social network for conservatives
Rick Warren's Twitter post (acquired from The Drudge Report) says it all,
@DanCathy just called me. #ChickFilA has already set a world record today, with 7 more hrs to go in the West. #OutOfChicken"
The left wing radicals threatened to boycott a business that simply chooses to live according to what God's law says, and it turned into the biggest financial day in the history of mankind for a single fast-food chain. It won't stop there. Many conservatives are now determined to show continued support to Chik-Fil-A. Not only that, the controversy has given occasion for other businesses that adhere to Christian principles to be mentioned as well. Billy Hallowell at TheBlaze.com, wrote an article featuring five other companies that publicly proclaim that they are businesses that operate according to Biblical principles: Forever 21, Interstate Battery, Tyson Foods, In-N-Out Burger and Hobby Lobby. These businesses will probably benefit from an increase in sales as well as conservatives are now more aware of what the owners of these enterprises stand for morally. The boycotts of these businesses by a group of people that are clearly in the minority, and clearly considered morally deficient by MOST Americans, will not come close to the blessings that will be bestowed upon them by the Lord. Americans responded to the call for "Chik-Fil-A Appreciation Day" as coined by former Governer Mike Huckabee with a massive social media response and actual response to make a statement, that

This movement of conservatism began on Thursday in Dallas with Restoring Freedom, continued on Friday with Under God Indivisible, and ended with Restoring Love on Saturday.

speeches, one day to please my fellow countrymen. Let this day be the first of many." Many patriots who were there have taken heed, and intend to stand up for the principles of the Lord, and for Freedom. Indeed it is no accident that this very night on Trinity Broadcast Network, Pastor Greg Laurie quoted the scripture from the book of Chronicles in the Seventh Chapter, Verse 14: If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Indeed, those who believe that the homosexual lifestyle is an acceptable way to live are indeed wicked and Godless. Chik-Fil-A has taken a stand, and now as Christians we must stand. For as Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, " Not to stand is to stand. Not to speak is to speak....."Will you stand idly by while our culture collapses, or join those who seek to restore it?" * Thankfully, yesterday most Christians did not stand idly by, but took action and supported the Godly stand taken by Mr. Dan Cathy, owner of Chik-Fil-A.
