Football is not only one of America’s biggest sports, but it’s also one of the biggest industries in our country. Between high school, NCAA and the NFL, the industry brings in an inordinate amount of billions per year.
Although the biggest money grabber would be from television revenue, stadium attendance also pulls in a ton of money and that largely benefits the local economies amongst all of the restaurants, retail and living accommodations.
But nobody makes more money than the restaurants in the stadium and pro-Christian Chick-fil-A just made one move that surprised everyone.
It’s sad to see that the landscape in America has changed so much where many businesses are afraid to reveal that they are Christian and it wasn’t like that in the olden days. The liberal elites openly mock Christians that live and profess their faith openly.
Everyone knows that Sunday is the day for Christian worship. But Sunday is also a day for NFL football and this Sunday happens to be the biggest game of the year – Super Bowl LIII between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams.
If your city is lucky enough to host the Super Bowl it would be like you just hit the lottery if you work in the local economy. Wherever you work, whatever industry you’re in, your city gains billions of dollars in revenue.
So you would think it would be stupid to not cash in on all of that revenue potential if you’re business owner, right?
The fast food giant Chick-fil-A sure doesn’t think so.
In fact, although they have a restaurant in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia where Super Bowl LIII will be played on February 3, they’ll still carry on their longstanding tradition and remain closed that Sunday.
Sports Illustrated in Business Insider confirmed the statement where they wrote, “Having worked seven days a week in restaurants open 24 hours, Truett saw the importance of closing on Sundays so that he and his employees could set aside one day to rest and worship if they choose — a practice we uphold today.”
Chick-fil-A has maintained that position since 1946 which was established by Truett Cathy, its founder.
It’s not often where you’ll see a business choose their faith over money. And it’s not just a little bit of money either; they would make out like bandits on Super Bowl Sunday.
The pro-Christian organization was just caught up in the news recently when a homosexual sportswriter from SB Nation publicly shamed the executives who run the Peach Bowl for allowing Chick-fil-A to sponsor the game.
The writer’s name is Cyd Zeigler and it almost seemed more like a cry for help than anything else. What he was complaining about was how Zeigler whined that the pro-family Chick-fil-A opposed the homosexual political agenda.
This stems from an incident when current CEO Dan T. Cathy publicly expressed his opposition towards gay marriage. You can imagine how liberals felt about his position even though it’s purely emblematic of his Christian views. There were so furious they wanted to boycott.
Zeigler wrote, “Years after Chick-fil-A family man and CEO Dan Cathy tried to distance his company from the anti-gay positions he and the Chick-fil-A brand had taken, promising to make changes. Chick-fil-A has doubled down on the support of anti-LGBTQ causes, one of which takes direct aim at gay, lesbian, bisexual and queer athletes.”
But the funny thing about all of this is that the fast food giant is still one of the biggest in America, which means it didn’t work at all. In fact, Chick-fil-A’s chicken is so delicious you could probably find liberals who were actively “boycotting” by sneaking the food while the others weren’t looking.
It really is that delicious.
And it looks like those poor Super Bowl attendees won’t be enjoying that deliciousness either.
