In life we have the daily opportunity to profess who we are, what we are about and what we stand for. I happen to be typing this post on the day that has been deemed as “Chick-fil-A Day.” This is the day to support the traditional American Family values as professed by the Christian Faith.
Chick-fil-A recently came under fire for a statement that President Dan Cathy made to the Baptist Press about their organization’s support of the traditional family unit. Cathy was quoted saying this,
“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.” ~Dan Cathy
I’m not going to go into a lot of details, arguments or small talk on the subject… I will sum this up very succinctly. I was told this as a young man, “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.” Chick-fil-A is standing for something. This facebook page in support of Chick-fil-A shows hundreds of thousands are standing with them.
Unfortunately, we live in a day and age where people seem to be more focused on what and who they are against rather than what and who they are for. We must stop focusing on what we are against, and begin focusing on what we are for. We must Stand For Something!
Personally, I’m a huge fan of Chick-fil-A: their business model, commitment to excellence, leadership development and because they stand for something. The fact that their food is amazing is just a nice bonus. My family will eat Chick-fil-A today, tomorrow, next week, next year… probably until the cows come home. (pun intended)
Even, Mr. Hide Your Kids and Hide Your Wife Antoine Dodson stands with Chick-fil-A. Dodson was quoted as saying, ”
“If I want a Chick-fil-A sandwich I’m gonna have a Chick-fil-A sandwich… So you can run and tell that.”
