CA based In-N-Out Burger prints bible verses on product containers since 1980's

Since the 1980s, In-N-Out prints discreet references to Bible verses on their paper containers. These consist of the book, chapter, and number of the verse, not the text of the passage, in small print on an inconspicuous area of the item.

They've been doing this since the 1980s.

I am surprised the intolerant leftist/homosexuals have not protested.

So long as they don’t print Leviticus 18:22 they’ll have have trouble from the fabulous set.

A privately run, profitable, religious company is totally unacceptable. This Ministry of Tolerance and Equality must be notified immediately.

How many attendees at LBGT meetings can say the 23rd Psalm from memory or know John 3:16 by heart? They probably think it’s some kind of secret government code. Now that the word is out that it’s actually a reference to a Bible scripture they will probably be coming out of the woodwork.

I’m sure the only reason they haven’t protested is that they don’t know. Edwards Pies used to print bible versus on their boxes but they sold the company and the new owners no longer do it. I love supporting Christian companies.

Yep, known that for a while now.

As an aside, I had a friend that worked at IAO back in the late 70's and made close to $8.00 an hour.

Back in those days, for a teenager, that was darn good money.

But you have to experience a Tommy's Burger dripping with Chili, nuanced and enhanced with some hot yellow chili peppers.

Of course, Carney's on Ventura Blvd. (So. Cal.) wasn't too bad either ;)

I love those burgers. They sautee the onions, grill the buns and use Thousand Island Dressing. I could do that at home but it just wouldn’t be the same.

Love a nice, big, tasty juicy burger. Problem is the cardiovascular system takes a greasy hit. Gotta watch the high cholesterol and high triglycerides this old body gets afflicted with. Gotta stick with the chicken and fish mostly. Every now and then I cheat though— gimmee some a dat red meeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaattttttttttt.

Been to both in L.A. They are good.

IAO is very good though, and extremely well run. When they put up a new restaurant, they pay cash, no debt on them. They also pick great locations as well.

In my country... we do not allow such hate stores. Vive La France!

Several people have told me that both Chick-fil-A and In-N-Out Burger are wholly owned by Mitt Romney... and he doesn't pay one cents of taxes on them. Let Romney prove this is untrue--

After my re-election, we will open millions of government owned Obama Burgers where collectively "We will all... serve man"--

It is fairly common to see people take out the B and the R of B-U-R-G-E-R- to get "In and Out Urge" on hats and T-shirts and such. My favorite Bible verse they put on their food is Revelation 3:20—"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."

Back in the '70s they used to (maybe still do) have bumper stickers that said "In 'N Out" on the top line and "Burger" on the bottom line. Jokers would cut off the "B" and the "r" in "Burger" before putting the bumper stickers on their cars.

I like that they don’t mess around with the menu. Basic burgers and fries. Of course there is the “secrete menu” which is mostly customer driven, but they’re not constantly making up weird crap that no one wants like some of the other chains.

Heh, heh, heh... just one of my many weaknesses, and I'm not referring to liking them.

There are times when I feel like the only guy on the planet who does not like Tommy's Burgers, but I truly don't care for them.


I do concede, it must be my fault too.  ;^)

Of course, Carney's on Ventura Blvd. (So. Cal.) wasn't too bad either ;)


I haven't tried Carney's.  I don't remember being around one of the locations, and stopping in.

I'm probably what someone should refer to as a poor-man's hamburger aficionado.  It doesn't have to be a gourmet burger.  I love just about any burger, and just about any fries.  Beef and potatoes.  Mmm mmm good!  I stop in at small stands sometimes, and they amaze me with the taste of their burgers and fries.

In n Out / Cheeseburger or Double Double w/Cheese - super yummm...  Fries, like them too... what's the deal with no desert?
    would like to see them expand their menu, but their staff is the best trained, most curteous that I have run into
    they put out a lot of prodoct in a very short amount of time, and the quality remains high - I do respect that
Burger King / Whopper and their new bigger fries - Oh baby...  I like the their fish sandwich too.
Carl's Jr / the Bacon Western Cheeseburger and Fries - Eeee, I'm getting hungry!
McDonalds / Quarter Pounder, Big Mac, Fish Sandwish... and the fries - We've got one at the bottom of the hill, I'll be right back...

I'm back.  Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...
  I never left but you'll never know huh...

There are other burgers, and I like them all.

Jack in the Box's Ultimate Cheese Burger w/Bacon is also good

In N Out
Burgers

The above were the words on a bumper sticker they used to give out, and possibly still do. Folks would cut out the B and the rs leaving urge.

So, the bumper sticker would read:
In N Out
urge

California is about 7 to 10% of it’s populace from being on the right track. If it had top level Conservatives coming to the state, say Presidents and top Congressional leaders, it could turn around in very short order.

It could do with a presentation series from people like Gingrich, touring the state, and spending a week in any given area, talking to real folks on real issues.. The guy is second to none when he talks about our Founding and the men who gathered to create this nation. It’s inspiring. That’s where his talents are.

He could go to college campuses. He could appear at major halls across the state. He could even spend time with small women’s groups, and church groups.

People of every race can be reached, if the original promises of this nation, were understood. Every citizen benefits from our rights, and the reduction in the size of government. Take home more of your pay. Realize which party really does care about your community, and is willing to team up with you to reduce crime. Take note of which party wants you to succeed, so you don’t need to be a burden on society, and which party wants to keep you down so it can count you in it’s power base.

Does welfare really contribute to your eventual success?

Is it better for your family if you have a job, or if you get welfare?

Do wealthy White people have it in for you? Don’t they benefit more if you are successful and contribute to a productive society.

We have acted like Conservatism just won’t sell in California. That’s hogwash. It’s tenets will sell anywhere, if we just tell folks what they are.

No problemo...

We seldom go to restaurants anymore, but if I do for fast food, it's CFA or In-N-Out, or possibly Wendy's.

The others can KMA.
