When the president of Chick-Fil-A took a Biblical stand that marriage is to be between a man and a woman, the gay-rights activists went to town against this company who also stays closed on Sundays so families can worship together. Today many people have taken a stand by visiting a Chick-Fil-A near them to say thank you for standing up for what is right.
I took the kids over for lunch today before noon. Parking was scarce. the drive-through line was long and the people were in abundance. God blessed us with a parking spot within walking distance and when we walked in the doors we were at the end of the line that was zig-zagging around the one side of the building. I was impressed by the number of patient, happy people who were waiting in line for lunch. I applaud the Chick-Fil-A staff for working quickly and efficiently to take and make peoples' orders. The line moved forward almost constantly and we had placed our order within 20 minutes. We had about a 10 minute wait for our food. Again this was great to show the efficiency of the staff who were their usual friendly selves. By the time we had placed our order the line had grown outside the doors and when I drove by again around 2:30 pm they were still very busy.
When we arrived and were looking for a parking space, Kent wanted to know why there were so many people and cars there. I told him it was because Chick-Fil-A stood up for what the Bible says by saying that marriage should be between a man and a woman. Just like how God created Eve for Adam. And that a marriage between a man and another man or a woman and another woman is wrong. That's not how God created marriage. Kent said, "It's like the Israelites! They stood up for what was right and did good, too."
Thank you, Chick-Fil-A!!!
If you haven't been to Chick-Fil-A yet today and you have one near you please show your support. If you don't have one near you pray for them to continue to stand strong for what is right.
