Chick-fil-A provides free meals to Aurora police working shooting case

In the wake of this morning’s tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado, Chick-fil-A is feeding the tireless police officers working the case. Breitbart.com’s Lee Stranahan learned of the fast food chain’s outreach earlier today via police radio:

The notice went out over the police radio at 4:45am Mountain Time that the restaurant had opened its doors to police and emergency workers to get a meal and use the facilities. Some double checked to see if the the restaurant was offering free food and that was confirmed.

A handful of vile Twitterers refused to put politics aside in the tragedy’s aftermath and seized the opportunity to condemn Chick-fil-A for its vocal support of traditional marriage:

Fortunately, most people had their priorities straight and rightly praised Chick-fil-A for its generosity:

Good on Chick-fil-A. Doing the right thing transcends politics.

    It’s not the delicious, perfectly fried chicken, served in the cleanest fast food chain on the planet that Leftists hate. It’s the Christianity, with its expectations of decency, morality, love of neighbor, and personal accountability. I only need to know what you hate to know your soul.

    • Rick Hall

      love of neighbor?! That’s a joke!

  • twolaneflash

    Oldest daughter started working at Truett Cathy’s Dwarf House at 14 y.o., worked through high school, and went to a college endowed by Mr. Cathy, where Chick-fil-A is served on campus. No finer people on earth. God bless ’em all.

      Unless you’re gay. Then they think you’re going to Hell. Oh, they’ll still take your money. And they may give to a charity you might wind up using if you’re destitute. But they still think you’re going to Hell and they’re willing to spend money to make sure your baing able to get married is never considered a constitutional right.

      • matt

        They are entitled to their opinion, just as you are. Deal with it.

        • slappymagoo

          I don’t think it’s particularly soapbox-y to point out that odd dichotomy. I know some of CFA’s profits go to some admirable things. But if you’re a gay person in a longterm relationship and all you want to do is be able to build a legal life with that person, grow old, share property, visit them in the hospital if they’re dying, and someone else is willing to spend vast amounts of money to prevent that from ever happening, essentially using their money to build THEIR soapbox, really high and with a THX sound system so they can shout “NO, I THINK YOU’RE DAMNED AND HERE”S WHY,” that’s gonna sting a skosch.

            They could do all of those things with civil unions. This isn’t about hating anyone. People have somehow decided this is an equality issue, when the truth of the matter is marriage is what it is: it is a union between a man and a woman. Everyone can get married. People have a wide range of sexual proclivities. Should we pander to all of them? Where does it stop? Would calling two men a marriage or two women a marriage finally = “marriage equality” in everyone’s mind? NO. Ask those awesome folks at NAMBLA. Ask the people who believe in plural marriage. All of that aside. If you don’t want to eat at Chick-Fil-A, then don’t. It’s still America.

      Yes. This offer of a free sandwich, like Jesus Christ’s offer of free and eternal salvation, was good if you were gay policeman. We’ll all know about the afterlife soon enough. Eat mor chikin, and bless the hands that prepared it!

  • stuckinIL4now

    Nice gesture, Chik-fil-A.

  • Tree Rat

    It shows what a selfish society we live in, when a company quietly tries to do a kind thing for its community servants, and the selfish stand by screaming there is an ulterior motive. Grow up ! Any one of those deaths last night could have been any one of us! Any one of you ! Appreciate your life. And take time to appreciate the kindness of others. Stop searching for their motive, because their motive was kindness and gratefulness to those who have the horrific job of working through the details of a tragedy ! The horrendous attitudes of people over a kindness being rendered are almost as bad as the tragedy itself.

  • Harvey

    @ Max Graham – What have they done so wrong? Run their company with Christian values? What is so wrong with that?

    • slappymagoo

      They give a lot of money to lobby politicians to try to block any attempts to find legalize gay marriage. Whether you define that as Christian in the true sense of the word or not, I don’t know. Seems hateful to me. Such is the duality of man – as a company, they do some wonderful things with their profits, but also some things that are hurtful and hateful to a group that wants their love considered legal – not necessarily valid in a Christian church, just legal.

        When in all of human history has homosexual marriage been normal? or even existed?

          http://books.google.com/books/about/Same_sex_unions_in_premodern_Europe.html?id=iRL9cXA1m1IC
          “Both highly praised and intensely controversial, this brilliant book
          produces dramatic evidence that at one time the Catholic and Eastern
          Orthodox churches not only sanctioned unions between partners of the
          same sex, but sanctified them–in ceremonies strikingly similar to
          heterosexual marriage ceremonies.”

          http://books.google.com/books?id=v-MR5_AdG68C&printsec=frontcover&dq=inauthor:%22John+Boswell%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=NLsJUJ2CC6a90AGc49zSAw&ved=0CDMQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false
          The historical breadth of Boswell’s research (from the Greeks to Aquinas) and the variety of sources consulted make this one of the most extensive treatments of any single aspect of Western social history. Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality, still fiercely relevant today, helped form the disciplines of gay and gender studies, and it continues to illuminate the origins and operations of intolerance as a social force. “What makes this work so exciting is not simply its contentfascinating though that isbut its revolutionary challenge to some of Western culture’s most familiar moral assumptions.”Jean Strouse, Newsweek

          Both books written by John Boswell, a historian and a professor from Yale…which of course means he is not to be trusted.

          And while I am comfortable with the notion of gay marriage, I think it important to point out, for the sake of consistency, the point I was trying to make was not whether or not gay marriage is “normal” but that some people want it to be “legal.” Legalizing things usually normalizes them too, but I didn’t write about “normal” just “legal”

          • melle1228

            Failed Attempt to Rewrite History
            If Byzantine marriage is com­pared with the rite for adel­phopoiesis
            (what Boswell calls “same-sex union”), several differ­ences are apparent. The
            first is that marriage occurs through a pro­cess, not a single rite. The most
            immediate reason for this appears to be that marital unity in Byzan­tine society
            involved both the spouses and their families, rather than simply individuals.
            The con­sent of the families was required at almost every stage of marriage
            for­mation. This is not to say that con­sent of the spouses was not re­quired.
            The civil ceremony was the vehicle where matrimonial con­sent was manifested.
            This consent was also implied by the couple’s mutual participation in the rites
            of betrothal and crowning, where the sacerdotal blessing established the union,
            and the priest was regarded as the minister of the Sacrament. In contrast,
            adelphopoiesis was not established by a process of gradual union between
            spouses and families, but rather was a union of two individuals. The re­sulting
            family kinships and marriage impediments were limited. Boswell cites the
            11th-century ju­rist Eustathios Rhomaios, as stating: “same-sex unions are of
            per­sons, and they [the persons joined through the unions] alone incur
            impediments to marriage, but not the other members of their fami­lies.” If
            “same-sex unions” were a form of matrimony, why would marriage impediments be an
            issue for those already united? It doesn’t make sense. Even if it were allowed
            that such impediments were appli­cable when “same-sex unions” dissolved, such
            limited kinships and impediments are completely in­consistent with marriage as
            practiced within the context of late Byzantine society. Moreover, there appear
            to be no provisions in the Church, where Boswell claims ho­mosexual marriages
            were blessed, for grounds of divorce. Certainly, if two men were married by the
            Church, would not there have been provisions for their separa­tion, as was the
            case for all other forms of matrimony?
            Writing the history of a reli­gious institution involves under­standing concepts and language within their historical and cultural context. Otherwise, the risk is taken that history will be rewritten to suit current preoccupations. Boswell’s attempt to prove that the Byzantines regarded adelphopoie­sis as a form of marriage fails be­cause his research presents histori­cal facts and events out of context. From Boswell’s viewpoint, it would appear that matrimony is being cel­ebrated when two individuals are united by a priestly blessing in a ser­vice using symbols held in com­mon with marriage ceremonies. However, Byzantine marriage was celebrated as a process that united families as well as spouses in a se­ries of rituals, not in one rite that mainly affected its participants. Simply put, adelphopoiesis was certainly a kind of union between two individuals, but to make this institution equivalent to matri­mony necessitates a perspective and context foreign to the late Byz­antine Church

          • slappymagoo

            Great, so we can both agree there’s room for improvement.

          • melle1228

            No I don’t agree with your room from improvement. Part of being free is being able to disagree with other people and have your own standards. Someone wants to be gay-fine be gay.. But don’t become the thought police if someone doesn’t agree with your lifestyle. When you identify yourself by who you have sex with then some people are going to have a problem with that. It is that way for any sexual orientation or fetish.

            Ralph Waldo Emerson – “What you are shouts so loudly in my ears I cannot hear what you say.”

          • Rick Hall

            Straight people have always identified themselves by whom they sex with (big weddings, big divorces, etc). But I don’t have a problem with that. I just want to have the same right myself as a gay man and as an American citizen.

          • TJCrane_NCC1701

            While not gay myself, I don’t have the right to marry another man either. YOU are asking for special rights.

          • Rick Hall

            I’m asking for the right to marry the person that I love and want to spend my life with. No more a special right than a straight couple has. Why is that so hard to understand? If gay marriage were legal then you could marry a man if that is the person you loved.

          • TJCrane_NCC1701

            No you don’t. You want acceptance for your “alternate” lifestyle because you can get all the legal rights as a spouse if you hired a lawyer instead of a minister. You want your ego’s stroked (among other things 😉
            I really could care less who you’re in love with because I have my own life to live. But truly, people who’s sole identities revolve around who they have sex with and having to tell other people about it and DEMAND it’s acceptance is more than a bit perverse if you really, honestly, think about it.
            Over & out

          • Rick Hall

            If you have your own life to live then please stay out of mine. No lawyer can set up all the rights that you get automatically. And why should I have to pay thousands and thousands of dollars for what you get for free. That’s not what anyone would call equal. And it’s not a lifestyle, it’s my life.

          • melle1228

            That is the fault in your logic. Marriage is a state regulated institution. It is not a natural right. You have to pay thousands and thousands of dollars because your “love’ doesn’t fall under state regs just like incestuous and polygamous relationship.

          • Rick Hall

            That is the whole point of fighting for marriage equality. Marriage IS a state regulated institution in six U.S. states and Washington, D. C. already.

            So move to D.C,problem solved.

          • Rick Hall

            I want all people in America to have equal rights. That would be selfish if I moved to D.C. just so I could get married and forget about everyone else. So no, I am not going to move to D.C, Problem not solved. Thank you thought for your simplistic “solution.”

          • TJCrane_NCC1701

            Rick, I’m trying to stay out of your life The problem is that you keep telling me about it and keep demanding that I praise your particular sexual deviancy (was trying to be nice with “lifestyle” but you persist…) that encompasses your whole being.
            I hope some day that you find out that there’s more to life than having sex.
            Forget religion, Darwin called it “unnatural”. I’ve been accused of being anti-science, funny.
            BTW, any sources for “not all the rights” and “thousands and THOUSANDS” of dollars to back your claim up ?
            I ONLY see “marriage” as the issue to FORCE people to accept it.
            Unreal that you’re still pushing the BS.

          • Rick Hall

            Again, I have never talked about having sex. I have always known there in more to life than “having sex.” I run my own business and am in school finishing up a graduate degree. Also, Freud among other professional dignitaries
            signed a statement, in 1930, which called for the repeal of the law penalizing
            homosexual relations between “consenting adult males.” So obviously, he noticed that homosexuality is a part of the human experience. I thought that you people who follow the bible don’t believe in Darwin and his theory of evolution. More cherry picking?

          • melle1228

            Really- all straight people can marry the ones they love. Incestuous relationships, polygamous relationships?

          • Rick Hall

            Oh please. That is such a tired “argument.” We are talking about consenting adults. I don’t know anyone who is married that is in an incestuous or polygamous relationship. Do you?

          • melle1228

            No apparently not everyone who has a man/woman marriage is straight. Does JIm McGreevy ring a bell. Just because you are married doesn’t mean your are straight-it just means you married within the state regulations currently available..

          • Rick Hall

            That marriage didn’t work out very well did it.I (and most gay people) don’t want to live a lie by marrying someone that they aren’t naturally attracted to.It would probably blow up like Jim McGreevy’s marriage did.

          True, humans are a part of nature and you dont see gay couples in nature. Only us screwed up humans!

      • melle1228

        I am against incestuous marriage- doesn’t mean I hate brothers and sisters. I am against polygamous marriage- that doesn’t mean I hate people who love more than one person. I am against no-fault divorce as well and it doesn’t mean I hate those who get divorced. Hate is a buzzword used to shut opposition up. It isn’t freedom and it certainly isn’t tolerant.

        • slappymagoo

          Funny, I don’t see a lot of brothers and sisters looking to get married,

          Polygamy carries a different set of problems from a legal standpoint because let’s face it, once you take religious institutions out of the deal, marriages are legal unions. Add more people to the mix, it’s hard to determine who gets what when if/when the union ends, unless the marriage somehow started as a polygamous union from the get-go.

          2 men or 2 women love each other, want to make it legal, share property, have children, create a life together for as long as they live? No sweat off my sac. And I question people who feel the need to make it a crusade.

          • melle1228

            Hilarious– Funny how you are judgemental about polygamous relationship using your OWN standards. BTW, if you take away the state’s right to regulate marriage under the guise that EVERYONE has right to marry who they love then you cannot Constitutionally take away that right from polygamous unions. And two gay people can share property via private contracts (they can’t have children together.. but i suspect you know that.. ).
            And I am highly suspicious of those that feel the need to crusade for gay people who aren’t gay- so we are even.

          • John Campanella

            Who are these angels that are going to regulate the personal lives of adults?

            Government should stay out of marriage altogether, there is no morality in using government guns to control mutual consenting adults from behavior that produces no victims.

            You can be against gay marriage, but using other people’s money to control people. If you were to perform these actions, you’d be committing a crime. But if you get government to do it, well, it’s all moral and right.

            We all need to drop the gay marriage conversation, it’s a personal matter.

          • Vicki

            You are the one making it a crusade. Get your goverment to recognize a civil union between gay couples and get the benefits that you keep screaming about them being denied. But face it, marriage is religious in nature. It isnt right that you jackasses want the churches to accept gay marriage. Go for your civil unions and quit trying to change other peoples beliefs. For one it isnt gonna happen, for two its a free country and we have a right to belive what we want. Quit bashing good people just because they wont “conform” to your opinion. Go live in a socialist society, they love telling people what they can think and do!

            What “I thought you said” is exactly what you said. Christians are mean because they don’t PRAISE sodomy, and YOU “hate” them for not accepting it. Pretty simple.
            I have absolutely no control on who you love. I love my grandma, mom, dad, sister, son, daughter, etc and nobody could ever stop me (I don’t love my ex…).
            You want me to accept and praise something that is unnatural according to EVEN Darwin himself (aren’t lefties always accusing us “hick-type” people of being anti-science ?).
            Do whatever you want.

          • http://twitter.com/keconrad21 Katie Conrad

            Obama is not waging a war on women… It’s actually LEFTY propaganda… If you pay any attention, you would know that the Obama campaign is accusing the Republicans of waging a war on women.
            Anyway, I think marriage should not be regulated by the state at all. There should be simple rights that both straight and gay couples can receive under a civil union. Other than that, “marriage” should remain purely personal because that’s what it is.
            I, in no way, hate gays. I have many gay friends who I like very much (when not discussing politics), but I will say that I hate when they talk about sexual things. My one friend who recently came out as gay was telling me how “yummy” dicks are. I found it quite uncomfortable to hear, and I had to tell him to stop talking for a little while!

          • Rick Hall

            I agree. I don’t like to hear anyone talking about sexual things,gay or straight. Some of the worst offenders are straight men when they talk of their “conquests.”

            @facebook-100000139441057:disqus Personally, I don’t care if gays can marry or not…I don’t have a horse in that race. Having said that, maybe you should just be happy having someone in your life. There are many of us who are “allowed” to marry but are alone. Also, marriage is not free and certainly divorce isn’t. By the time my alimony is paid the cost of my marriage (divorce) is well over 100k.

            Also, if a rich guy want to donate his money to a cause that is his right. You have the same right. You also have to right not to patronize his business.
            Good luck to you,my friend, and just be happy with what you do have.

          • Rick Hall

            Look in the mirror Vicki, if you dare, It’s not the fact that Cathy doesn’t agree with gay marriage. It’s the issue of his donating millions of dollars to organizations who actively fight against gay rights.Money that he receives from every customer that eats in his restaurants. That is why I don’t spend my money there. I don’t believe in supporting discrimination against anyone. So, it’s not really hate so much as it is self-preservation.

    No “H8” bigots incapable of giving credit where it is due. Gay marriage to them is more important than 13 lives lost, 60 injured. No H8’rs don’t even stand up for homosexuals executed in the middle east just for being gay, because they’re too busy having tantrums about the most important thing in the world, gay marriage.

    You know – If I am going to eat out, I will now go out of my way to go to a Chick-fil-a! I support their stand on traditional marriage, which is simply their way of life. Kudos to them!

    Look, I’m by no means even remotely Christian. Been a heathen most of my life and not changing anytime soon. What this company did for folks trying to protect and serve is a damn decent thing. This owner doesn’t hide his thoughts about stuff and brings his beliefs to his business. Closed on Sunday so folks can be with their families or do whatever churchy thing that floats their boat. I could care who loves who or marries whoever. You asked his a question and he answered it honestly. That a hell of a quality and rare in anyone in the public eye.

    @ Lee Stranahan…
    Ben & Jerry’s is an American ice cream company, a division of the British-Dutch Unilever conglomerate… Are you saying they are a “Leftist” organization??? I think you should check your facts!!

      Both Ben and Jerry went to the same high school as me – a small town school. Btoh were known all their lives as radical leftists, and their company follows that line today. They have supported cop killers and other malcontents as well. Ben & Jerrys leftists? To be sure. Just ask them.

    I guess everyone will feel better if they change their name to Dick-fill-ya? Or Chick-lick-ya?

    Who I give credit to is the particular O&O of this Chik-Fil-A franchise. If the owner of any other fast food franchise did the same thing, I’d say good for that person, not necessarily the entire chain.

    So we have an article about a business trying to do nice for first responders, and of course it gets highjacked by queers trying to make points. Of course.

    Comparing chick-fil-a to popeyes is like comparing sweet ambrosia of the gods to warm pig shit with mexican pubes mixed in. Let liberals eat shit food; they are bitter turds to a man and it would suit them well to enjoy life even less.

    The American Patriot Alliance Launches “BECAUSE GOD MATTERS!” Campaign

    In the past few weeks, Chick-Fil-A, a conservative, traditional family values company with over 1600 restaurants nationwide,
    has come under fire by numerous same-sex marriage extremist and
    intolerant, liberal groups because of their stance AGAINST such
    anti-Christian policies. Organizations such as the Human Rights
    Campaign, have showcased their OWN INTOLERANCE by denouncing CFA for
    their views and have continuously attacked them in the media for their
    “DISCRIMINATORY” policies towards the GLBT movement, WHEN IN FACT, they
    do NOT discriminate towards ANYONE based on race, creed, nationality,
    SEXUAL ORIENTATION, age or disability. In addition, CFA has NEVER had a
    discrimination case waged against them because of their business
    philosophy and charter. But NEVER let a good crisis go to waste, a
    philosophy espoused by the Obama administration and supporters of
    anti-American/Christian values!

    In that respect, The American
    Patriot Alliance, in support of Chick-Fil-A, announced today the launch
    of the “BECAUSE GOD MATTERS” Campaign to benefit our Nation’s military
    troops and to affirm our beliefs in Biblically-based Conservative,
    family-oriented values and traditions.

    From today through
    August 30, 2012, The American Patriot Alliance will donate 25% of the
    total of any Chick-Fil-A restaurant receipt photographed and posted on
    either the American Patriot Alliance’s Face Book Page or Group. This
    money will then be used to provide our military troops overseas with
    CARE Packages and essential personal items.

    Photos should be
    posted to either of the following Face Book sites, with any personally
    identifiable information blacked out or removed. Please feel free to
    include comments in support of Chick-Fil-A or any messages you may wish
    to convey to our troops when sending the CARE Packages.

    God bless you all. God Bless America. Semper Fi.

    Chick-Fil-A, a truly GREAT American, free-enterprise, job-creations
    company!)

    Kudos! Wish we had a Chik-fil-A here!

    I don’t know why it has to be such a black or white issue. You can disagree with Chick – Fil -A’s stance on homosexuality and gay marriage (which I do) and still acknowledge that they are doing a very good thing by providing meals to the brave officers trying to make some sense of the tragedy in Aurora. You can agree with people on some things and disagree with them on others. I think the name calling on BOTH sides is sad and childish. And just because I support gay marriage and do not knowingly patronize businesses that support anti gay organizations doesn’t mean I’m any less of a Christian than anyone else and it certainly doesn’t lump me in with the people who posted those ugly things on Twitter. If you don’t want to be unfairly judged for your stance on an issue, then don’t do it to other people.

      Nicely said!

    Not to mention they came in and opened the restaurant just for this. They were not open yet. Thats above and beyond the call. And they wernt just feeding cops for free to make themselvez ferl good or gain good standing with the police. This was an outreach from the heart!
