Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day Draws HUGE Crowds Coming To Support The Right To Eat In America Without Liberal Fascists Dictating To You

You go, Dan Cathy.  A lot more people are behind you than the perennially smug and snide propagandist media will ever acknowledge:

Keep in mind this “appreciation day” was just something that Mike Hukabee announced would be a nice idea to have on his TV show.

JACKSON TWP. — If Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy wanted to gauge Stark County’s support for backing “the biblical definition of a family,” he would be pleased by the massive turnout Wednesday at the chain’s locations here.

Perspiration dripped down the face of off-duty Jackson Township police officer Craig Hall as he directed a seemingly endless line of vehicles queuing up for lunch at Chick-fil-A’s Dressler Road drive-thru.

Hall, who arrived at 11 a.m., said the line of cars on Dressler waiting to turn in had to be rerouted around neighboring restaurant Ruby Tuesday to avoid a massive traffic jam.

“We haven’t had any problems,” he said. “Just one car stalled in the lane, and people got out and pushed it out of the way.”

Delaney Young of Perry Township waited in the car line with his wife, Mary, and sister-in-law Bobbie Bates of North Canton. He said they are members of Canton Baptist Temple and learned of the support day through their church .

“Chick-fil-A has the right to make these statements,” said Delaney. His family was decked out in white T-shirts with black lettering that said, “God is in control.”

Customers continued to stream in on foot from adjoining parking lots. By 12:30, more than 50 people were waiting in line outside just to get in the doors.

Franchise owner Doug Pugh said the response is overwhelming. “It’s a great day.”

CONTROVERSIAL COMMENTS

Cathy told the Baptist Press last month that the Atlanta-based company was “guilty as charged” for backing “the biblical definition of a family.” That unleashed a torrent of criticism from gay rights groups and others, who have called for boycotts and efforts to block the chain from opening new stores.

Opponents of the company’s stance are planning “Kiss Mor Chiks” for Friday, when they are encouraging people of the same sex to show up at Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country and kiss each other.

In response, Cathy supporters turned out in droves Wednesday to support the restaurant chain. The line was 50 or more at times at the Westfield Belden Village mall store.

WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY

Marilyn Nagle of North Canton carried out a bag of food from the Dressler Road location.

“It’s amazing how many people you meet when you’re standing in line like that. … I heard about this from friends. I wish I had come for breakfast before the crowds gathered.”

“I came because I wanted to support (CEO Cathy) who says marriage should be between a man and woman. So if you know a man, I’m a woman.”

Nick Toussant of Hartville said his daughter told him about the event.

“Free speech is not a liberty to take lightly. I’m afraid the almighty dollar speaks loudest.”

Mary Lou Wolfe of Plain Township and her husband went out of their way to visit Chick-fil-A for lunch, a restaurant they don’t normally patronize.

She was impressed by the crowd and the employees who were pleasantly hustling to deal with the crowd crush.

“What I noticed most of all was the customers. Everyone was so happy to see such an outpouring of support. They didn’t mind waiting in line at all,” Wolfe said.

“It was an exhilarating experience.”

Wolfe saw her purchase as supporting free speech, saying the company’s owner has faced unfair criticism.

“Just because a person has a personal belief doesn’t mean his product should be boycotted.”

It’s going on all over the country.  And like everything else, them lines are HUGE in Texas.  In Dallas people are waiting TWO HOURS to order their meal because of the long, looooong lines.  And God bless ’em for their stand.

Sodom and Gomorrah (Chicago and Boston) weren’t blessed, contrary to the liberal narrative; they were destroyed.

What is most amazing in all of this is that liberal cities are awash in bankruptcy and violence and yet they want to block businesses like Chick-Fil-A from bringing their jobs and their tax dollars in.  Chicago is literally taxing the bejeezus out of people to pay for the deteriorating social services while chasing out businesses that pay taxes and further broaden the tax base by creating jobs.

The success of this “appreciation day” underscores a fact that never ceases to anger me.  The left does boycott after boycott and punishes businesses into cowering to their demands on a regular basis.  Conservatives generally speak of some moral high ground and tell their audiences and constituencies to support “progressive businesses” such as Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream just to show how “tolerant” we are compared to the left.  And our little moral victory is exactly why the right continues to have less and less influence over culture even though there are easily twice as many conservatives as there are liberals.

I say that’s a truck load of crap.

If mobs of angry conservatives were to start boycotting businesses that don’t represent their values the way the left does we might actually get to a point where both sides agree to lay off each other.  But that’s not the way it works: rather, the side that has half the people generates ten times the impact because they do what we won’t do.

We need to understand what is happening in our culture right now today.  There is something toxic going on that is revealed in polls of Christian teens: In The Jesus Survey Book (2012), Mike Nappa documents that fully one out of three Christian teenagers believes that Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha and other great religious leaders all lead to heaven.  The question is whether morality and religious truth claims are more like math (one right answer) or more like meaninglessness (whatever floats your boat).  If Jesus claimed to be “the Way, and the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” as He did in John 14:6, that is either truth like 1 + 1 = 2 or it is like an arbitrary color preference (you like red but I prefer blue).  Jesus very clearly meant for His unique claim to be “the Resurrection and the Life” (John 11:25) to be the former and not the latter.

But our own children are being undermined by a politically correct view of “tolerance” that demands that all views be accorded the same status.  And so morality is just a bunch of arbitary preferences and how dare you hold your arbitrary preference above mine?  Even though I as a liberal very definitely hold MY preference over YOURS.  We are allowing our children to be indoctrinated such that they cannot believe the truth no matter what we teach them because of a more fundamental truth claim that is being pushed into our culture at every level.  Such that even Christian kids are being brainwashed by an idiotic and frankly self-refuting view.  And I say “self-refuting” because the left’s demonizing free speech amounts to a disproof that they actually hold to any true “tolerance” at all.  On the one hand liberals tell our children that there is no one right or wrong way to believe, and on the other hand they are simultanesouly teaching our children that in fact there is only one legitimate way to believe, and that is their way.  That is an obvious fundamental and inherent self-contradiction, but we have degnerated to the point that we simply no longer care any more about such facts.

This is a war that we are losing day by day.  Because we have utterly refused to exercise the power over this culture that our numbers ought to accord us while a much smaller minority increasingly defines this culture with toxic views.  History proves over and over again that if a people or a culture aren’t willing and able to stand up for what they believe, they will find themselves supplanted.  And that is what is going on in our Laodicean Age (Revelation 3:15).

While this is an extremely positive day for conservatives and for supporting conservative values, I would argue that it also shows that we not only need to do a far better job of protecting our businesses, but also of turning liberal tactics against liberals.  Because we are allowing the rug to be pulled right out from under us even as we think we’re standing on it.
