AFP Mentions NOM's Promotion of Eat Mor Chikin Wednesday

 

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate turned talk show host Mike Huckabee appealed to Americans who favor traditional marriage to dine en masse at their local Chick-fil-A on August 1.

Billy Graham, the 93-year-old dean of Evangelist preachers, meanwhile praised the Cathy family's "public support for God's definition of marriage."

"As the son of a dairy farmer who milked many a cow, I plan to 'Eat Mor Chikin' and show my support by visiting Chick-fil-A next Wednesday," he said in a statement Thursday.

The National Organization for Marriage also endorsed August 1 as a chance to rally support for retaining the Defense of Marriage Act, which blocks the recognition of same-sex marriages at the federal level.
