Chick-Fil-A values
New York Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/31/2014 5:06:34 AM

Remember how liberals pounced on Chick-Fil-A’s owner/president for saying more or less what Barack Obama said in his 2008 campaign for president? That marriage was between a man and a woman? Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared “Chick-Fil-A’s values are not Chicago values.” Boston Mayor Thomas Menino vowed to block the chain from coming to Beantown. Gotham’s then-City Council speaker, Christine Quinn, demanded Chick-Fil-A’s one New York store be sent packing. Well, this week Chick-Fil-A values were back in the news. When the deep South was paralyzed by snow that stranded motorists for hours and forced others to abandon cars, Chick-Fil-A moved in. In

Traditional American values: work hard, do your best, support and raise a family are under a viscous, never ending attack by the hate filled left. Those folks don´t even understand they are being intolerant, bigoted and make a of mockery of the ludicrous claims they scream daily. All those who defy their lunacy are called racists, homophobes, haters, Nazis, etc... Chick-Fil-A deserves great respect for doing this. The left deserves only contempt.

Hooray for Chick-Fil-A and God bless them. Meanwhile the Democrats figuring they had a captive audience were going from car to car fundraising and promising the Sun would be out again in 2 days and Global Warming would continue.

Love me some Chick-Fil-A; I get a box of the nuggets to chomp on while I´m making up my mind what else to order.

For the record: this is the only fast food restaurant hiring teens behind the counter where the youngsters DO NOT JIVE TALK each other and show off for the customers.

We read this story elsewhere and watched videos of the news reports. That was a great and kind thing those folks did. Can´t expect the libs to understand it. And it did not cost anyone a dime. The employees and owner were HAPPY to do it. Makes your heart sing.

I read a story about a man who, rather than drive, walked 9 miles to get home. On the way, people would come out and give him hot coffee, warm gloves, a hat, a scarf etc. His wife said he looked like a ragamuffin but it only showed how kind and hospitable people can be.

I think this is the Chick-Fil-A my family ate at when we were on our way to Florida last year - it was near Birmingham. The people were as friendly as could be and the food was good as it always is.

Living in Atlanta, it was amazing to see so many heartwarming stories during this crazy disaster. A Target store in Roswell opened it´s door as well as gave people anything they needed. They ended up having a bus of stranded mentally disabled adults come in for shelter and they gave them whatever they needed. These poor people made it into the Target after being stranded for 10 hours on the bus together. Chipper Jones ended up hopping on his ATV to go find a fellow baseball player who was stranded and took him home. A guy up the road from us with a 4 wd starting picking up women who were walking in dress shoes and taking them home. It was just so wonderful to see people helping people!

Not at all surprising as this is the philosophy of the Chick-Fil-A family. The ONLY fast food restaurant I will walk into, much less eat their food. Well trained polite employees, clean restaurants, respect for customers, and great chicken. And have always loved that they close on Sundays, which shows that you don´t have to give up your personal values to be successful.

I´m with all the above.

Chick-Fil-A somehow sidestepped the progressive move into the parallel universe called liberalism.

Chick-Fil-A is the restaurant that Lawrence Welk would have owned. And it´s the only Fast Food place we ever stop at. Just love it.

I always remind my Sunday School class kids, "You can never go wrong standing for Truth"

And the truth is, homosexuality is deviant behavior, it´s wrong both physically, and Biblicallly. God was against dead set against it in the Old Testament (death penalty offense), and His attitude did not change in the New. The best homo is a celibate homo, which, in practice, is almost an oxymoron.

Have you ever heard of a homo couple ´saving themselves´ for their wedding night, or retaining their virginity for the right opposite gender confused individual? Of course not, because it´s all about lust, not love. There is no restraint for morality, since it is absolutely anti-thetical to morality.

Proud to have the #1 Chick-Fil-A franchise blocks from my house. We don´t even complain about the daily winding drive-thru lines snaking their way through the shopping center parking lot. A LOT of charity donations from this location as well, including to the Tea Party. SALUTE!

Both of my sons got their first job at local Chick Fil A´s (younger son got his at the smaller one in the mall, just so no-one would think he got the job because of his brother). Both franchise holders went above and beyond for them, hiring them back after school terms and such, younger son was promoted almost immediately, older son was the go-to guy to wear the cow costume--haha! Like other posters, it is about the only fast-food place I frequent. Been walking to work lately, saves a lot of gas money--but a lot of that savings goes for chicken biscuits in the morning--LOL! Proud to support them. And no, Rahm, those are NOT "Chicago values" they manifest--putz...

Atlanta owned Chick-fil-a is a soruce of pride around here-like Birmingham they were a blessing to many One truck was on it´s way to deliver to a large party-got stuck and just went from car to car giving out the food for free. Love the stories that came out of this storm. At 27 degrees at noon you new it was going to be bad, and this happens the first of the decade every 10 years or so-so in 2023 or 04-it will happen again and the city fathers will be suprised again.

Coming back from Florida in November. Stopped in Valdosta at McDonalds. It was an excellent location for a fast food business. Lot´s of traffic. It was lunch time. Inside they had 2 customers waiting for their already placed orders. There was one line and one customer was placing an order. Another behind him next in line to place his order. And us. After 10 minutes everything was exactly the same except the guy in front of us had moved forward to the register and was yet to place his order. And the guy that had just placed his order joined the other two that were still waiting for food.
All the employees had that expression of gruff attitude. The entire place was as quiet and grim as a funeral home.

We gave up and drove less than a mile and found a Chik Fil A. The place was packed to the gills. Inside was certainly more than a hundred people. There were five lines. Plus the drive through. All moving rapidly. Our order was placed within two minutes of entering the building. Three minutes later we were sitting down eating. All the workers had smiles. And so did all the customers. There were many conversations. It was not quiet and it certainly was not grim. It was like a big busy happy city. We felt good.

I have seen this difference repeated between Chik Fil A and McDonalds on many occasions.

The response of Chick-Fil-A to a real disaster as that that happened this past week goes to show one that the majority of American people do what ever that can to help those in need. It shows the Christian background this country was founded on. And it isn´t just one entity that came forward. It was the American spirit. IMHO, This kind of action could not happen in any other country on earth.

This is indeed a warm, happy story...and it has brought out the best in all of us. #´s 3 & 4 spoke me mind best. Thanx, OP, for bringing this to us.

Some thoughts: Will all this superb PR help their bottom line? Of course, and deservedly so. Is that why they did it? Merely asking this question betrays my cynicism. They did it because it was "the right thing to do," [What a novel concept; you could could a mighty (and united) country on this.]

A few years ago during the other Chick-Fil-A news event over their values (July or Aug 2012), one of our fellow L-dotters made a really funny comment that I passed on to one of my pastors, because he had mentioned Chick-fil-A in his sermon right after that event. The pastor spoke about the outpouring of support for Chick-fil-A, which he felt may have been evidence that the Holy Spirit had something to do with it.

Unfortunately, I don´t any longer have the name of the L-dotter who posted this comment which I found so funny, but here it is:
If Chik(sp)-fil-A wants to see their sales go through the roof, they should put together a new "Obama Happy Meal"...two left wings and a chicken butt. I would buy a dozen and FedMex* them to the White House.
* a new undocumented delivery service that throws the package through your open back door.

I appreciate and support Chick-fil-a for standing by their beliefs. However, I am sorry #17, but that is both irresponsible and ignorant to say that all homosexuals are that way. No, it is no more often a question of lust vs. love than it would be for a heterosexual. Despite what you think, homosexuals, in general, are not much different than the rest of us. The only real difference is they are attracted to the same sex (which, in most cases, they did not choose), instead of attracted to the opposite sex (which I am sure you didn´t choose either). The reason the men tend to be more promiscuous is because they are men. Men generally have greater sex drive than women. At any rate, they truly do fall in love too, just like everyone else.

1889: What the White House
Easter Egg Roll Looked Like

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

One of the songs they sang was Kumbaya. When Alexis Sanchez used the bathroom in her college dorm, she brought her iPod with her. “I would blast it,” she says. “I would play ´D. A. N. C.

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight
