The "Chicken" In The Blizzard


Two 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 buses 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 on 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.

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. Audrey Pitt, manager of the Chick-fil-A, 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.”

However, 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 refuse 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. Their liberal bias and intolerance would never allow them to report on a Christian company doing something so positive for so many.

We need to support this and other Christian companies that are trying to spread the Good News of the Gospel through their daily work.

Beautiful and inspiring story. However, this sentence cheapens its effect:"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?" Why do that? I heard about it that day. So many times you guys say certain things are never reported by the so-called Liberal Media that have been duly covered. Suggesting such a thing takes away from this wonderful gesture and makes it a political meme.

Don, to the left this is not good news and therefore not even worthy of an honorable mention. They can never destroy the remnant!

How do you take away the "gesture" that the militant homosexual left and their advocates persecuted Chick-fil-A trying to put them out of business? And then there is the Baker in Denver that eventually shut down that part of his business that made wedding cakes because of militant homosexual, transgender and State harassment. How do you figure you're able share equally in both sides of the grand gesture?

You've exposed the weakness of the Left with your predictable comment. You don't recognize the difference between Truth and hate. You're pumped full of hate 24/7 by the hate Trump media and the hate Trump Politicians and since you birds hate him too you honestly believe they speak truth. They don't and you don't! I don't hate the Left but I'm not fooled by them like you are.

You're right Don, hadn't heard a word about those fantastic people.

Thank you for relating their shining act of humanity.

I am sure that memories of that night will warm many hearts, for many years to come.

I am also sure that relationships were formed that night that will last a lifetime.

Don't GO out in that kind of weather, unless you're prepared to BE out in that kind of weather!

I disagree, rumatoid. I am a conservative blogger. I understand, personally and painfully, the leftist bias in the mainstream media and Silicon Valley. To suggest that there is no bias is naive. It is you who has done this story a disservice by denying what everyone else knows.

You may have heard about this story "that day," but it was likely from Fox News or the right-wing blogosphere. I heard nary a word of this from the Democrat Communications Division, aka the mainstream media.

The behavior of the owner and employees of Chick Fil A did what the knew God wanted them to do, and totally left the government out of the equation. THAT is why the progressives hate him and the organization and business he is responsible for so very much.
