    U.S.—Scholars working at top divinity schools across the country now believe that Esau traded his birthright for a spicy chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-A, not a bowl of soup or lentils as originally thought. "It never really made sense to us that he traded his birthright for lentils," said one expert working at Southern Seminary. "Who likes lentils? Lentils are gross. But do you know what would have made sense? If he came back from hunting and smelled that delicious, patented Chick-fil-A scent." "Man, it's about lunchtime," he added. "I'd give my birthright for a 12-count nugget right about now."

    AUSTIN, Texas — Chick-fil-A said Monday that it no longer plans to open a restaurant in the San Antonio airport, even though the Texas city relented after more than a year of legal wrangling that began when some city leaders opposed the fast-food chain getting a spot, citing donations made by company owners to anti-LGBTQ causes. “We are always evaluating potential new locations in the hopes of serving existing and new customers great food with remarkable service.” Chick-fil-A said in a statement. “While we are not pursuing a location in the San Antonio airport at this time, we are grateful...

    It’s been four and a half years since Chick-fil-A made the difficult decision to pull its fan-favorite col slaw side from menus, and its tang still lingers in our hearts and mouths. "For a long time, we were really hesitant to take anything off the menu because we couldn't bring ourselves to disappoint anybody," David Farmer, senior vice president of menu development for Chick-fil-A told Business Insider in 2016. "But as our sales volumes grew, it just wasn't feasible to keep adding to the menu without taking anything away." *Wipes eyes* Recognizing the pain the coleslaw’s loyal fanbase was experiencing,...

    Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy announced yesterday that his fast-food restaurant will be ending its long-standing policy on Sunday closure, but only for black people. "We are leading the way towards racial reconciliation in this country," Cathy said. "And everyone knows the best way to achieve racial reconciliation is to segregate black people and make them feel as awkward as possible. Chick-fil-A is dedicated to providing the blacks with a safe space so that they can be properly honored." Chick-fil-A will be providing racial justice training for all its employees. Sunday employees will all be required to wear traditional African Kente...

    White Christians should repent for racism and fight for their black brothers and sisters, Chick-fil-A's CEO urged, after weeks of protests over police brutality and the death of Rayshard Brooks. Cathy spoke about racism in America during a 70-minute roundtable discussion Sunday at Passion City Church in Atlanta. Brooks had been shot dead two days earlier by an Atlanta police officer in a Wendy's parking lot, sparking protests. "Most of us, white people, we're out-of-sight-out-of-mind oblivious to it," Cathy said about injustice against black Americans. "We cannot let this moment pass." The son of Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy said...

    Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy says white people should find black strangers, go up to them, and shine their shoes to show repentance for their sins of racism. He once bought 1,500 shoe brushes for his employees to shine strangers’ shoes to exhibit their remorse for racism, Cathy said Sunday during a panel discussion at Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia. By shining shoes, white Americans can express shame, embarrassment, humility and contrition, Cathy said.

    Twenty-six years ago, Morgan Stanley hired Marilyn Booker as their first diversity director, charged with overseeing corporate efforts from the firm’s New York City headquarters, a 685-foot, glass, Times Square skyscraper. Ten years ago, Booker left that post to work in their financial wealth management division. Seven months ago, Booker was fired.But that was before video aired of George Floyd’s death, and spreading, national protests escalated into riots, violence, church burning, monument defacing, and occupations. How quickly things change. Now Booker is leading a group of black women in suing the company that employed her for a quarter-century, charging that...

Whatever good you’ve done in the past is forgotten, cancelled. However deep and sincere your apology, it will never be enough. You must carry the shame for the rest of your days. Away with you!

    Chick-fil-A put out an updated version of its “Safe Service” guidelines for employees and guests on Friday, announcing new safety measures such as plexiglass partitions at registers, contact-less checkouts and suspending drink refills and playground areas for kids when dining rooms reopen for dine-in and carry-out service. Dine-in customers will have to follow social-distancing guidelines at tables, with some being blocked off to allow for proper spacing. Staff members are also being mandated to disinfect high-touch areas of the restaurant, including bathrooms, food prep stations and registers every half hour. Employees will also be required to undergo temperature checks before...

    A coupon is circulating via Facebook Messenger asking users to click or share a link in order to redeem 2 free adult meals from Chick-fil-A. Officials say it’s bogus. NewsChannel 6’s Shawn Cabbagestalk contacted representatives with the fast-food chain in order to confirm the offer. “This is not a legitimate Chick-fil-A offer,” Public Relations External Communications Representative Charnelle Wilson shared with Shawn via email. “We appreciate you checking,” she added. The hoax often requires you to share a website link or social media post, where you are taken to a “survey” that asks for personal information. Most times in order...

    Many have been worried that the November election will be compromised should shutdowns, lockdowns, and social distancing continue, as people won't be able to vote in person. Some have suggested voting by mail or via the internet, but these ideas seem terrible to other, smarter people. But democracy seems to have been saved at the last moment as Chick-fil-A has been contracted to run all the polling places this November with the company's efficient drive-thru system. By some estimates, everyone in the country could vote within about a half-hour with the lightning-fast process of Chick-fil-A voting. Best of all, Chick-fil-A...

    Sometimes, people need more than just a sandwich or a burger. After testing the concept in 2018, Chick-fil-A is bringing meal prep kits to participating locations nationwide. The move comes after the chain's restaurants were forced to shut down their dining rooms due to the coronavirus pandemic. With grocery stores also facing challenges due to panic-buying and social-distancing regulations, Chick-fil-A says the meals will also address challenges customers may be facing at dinner time.

    ATLANTA, GA—In an effort to help curb the spread of Coronavirus, Chick-fil-a has announced that it will temporarily be changing its advertising slogan from "Eat Mor Chikin" to "Eat Fewer Bats." The chicken sandwich chain will run public health ads and billboards with its iconic cow mascots reminding people to "eat fewer bats" and "have a delicious chicken sandwich instead." Chick-fil-A restaurants will also host "People Who Don't Eat Bats Appreciation Day," where people who come in and don't eat a bat get a free chicken sandwich.

    The city of San Antonio has spent at least $315,000 in legal fees after the city council voted to bar Chick-fil-A from opening a location in the San Antonio airport in March, according to calculations by KENS 5. The legal fees encompass two lawsuits and a federal investigation, and other invoices are pending, according to KENS 5. The San Antonio City Council voted to block the chain as an airport vendor due to the company's "legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior." The council also struck down a motion to reconsider the decision.

    Even though American culture warriors of the right are fighting what Tolkien called ‘the long defeat’, surrender in the Battle of Chick-fil-A was a monumental symbolic loss. That’s because the fast-food chain had become what psychology calls a ‘condensation symbol’: a phrase or entity that powerfully evokes a worldview, and usually calls forth strong emotions around it. Chick-fil-A sells fried chicken. When are chicken nuggets not mere morsels of battered and fried chicken? When LGBT activists transform them into sacraments of Bible-thumping wickedness, as they have done with enormous effectiveness since 2012. That was the year that Dan Cathy, CEO...

    Christian Animal Ethics reports Chick-fil-A "chickens are bred to grow so large, so quickly, that many of them suffer crippling leg deformities. Because their breasts grow abnormally large while their skeletons and other organs lag behind, their legs often break under the weight of their own bodies." Chickens at Chick-fil-A "factory farm suppliers don’t see the light of day or receive any exercise. Most have trouble breathing in the overcrowded, filthy conditions while many others suffer heart failure and chronic pain." To keep Chick-fil-A "chickens eating and growing as much as possible, their sleep is restricted by keeping the interior...

    Compassionless Chick-fil-A executives have made an Ebenezer Scrooge like decision to stop donating to The Salvation Army. Many desperately need the help the donation would have provided. The money for the donation would have come from Chick-fil-A customers. Thus Chick-fil-A customers could reverse the decision to stop donating "their" money to The Salvation Army. Chick-fil-A customers could eat at Chick-fil-A less often and donate the money they would have spent at Chick-fil-A to The Salvation Army.

    In the spring of 1997 my parents sat me down, told me it was time to get a job and nudged me to apply to Chick-fil-A. At first, I was uncertain about working in fast food, but I liked Chick-fil-A’s sandwiches and I embraced the company's biblical values. From setting up a Salvation Army Angel Tree to donating food for church events, I had no doubt this was a God-honoring company. As a regular churchgoer, it was a plus that I would never face the pressure to work on Sunday — so I applied and was hired. On my first...
