New York Lawmakers Could Force Chick-fil-A to Open on Sundays

Chick-fil-A is under attack by Democrats and Alphabet Activists in New York.

Lawmakers are considering legislation that would force the popular chicken restaurant to open its doors on Sundays.

“While there is nothing objectionable about a fast food restaurant closing on a particular day of the week, service areas dedicated to travelers is an inappropriate location for such a restaurant,” the legislation states.

It’s been a common practice for Chick-fil-A to close on Sundays so staffers can attend church services and spend time with their families. The company is owned by an evangelical Christian family.

They have long been the targets of anti-Christian activists who oppose the family’s religious beliefs.

The New York legislation would require all food service facilities at rest stops to remain open seven days a week. And the bill is intentionally targeting Chick-fil-A.

Spectrum News reports that Chick-fil-A’s presence at travel plazas across the state has “generated frustration over the Sunday policy and the company ownership’s support of anti-LGBTQ+ organizations.”

Democrat Assemblyman Tony Simone said in a statement that “not only does Chick-Fil-A have a long shameful history of opposing LGBTQ rights, it simply makes no sense for them to be a provider of food services in busy travel plazas,” and added “a company, that by policy, is closed on one of the busiest travel days of the week should not be the company that travelers have to rely on for food services.”

State Sen. Michelle Hinchey, also a Democrat, told Spectrum News, “We need to ensure that [rest stops] remain reliable hubs, especially on the busiest travel days of the year. If one of the main food options closes for just one day, it not only inconveniences travelers but also puts a significant strain on the food spots that are open, leading to longer wait times.”

I’m confused. I thought they wanted to shut down Chick-fil-A? But now they want it open seven days a week? I really do wish the Alphabet Activists would make up their minds.

To this day, I’ve never understood why a plump juicy chicken breast tucked between hot buttered buns ruffles so many feathers in the LGBT world.

As the Good Book sayeth: Woe be to whosoever smiteth the official Chicken of our Lord. Verily, Verily.
