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.

I would love to be the attorney representing Chik- Fil- A. While you have freedom of the press you also have the responsibility to get the facts right. No where in the interview did he say he was anti-gay. He said he was against homosexual marriage.

once again if people are not allowed to have there own opinions, it is really rediculous how once someone voice there opinion against something the believe in people are ready to pounce on them....is that now what the gay community is asking for they want to be able to be who they are and do what they please and not be punished or rediculed for it....put they will not give the same respect to some one who does not believe the same way they do.... i am sure i made a few errors but my point is this is the United States and FREEDOM is what we live under.......

LMAO. So... The typical TMZ reader is an uneducated, ignorant, trailer-park living bigot? The LGBT community isn't anti-Christian, they're against anyone who wants to support groups that spread known lies and tries to keep them as 2nd class citizens.

Chic-fi-la is a christian based company that does not even open on Sundays in most areas. I guarantee this made up controversy will do nothing but boost their sales. I am so sick of everything being about the gays these days.....does that car wash support gay marriage?....does that bank support gay marriage?.....how about that furniture store? Do they support gay marriage? Maybe all business should display their gay marriage stance on their front door. It's ridiculous! Typical liberals, they claim to be tolerant of people, but only if they believe the same way they do.

This was not hate speech; just a man answering a question and saying he is pro traditional marriage. Frankly, I find it REFRESHING that Chic Fil A hasn't caved in to the Gay Mafia and sent out the obligatory apology...good for you.

So because Chick Fil A has the audacity to be pro traditional marriage, a bunch of gays will now flock to their restaurants and will demonstrate in front of people with their kids trying to eat their lunches? Really? Seems to me that gay folks are the most hateful and intolerant group out there.

Harvey being the self proclaimed legal eagle that he is, should know better. This site is dedicated to exposing those who, "speak their minds". In Harvey's world, it's his way or the highway. Great site, exclusive of this kind of bullying garbage.....

If the CEO of Chik-Fil-A isn't anti gay, then why does he financially support those who are? Why does he support groups who complain because a gay woman is a spokesperson for a department store? Or if a cookie company makes a special PICTURE of a cookie muliticolored for Gay Pride, now those groups have called for a boycott against Oreos. You people for the most part are just as prejudice as they are. I as a gay person would not spend one dime in any place that doesn't support EQUAL RIGHTS.

Marriage licenses are issued by the state, not the church. No religion is necessary for a marriage to be legal, valid or recognized.
