Okay, I feel like an idiot.
I realize that comment leaves me open to all sorts of snappy come-backs, but it is true, nonetheless. See, I didn’t go to Chick-Fil-A yesterday. I was planning to go, and then I forgot!
The closest Chick-Fil-A to my house is a good 30 minutes away, but it does happen to be close to the campus where I am attending college this year. So, since I had orientation on August 1st, and that coincided with our day of support for Chick-Fil-A’s right to do business, I thought it was providence! The only problem is that I got so wrapped up in orientation and all of the crap that comes with it, that it was only when I was pulling back into my driveway at the end of the day that I remembered where I had planned to eat.
Suddenly, I lamented my having eaten lunch in the cafeteria (and let me tell you, there was no small amount of remorse for having made that decision even before I remembered about Chick-Fil-A Day).
But you guys didn’t need me, did you..?
Normally I would chuckle at the notion of my being proud of a fast food chain. I mean, why would I be proud? I don’t design their food, or even serve it. There are so few of them in my city that I rarely even get to eat there. And I certainly wasn’t the one who stood up in support of traditional marriage at the risk of my right to operate my business.
But I am proud, even so.
I’m proud to be associated with the great many of you who stood up for Christians under attack by “tolerant” politicians seeking to deny them the right to operate. The massive lines at Chick-Fil-A yesterday buoyed my spirit. A clear message was sent yesterday, and I’m betting that more than a few Democrat operatives and strategists had trouble sleeping last night. I never thought that I would see people getting heartburn from fast food without even eating it!
The liberals have good cause to be scared. Their world is slowly crumbling around them. They truly do not understand what happened yesterday, but they know it doesn’t look like a good thing for them. If only they could fully grasp…
I believe that the turnout yesterday is going to look like a drop in the bucket when conservatives and libertarians show up at the polls in November, and you best believe that I won’t be too wrapped up in my own world to forget this time.
That has me proud… and them terrified!
An earlier article I wrote about Chick-Fil-A is here, if you would like to read it.
I would like to send a heartfelt thanks to all of the people who have taken the time to read my posts here. This blog remains small compared to some others, but, in less than two weeks, it has grown exponentially because of you. I greatly appreciate that.
