The New Yorker: Chick-fil-A’s ‘Creepy Infiltration’ Of NYC Because Of ‘Pervasive Christian Traditionalism’

Part of the “politicization” of everything is the politicization of the fast food chicken sandwich… Well, I wouldn’t expect anything less from our ideological overlords.

The one thing they cannot change, though, is that Chick Fil A has phenomenal food and the best chicken sandwich on the planet. Their corporate culture also embraces treating their employees very well.
