Chicken, most of us love it, but some people think it has an agenda.
Leftists have made it known that they don’t like the fast-food chain Chick-fil-A, but the company scored a huge win in the state of Texas.
State legislators just passed a law that prohibits companies from being discriminated against. The company had recently faced backlash for it’s contributions to organizations like (gasp) the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
The law comes as a response to Chick-fil-A being prohibited from being given a location at San Antonio’s airport. You remember that, right? The tolerant left was displaying their tolerance by prohibiting a company with Christian values from operating.
Several years ago Dan Cathy, the current chairman, president, and CEO of Chick-fil-A, pledged to his father, Truett Cathy, that he would continue Chick-fil-A’s philanthropic work, never open on Sundays and never take the company public.
“As committed Christians we will live a life of selfless devotion to His calling in our lives.”
Since then Cathy has kept his promise, and the company has been blessed many times over. Funny, a biblical principle like serving the Lord yields a bountiful harvest… who would have thought?
For the fourth straight year Chick-fil-A has been named the top fast-food chain according to the American Customer Satisfaction index. The company had this to say about their recognition for outstanding service:
“We are honored by the ranking and grateful to our customers for choosing Chick-fil-A, it’s truly our pleasure to serve them. Our commitment to serving great food with gracious hospitality started more than 50 years ago with our founder’s first restaurant. Today, the more than 145,000 individuals who represent the brand in 2,400 restaurants make honors like this possible by continuing his commitment to service.”
Right there is a real world example of how serving in faith yields great rewards. We can all take a lesson from Chick-fil-A. Even though we know we all crave it on THE ONE DAY WE CAN’T HAVE IT!
Now go out there, and get yourself a chicken sandwich with a large sweet tea. As long as it isn’t Sunday…
