The new Puritanism: Chick-fil-A and boycotts
I had planned to avoid the Chick-Fil-A brouhaha for the reason Sarah Pulliam Bailey lists here: seriously, people, this is news? In case you’ve missed it, Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sundays. They’re not exactly the most liberal group and have been that way since the beginning.
But now Chicago is doubling down on Boston’s wariness about letting in new restaurants, all because Dan Cathy said–well, what exactly did he say again? Apparently not what the media reported. But then no one needs details when the fury’s afoot.
