STUART, Fla. - Across the country today, Americans are flocking to Chick-fil-A restaurants in a national show of support for the eatery after the company's president publicly stated his support for the biblical definition of marriage between one man and one woman.
Packed!" said Colleen Shaler of Port St. Lucie, Fla., who had lunch at a crowded franchise in nearby Stuart, Fla.
The parking lot was overflowing and cars were wrapped around the building waiting to reach the drive-up window. There were extra attendants outside on foot taking people's orders before they even got near the window.
"Today's actually my 23rd anniversary," Shaler said. "I don't normally eat at Chick-fil-A, I just don't do a lot of fast food, but I definitely support their beliefs and what they're doing. I just felt today was the right day to come out and show my support."
Robin Minichino of Stuart was eating lunch with some friends from her Grace Place Church, and told WND, "I'm a Christian and I believe in the Christian values and this is just an awesome, amazing thing. I'm so proud to see so many people out here today supporting [Chick-fil-A]. The people in there are so accommodating. They're helping out. Even the patrons are so kind enough to share tables with other people because it's so packed in there, you can't find a seat."
Asked whether she was confident the restaurant chain would survive criticism from homosexual activists who are boycotting the company, Minichino said, "Oh, absolutely. God's got his hand in everything, so His plan is the best plan and He's got this all worked out already."
John Roetman of Hobe Sound, Fla., came to dine with his wife as well as his granddaughter, Katie Clement of Lancaster, Pa., and he noted, "We were here Monday for lunch, and we're back to support them because we stand for what they stand for, and that is believing in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior."
Clement added, "I think it's a very good cause because it's showing people about Jesus, and there are so many people [here today]!
Some 600,000 people had signed up to celebrate Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day today, which former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee created to counter a boycott launched by same-sex marriage activists last week after Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said he was "guilty as charged" for not supporting homosexual marriage.
"The goal is simple," Huckabee wrote on Facebook. "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."
ON a local note, my wife, Nancy and I, visited our Chick-fil-A located in Silver Spring township, along US 11-15 in Mechanicsburg, PA We entered the drive about 7:25 p.m. We elected to stay in the car and go through Drive-Through.
Cars were wrapped around the store and spread out to encompass several other stores. As we approached the store, we were met by a vivacious order-taker who radioed our order to the drive up window. By the time we got to the window, our food was ready. Another employee was in charge of traffic control, both pedestrian and motorized.
After a while, the store brought out cold drinks for pedestrians who had been waiting in the sun. We received our food around 8:30 p.m.
The Chick-fil-A staff were uniformly pleasant and efficient. The whole operation ran smoothly and the staff performed as though every day was rally day!
