee’s really been cranking up the right-wing vitriol. Something tells us he’s bucking for a raise from his masters at Fox News.
