The Mean Bad Christians at Chick Fil-A did WHAT?

Chick Fil-A, a Christian restaurant chain,  has been under condemnation from LGBT groups for years. LGBT groups have filed lawsuits, cities have boycotted them, the pressure to shut down is enormous. So when the restaurant chain’s employees went to work on Monday to make food for people who were donating blood to the LGBT victims in Orlando, it created quite a stir.

Change it up to help others

According to USA Today, for 70 years, Chick Fil-A has had a policy of being closed on Sunday. But when an Islamic terrorist killed 49 gays and wounded 53 others, they made an exception. The restaurant about 20 minutes from the Pulse nightclub stepped up to the plate. They provided free food for first responders and those who stood in line to donate blood.

Chick Fil-A issued this statement:

“The events in Orlando stirred our local restaurant owners and their teams to band together to provide nourishment to first responders as well as volunteers who donated blood. We do not think this requires any recognition. It is the least we can do in this community we love.” Company spokeswoman Carrie Kurlander

The workers at the restaurant distributed sandwiches and tea to police and those who waited in line to give blood.

The owner’s Christian faith – always in controversy.

The chain’s owner, S. Truett Cathy, openly spoke out against gay marriage, which created nonstop firestorms. Cities told them not to come there. By 2012, they had been sued 19 times for discrimination. It has been a constant battleground for the Christian chain.

Moving on

Chick Fil-A did a good thing for the people of Orlando. Let’s thank them and continue to #PrayForOrlando.
