As Hollywood stars, mayors and corporations distance themselves from Chick-Fil-A following the company’s admitted anti-gay marriage stance, TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s oldest son Josh is weighing in on the subject and supporting the controversial company.
Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy recently told Baptist Press, “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” which angered gay marriage supporters and caused a backlash against the company. Now former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is heading up a day of support for the restaurant on August 1 and Josh Duggar Tweeted his endorsement for the event.
Josh also defended himself in a previous Tweet, writing that even though he supports Chick-Fil-A he doesn’t discriminate against people himself.
“I treat everyone with honor, dignity & respect – regardless of belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender & I stand with #ChickFilA!” Josh wrote.
