Heart Warming Truth You Won't Hear On The News  

You can read this here or at the site I copied it from here, but I do hope you read it.  We all need the truth.
 
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 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.

Audrey Pitt, manager of the Chick-fil-A described the
conditions:

Our store is about a mile and a half from the interstate and it took me
two hours to get there. It was a parking lot as far as I could see. At one
point there were more people walking than driving.รข€

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. Pitt 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 refusing 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. Had it been a group of homosexuals or
atheists, it would have been all over the news from coast to coast. It was
too much against their liberal standards to report a Christian company
doing something so positive for so many.

If you live in the Birmingham area, make sure you stop in and visit the
Chick-fil-A near Highway 280 to thank them for their generosity and
Christian example. While you're there, order something to eat and give
them your business as I think they deserve it.
