Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary is joining Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee and others in standing behind Chick-fil-A’s anti-gay bigotry.

Southwestern Baptist, which is part of the Southern Baptist Convention and is one of the largest seminaries in the world with more than 3,500 students, announced in a press release Wednesday that it plans to purchase 200 sandwiches from a Chick-fil-A near its campus on Aug. 1 as part of Huckabee’s “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”

“Southwestern Seminary wants to encourage Chick-fil-A’s support of the traditional family and the first amendment right of Dan Cathy to live out his religious beliefs,” said Thomas White, vice president for student services and communications. “We gladly partner with organizations like Chick-fil-A who take a stand for faith, and we will also be providing all of our students with Chick-fil-A sandwiches during our all-campus picnic in September.”

The school plans to purchase the sandwiches beginning at 11:30 a.m. next Wednesday from the Chick-fil-A at 3580 Altamesa Blvd. in Fort Worth.

As we mentioned the other day, LGBT activists are planning same-sex kiss-ins at Chick-fil-A restaurants across the country on Friday, Aug. 3.
