New Yorker Mag Decries Chick-fil-A's 'Creepy Pervasive Christian Traditionalism'
An article in The New Yorker magazine scorns the popularity of Chick-fil-A, the fast food chicken chain with Christian values, in New York City, calling it "creepy pervasive Christian traditionalism." The author says its presence is "awash with cash, Christ, and evangelizing Cows."
"The brand's arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism," writes Dan Piepenbring, overlooking the fact that its first store opened four years ago.
The article seeks to "warn" New Yorkers that Chick-fil-A'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."...
You know, I wonder what Michael Brown said about the Chick Fil A thing, if someone can go to askdrbrown and see if there was an article on it or see if it was on his show, and give us a link to that, that would be great.
It‚Äôs going to get crowded in that bathroom at Starbucks, homeless, the loitering and illegal immigrants are all going to want to hang out at Starbucks, or folks will have to pay an extra dollar per cup for folks who want to protest or shuffle in and borrow the bathroom.
Just a guy wrote: Dr. Tim from Land of Cotton writes: I don't reckin he'd keer much fer McOppossum's neither. Pobably not. Although our roadkill oppossum nuggets are pretty hard to resist...
Y'know, we seem to be exhausting our resources here for possum. Maybe we need to relocate to New York! Thinking about it...monster sewer rats instead of sickly possums. I could get way more meat for my money. International House of Possum opens in New York city...yep!
Hey Wayfarer, yeah, Howard Schultz is about as liberal as they come. Several years ago or so, while speaking to his stockholders, and on the topic of sodomite marriage, he told everyone in attendence to sell their stock immediately if they believed in biblical marriage, saying there was no room in his company for such bigotry and nonsense, etc.
Or it could be like ‚Äú Starbucks ‚Äú, where you could be arrested for vagrancy for using a bathroom and not buying anything. Of course , if they just would have hired 10,000, illegal immigrants they would have a more difficult problem of women birthing children in their bathroom.
I can‚Äôt think of a better liberal company than Starbucks to hire 10,000 illegal immigrants, and let homeless men loiter around the premises hustling patrons for money ‚Äú or else‚ÄĚ. Brew your own coffee and save your money from over priced burnt coffee beans swill water.
Wow. If Chick fil A is too overly Christian for that author, he'd probably freak out at our church. We're in Chick fil A a lot. Apart from the instrumental elevator-style renditions of current Christian contemporary songs and a few Bible verse references next to the signatures of the founder and family, there not much overt. The mere presence of something Christian must be the issue, warring against the demons and the author's flesh. If Chick fil A is creeping out guys like that simply by showing up and being themselves, we'll keep passing McPossum (sorry, gentlemen) and keep giving them our business. ūüėĀ
Seriously, shows just how dark NYC is spiritually and how big an impact a Gospel believing and preaching church can have there.
