    Can you imagine this happening even ten years ago? This is the pace of “social change” in the seventh year of the reign of the Emperor Hussein: A highly adored and highly controversial fast food chain satisfied cravings and ruffled a few feathers Saturday with the grand opening of its first official Manhattan outpost. Chick-Fil-A, the massively popular Southern staple owned by a conservative Christian family known for their anti-gay marriage views, hatched a 5,000-square-foot store in Herald Square to mixed reviews from fervent devotees and activists.“This is the best chicken in the world, in my opinion.” said Dana...

    The great and terrible Chick-fil-A has come to Babylon. Im pretty sure thats a quote from Ghostbusters, right before the dogs and cats living together bit. Yes, the mighty and controversial, but undisputed King of chicken has come at last to New York City, and despite any past enmity, the city is thrilled and the residents are lined up for blocks to get the precious. Being from the south, Chick-fil-A has long been a passion of mine. If youre wondering, I order the classic as is. I put a little mayo and mustard on it. I escape to euphoria. And...

    Westchesters neighborhood council has been taking complaints for years about a boarded-up former Grinder restaurant on Sepulveda Boulevard near Manchester Avenue, which until recently was occupied by a group of homeless men. So when Chick-Fil-A came calling with an interest in taking over the site, it looked like a win-win. Instead, a longstanding ban on drive-thru restaurants in downtown Westchester has Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin opposed to the plan and butting heads with a neighborhood council wanting to make an exception to the rule. The stalemate between Bonin and supporters of the fast-food chain has property owner Perry...

    Holier-than-thou liberals on the Denver city council are waging war on Chick-fil-A in the name of tolerance and diversity. Now, let me tell you what the squawking is really all about: It's a distraction, a feint, a mile-high smokescreen. Spiteful Democrats claim they are upholding progressive "Denver values" by delaying approval of an airport concession contract with the Christian-owned restaurant chain. But the politically correct storm over same-sex marriage (which Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy personally opposes) is convenient cover for the local government's serial mismanagement, bloated spending and shady contracting practices. Denver International Airport concessionaires raked in more than $322...

    Fascism. Forcing you to bake a gay wedding cake is just the start. The gay marriage fascists are pretty resourceful when it comes to using the power of government to enforce their orthodoxy. And by the way, this is one of the less-discussed problems with the perpetual expansion of government into everything. If you cant do business without government contracts, or without tax exemptions, you inevitably empower someone in the political realm to judge your worthiness to be in business at all. When the Denver City Council chooses a concessionaire for the Denver International Airport, the decision is supposed to...

    I've been listening to the chattering political class on tv and radio lately and their consensus seems to be that what will be the derailment of the Trump express will be his lack of a political organization, the so-called "boots on the ground" that brings out the voters. It is what supposedly cost Mitt Romney the election, not the fact that he was a boring milquetoast. Personally I think that the Donald will benefit from what I call the Chick-fil-A effect. Remember way back in 2012 when the chicken chain got tangled up in a Gay rights controversy? The Left...

    The owner of a fast food restaurant in Austin, Texas shocked his 50 employees by paying their full salaries during a five-month period when the business shut down. Jeff Glover, who has operated the Chick-fil-A for 15 years, wanted to remodel the building to accommodate more customers, but didnt want to hurt his workers. So he continued paying them for the full five months. The restaurant, which reopened this week at West Braker Lane and U.S. 183, is now the largest Chick-fil-A in Austinand surely the chicken retailer with the biggest heart.

    Chick-fil-A is America's favorite restaurant. American Customer Satisfaction Indexs 2015 Restaurant Survey named Chick-fil-A the most-loved restaurant in America. The company scored an 86 out of a possible 100 points in customer satisfaction, beating Chipotle and Panera Bread. Chick-fil-A's secret? Having the perfect blend of great food and excellent customer service. Fast casual companies like Chick-fil-A are successful because they, "typically offer better ingredients, freshness, and more developed dcor," according to the report. Chick-fil-A not only beat all other chains in customer satisfaction, but it also took ACSI's top rating in dining experience as well. The criteria evaluated for this...

    These are dark days for KFC's once-dominant chicken empire. After five years of crumbling sales, the extra crispy mega-chain, which in 2012 lost its throne as America's top chicken seller to Chick-fil-A, now makes less money than eateries half its size, like Applebee's and Panera Bread. Now, 75 years after "Colonel" Harland Sanders first served his original recipe at a six-seat dining table in rural Kentucky, the chain is betting $185 million on a massive, bizarre turnaround campaign in hopes of winning a seat again at the fast-food table. The chain is blasting out TV ads, offering new Southern-style grub...

    Students at Johns Hopkins University voted this week to ask the schools administrators to prevent Chick-fil-A from opening a store on campus. Citing Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathys opposition to gay marriage, students said the presence of the chain on campus would be a microaggression against LGBT members of the community, Eater reports. Though the Student Government Association approved the resolution, the move is purely hypothetical: theres no indication that the Johns Hopkins administration was in negotiations with Chick-fil-A, though some students had wondered whether the chain might open a location in a new building under construction on campus.

    The more the general society rejects, spurns, and ignores the biblical pulpit, the greater the preachy culture expands. Starbucks' recent attempt to turn a coffee cup into a communion chalice is an example. The "communion" signified upon the cup was not about humans and God, but about humans "communing" with one another regarding race. The company, a denomination within the religion of Neo-Progressivism, launched its "Race Together" campaign to get us all set right on human relations. The PR didn't work, and so Starbucks had to dismantle the "Race Together" pulpit. However, that won't halt its preachiness. Jim Olson, a...

    There is certainly a political application of 4GW that can be made here, casting liberty lovers and traditionalists in the role of the non-state actors (i.e. the outsiders), and the culture-political hegemony of the cultural Marxists as the "state" whose legitimacy can (and in this case, ought) to be questioned. There have been sporadic moves in this direction, mostly arising demotically and probably not even realizing they were engaging in political 4GW. One of the most successful examples of this was the so-called "Chick-Fil-A appreciation day" which occurred a couple of years ago. If you will recall, Chick-Fil-A's President, Dan...

He rose from poverty to riches. Cathy opened his first restaurant in 1946, just after returning from serving his country in World War II. Today, Chick-fil-A has nearly 2,000 outlets in 39 states. All along, the man was faithful to his business, his family, and his God. You would think that his lifes story would elicit nothing but praise.

    Fifty years after he created the sandwich that launched America's top chicken restaurant chain, Georgia businessman Samuel Truett Cathy died early Monday. Cathy's Chick-fil-A has now grown to $5 billion in annual sales, and its stores still close on Sundays, reflecting its founder's religious beliefs. Cathy's death was announced by Chick-fil-A, which said, "He died peacefully at home, surrounded by loved ones." Last year, Chick-fil-A surpassed KFC with the most sales for a chicken restaurant chain in the U.S., on the strength of recent rapid growth. The company reached $1 billion in sales in 2000. After hitting $3 billion in...

    On August 2 pro-life abolitionist Caleb Head, a member of Abolish Human Abortion, observed a Chick-fil-A catering truck making a delivery to Houston Womens Clinic. According to Head, this abortion mill is the busiest in Houston and 4th busiest in the country. AHA initiated phone calls and online activism to admonish this Chick-fil-A, located at 3101 West Holcombe Avenue, to repent and never do this again. Heads father, Pastor Scott Head, wrote a letter to CFA Holcombes owner, Juli Salvagio, who responded: Our restaurant was simply fulfilling a catering request. Our goal is to serve great food with genuine hospitality...

    A member of the U.S. Army Band said he was forced out of the U.S. Army for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his personal car, serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at a party and reading books written by conservative authors like Sean Hannity, a federal lawsuit alleges. Master Sergeant Nathan Sommers, a 25-year veteran of the military and a decorated soloist in the U.S. Army Band Chorus, claims he was forcibly retired from the Army due to his religious and conservative political beliefs. I first told you about Sommers last year in a series of exclusive Fox News reports. John Wells, an...

    Every now and then I make a mistake and have to issue a public apology. Today, I am in the position of having to write a highly embarrassing apology to Brice Horton who was the subject of my recent column "Horton Hears the Who" and my not-so-recent column "Expel Brice Horton." My apology is largely motivated by Mr. Horton's recent threat to sue me for defamation of character. That written threat follows in unedited form: "Mr. Adams, I would appreciate it if you would delete your posts about me. My roommate is an attorney and says that we could go...

    The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obamas Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And thats really bad news for kids at South Carolinas Socastee High School. Theyve just learned they will no longer be allowed...

    People either love Chick-Fil-A or hate it ever since the companys president, Dan Cathy, espoused his religious beliefs regarding same-sex marriage. But love-it-or-hate-it, Chick-Fil-A seems to consistently go well-above the call of duty for good, upstanding Americans and the communities surrounding each restaurant. The town of Griffin, Georgia was mourning the loss of Police Officer Kevin Jordan who was killed in the line of duty. According to Mad World News, Jordan was shot five times in the back while trying to make an arrest at a local Waffle House. He was an Army veteran, a dedicated member of the police...

    Over at The New York Times, Ashley Parker and Jonathan Martin take a look at the Chick-fil-A belt, an area covering thousands of miles of Southern suburbs and exurbs where new residents have little connection to the politics of the past. That hurts incumbents like Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) and Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), who could once count on the projects and federal money they brought home to their states for political points. The newly built communities where these new residents live Parker and Martin point to DeSoto County, Miss., and Henrico, Hanover and Chesterfield Counties, Va. are...
