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.

    I like Chick-Fil-A, but it is not a proselytizing organization like the Libs like to allege. It's just a restaurant like dozens of others. It just happens to be owned by a Christian. It's amazing how much hypocrisy and bigotry hides behind the Social Justice Warrior.

    Well, good. It's about time. NYC is finally getting some high class cuisine. And leave it to the low class, crass-minded snobs to snub their noses at it.

    I'm sure the New Yorker writer is astounded at the success of Chick-fil-A in the Big Apple! I believe he expected the residents of New York to turn their back on the Chick and drive them away with protests. He is shocked at it's success. I can't imagine how horrified he is that the Christian owners and workers haven't been ridden out of town on a rail by angry athiests. What he DOESN'T understand is that if you serve good food at reasonable prices and if you treat people with respect and you are helpful and polite, people will patronize your business no matter WHERE it is. I feel sorry for the writer. He's so blinded by his hatred of Christians that the truth escapes him. I feel for him and think we should pray for him.

    Glen Beck did a hilarious parody on Chik-fil-A on his Facebook page. Not a fan of his, but this was great.

    Sounds to me like the vox populi has spoken. Let's listen instead of shouting over them because we may not agree.

    They have the best customer service because they train their employees how to treat a customer. Good food and good service is tough to find in the fast food world. I also read that they are rapidly coming alongside the top fast food chains in $ sales, despite being closed on Sundays while the others are slaving away 7 days a week. God blesses those that take a stand for what is right.
