A writer at the New Yorker (and presumably, the editorial staff agrees), is horrified at the arrival and growth of Chik-Fil-A restaurants in New York City. Mainly because of the icky Christianity and niceness.
“Chick-fil-A’s arrival in New York City feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism,” Dan Piepenbring wrote in an article that reads more like parody than journalism.
In the piece, Piepenbring condemns “creepy” Chick-fil-A over its owners’ Christian faith, the company’s charitable contributions, and its popular ad campaign featuring cows encouraging patrons to “Eat Mor Chikin.”
The writer also noted disdain for the fact that the walls of the restaurant’s Atlanta headquarters are “adorned with Bible verses” and at the center of campus there is a “statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet.”
But forcing schoolchildren to recite “There is no God but Allah,” not a problem.
