Last week, New Yorker writer Dan Piepenbring suggested that Chick-fil-A didn’t belong in the “woke” liberal mecca of the Big Apple, even though it has four locations there now. He was clucking over the opening of the newest location in Manhattan, the biggest Chick-fil-a restaurant in the world. Piepenbring called the chain’s Christian corporate culture “creepy,” accused it of anti-LGBTQ bigotry because the founder believes in traditional marriage, and wrote, “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 (in Lower Manhattan), which has the ersatz homespun ambiance of a megachurch.”
Well, if he meant to draw a line in the sand, New Yorkers have now made it clear where they stand: they’re standing in line at the new Chick-fil-a. Another location estimates that it’s selling one chicken sandwich every six seconds, and the chain has plans to open a dozen stores in NYC. I doubt that New Yorkers buy a copy of the New Yorker every six seconds. I bet some have gone at least six years without buying one, and Piepenbring makes it clear why. Tasty chicken will always be easier to swallow than elitist leftist paranoia and anti-Christian bigotry.
