Chick-fil-A Employee an Example of Love in the Face of Hostility from Weird Liberal

August 3, 2012

Hat tip to the Blaze, and Wintery Knight.  This has also been covered by the Daily Caller.

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.

    You know, I’m surprised he lost his job…


  2. Me too. I’m not sure whether to consider it a good development or not.

  3. Snoodickle Says:

    Hilarious. I would have fired this guy too, he is a loose cannon.


  4. I think that makes some sense. If he’s willing to violate social norms to do something like this, might he violate boundaries and do something bad at work as well?

    Maybe not, but why risk it?

    • Tevyeh Says:

      I don’t really think that’s the issue; I think it would be inappropriate for Vante to fire an ordinary employee over something like this. But the CFO? Totally appropriate.


    • Because he’s closer to being the face of the company, or because a work-related lapse in judgment on his part would do more damage to the company?

      • Tevyeh Says:

        A combination of the two. A CFO who records and posts a video of himself acting in this manner signals to the world that the company has a loose canon for a CFO. If Vante were a publicly traded company, we would have seen its stock price take a dip following this incident.

    As to whether Christians would line up like that to work at food banks, is it worth mentioning that there is a wait list months long at the Freestore Foodbank? I’m pretty sure Christians are lining up to help the hungry.


Agree? Disagree? Thoughts?
