A New Yorker article is under fire for calling Chick-fil-A "creepy" and criticizing what the author calls the chain's "pervasive Christian traditionalism."
On Friday, The New Yorker published an article with the headline "Chick-fil-A's Creepy Infiltration of New York City." In the piece, writer Dan Piepenbring examines the growth of Chick-fil-A in New York City— where the chicken chain has four locations — and found the expansion to be a culturally dangerous one.
Chick-fil-A's "arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism," Piepenbring writes. Piepenbring argues that the chain's sense of community rings false, and he takes issue with Chick-fil-A's cow mascot.
Many found Piepenbring's argument that the chain was working to perpetuate Christian values to be unconvincing.
While the chain closes on Sunday and displays Bible verses in its Atlanta headquarters, Chick-fil-A does not proselytize or explicitly discuss religion in any locations.
