Fox Nation's Todd Starnes has called Chick-Fil-A protesters “anti-Christian, anti-chicken heterophobic bigots.”

The fast-food chain with more than 1,600 outlets mostly in the South was flooded on Wednesday with a show of support for its CEO Dan Cathy, who created a firestorm of controversy when he said gay marriage is “inviting God's judgment on our nation.”

The Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day was organized by former Arkansas Governor and Baptist minister Mike Huckabee. Former presidential hopefuls Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann also showed support.

“God-fearing Americans are sending a message to militant homosexual activists – and their Democratic handlers,” Starns wrote. “'We love chicks.'”

“I suspect that the public flogging of Chick-Fil-A has awakened a sleeping giant evangelical, pro-family, patriotic Americans – who are rising up to say enough,” he added.
