Chick-Fil-A


So, the title got you here, right? You wanted to know what I have to say in regards to a business owner making his personal opinions public when he was asked direct questions during an interview.  You want to know whether you are going to link to my blog to support your position, or whether you will link to my blog as some inane drivel by yet another conservative christian.

Here's the thing. I don't want to be known as a conservative christian. I don't want to be knows as a liberal christian. I don't want to be known as a republican christian. I don't want to be known as a democrat christian.

I want to be known as someone that loves Jesus, reveres God, and does what I can to share God's love.
I want to be known as someone that has convictions and stands by them.

I'm going to say something here, and people might not like it.


How many people participated in 'Support Chick-fil-A Day'? You did? Super.
You got up, stood in line for hours and spent money on food that isn't good for you and brought it home for your family. Great.
Tell me, how does that communicate love? Now, some wealthy business owner is wealthier today.
That's really very nice. Great.
When is the last time you stood for hours serving someone?
How many of you engaged in earnest prayer while you were supporting a fast food business? Just wondering.
I'm not here to tell you that you were wrong. It's great to see all the photos of thousands of people showing up to a food service business to show solidarity. Now what?
Do we go home all fat and happy licking the sauce off our face and call it good?
I sure hope not. Now that our bodies are nourished, let's go spend those dollars and all that time on service. 
Are you offended? No? Don't worry, I'll probably get to you tomorrow.

I only hope as many show up atthe Polls as showed up at Chick-Fil-A and yep, I was one of them that was there and yep, my convictions are pretty strong when it comes to my Constitution. And Yep, I agree with you about "serving" and yep, you are probably gonna make someone upset just because you said what you "believe" I love you Niecy:):)
