Chick-Fil-A in New York City, NYC, is being attacked by being called “creepy” by The New Yorker. Chick-Fil-A is a light no matter where they open their store and this new store being opened in NYC is bringing light into the darkness. They currently have four stores in NYC and have a plan to open 12 more according to, The New Yorker. This report is titled: Chick-Fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York 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. The stores close on Sundays.” This is not the only store that closes on Sundays; Hobby Lobby also decided to close on Sundays to give their employees the day off to worship if they so desire. Hobby Lobby, and the Green family who owns Hobby Lobby has been blessed and they were a large contributor to the opening of the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. You can honor God with your business as well, and God will bless you! The New Yorker’s report continues, “This emphasis on community, especially in the misguided nod to 9/11, suggests an ulterior motive. “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, which has the ersatz homespun ambiance of a megachurch.” As Christians we do not force our faith on anyone, we are called to love as Chick-Fil-A is showing us.
