Rick Santorum

Swallows a Mouthful

of Anti-Gay Chick-fil-A

0725_rick_santorum_chick_fil_a_tmzThey say you are what you eat, so it's no surprise failed Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum loves him some anti-gay chicken.

The conservative 54-year-old just showed his support for controversial fast food chain Chick-fil-A -- whose president has been very vocal about the company's support for all things anti-gay lately -- by tweeting, "With two of my boys, Enjoying chick-in-strips and awesome peach shake at Chick-fil-A."

Then, in a reference to fellow GOP evangelical Christian Mike Huckabee's campaign for a Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day on August 1st, Santorum added, "See you here next Wednesday."

In response, pro-equality groups are coordinating a Same Sex Kiss Day at all Chick-fil-A restaurants on Friday, August 3rd. Now that's a mouthwatering meal.

Since they've donated millions of dollars to anti gay causes I'd say that makes them a homophobic organization.

but I see the fake posters who are really Chick Fil A PR are out in droves. They got caught on that Facebook account create a fake acct to defend their crummy pickle chicken sandwich.

Chick Fil A has a right to say and feel how they choose. I love their chicken. And I support anyone who stands up for what they believe. Whether or not I agree is not relevant.

Lol why can't people have an opinion in America? So what if he does not approve of gays, that's his opinion. This is funny because gays were complaining about the responses to oreo's support for gays and now look at what they are doing. Hypocrites.

Folks let me set the record STRAIGHT. What TMZ and the rest of the militant gays aren't telling you is the so-called "anti-gay" statement attributed to the owner of Chick-Fil-A is that he was asked if it was true that he was opposed to gay marriage, which he responded by saying "guilty as charged". They ran with the "guilty as charged" and started a smear campaign. I did a search on the web for outlets who carried the story and only one placed the comment in context. So, I guess if you're against gay marriage that makes you anti-gay or HOMOPHOPIC, according to the gay brigade. That's called "tolerance" You're entitled to their opinion.

Obama ran in the last election saying marriage was between a man and a woman. How many of you voted for him? That means you are bigoted.

it's cool for people to be pro-gay, then it's cool for people to be anti-gay as long as there is no violence. Gays are so hyporitical.

Here we go with all the "loving" comments from the "tolerant" anti-gay lobby. Freedom of speech and religion is only for them and anyone that dares speak out against the sin of homophobia is cut down and bullied into silence. One only has to look at the hateful, anti-gay comments here to see that homophobia is a fruit of Satan. As the Bible says, "Bad fruit cannot come from a good tree." The majority of "tolerant" comments here from those promoting the immoral anti-gay agenda are nasty, i.e., bad fruit. Perhaps the "tolerant" anti-gay crowd should repent instead of angrily reviling gay taxpayers online?

Twist and turn, the liberal way. Turn truth into lies. Chick fil a is not anti-gay. They hire gays, feed gays, give gay employees scholarships to college. They are against gay marriage because Christianity does not support gay marriage, and they are a private company founded by a truly kind, Christian man. He doesn't just talk the talk, he walks the talk, and lives the talk. You gays and liberals can't stand to be opposed. Instead of allowing someone their religious beliefs, you try to ruin them just so your perversions can be dominant. You might succeed temporarily, in this temporal world, but believe the Bible when it says, "God is not mocked.":

I don't like seeing ANYONE kiss while I'm eating, that's not cool...and it's actually illegal in many places to "embrace publicly"...I'm ok for people to be with whomever they want, but that's not ok to be all over each other where people are eating. Ewww
