Scene: Our local Chick-Fil-A
Time: 8:15 P.M.
Suspects: The local police
Official Report: By now you know I love Chick-Fil-A and have done several posts on it. So yesterday, after having a hard and long day and not feeling well, we headed to Chick-Fil-A for a late dinner. YIKES, what was this?? Police cars in front of the place, with the lights flashing and crime tape all around!! Phil says "They've been robbed!". But I am thinking that someone has choked or had a heart attack. What to do, what to do? Peering inside, the customers were eating their food and seemed unconcerned!! We had been going to use the drive-through, but now this demanded a walk inside to see what was up! Inside were more policemen and a spinning wheel. Yes, the police were there to raise money for their department!!! You paid some money, spun the wheel, and got a chance for free food. I could tell them one way to get money. They had to leave the car engine running all evening so the red and blue lights could stay on and spin around! We did not play the game. They had given us a scare and I am still wondering if it was right for them to raise money in this way, what do you think????
“The police aren't there just to be admired in their uniforms. God also has an interest in keeping order, and he uses them to do it. That's why you must live responsibly—not just to avoid punishment but also because it's the right way to live.”
