Patrons Flock to St Joseph Chick-fil-A to Show Support
Hundreds turned out in St Joseph Wednesday to show their support of Chick-fil-A.
The day was proclaimed “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” by former Arkansas Gov. and talk show host Mike Huckabee.
A line of cars over the lunch hour Wednesday backed-up into the street as hundred waited in line to support the company after others criticized it’s President for his remarks about gay marriage last month. Many patrons waited about 20 minutes before they could get their meal.
Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy last month said the Atlanta-based company was “guilty as charged” for backing “the biblical definition of a family.
Those in St Joseph today said they came out to support his opinion and to support his right to announce his opinion.
“I came out just to show my support for something that is America.” One patron said. “this is what we are, we are free people. I spent 22 years in the military defending the constitiun of the United States and this is one of our rights.”
“I came to support the owner, the corporate president and his stand on one man, one woman marriage,” one woman said.
“And i wish more companies would follow Chick-fil-A’s standards on business such as being closed on Sundays and allowing their people to go to church and things like that,” said one patron.
Opponents of the company’s stance are planning “Kiss Mor Chiks” for Friday, when they are encouraging people of the same sex to show up at Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country and kiss each other.
