Skip to comments.Chick-Fil-A and the one day that changed the world

Nine Days that Changed the World is a book about Pope John Paul IIs nine-day trip to Poland in 1979. The Popes pilgrimage laid the groundwork for the revolution of conscience that eventually brought down the Communist regimes throughout Eastern Europe. Thus those nine days really did change the world. Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day could very well be the One Day that changes our world this year.
During Pope John Pauls first trip to his homeland after being elected Pope, he did not assemble an army. He did not set up a network of spies. He did not give rabble-rousing speeches. He did not go to inspire a revolution.
He just preached the love of Jesus Christ, the person who is Truth personified. And literally millions of people came to listen. Those millions of people looked around and saw that they were not alone. The Polish people had been living in an oppressive regime since the end of World War II. The Communist regime created fear. The fear created a spiritual isolation: people not speaking their minds, not trusting each other, consuming a constant diet of lies. People became accustomed to not speaking truths that were right in front of their eyes.
The Popes visit brought millions of people into the sunlight. At one of his appearances, people started chanting: We want God. We want God. They werent supposed to want God. They hadnt known how many of their neighbors also wanted God.
They began being unafraid to live in the truth. And once truth could have its say, it began to take care of itself.
On Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, millions of people saw that they were not alone. All those ordinary Americans who decided to Eat More Chicken were standing in line for religious freedom, for the institution of marriage, for free speech. They sat in the traffic jams out of respect and gratitude for the Cathy Family for taking a stand.
Every one of us who stood in one of those lines, or who sat in one of those traffic jams or who gloated on facebook over the photos, can see that we are not alone.
We are tired of the oppressive lies of the sexual revolution. We know that men and women are different, not interchangeable. We know that marriage is about children and what they need, not just about adults and how they feel. We know that sex is much more than a sterile recreational activity. We know that every sexual act is deeply significant, even when we treat our sex acts as meaningless and our sex partners like toys.
We believe that God loves each and every person into existence. We believe our spousal love is meant to be an image of Gods fruitful and faithful love. We are not ashamed to believe these things.
On Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day, millions of Americans saw that they are not alone. We know we can say what we think in public.
More Christian businesses will refuse to be bullied by the Thought Police, and will instead stand up for marriage and family values. More people will show up to political rallies. More people will attend their school board meetings to find out what our children are really being taught. More people will get involved with their professional associations and steer their professions away from the shoals of political correctness. And yes, more people will get involved with the November elections.
The whole world is watching America. When our values go down the tubes, we take the rest of the world with us. If we can turn our country toward common sense and good morals, the rest of the world will benefit. But this will only happen if every person who ate a chicken sandwich on that historic Wednesday is emboldened, motivated and activated to move their own corner of the world in the right direction.
If all of us do our part, August 1, 2012, could well be the One Day That Changed the World.
Support Family Values,
Have a Chick-fil-A today.
Nice piece. Thanks for posting.
The Chicken Sandwich heard ‘round the world...
The day the people stood up, and said HELL NO!
The flaming gays went down in flames............
My office group now has made Wednesday our permanent Chick-Fil-A day.
We should remember...it’s hot homophobia...it is now homodisgust.
>> That could result in almost every state except the US Northeast and US West Coast supporting Obama in the Electoral College.
Strike that. Reverse it.
>>We know that men and women are different, not interchangeable.<<
vive la différence!
I wonder if Huckabee has given any thought to make this a monthly event. Chick-fil-a appreciation day the first of every month. Except when the first is on a Sunday make it the day before.
That could result in almost every state except the US Northeast and US West Coast supporting Obama in the Electoral College.Think what you want but the fact is, "same sex marriage" ballot issues have overwhelmingly lost everytime and everyway it's been tried in California.
On Chick-Fil-A day in Upland, CA, I started singing God Bless America. Since I can’t sing, I was thankful others joined in.
Weekly, and it’s NOM, not Huckleberry:
Chick-Fil-A: Just When You Thought The Battle Had Flamed Out
(CFA Wednesdays, gays not happy)
Someone please explain this to me. And where is Shep Smith’s name?
Homocon Party Will Invade Tampa RNC For All Those Gay Republicans
One would never have thought there were so many clear heads in Hollywood, CA.
I don’t think it should be a monthly “Appreciation” event. I think the homo nazis got the scare of their lives. For a long time they have been deluding themselves into thinking things were going their way. Everyone they knew believed as they do, and the media told them the majority believes the way do. So thinking they had the upper hand, they tried to flex their little bit of muscle.
Now that they know the truth, we don’t have to flaunt it. Like the TEA parties have no single leader, we don’t need Huckabee to speak for us. Besides, if we started having monthly or weekly or even yearly national “Appreciation Days,” the minute the response was not what the first one was, the gay mafia would become emboldened to think that our support is waning.
If we, as individuals and small groups, continue to go to Chick-Fil-A and support them— daily, weekly, or monthly, not only will we be helping a company that supports good causes, those homo nazis will never have any idea what our true numbers are, and they will be much more cautious about confrontations. They know they were fooled into a false security before; they won’t want that to happen again.
>>Homocon Party Will Invade Tampa RNC For All Those Gay Republicans<<
I wonder if gaytime Charlie Crist will make an appearance. That area was his hangout before he became famous. Oh wait, he’s an independent/democrat now.
I lost count on how many friends participated and I'm sure the behavior was self reinforcing by photos and stories.
Alas, I was at a location where the nearest Chick-Fil-A was 200 miles away.
But, yes that day something magical happened and it could have been better timed.
