It was the summer of 1980. I was working at a store in a mall in Memphis, Tennessee when I was introduced to the pleasures of a Chic fil A sandwich.
The mall had a non-existent food court and Chic Fil A was the only food outlet at the mall.
I have enjoyed their food ever since then.
I can also say in 32 years of eating there, I have never had a bad experience. Their employees always act as if they are happy to be at work and when you thank them for getting the order, instead of the somewhat rude “No problem,” they always say, “my pleasure.”
The left is now making war in Chic fil A. They do not like it that the President of Chic fil A came out against gay marriage. Dan Cathy, like his father who founded Chic fil A is a devout protestant Christian and he supports traditional marriage and family values. He has not said at least publicly that he opposes gay marriage, only that he supports traditional marriage.
Chic fil A does not refuse to serve anyone based on whether they are gay, straight or confused. In fact, they have made it a point of saying that they treat all of their customers with dignity.
That is not good enough for the radical left.
Because Chic fil A is does not carry the water for the far left, they are now making war on it.
Thomas Menino is the Mayor of Boston. He is also a member of the Party of Treason, which means he is a complete idiot. He has vowed to keep Chic fil A out of Boston. He is obviously too stupid to be able to figure out that his title is Mayor not dictator. The high Fuhrer of Boston does not have the right to block a business just because he does not agree with the politics of the owners.
The controversy continues. The Muppets have dropped their support of Chic fil A but Mike Huckabee has come out in support of Chic fil A. Well more people like Huckabee than like Kermit the frog.
Now, gays are planning a same sex kiss day at Chic fil A. They know a lot of people who patronize Chic fil A will probably find that offensive. If I owned Chic fil A, I’d have the protestors arrested for a demonstration on private property. The people at Chic fil A are much nicer. They will probably ask the protestors if they would like their iced tea refilled.
This battle is not about gay marriage, though that is what the left is spinning it as.
This is a battle about freedom. The left always screams that we must be tolerant of their beliefs but when is the left ever tolerant of someone who disagrees with them. The left has repeatedly tried to shut down conservatives from Rush, to Beck to Fox News and the list goes on.
Liberals, like Boston’s idiot in chief, do not want anyone to have a choice. They do not want anyone to disagree with them. Liberals would prefer to silence those who disagree with them. Liberals like Boston’s wannabe dictator would prefer a dictatorship where they can simply rule and if you disagree with them, they’ll put you in jail.
We must stand up for Chic fil A. I encourage everyone to stop by Chic fil A and have a meal there or at least get some of their great iced tea.
When you do, tell them you are a supporter of the Tea Party and you stand with Chic fil A and stand for freedom.
If you cannot find a Chic fil A near you on August first, be sure to visit other businesses with Christian values.
Visit your local IN & OUT Burger stand. Delicious!
Thanks for the idea!
That is a great suggestion. I don't have a branch near me but I do have an I/O Restaurant nearby. I will stop in on 8/1 and let them know (again) how much I appreciate them and also will buy products at the Chick-fil-A gift shop online. http://shopchick-fil-a.com/Default.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1
I know their cup will runneth over.
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Randy, do you think the "ballerina" (Rahm Emanuel) in Chicago will do the same? I doubt it. He'd rather send dead fish to the Ceo and family.
where will the attacks on Christians and biblical values end?
It will end when Jesus Christ returns. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Oops, got carried away.
Heterosexual Unions have been with us 6000 years (Adam & Eve in The Garden of Eden) .
Homosexual Unions have been with us since "Sodom and Gommarroh"
The Holy Bible states that the Heterosexual Union of man and woman was Blessed by Yahweh (GOD) and all other is not. Jesus attended and "blessed" the couple at the wedding in Cana of aman and woman and even "turned water into wine forf the guests at the bequest of his Mother (Mary).
Truett and Dan Cathy are following GOD's Word on the subject of marriage. In the United States of America Citizens cannot be discriminated against or harrassed about their "Religious Beliefs". The Cathey's have been practicing ALL of GOD's Laws fgor their Lifetimes.
So "get off their case" and "pratice" whatever you "Believe".
New King James Version (NKJV)
8 No, you yourselves do wrong and cheat, and you do these things to your brethren! 9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,[a] nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 7:2 Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.
A question about today's crowds and what might possibly transpire on Friday. . .today, folks were orderly and ordering. . .on Friday, if they simply stand around on CFA's property "kissing" can the manager of the store ask them to leave (as they may be considered interfering with business/paying customers vs. non-paying customers)--if they aren't buying anything, can't they be asked to leave the store/property?
I think if they try that here some of our "good ol boyz will plant a kiss on em"
The appreciation day should of been on Friday.
Chick-Fi-A has always done well. It is the cleanest, best food, reasonable priced and most of all pleasant employees....in the" Fast Food Industry". They have always closed on Sundays (just like in the 40s, 50s and 60s) All Over the South.
The Cathy's are Christians and practice their "Faith" 7 days a week. You never have to worry about any member of your family being disrespected in one of their establishments. That is not luck but rather "proper conduct".
