    Chick-fil-A’s NYC debut full of customers and protesters

    Chick-fil-A has landed in New York — with much clucking and a mess of ruffled feathers.

    The fast-food chain is as notorious for its ultra-conservative Christian ownership as for its tasty fried chicken, so when the first waffle-cut potatoes hit the fryer on its first stand-alone Big Apple location in Herald Square on Saturday, eaters and protesters converged.

    As many as 200 hungry customers stretched throughout the day in a line extending down West 37th Street.

    The customers were heckled by about a dozen assorted vegans and gay and transgender rights activists, who were in turn heckled by a trio of born-again Christians.

    It was some gaggle.

    “We all feel love,” read one vegan’s poster, which showed a photo of two ducks, kissing. At one point there arose a chant: “Chickens do have feelings! Just like we do,” which was succeeded by another chant: “We’re here! We’re queer! Get used to it!”

    Then two women started kissing, prompting the three born-agains to begin shouting, “Repent your sins you homos!” and, oddly, “The rainbow is for Christians!”

    Meanwhile, customers rolled their eyes.

    “I mean, I disagree with the company’s values,” said James Blum, 23, a financial analyst from Manhattan.

    “But I’m just here for the chicken.”

    Chick-fil-A insists in its media fact sheet that it “does not have an opinion as an organization.”

    But CEO Dan Cathy ignited a firestorm of criticism in 2012, when he said he supported “biblical families.”

    Imagine if he said "fag" "faggot" "homo" and "you're so gay (in an insulting way)" for like 2 or 3 decades on a top rated radio show that aired in major cities...

    Yes New Yorkers attack a business that gives good jobs to people. Hopefully Chik-Fil-A will close and it'll be replaced by a porn shop, the stuff NYC is supposed to have.

    Ever been to a Chik-Fil-A?

    They treat you nicely. The stores are very clean. The food is tasty.

    These things are repellent to Libs.

    This. Years ago Walmart wanted to build in a run down section of Inglewood, CA. that would have brought many needed jobs to the area, but there were enough protests by some union, that it never got built.

    What are they doing that is narrow minded? They are just selling a good product. It is others who want to shut them down and can't.

    You are too smart to fall for the crap that they are the narrow minded ones.

    I guess I'm reacting to the narrow minded Christians I've had the misfortune to know. I have a dear friend who is gay and I'd hate for anyone to discriminate against her

    Why would this ass clown owner express his idiot opinions only to alienate half his customers.. First rule of business be neutral and have no opinions.
