In response to attacks by the powerful and offensive homosexual lobby, friends of Chick-fil-A are promoting National Eat at Chick-fil-A Day on July 25th and August 1st. I’ll be there on both days. In fact, all the employees at our various businesses will be eating at Chick-fil-A the next two Wednesdays.
As is typical of the homosexual lobby, many angry messages were left on Chick-fil-A's Facebook page, including:
“Hate mongers! Never again! Not another $ from me.”
“Goodbye Chikkk-fil-a! Your food was delicious, but I can no longer eat nuggets filled with hate!”
Of course, it’s not about hate. It’s about morality and common sense. No one is denied service at a Chick-fil-A restaurant. All types of sinners eat at Chick-fil-A as they do at other restaurants. No one asks what kind of sex they’re engaged in when an order is taken.
The folks at Chick-fil-A don’t support divorce, but they don’t refuse service to divorced couples. Divorced couples don’t boycott the restaurant because of the company’s views on biblical marriage and their support of biblical marriage seminars.
Support for Chik-fil-A is getting national attention:
“In response to the boycott threats against Chick-fil-A, Mike Huckabee, who was a 2008 presidential candidate, last week called on his radio show listeners to support the Cathy family by making July 25th National Eat at Chick-fil-A Day.
‘Imagine how clearly that message would be heard across the nation if Chick-fil-A reported record sales this Wednesday!’ said [National Organization for Marriage's’ [Brian] Brown, who has joined Huckabee in supporting Chick-fil-A day. ‘Please join me this Wednesday in supporting this courageous company, while at the same time sending a powerful message of support to every individual and every company with the courage to stand for marriage.’”
It’s amazing how it’s OK to support liberal causes, but just try to support a conservative moral cause. “Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we're considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant,” Huckabee wrote.
I’ve started my diet to lose about ten pounds, but I’m going to break the diet on the next two Wednesdays with a chicken sandwich and some waffle fries. And I’m going to enjoy every Chick-fil-A calorie.
