Say Hey! Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day In Northridge

It is funny how a little thing like an interview given by a CEO in a special interest magazine, can be taken out of context and publicized by other special interest groups including the corporate media complex, motivates people to do something as simple as purchase a sandwich on a specific day.

Today, August 1, 2012 became Chick-fil-A appreciation day throughout the United States. The day was called as a show of support by Fox News Channel program host and former Governor Mike Huckabee for the statements made by Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy that had become the center of a boycott action by those who wish to change the definition of Marriage by homosexuals and those of a progressive political agenda to change our culture.

In an interview with the Baptist Press, Cathy says Chick-fil-A is “guilty as charged” when it comes to actively opposing marriage equality.

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say ‘we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage’ and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.”

Curious about the turnout, and wishing to show support, it was hard to find a Chick-fil-A location in the city of Los Angeles from the San Fernando Valley area. Only three locations might have been somewhat accessible - Santa Clarita Valley, Hollywood near Hollywood High School, and Northridge just south of Nordhoff Street on Tampa Ave. west of Cal State Northridge campus across the street from COSTCO.
