Media Ignores Chick-fil-A's Christian Charity in Ice Storm

JT For Political Reform 2014/02/08 00:07:57

years ago Chick-fil-A made national headlines when company president
Dan Cathy spoke out in support of traditional marriage. Liberals and
gays came unglued and launched massive protests against the restaurant chain. Several mayors
spoke out saying they would not allow any more Chick-fil-As to be built
in their cities. They tried boycotting the Christian owned company,
but that backfired. Instead, Chick-fil-A had a world record day with many locations selling out of food to the hundreds of thousands of supporters.

Is it any surprise that the only news the liberal mainstream media
has reported concerning Chick-fil-A has only been the negative?

Remember last week when the ice storm hit the south? The mainstream
media showed footage of miles of cars stranded on the frozen
interstates. Several national news broadcasts that I saw reported about
school kids trapped on busses for almost 24 hours because of all of the
ice and parents going frantic wondering where their kids were.

In all of the icy gloom and doom, I bet you didn’t hear about the heroic and generous actions of a Chick-fil-A along Highway 280 in Birmingham, Alabama, did you?

Mark Meadows,
owner of the Chick-fil-A closed early the day of the storm and sent all
of his employees home. However, the employees and Meadows soon
discovered that they were not going to be able to get home with all of
the stranded motorists stuck on the roads. Some of the cars near the
restaurant had been stranded for up to 7 hours.

Audrey Pitt, manager of the Chick-fil-A described the conditions:

“Our store is about a mile and a half from the interstate
and it took me two hours to get there. It was a parking lot as far as I
could see. At one point there were more people walking than driving.”

Meadows and his employees fired up the kitchen and began preparing
chicken sandwiches as fast as they could. They prepared several hundred
sandwiches and then Meadows and his staff headed out and began
distributing the hot meals to the stranded motorists on both sides of
Highway 280.

Some of the drivers tried to pay them for the sandwiches, but Meadows
and his employees refused to take a single penny. Pitt explained why:

“This company is based on taking care of people and
loving people before you’re worried about money or profit. We were just
trying to follow the model that we’ve all worked under for so long and
the model that we’ve come to love. There was really nothing else we
could have done but try to help people any way we could.”

Meadows and Pitt were not through with their Good Samaritan efforts.
They helped push cars off the roads, up inclines and whatever else they
could do to help. Then they kept the restaurant open overnight so that
stranded motorists could have a warm place to be. A number of motorists
slept in booths or on the benches.

Then in the morning, they again fired up the kitchen and prepared
chicken biscuits for their overnight guests and once again they refused
to accept any payment. During that 24 hour period, this Chick-fil-A
restaurant opened their kitchen, their doors and their hearts to
hundreds of stranded motorists and they did so refusing to accept any
payment. As one source put it, Meadows and his staff lived up to the
words Jesus spoke in Matthew 25:35 which states:

“For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I
was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and
you invited Me in…”

Their actions were truly generous and heroic as they also braved the
frigid temperatures to hand out hundreds of hot meals to complete
strangers. And I bet you never heard anything about this from the
mainstream media. Had it been a group of homosexuals or atheists, it
would have been all over the news from coast to coast. It was too much
against their liberal standards to report a Christian company doing
something so positive for so many.

If you live in the Birmingham area, make sure you stop in and visit
the Chick-fil-A near Highway 280 to thank them for their generosity and
Christian example. While you’re there, order something to eat and give
them your business as I think they deserve it.

    Doesn't mesh with the LSM's contention that if you don't support homosexuality you're the very spawn of Satan.

    No surprise the media didn't cover it - doesn't fit their agenda.

    Of course it doesn't fit the image they try to portray for the company.

    That's what good neighbors, good people, good Christians and good companies do, help people in need. But not one word from the liberal press. I bet if the owner said what previously attracted their attention they would have been all over it. How sick.
