Poll: Will you support Chic-fil-A Appreciation Day on Wednesday, Aug. 1?
Spurred by a controversy surrounding Chic-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's public statements against gay marriage, and other companies who've since come out publicly on either side of the debate, commentator and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee started a national movement called Chic-fil-A Appreciation Day.
The statement from the N.C. Values Coalition about the day said: "Grab your family, your coworkers, friends from church, and head to your local Chick-fil-A branch to share a meal. Before you eat, pray for Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy, the Chick-fil-A family, and all those in the public sphere to continue their boldness in affirming marriage the way God designed it... as between one man and one woman.
