    An LGBTQ media voice renewed the attack on Chick-fil-A this past weekend in the backdrop of Saturday's Peach Bowl college football game. The SB Nation sports blog's LGBTQ extension, Outsports, accused Peach Bowl sponsor Chick-fil-A and its foundation of bringing mental harm to LGBTQ athletes. Writer Cyd Zeigler says the Christian-owned restaurant chain is demeaning LGBTQ people by supporting organizations devoted to God’s design for sexual intimacy through the context of marriage. The story's headline reads Chick-fil-A's participation in sports is a "big F-you to LGBTQ people." Zeigler said he couldn't get past Chick-fil-A's donations, totaling millions of dollars, to...

    Chick-fil-A is on fire. The fast-growing chicken-sandwich franchise is poised to become the third-largest fast-food chain in the country next year by sales, replacing Subway, according to Kalinowski Equity Research. Chick-fil-A would leapfrog past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s, the No. 4, 5 and 6 chains respectively, according to the firm.

    On Tuesday, multiple Republican congressmen ripped into Google for listing the far-Left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a "trusted flagger" on its platform YouTube. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) ripped into Google CEO Sundar Pichai for trusting an organization that brands conservative and Christian groups "hate groups" along with the Ku Klux Klan. "You have a trusted flagger, you had indicated, called the Southern Poverty Law Center," Gohmert told Pichai. "The Southern Poverty Law Center really has stirred up more hate than about any other group I know." Gohmert referenced the 2012 terrorist attack against...

  • House Democrats Ban ‘Ideological’ Chick-Fil-A From Their ‘Thanksgiving-Type Meal’

    House Democrats hosting a “Thanksgiving-type meal” for their first caucus meeting reportedly banned “ideological food” such as Chick-fil-A. Rachael Bade, a congressional reporter with Politico and a CNN analyst, revealed what was strictly verboten in the meeting room where the majority typically meets. It’s difficult to ascertain from her message as to whether or not it was the Democrat lawmakers who shunned the Chick-fil-A/ideological food menu, or if it was an observation from Bade who then labeled it as such. Either way, it’s absurd to think that chicken now represents an ideology either to the House Democrats or a member...

    Chick-fil-A’s entrance in the Boston market comes six years after the late Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said he would oppose the chain from opening within city limits after Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy voiced his opposition to gay marriage in 2012. The bad press never impacted sales at the chain, which has seen its market share grow 13% in the last four years.

  • Left-Leaning Fast Food Fans Lose Appetite After In-N-Out Burger Donates To CA GOP

    The late CEO, Rich Snyder, was an evangelical Christian and supporter of Republican candidates, and current president Lynsi Snyder is also devout. Like cult chain Chick-fil-A, In-N-Out doesn’t make its founders’ Christian values a secret, per se. Customers just might be so focused on their Animal Style burgers that they don’t notice the references to Bible quotes printed on the wrappers. However, it’s not clear that the company’s current leadership is nearly as aligned with the Republicans as that of Chick-fil-A, a company that has publicly come out against LGBT rights. According to campaign finance filings, In-N-Out Burger also donated...

On July 25, Chick-fil-A President and COO Tim Tassopoulos announced that the chain will open its first international location in the city in 2019, with plans to open 15 more restaurants through the next five years in the greater Toronto area. “Toronto is a great city – with diverse and caring people, a vibrant restaurant culture and a deep talent pool,” he said in an open letter. “These characteristics align perfectly with...

    Forget the Golden Arches of McDonald’s, or the Whopper at Burger King, even the double double of In-N-Out Burger. Chick-fil-A is the tops for those wanting a fast meal. The chicken chain was named the favorite limited-service restaurant by consumers according to the 2018 American Customer Satisfaction Index’s Restaurant Report, USA Today reported. Chick-fil-A beat out other restaurants like Panera and Taco Bell based on interviews with 22,500 customers. They were asked about the products, services and satisfaction, USA Today reported.

    . Earlier this week Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was forced to apologize after eating at Chick-fil-A… during Pride Month! The horror! Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey ignited a backlash online after revealing that he ate at Chick-fil-A this month. On Saturday, Dorsey posted a photo on Twitter with the caption "Boost @ChickfilA," showing he had saved 10% on a $31.58 order at the fast-food chain. A "boost" is a cashback reward Square users can earn when using a Cash Card, which is a debit card from the payment platform. Critics immediately seized on Dorsey's support of Chick-fil-A — whose...

    So you can imagine how upsetting it was for me when Chick-fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy, proudly came out as a homophobe in 2012 by claiming, “We are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,’ and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.” Even worse, the company put its money where Cathy’s vile mouth was by donating millions of dollars each year...

    Chick-fil-A has a secret, and it’s my pleasure to share: the chain has a whole host of secret menu items. Some are so good they’ve arguably become even more popular than the regular menu items, according to Hack the Menu. There’s no “official” secret menu, but it seems the less complicated a special item is, the more likely employees will make it for you. Here are some of the Chick-fil-A secret menu items that have people buzzing: Buffalo Chicken Sandwich This is simply the Spicy Chicken Sandwich plus the signature Zesty Buffalo Sauce. You end up with a crispy buffalo...

    June 11, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The head of Twitter apologized over the weekend for having dinner at Chick-fil-A as a private citizen, in response to liberal outrage over the restaurant chain’s Christian values. On Saturday evening, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted a screenshot showing he had eaten at a Los Angeles Chick-fil-a location: Chick-fil-a is famously operated on the Christian principles of its national leadership, including closing on Sundays, listing “to glorify God” as part of its corporate purpose, and its active charitable arm.

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Sunday expressed regret over eating at Chick-fil-A, because of the chicken company’s CEO’s personal views on gay marriage. Dorsey tweeted a screenshot from his phone that showed a purchase he had made at Chick-fil-A using a mobile application. After a liberal backlash, however, Dorsey apologized for eating at the popular fast food restaurant. At issue was Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s 2012 support for defining marriage as between a man and a woman, which he described as “the biblical definition of a family.”
