The Left Hates Chick-fil-A Because of Christianity

Evidently for the Left, tolerance is no longer in vogue; instead, overt anti-Christian bigotry has become its siren call. This attitude is exemplified by a recent article in The New Yorker entitled “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City.” In the piece, Dan Piepenbring, rather than critique Chick-fil-A over the flavor of its Spicy Chicken Sandwich or the speed of its service, blasts the growing success of Chick-fil-A over its “infiltration” of New York with “its pervasive Christian traditionalism.”

Piepenbring sees as problematic the fact that Chick-fil-A’s Atlanta headquarters facility “is adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet,” and that “its stores close on Sundays.” Piepenbring writes, “There’s something especially distasteful about Chick-fil-A, which has sought to portray itself as better than other fast food: cleaner, gentler, and more ethical, with its poultry slightly healthier than the mystery meat of burgers.” He adds, “Its politics, its d├ęcor, and its commercial-evangelical messaging are inflected with this suburban piety.”

He wasn’t done. Piepenbring relates, “The restaurant’s corporate purpose still begins with the words ‘to glorify God,’ and that proselytism thrums below the surface of the Fulton Street restaurant, which has the ersatz homespun ambiance of a megachurch.” Wow, so any company with traditional Christian beliefs that dares to apply its beliefs is “an infiltration.” How “woke” of him to call out this consistent belief system..

Chick-fil-a is the only fast food we will eat.

Interesting. Probably the two busiest fast food places in Da Bury. Chic Fil a and Cook Out. I wonder which one you are more likely to get your butt whipped in the drive through?

I don't need a dose of religion with my chicken. Rofo chicken is fine with me.

Piepenbring doesn't realize that this is all a part of the diversity that the Liberals strain at the leash to put on our plates at every meal.

Some evidently don't care for diversity other than their own and would deny everyone else the opportunity to experience it.

Wasn't Jesus considered "left" back in his day?

Well the last time the liberal left advocated a boycott of Chic-fil-a it backfired entirely. Remember the same sex marrage issue that Chic-fil-a issued their official protest. Right after that I went to the SBY Chick-fil-a and the public practically knocked the doors down in support of their initiative. I am not kidding you either, their were hundreds in both the car lanes and inside. How that little building holds so much food is beyond me.

1 Timothy 2:11-12

Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.

I have been there many times and never felt any religion as these comments claim. Although it would not harm us, the only thing I have seen is clean, knowledgeable, polite people in their employment. Myself, I like that and if it keeps liberals away that is excellent.

Love Chick-fil-A for many reasons. Their food is healthier, very tasty and priced right...their staff is Very courteous and their stores are really clean...This means a lot to me. Just because the owners are Christian doesn't mean you have to get your panties in a wad. Truth is truth.

One day you (and everyone) will show some respect and He will save your soul from the punishment reserved for Satan and his demons.

A clean friendly place to eat. What a concept? Leftist are idiots.

Ever notice how clean the rest rooms are in conservative establishments and how polite the employees are. Try going to BK or McD. They are rude and filthy. The WaWa rest rooms look like like a drug den. So I will continue my support of Chic Filet. The left just sucks.

Chic-Fil-A is clean, better service and better food. I'll eat there anytime over other fast food places. And I'd do the same if Muslims owned it. I wish the left would stop their bellyaching and practice what they have been preaching for years. Coexist!
