Chick-Fil-A is crap

Folks, let's all take a collective breath before we begin tripping over ourselves as we condemn Chick-Fil-A for being disgustingly evil when it comes to its politics. 

Chick-Fil-A made no bones about what kind of an organization they were when they would close up shop on Sundays so we might all honor The Lord in our own non-chicken-eating ways. They also were pretty brazen about only hiring "Christian, values driven Americans"(1)

When I was working at Ye Old Paragraph Factory in 2007, I covered the opening of the Olathe Chick-Fil-A as a feature for the business section. Mind you, this opening included a DJ, an all-night campout and all the free gross bits of lamp-warmed chicken you could eat.

There was no secret back then that Chick-Fil-A took a less than liberal stance on tolerance and equality.  But, holy hell, that did not matter to the crowd of people in Olathe that summer night.

I will admit that I have no master taste when it comes to chicken... but I will never see the reason why so many people get so rabid about greasy chicken and pickles on a bun.

I'll say it: The food there sucks. Chick-Fil-A sucks.

While I am at it, Backyard Burger and Culver's food is also crap.

You heard me!

I'm not really sure what your straw mattress (and, really: who uses those anymore? spend the cash and get a normal bed) has to do with chicken sandwiches, but your larger point is axiomatic -

Fast food, by and large, sucks.
