The tolerant left is only tolerant when we follow their rules. Groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter scream and riot while preaching peace and tolerance. An example of this can be seen in New York with anti-Christians who are obsessed with the Christian owned business, Chick-fil-A. How dare Chick-fil-A do one thing in New York that they hate. This will blow your mind.
So what egregious error did Chick-fil-A make in New York? Well, the prominent Christian-owned business had the audacity to open a store in Manhattan, that’s what. And that’s all it took for New Yorker Magazine to trash all Christians in America.
“I wrote about Chick-fil-A’s presence in NYC: awash with cash, Christ, and evangelizing Cows,” tweeted Dan Piepenbring, who authored an article in the New Yorker, titled, “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City.”

Just imagine if Chick-Fil-A was Muslim owned. You think this Dan Piepenbring would dare write, “I wrote about Chick-fil-A’s presence in NYC: awash with the Quran, Allah, and evangelizing ISIS terrorists.” Yeah, we all know Christians are the new hated group, we should be exterminated, according to these haters.
If you don’t think there is a war against Christianity in America, you haven’t been paying close attention. Piepenbring wrote, “New York has taken to Chick-fil-A. One of the Manhattan locations estimates that it sells a sandwich every six seconds, and the company has announced plans to open as many as a dozen more storefronts in the city. And yet the brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism.”
He goes on, “Its headquarters, in Atlanta, is adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet. Its stores close on Sundays. Its C.E.O., Dan Cathy, has been accused of bigotry for using the company’s charitable wing to fund anti-gay causes, including groups that oppose same-sex marriage.”
How dare Dan Cathy practice his faith, and how dare he use his hard-earned income to donate to causes that back what his faith represents. Many anti-Christian bigots echoed the sick sentiments in the New Yorker. But more Americans on Twitter thought Piepenbring had gone too far.
David Marcus tweeted, “It’s a freakin chicken sandwich, what’s wrong with you people. Do you have an issue with devout Muslims operating Halal carts? Is that an ‘infiltration?”‘

Peter Hasson followed that up with this tweet: “Trying to imagine the New Yorker blasting a thriving restaurant chain for its ‘pervasive Muslim traditionalism’ or ‘pervasive Jewish traditionalism.'”

“Trish C The Dish” tweeted, “This article is a load of crap. Just eat the food and enjoy or don’t eat the food. Your choice!” She had over 2,500 likes on this post proving this anti-Christian garbage isn’t as popular as these radical leftist’s think.

“Is there anything funnier than the people who feel perpetually threatened by a Chick-fil-A?” tweeted T. Becket Adams, a reporter for the Washington D.C. Examiner.

“Momza83” tweeted, “Haha. Oh NO those Christians are at it again. Relax NY sit down have a sandwich. It’ll be ok.”

Piepenbring said the Chick-fil-A cows were an “insurgency.” He wrote, “Today, the Cows’ ‘guerrilla insurgency’ is more of a carpet bombing. New Yorkers are under no obligation to repeat what they say. Enough, we can tell them. NO MORE.”
When our Founding Fathers included in the First Amendment, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” it is turned on its head by leftists. They weren’t scared of religion infiltrating society, they were scared of the state interfering with the free exercise of our religion.
Barack Obama did just that when he forced Christian owned businesses to provide insurance that covered abortions and birth control. So, the Founding Fathers were right. It took over 200 years, but finally, the state interfered as they foresaw. President Trump has undone Obama’s Gestapo tactics at the Department of Health and Human Services, thank God.
But the anti-Christian sentiment remains and are a large part of the left’s “resistance.” Chick-fil-A hatred is just one example of this bigotry. A chicken joint is just a chicken joint, and if these idiots are so offended, they have the freedom to never step foot inside a Chick-fil-A ever. They need to keep their hatred to themselves. This is still the United States, not North Korea.
