Chick-fil-A Employee an Example of Love in the Face of Hostility from Weird Liberal
August 3, 2012
Apparently the man has since been fired for his public, hostile behavior, which may or may not have some interesting implications for the larger culture war. (If you’re keeping score, recall that the homosexual lobby has succeeded in getting a man and his wife both fired for his privately expressing his opinion, by e-mail, not to a bottom-rung drive-through employee, but to the homosexual organization itself.)
Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day (August 1st), by the way, was a great success, drawing huge crowds across the country; you can get some sense of it from Hot Air, the Daily Beast, and even a New York Times blogger. See also this local-news site in Pennsylvania. The day may have set a single-day sales record for Chick-fil-A.
Finally, the Blaze points out that a lot of liberals on social media are sharing a picture of Appreciation Day bearing the legend,
You’d never see that many Christians lined up to help at a food bank or homeless shelter[.]
And that’s something Jesus actually said to do.
As the Blaze points out, that’s simply not true. Just last month, Glenn Beck brought together tens of thousands of volunteers together in one place; they went out and “rebuilt homes, renovated churches, fed the poor and engaged in other activities” (hyperlink in original). Read the whole thing.
Also read Who Really Cares, by Arthur C. Brooks. Don’t judge it by its cover (with its arguably inflammatory title and subtitles, which I assume were chosen by the publisher, not the author). Read the author’s introduction, and then decide whether to read the book.
