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.

why do gays continue to shove crap down our throat. Chick-fil-a was asked a question and gave their opinion. Its not like they are not allowing gays to work there or not enter the place. Everyone is entitled to their opinion just like gays.
Do we need to see gays kissing?? frickin ridiculous!!!

They ask for understanding and equal protection under the color of law, but should someone voice their opinion against the LGBT community, they go and do just what they preach against...intolerance.

Nothing but a hypocritical bunch, really.

What a stupidly worded article! Chick-fil-A is NOT anti-gay just because they are Pro Traditional Marriage. I'm sure that they would still serve a gay customer just like any other customer .... but why do we define a person as gay or not? Its not a culture or a race... it's a sexual orientation!

TMZ, please discontinue your slanderous labeling of Chick-Fil-A as "anti-gay" when no such phrase has ever been uttered by the restaurant. The founder of Chick-Fil-A simply said in an interview he supports traditional marriage. Your irresponsible reporting continues to expose your publication as erroneous, irresponsible, and agenda-based.

People would say I'm a liberal person but I have to agree with those who say that it isn't right to discriminate against ANYBODY for what they believe in. If people would pay as much attention to the people who make their State and Federal laws they have to live under, as they do about what private citizens believe in, then they could make a difference.

You know what? I really don't give a damn if gays marry or not. What I care about is the loss of our freedoms. Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech went out the window over the past few years. Watch out because the traps you set for others who don't agree with you might ensnare you in the end.

I like Chick-Fil-A sticking to their core beliefs. He didn't say they wouldn't serve gays or hire gays etc... They actually try to hire really good employees that attend church regularly. They Vet all of their potential franchisees by interviewing their pastors and friends. They don't try to cover this up or anything. They are an openly Christian based company. If the bible says that marriage is between a man and a woman and Chick-Fil-A chooses to follow the bible and it's teachings, then who are we to complain?

Chick-Fil-A is not Anti-Gay! this article is completely false! The question to the CEO was about gay marriage and he gave his opinion that marriage should be between a mad and a woman. Nothing in that says they are Anti-Gay. Get your facts straight.

i'm so sick of Harvey and his B.S. The guy is entitled to feel the way HE feels about gay marriage. For the record, he is not anti-gay, he said he doesn't agree with same sex marriage. How typically liberal of you asses.
Get off your high horse you anti-christian values POS Harvey.
F*&king SICK of you trying to FORCE your values down every ones throat. Guess I need to run down to Chick-fil-A and show my support for someone voicing THEIR opinion.
