Chik-Fil-A Derangement Syndrome (CFADS)

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.

  1. What do you bet the non-cosumer boycott is steamrollered by the satisfied consumer patronage?

    “My pleasure.”

    “Don’t you pleasure me!!! I’m here to hate, bitch!”

  2. They never learned from their previous boycott, did they?

    To hear them talk, you’d think they had a cross displayed in every location, and gather the staff before every shift for a prayer.

  3. If I don’t like a business, I just don’t buy from it. Done and done.

    I guess New Yorker writers aren’t smart enough to figure that out.

  5. Heliotrope wrote, “the non-consumer boycott”

    Is that like a tree falling in the forest, with no one to hear it?

    I’ve never eaten at chick-fil-a. I’m going to change that.

  6. Re: Consumer Boycotts.

    Him: “Have you ever done anything behind my back without telling me?”
    Me: “Yes.”
    Him: “What was it?”
    Me: “You know how you won’t buy ‘Fancy Feast’ because its corporate parent is Nestle, and you boycott Nestle for trying to take over the water supply in the third world? Well, sometimes I buy it and sneak it into the house because the khets love it.”

  7. There is no sandwich like Chikin, and Chick-Fil-A is it’s profit.

  8. Let’s hope these types keep up the horror reaction. I am quite certain these little monsters bring more customers to the business – hate – of – the – moment than they ‘educate’ to not spend money on services of the business – hate – of – the – moment.

    The business that is not in fear of these leftist thugs is an business that I like to support. Just call it freedom, and the wish to enable freedom for everyone.

  9. New Yorkers have been wary of religious infiltrators ever since those Christian terrorists hijacked 747s and crashed them into the World Trade Center.

    Oh, wait…

  10. There is so much stupidity in the New Yorker article, I hardly know where to begin. Suffice to say, however, that NYC has a gigantic number of mom-and-pop diners and pizza/burger/chicken/gyros joints — so to suggest that a few Chick-fil-A outlets are likely to crowd them out of business is preposterous.

  11. To be fair, at the very least, a slight majority of Americans are turned off and creeped out by religious missionaries. I’m talking about the obnoxious Factor. Which all plays into, componentwise, anti religion. I can understand that. It’s to this bothered majority that liberal biased opinionators are playing to in this instance as well as other incidents.

    Action, Reaction. Action giving leftists ammunition against faith. Remove one reaction and the reaction is nullified.

    The expensive chicken joint chain is being unfairly targeted, but don’t ever think that Chick A Filet doesn’t capitalize on that. Meaning, it’s a win-win for everyone.

  12. I have a major problem with Chik-Fil-A:

    Every time I have a craving, it is invariably is on a Sunday.

    Quel horreur!

  13. […] NYC has a gigantic number of mom-and-pop diners and pizza/burger/chicken/gyros joints […]

    It also has a gigantic number of McDonald’s and other chain restaurants (some, which are Tri-State Area-specific), particularly around the Times Square part of midtown. Many are owned-and-operated by the sainted mom-and-pops (as is the newest Chick-fil-A creating controversy).

    The fact that a new concept can crack the nation’s most expensive retail market is in itself testament to their success at what they do. In the past two years, I’ve had occasion to pass by the original Chick-fil-A location in Manhattan, and I’ve rarely seen it barren of customers (and when it has been, so have other establishments nearby), and this was after Comrade de Blasio issued his fatwa against it. I’m sure the new location will have a similar success.

    Fun fact: Chick-fil-A retains ownership of each restaurant, after selecting the location and constructing the building. The operators are chosen individually and generally don’t get to operate more than one restaurant.

  14. […] you boycott Nestle for trying to take over the water supply in the third world?

    Nestlé is a very difficult company to boycott, even after receiving heat from both left and right due to its sponsorship of The Ingraham Angle; which, for a smaller company could be alarming. I’m old enough to remember the boycott of Nestlé started in 1977 over its alleged dumping of infant formula in Third World countries. Many Christian religious denominations with involvement in the affected countries encouraged their members in the First World to boycott all Nestlé products. It had so little impact that before the boycott was officially ended, churches in the US were being encouraged to boycott just two specific products in order to demonstrate an effect. I would imagine that many of the people who are today boycotting Nestlé for one reason or another don’t even realize how many brands they own. (Which, incidentally, will not include any of their legendary chocolate products in the USA after the sale of that tradeline to Ferrero SpA is completed.)

    On a related note, Ace Hardware is enduring lefty ire after resuming its sponsorship of The Ingraham Angle upon the return of its namesake host from Easter vacation. Even President Obama’s first Secretary of Education is getting in on the act by claiming that “they don’t deserve our business”. (I’m guessing he must own shares in either Home Depot or Lowe’s.)

  15. So the NEW YORKER has no problem with Islam massacres (PULSE nightclub, San Bernardino, Boston Marathon), but is bent out of shape with Christians selling chicken sandwiches??

  16. After a gay bar kicked out a gay Republican, the Regressive Left revealed itself to be both fascist and hypocritical in intent and effect once and for all. Even their fetish for “diversity” really means “external diversity, internal conformity.” They only tolerate gays, women, and people of color who serve the interests of str8 white liberal males without question.
