Those Christian bums at Chick-fil-A

© 2018 Jim Spence - A few years ago several Democrat mayors decided they would do everything in their power to make sure no more Chick-fil-A restaurants would be built in their cities. They tried to organize boycotts because Chick-fil-A is a Christian-owned company that closes on Sundays and often cites biblical verses in support of GOP policies.
Though I have only been to a Chick-fil-A once, apparently this company has millions of customers who love their products.
Over the years Chick-fil-A has become one of the favorite whipping boys of Democrats and their pals in the news media. Of course like the coverage of everyone and everything else media Democrats oppose philosophically, there are never any positives with a company like Chick-fil-A.
Last week when the massive ice and snow storm hit the south the Christians rolled up their sleeves while the Democrat-dominated news media was content to show footage of miles of cars stranded on the frozen interstate highways. Several national news broadcasts reported that school kids were trapped on buses for almost 24 hours because of all of the ice. They reported on parents going frantic wondering where their kids were.
News consumers did not see reports during all of the dangers presented by the cold weather of the actions of a Chick-fil-A team from a restaurant along Highway 280 in Birmingham, Alabama. It seems that Mark Meadows, owner of that Chick-fil-A closed early the day of the storm and tried to send his own employees home to safety. Unfortunately, or fortunately, many of the employees were unable to get home. There were too many stranded motorists stuck on the roads making them impassible. Some of the cars near the restaurant had been stranded for up to seven hours.
Meadows and his employees quickly decided to stay at the restaurant. They re-opened the kitchen and began preparing hot sandwiches as fast as they could. With several hundred sandwiches in hand, they headed out into the cold, ice, and snow, and began distributing the hot meals to the stranded motorists on both sides of Highway 280.
Some of the drivers tried to pay them for the food, but Meadows and his employees refused to take money. Audrey Pitt, manager of the Chick-fil-A, explained why: “This company is based on taking care of people and loving people before you’re worried about money or profit. We were just trying to follow the model that we’ve all worked under for so long and the model that we’ve come to love. There was really nothing else we could have done but try to help people any way we could.”
The Chick-fil-A employees not only passed out hot food, they helped push cars off the roads and even up steep inclines. In short, they did whatever they could to help. Meadows kept the restaurant open all night so that stranded motorists could have a warm place to stay. Many motorists slept in booths or on the benches. In the morning, Meadows and his team again served hot food for their overnight guests and again refused to accept any payment.
The point here is simple. Our Democrat-dominated news media in America has become increasingly hostile towards anything and particularly anyone, who is openly Christian. Their attitude towards real tolerance can best be summed up by the person on the right side of the picture inserted in this story.
