The Power of Positive Protest
Today I decided to put my money where my mouth is – literally. I went to Chick-fil-A for lunch in my neighborhood. I try not to eat fast food too often but this is a good cause – supporting the owners of a franchise that has come under attack for its Christian principles. Last time I had a Chick-fil-A, my kids were in college.
It was hot and muggy, and, as we approached the restaurant, the traffic became congested on all six lanes, coming and going. The line of cars to the drive through was winding around two blocks. The adjacent strip mall parking lot, which is normally empty, was filled to capacity; people were walking towards the restaurant from all directions, converging like bees on a hive. The line of people was winding outside, spilling into the parking lot and the access road.
