“The great irony was Chick-fil-A said, ‘We’re not going to work for the Salvation Army anymore because we’re going to focus on homelessness and feeding people,’ and they disassociated themselves from the number one homeless and feeding organization in the world,” the former governor added. “That makes no sense.”
(Susan Berry – Breitbart) Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said the decision of Chick-fil-A to end its charitable donations to Christian organizations such as the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes “does not win them friends” but will, instead, “cost them friends.”
Appearing as a guest Tuesday on Family Research Council President Tony Perkins’ radio show Washington Watch, Huckabee said the decision by Chick-fil-A is a tremendous “disappointment” and added its consequences will be “far broader” than the popular fast-food chain itself.
Perkins pointed to the many organizations and politicians who have supported Chick-fil-A’s right to express its Christian beliefs in the public square.
“Many people have fought for Chick-fil-A, and for them to capitulate to the bullies is betrayal,” he said.
