Bloomberg Signs Off on Chick-Fil-A in NYC
On Sundays, Chick-fil-A closes its door to respect the Sabbath - the day God gave mankind to rest after a long week. The assembly line of chicken sandwiches stops its engines and customers take the day off from consuming the famous Chick-fil-A sauce. Along the Bible Belt, where a majority of the Atlanta-based fried chicken restaurants are located, the organization not only feeds the area's God-fearing demographic but feeds into it, too.
Closest #ChickFilA to San Francisco is 40 miles away & I strongly recommend that they not try to come any closer.-- Edwin Lee (@mayoredlee) July 26, 2012
To give credit to the other side, it's comforting to know that the major voices behind Chick-fil-A just so happen to be former Presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum. The notorious Santorum tweeted yesterday that, hey, if his son enjoyed the food, why the hell does it matter if the organization believes in the "biblical definition of marriage":
With two of my boys, Enjoying chick-in-strips and an awesome peach shake at Chick-fil-A. See you here next Wednesday!-- Rick Santorum (@RickSantorum) July 25, 2012
