Freedom Sure Tastes Like Chicken!

* **Post Edited*** I had to go back and add this on. A friend of mine just emailed me this story of his Chick-fil-A experience. So neat!!

"I went to Chick-Fil-A yesterday to get dinner for everyone. I went to the one in Peoria at 83rd Ave & Bell Rd. It was PACKED! I waited in the drive-thru line for an hour and a half! It was so neat to see the support! The police were out directing traffic and patrolling the lines. It probably wasn't necessary for them to patrol the lines since everyone seemed happy and friendly! When I had finally made it to the drive-thru window, the worker informed me that the person in front me had paid for our entire order! I was like, "Wow! Thank you Lord!" The drive-thru line was backed up down 83rd Ave and the line for inside was wrapped all through out the parking lot. It was so cool to see everyone have fun waiting in line and not complain. It's crazy to think that they would run out of food! But it's a good thing!"

Did you have your Chick-fil-A today??? We sure did!!

Ever since the owner of Chick-fil-A stated that the company supported traditional marriage, gays and leftists everywhere have gone crazy! But so have the Christians :)

If you are on Facebook, go check out the page "Reclaim America" by Kimber Chitwood. He has been asking people all day to send him pictures and stories of their experience at Chick-fil-A today, and it has been amazing!!!

People all over the country have waited in line for hours today to show their support for Chick-fil-A!!

In Florence, Alabama, there's two Chick-fil-A's. Both had to close down half way through today because they ran out of food!! Stay hungry, people!

My dad tried to go at lunch to one out by his work, but the place was jam packed with cars, the line was out the door, and he only had an hour, so he decided to leave and try again on his way home. This evening, he stopped at one in Surprise, and when he pulled up, there were a couple protestors, but it was pretty empty. “Hmm,” he thought, “that’s strange.” Just then, a young man dressed in a Chick-fil-A shirt walked up to his car and said, “I am very very sorry, sir, but due to customer support...um...we’ve run out of food.” Dad threw his hands up and said, “Praise the Lord!” The kid gave him a coupon and told him to come again :)

This is way past being an issue over homosexuality. This is now an issue of free speech.

 One of the neatest things has been that in all these masses of people, traffic jams, policemen directing traffic, stores closing, the people have been so polite. One person put it really well: "Columbia, TN. Traffic backed up for miles.... 3 police officers directing traffic.... 2 lines feeding into one drive through line... waited 90 min. once standing in line... NO fighting, cussing, protesters... Just people supporting the Constitution.... Peacefully!!!"

Here's what some of the people have been saying......

Alcoa TN: People were wrapped around the building and both drive-thru lanes were packed. Traffics was backed up in both directions. So glad to see the support!

Elkton, MD Chick-fil-A. The lines were out the door and a LONG line for the drive-thru. The employees said it was like this all day. While we were eating, we saw a MD State Trooper going through the drive thru picking up dinner.

There is hope fore America yet. Not "Hope and Change" but real HOPE that this great nation was founded on!

Florence Alabama has two Chick-fil-a locations,both had to close today because they ran out of food!

Phoenix Arizona Chick-Fil-A, I waited 2.5 hours to support... great sandwich! WAIT TILL NOVEMBER..... WE'RE COMING !

Our troops do not fight and die for socialism. Stand up for FREEDOM and stay hungry til November!

Mechanicsburg, PA: Unreal! Hundreds of cars people all over the parking lot. 4 news vans and 3 cop cars! It's a beautiful site!

Phoenix, AZ: Went with the kiddos to support Chick-fil-a today. You can't tell too good from the picture but the line of people were wrapped around the outside of the building and cars lined up out to the main street. It warms my heart that so many people are standing up with this great company for God's Word :) :)

Olive Branch, MS location. We waited until about 1:30 to go and it was still packed. What was amazing was that there was no cussing, fighting, shoving, cutting in line or disgruntled people because their order was wrong. THIS, is the America that I love.

I'll leave you with this!!


  1. It was almost 2 when we got there, and there was a line of people wrapped around the building, not to mention the cars! Everyone in the line was so nice and patient. The couple in front of us said that they really didn't care for chicken, and had never actually been in a Chick-fil-a before, but they had come today to support them! When we were ordering our food, we were kinda limited because they had started to run out. It was awesome!
    Praise the Lord and pass the chicken! ;)

    1. Pass the *fried* Chicken. Gotta get that right Sadie - you are in the south after all...... :D

  2. I wish we had Chick-fil-a in Canada but we don't because I would support them.
    God bless,

  3. Hey, that's a pretty neat deal on the Jessie shot with the lettering. Did you just make a separate cut of all the red stuff, up the color concentration, and B/W the rest?

  4. Sadie...that is so neat!! It has been amazing to watch people all over America come together like this!! I have a friend who went there for dinner last night, and waited an hour and a half in the drive-thru. When he got to the window, the people in front of him had paid for his whole order!! So neat!!

    Rebekah...wow. I didn't even think of that! You can support them vicariously through us :)

    David...It's my awesome Lightroom :) I can go in and mess with each color individually, so I just un-saturated every color except for reds, and super-saturated the reds. Turned out pretty groovy!!

  5. We don't have one anywhere near us, else we'd have gone too lol. I say good job to them.

    1. Sure thing!! Hey, it's great to hear from you, Flame!!

  6. That's awesome! I'm glad you guys got to go! Unfortunately, CFA hasn't made it up this far north yet. :(
    I think that the lefts 'kiss in' counter protest was one of the most humorous parts of this whole ordeal. When compared to the MASSES of people who turned out in support of free speech (not homophobia as the mainstream media is trying to spin it, if they cover it at all), there was like .00002 homosexuals protesting.
