Liberals have dubbed it “hate chicken” for its CEO’s public opposition to same-sex marriage. But, once again, Chick-fil-A is proving its haters wrong with an extraordinary act of kindness. And this remarkable story is going crazy viral.
Via Fox 5 Atlanta:
A Tennessee man and his daughter stopped by a Chick-fil-A and witnessed an incredible act of kindness.
Joey Mustain took his daughter, Stella, to the fast-food chain on Monday and after they finished eating, his daughter traded in her toy for an ice-cream cone. They sat in a booth as Stella ate her dessert and witnessed what Mustain is calling a “beautiful scene.”
“A homeless traveler had walked in and asked if they had any extra food. Mud was wet and caked on his well-traveled shoes. His hair was matted, and his beard wasn’t a statement as much as it was a necessity and a sign that he doesn’t get to shave as often as most of us do,” Mustain said.The father said people near him kept their distance, but that didn’t stop the homeless man from being kind. “He spoke to people who reluctantly spoke back, and he smiled while he waited on a manager.”
The manager told the stranger he’d love to give him a full, warm meal but had one requirement. The manager said he had to let him pray with him.
“After the homeless man agreed, there was no waiting for things to die down, there was no scooting anyone to the side. As busy as they were, the manager stopped then and there, laid his hand on the man, and proceeded to pray. I heard love in that prayer. The homeless man wasn’t some untouchable stain on business. He was the reason that store opened its doors this morning (or any morning).”
Mustain said he asked Stella to watch them pray and she asked her dad what was happening. The dad told his daughter and then Stella bowed her head too.
Kinda puts liberals’ “hate chicken” moniker to shame, doesn’t it? In fact, while many liberals like to preach compassion and care for the less fortunate, how many of them actually practice it? By, for example, giving to charity?
How many of them come even close to what this Chick-fil-A manager did?
While the news these days is rarely upbeat, it’s refreshing to be reminded that human kindness still shines brightly. And you can even get waffle fries with it at Chick-fil-A.
