Chick Fil A Did WHAT After Gay Club Shooting?
Chick Fil A has made national news for its owner’s stance on gay marriage. Anytime they do something even remotely non-PC, their supposed slip up goes viral. Hash tags pop up all over the place.
So why is that what they have done in the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting, hasn’t received a single mention on the mainstream news channels?
It’s probably because people like New York City Mayor, Bill DeBlasio, might have to eat crow instead of chicken. DeBlasio has said that Chick Fil A spreads a message of hate.
Not so yesterday. In a shocking move the Orlando location, at University and Rouse Road, fired up its grills on Sunday. The chain is notorious for not being open—ever—on the first day of the week. Employees cooked up hundreds of their famous chicken sandwiches. They brewed dozens of gallons of sweet tea.
Then, instead of making a single dime, they crated the product of their labor to the One Blood donation center. The food and drinks were handed out, free of charge, to all the people who had lined up to donate blood.
So far, the only mention of the incident has been from individuals on Facebook. They have posted photos thanking the restaurant for their thoughtfulness and generosity.
But wait, those people were waiting to give blood to victims that were mostly gay. Doesn’t Chick Fil A hate gays? That’s what we keep being told.
Turns out that while the founders definitely don’t approve of the gay lifestyle, they believe in compassion. Who knew? A bunch of people claiming to be Christians, caring about others even when they don’t agree with them. These employees took time out of their personal schedules, volunteering to feed those who were donating blood, that was desperately needed by the hospital to treat the severely injured survivors.
On top of that, the franchise located on Wells Road in Orange Park is even offering coupons for a free frosted lemonade. The coupon will be available to anyone who donates blood on June 14, 2016 while the One Blood mobile unit is at their location.
So much for “Chick Fil hAte” becoming a thing.
