The New Yorker attacked Chick-fil-A over its Christian values.
The article refers the fast food restaurant’s move into New York as a kind of Christian attack in the city.
New York has taken to Chick-fil-A. One of the Manhattan locations estimates that it sells a sandwich every six seconds, and the company has announced plans to open as many as a dozen more storefronts in the city. And yet the brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. 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.
The story describes the downtown restaurant’s environment as a type of “megachurch” and complains the facility uses the corporate goal “to glorify God.”
Chick-fil-A is a popular food chain outlet and the growth of the brand in New York City speaks to the company’s success.
The New Yorker article’s purpose is to attack Chick-fil-A over its Christian values.
