Ark encounter

You haven't. Via their website:

"Our founder, Truett Cathy, made the decision to close on Sundays in 1946 when he opened his first restaurant in Hapeville, Georgia. He has often shared that his decision was as much practical as spiritual. He believes that all franchised Chick-fil-A® Operators and Restaurant employees should have an opportunity to rest, spend time with family and friends, and worship if they choose to do so. That's why all Chick-fil-A Restaurants are closed on Sundays. It's part of our recipe for success."


(Edit: Dang it, Terp beat me by a hair!)

There's also a restaurant based in North Carolina called Cookout.

It has scripture on their cups and play Christian music. They built one right down the road from EKU and you can't get near the place from 5 to 7 because of every one eating there. It's open 7 days a week.

Secular college students don't seem to mind. If the service and product are good people will come.

As stated in my edited post I did a bit of research and discovered that as well as the purpose of the music questions. I believe they should have every right to play whatever music they want by the way, but from a business stand point I think it is smart for them to not have the lyrics.

The Chick-fil-a near where I live still plays Christian music with lyrics inside their restaurant. It's kind of nice to sit, relax, and eat your food without hearing music with cursing or sexual overtones. Especially when you're with your family.

Chic Fil A, like all businesses, is changing with the times. When Mr. Cathy passes, the younger ownership group has expressed a desire to go to a 7 day operation. Much like a certain yummy ice cream out of Cincy (the old man resisted all urges to expand until just recently, when pressured by the younger generation, who realized expansion=profit). Indy just got a store as of 2 weeks ago with 3-5 more on the way in the next 2-3 years. Change is good.

Some is. Some isn't. Skyline had a major expansion into Florida years ago. It flopped. Only now is a reentry there underway.

Six Flags way overexpanded. And flopped. The old management was escorted out of the building by the creditors.

Change is change. Not all change is good. And not changing is not always good, either.

I'm glad there is money being spent on this giant biblical boat park. I mean, there's not a heroin epidemic in the state of Kentucky or anything. And if there was, I'm sure this large sum of cash would be used appropriately.

Kind of like the crippling debt of the country and the lavish living conditions/ spending habits that our lovely D.C. politicians take part in?

Edit: It isn't limited to D.C. though...
