Chick-fil-A Latest Decision Drives Liberals Up The Wall Again
There are a few things in life that are written in stone.
- The Ten Commandments
- A Campaign Promise from Donald Trump
- Chick-fil-A is never open on Sundays.
But yesterday one of those things was temporarily suspended.
After Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport lost power yesterday stranding thousands of persons in the terminal and on aircraft, employs of the world famous chicken franchise made the decision to go into action. The employees decided to prepare free meals for the thousands of passengers stranded at the airport thanks to a power failure.
Their decision came following a request from the mayor of Atlanta who called and requested assistance according to A Chick-fil-A spokeswoman. Having the worlds busiest airport closed for hours full of stranded passengers is one thing, but for that to include not having any power for vending machines or restaurants to prepare food is a virtual disaster.
In response, Chick-fil-A broke one of its core rules and came to the public’s rescue. Over 1000 flights were grounded stranding tens of thousands of people within the airports confines. As the hours drug on, the city turned to Chick-fil-A to help craft a solution. Atlanta’s mayor, Kasim Reed, called the fast-food chain at about 10 p.m. and asked for their assistance, a company spokeswoman, Amanda Hannah, told Business Insider in an email.
Chick-fil-A has gotten a lot of heat from those on the left over the years because of it’s founders policies on Gays, Abortion and not being open on Sundays. They have often said that the founders religious beliefs have no place in the businesses policies. But on this Sunday, Chick-fil-A employees “immediately mobilized,” Hannah said, making sandwiches and delivering them to an emergency operations center to be distributed to stranded passengers.
In a statement, Hannah said: “It has been a very difficult day for thousands of travelers. And while Chick-fil-A is always closed on Sunday, our restaurants open occasionally to serve communities in need. We do not make a profit but do what we can to offer comfort to people experiencing hardship.”
The stranded passengers immediately celebrated the chicken chain’s break from tradition. Michael Schlact tweeted: “Thousands stranded in Atlanta on a Sunday evening because of the massive power failure at the airport. But ChickfilA, normally not open on Sunday’s, springs into action to feed them all. That’s incredible. What a company.”
And Josh Jordan said: “Chick-fil-A isn’t even open on Sunday’s and yet they immediately jumped in to help stranded passengers in Atlanta- and that’s far from the first time Chick-fil-A has rushed to help in a crisis. They are in a league of their own.”
Even Democrat mayor Kasim Reed said: “Passengers stuck at Atlanta airport are being provided Chick-fil-A meals… on a Sunday. Chick-Fil-A is sent from heaven…”
Sources at Georgia Power said that power was eventually restored at the airport a few minutes after midnight. During the event, more than 5,000 meals were delivered to the hungry passengers thanks to the company and employees of Chick-fil-A.
