As you may have read, New York City considers Chick-fil-A to be enough of a threat that they are banning the restaurant from NYC. The threat? The owner is a Christian and to the NYC city council, Christianity doesn't represent their values. Pretty much anything else is fine, but Christianity is a danger to the citizens of New York City. If you have ever been to a Chick-fil-A, if you were there on a slow day and you were paying attention, you might notice that the radio station was tuned to a Christian music station, and that they are not open on Sunday. That's about it, but that's enough to strike fear in the hearts of the New York City council. When I lived in North Carolina, one of the stores that I worked was near a Chick-fil-A, so I would usually come an hour early and get a breakfast burrito before work, and get some reading done. If you brought the subject up, it was likely that the person behind the counter would be familiar with Christian topics, but they don't refuse to hire non-Christian employees, and no one preaches to you while you're ordering a sandwich. Generally, the music that is played quietly is such that you have to pay attention, or be familiar with the songs, to recognize the music as being Christian music. When they opened a Chick-fil-A in Bangor a few years ago, a few token idiots picketed the place the first day, but the crowds of customers was so large that most people probably never noticed them. That store continues to be hugely busy, for some reason. That said, although I am a Christian, I rarely eat at the Bangor Chick-fil-A - certainly not because the owner is a Christian, but because I am not a big fan of chicken sandwiches, chicken nuggets, or anything else they have on the menu, and because the place is way too crowded for me. If I'm in Bangor overnight, I'll sometimes go there for breakfast because their breakfast burritos and sandwiches are okay, but they don't have anything on the lunch menu that I like. Obviously, others don't feel that way because there is always a crowd there. Both the drive-through and walk-in lines are long, and nearly half the people at the tables have children who annoy me.
