"The goal is simple: Let's affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick Fil-A on Wednesday, August 1. Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we're considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant. This effort is not being launched by the Chick Fil-A company and no one from the company or family is involved in proposing or promoting it."
The invite is on Facebook. At about 11:30 a.m. CST, about 38,000 are "going."
Just think: If he would have been president, we probably could have all gotten a box of nuggets with a side wrath and judgment for free (Presidents can do that, right?).
