Today is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, and who better to make the case for traditional values at the Republican National Convention than Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy, a man who lives them in his business and personal life and who has paid a heavy price for publicly saying so?
Mr. Cathy learned the hard way what President Obama meant when he said that this election is a choice between two different visions for the country -- and by saying publicly he supports the biblical definition of the family, Cathy put himself at odds with President Obama and his Democratic Party allies on an important part of their vision -- legalizing same-sex marriage.
President Obama has chosen to make this election a fight between those who want to overturn traditional Judeo-Christian culture, by sanctioning same-sex marriage and other policies that erode the traditional family, and those who believe that Judeo-Christian culture and the traditional family are society’s most important building blocks and the foundations of American exceptionalism.

Republicans should oblige President Obama’s desire to make same-sex marriage a central issue in the November election, and campaign unequivocally as the party of the traditional values Dan Cathy stood for when he said, “Guilty as charged” when asked about his company’s support for the traditional family.
The state-sponsored terrorism by Democratic elected officials against Mr. Cathy and his business began almost as soon as his “Guilty as charged” remark found its way to the internet.
Democrat elected officials including Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, DC Mayor Vincent Gray -- and others -- have threatened to block Chick-fil-A from opening in those cities because the company’s President, Mr. Cathy, was unabashed in expressing his Christian faith.

This state-sponsored terrorism by Democrats is exactly the kind of religious test for access to political power and commercial success our forefathers fled from when they came to the New World – which is why the Framers of the Constitution made it illegal.
It took real courage for Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy -- whose fast food restaurants are already famous for their policy of being closed on Sunday -- to say that his company is in "support of the traditional family."
This is exactly the kind of courageous stand for traditional Judeo-Christian values that the Republican Party and its candidates should make every day – and who better than Dan Cathy to come to the Republican National Convention in Tampa in order to show the GOP how do that?
In the wake of the anti-Christian attacks on Dan Cathy, and Chick-fil-A, FOX News commentator Mike Huckabee organized today -- August 1 -- as "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day." We plan to enjoy a great Chick-fil-A meal today, but we don’t think conservatives can just grab a sandwich and go home this election.
We need someone to step forward at the Republican Convention to say these biblical values are the values we stand for everyday and these are the values upon which we will campaign and govern. If you agree that the Republican Party should run on the kind of values Dan Cathy expressed, then please sign our petition urging Governor Romney and Republican National Committee Chairman Priebus to invite Mr. Cathy to speak at the Republican National Convention.
