The Shocking Rumors About Chick-fil-A are True, America
April 17, 2018, Todd Starnes -- In recent days, The New Yorker has made some downright scurrilous accusations about the restaurant, Chick-Fil-A. The magazine warned that the beloved fast food restaurant that specializes in chicken was waging a “guerrilla insurgency” upon Gotham’s [New York] citizenry – plotting to evangelize the city by luring the masses with chicken sandwiches.
The writer Dan Piepenbring lamented, “The brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. Its headquarters, in Atlanta, are adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet. Its stores close on Sundays. 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. If the restaurant is a megachurch, the Cows are its ultimate evangelists. It’s politics, its décor, and its commercial-evangelical messaging are infected with this suburban piety." [See essay titled, “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City.” ]
Well, America – the time has come for you to know the truth. The New Yorker caught us red-handed. The jig is up. The truth is - that months ago a covert team of specially trained Southern Christians crossed the Mason-Dixon Line along with a herd of grammatically-challenged bovines [cows]. Our mission was to convert the Yankee heathens with gracious Southern hospitality and delicious chicken sandwiches. Well, praise the Lord and drink some sweet tea! More here
Son of Samuel Truett Cathy, Dan Cathy, Chick Fil A Chief Operating Officer Statements:
On 6/16/12 Daniel T. Cathy said about Supreme Court Ruling on same sex marriage :
"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". 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."
On July 2, 2012 Biblical Recorder published an interview with Dan Cathy, who was asked about opposition to his company's "support of the traditional family."
"Well, guilty as charged. We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. ... We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that. We intend to stay the course. We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."
Defenders of Chick-fil-A point out that the company donates thousands of pounds of food to New York Common Pantry, and that its expansion creates jobs. [The bigoted article from the New Yorker is here]
