Networking: Patriot Businesses and Cancelled Patriots

Jul 21, 2022    Michael Seifert

Public Square. Why?

What is happening at Chick-Fil-A? National Chick-Fil-A protest day was overrun with SUPPORTERS, no protesters.The Parallel Economy.People felt their values were being represented in the marketplace and they were excited about it. That’s why so many supporters were there.Starbucks and many banks started actively supporting woke values and initiatives. There is a remnant in the midst of this phenomenon. 

Effects of Biblical Values in the Marketplace:

People were adversely treated because of their stance on vaccines and mask mandates.The CEO of Goya came out and supported Donald Trump and AOC called for a boycott. However, their sales exploded! Coffee shops who disobeyed government shut-down mandates had patrons coming to buy coffee from 2 hours away just to show support. 

Public Square Exists to Connect Businesses and Patrons with Shared Values:

Give everyone the list of businesses they can feel proud of supporting.After 16 months, it is the largest business directory out there. 26 and 27 year olds that said “yes” to the Lord accomplished this.Let’s move our dollars from woke companies to liberty-loving companies.
