Skip to comments.The Cult of Chick-fil-A

Yadkowski, 33, came to Chick-fil-A when he was living in a group foster home created by Chick-fil-A founder and chairman S. Truett Cathy. "I tell the kids, 'This is not just selling sandwiches; it pays for your upbringing,'" says Yadkowski, a hardworking, happily married Southern Baptist who plans to work with Chick-fil-A for life.
But Danielle Alderson, 30, a Baltimore operator, says she can't hire a good manager who, say, moonlights at a strip club because it would irk the company. "We are watched very closely by Chick-fil-A," she says. "It's very weird."
Is it legal? There are no federal laws that prohibit companies from asking nosy questions about religion and marital status during interviews.
Aziz Latif, a former Chick-fil-A restaurant manager in Houston, sued the company in 2002 after Latif, a Muslim, says he was fired a day after he didn't participate in a group prayer to Jesus Christ.

and here we go.....
Build a bridge, Emily, you whiny loser.
‘Is it legal?” Um, sweets, We the People can start a business and hire anyone we want. It is called FREEDOM. You might look that up.
They actually do not get it. They don’t get it at all. We, their perceived enemies, aren’t just a few Christians they’ve captured and placed before the lions in sport in the Coliseum. Probably 100 million or more Americans, Americans tired of perverts, tired of undeserving minority preferences, tired of liberal madness, tired of sloth, avarice and greed.
CFA’s advocacy, shown by the support they’ve gotten isn’t purely a Christian thing - it’s decency, morals, and values - something the liberals don’t have and therefore cannot understand.
You can prohibit your employees from smoking tobacco even off work hours.
In 2004/2005 there were liberal owned software firms that blacklisted those who'd voted for Bush.
There is no "hate" code for discriminating against someone's politics (race, creed, color, sex, and in some markets "sexual preference").
This crap from Forbes?
CFA should look very closely at any operator who thinks hiring a stripper for a management job (or ANY job) would be a good idea.
Oh, now we hear about stuff like this? Now that the Left has a target (let's dig up dirt on CFA!)? The Dems and their propaganda arm (the "news" media) are getting very good at digging up dirt on their enemies (or making it up when they can't find any real stuff).
Someday, enough people are going to wake up and ask, "Why is it only on one side of the political spectrum that the media can dig up dirt?"
"They screen prospective operators for their loyalty, wholesome values and willingness to buy into Chick-fil-A's in-your-face Christian credo..."
Slanted article, anyone?
It’s not surprising. I recently applied for a job in a business that is owned by the Southern Baptists and they wanted you to declare if you had “an association with alcohol”. I went by the store to ask some employees for a clarification and was told it isn’t a big deal they just want to make sure your behavior won’t embarrass them as a Christian employer.
I was still put off a bit by the question. I sometimes have a drink but I’ve never been drunk.
BTW, this article is 5 years old.
As far as I’m concerned we need to go back to the days when a business could refuse service to ANYONE for any reason. Someone will be along shortly to inform me that I’m a racist but I really couldn’t care less. A truly free market would quickly fill the niches.
Anti-Christian bigot alert.
Maybe he should ask that question to the Obama Administration concerning Secret Service duty in Columbia. It looks like their off-duty activities ultimately hurt the image of the entire Secret Service.
How long before Steve Forbes yanks it?
Get a grip clown posse. Don't like Chic-Fil-A don't eat there. It these neo-Facist idiots who think they can dictate their political dogmas to everyone else that are the threat here, not Chic-Fil-Al.
