New York Writer Is Scared Of Chick-Fil-A’s Christianity
Chick-fil-A is rolling out a new flagship restaurant in New York City, prompting a smug liberal to wish for boycotts, compare the chain’s marketing to 9/11 and cry that Christian traditions are tearing his world apart.
Without meaning to, Chick-fil-A has uncovered the true way to defeat the Yankees: with Southern food and a belief in God over money.
Chick-fil-A was founded in 1946 and has over 2,200 restaurants around the world but primarily in the United States. The business focuses on chicken sandwiches and is know for long waits in the drive-thru and closing on Sunday due to the Christian beliefs of the chain’s management. The founder of the company, S. Truett Cathy was a devout Southern Baptist. In 2011, Chick-fil-A was under fire from left-wing media for sponsoring a marriage conferencing that was against same-sex legislation. This happened at the time when complaining that straight people weren’t baking gay wedding cakes was common, so the chain was dragged through the mud by the press and was found to have committed other communist sins like donating millions to Christian and “anti-gay” groups. But, the Spicy Deluxe won and sales have been good enough to expand into New York.
New Yorker: Ew, Christians
In an ominous article about the terrifying Southern Baptists with their terrifying Southern food, the New Yorker on Friday published a piece entitled “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City,” and paired it with this tweet:
Chick-fil-A’s arrival in New York City feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. https://t.co/wnhMrMBN6z

There’s no point in crying out that if the New Yorker had said such a thing about any other group:
- Kebab’s arrival in New York City feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Islamic traditionalism.
- Deli’s arrival in New York City feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Jewish traditionalism.
- Tim Horton’s arrival in New York City feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Canadian traditionalism.
…that they would be skinned alive by the same left wingers who drool over the paper.
New Yorker Says Chick-fil-A Evokes 9/11
So let’s take a look at the long-winded article itself.
When the author of the article describes the look of one of the restaurants, they point out that the decor is made out of “reclaimed wood” which is apparently a curiosity in New York City. But, as the author says, the chalkboard outside the restaurant is pretty much 9/11 all over again:
“A blackboard with the header “Our Community” displays a chalk drawing of the city skyline. Outside, you can glimpse an earlier iteration of that skyline on the building’s façade, which, with two tall, imperious rectangles jutting out, “gives a subtle impression of the Twin Towers.”
The author believes that while the restaurant’s press release to celebrate the opening of their newest NYC store intends to create an “inviting space to build community,” they’re actually tearing that community down, just like how a bunch of angry Muslims once killed 3,000 people in the same city.
Did this guy not try the waffle fries…?
He believes that the restaurant, with their 9/11 loving chalkboard has an “ulterior motive,” which the author says is found in the scary corporate motto of the store, which is to “glorify God.”
Overall, the author seems committed to throwing out as many 10 dollar words as possible in a review of a chicken sandwich restaurant while implying that having Southern-style chain restaurants on Yankee soil is basically 9/11. Except this guy probably would prefer radical Muslim immigration.
New Yorker: Chicken Sandwiches Hurts The Gays
Not only does the author of this piece think that Southerners = 9/11, but he believes that a Southern Baptist owner who preferred his God to profit is the kind of “pervasive Christian traditionalism” that hurts gays. You know, the same kind of Christian traditionalism on which the country itself was founded.
The author lists a few of the infractions that make Chick-fil-A uncool in his opinion:
Its headquarters, in Atlanta, are adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet. Its stores close on Sundays. Its C.E.O., Dan Cathy, has been accused of bigotry for using the company’s charitable wing to fund anti-gay causes, including groups that oppose same-sex marriage. “We’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation,” he once said, “when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’ ”
When the chain first opened a store in New York in 2015, it was protested. Still, it survived, because the sandwiches are addictive. Another opened in Queens in 2016 and Mayor Bill de Blasio suggested a boycott, but this time, with the opening of the newest spot — here there are no boycotts.
Just sandwiches and customers.
