Yummm.. I must visit Chick-Fil-A again some time soon; but tomorrow I'll have to look for Fish-Fil-A!

Arby's Fish filet sandwich, if they sell it in your area outside of Lent, is better than McD's. Much thicker filet.

I grew up in the South, so I've eaten it my whole life, and living in Atlanta, there's one every few miles. It's fast food, so I won't pretend it's fine dining, but it has to be on the short list for best national fast food chain in terms of quality. Their employees seem to be well-treated they are unfailingly polite, and their restaurants tend to be quite clean in my experience. Their chicken biscuits are a good fast food breakfast.
O most holy Virgin, hope of Christians, with the heavenly hosts unceasingly entreat God, to Whom thou gavest birth in manner past understanding and recounting, that He grant remission of sins and amendment of life unto all of us who with faith and love ever honor thee.

I'm a health nut and restrict my food to pastured meats and eggs, home grown fruits and veg, raw milk, etc. but even I eat Chick fil A!  lol   Delicious!
They shall not be confounded in the evil time; and in the days of famine they shall be filled

As Kaese said, it's discipline and not doctrine.
  Wow I am ignorant-had no idea of this concept.

It is discipline, but worth mentioning that it is universal in the ancient churches Roman, Byzantine, Coptic, Syriac, Armenian, etc.; Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Assyrian Church of the East all observe Friday as a day of penance. The Eastern Churches, I believe universally, also observe Wednesday as a penitential day, and the restrictions are much stricter fish, eggs, and dairy are all out on both days. It is discipline, so it is not binding on those not belonging to the Church, but it is not mere discipline, as if it were a matter of indifference, and it has been an unwise change to (largely) do away with it.

Ignoring the health concerns (real or not), Chik-Fil-A is delicious.  I grew up with it in Florida and loved it.  I left the USA a long time ago and some of the things I miss most are Chik-Fil-A, Chipotle and Checkers.

My wife is Chinese and when we visited the US I took her to Chik-Fil-A.  She took a bite and said it was gross, I happily ate the rest for her.  A few hours later back at the hotel she said "Honey, can we go get some more of that chicken and those burritos?"  Hah!  We went back, got both, and had a memorable and delicious dinner.  Often times its the small simple things like this that leave the best memories.

Yes, but the point is non-Catholics are not bound to Canon Law on this point. I was a bit loose with my phrasing earlier, so I should clarify that non-Catholics can be bound to Canon Law, i.e., Eucharistic disciplines, marriage to a Catholic, etc.

To analogize it, it would be like a gentile eating pork in 2BC. Not a problem.
