I agree with those who say that this isn't Fundy. As for the music... Well, there are a lot of places that I like to eat at where I don't care for the music. After all, there aren't enough restaurants that are willing to play hard rock or heavy metal. But, if I like the food, I still eat there - and I just tune the music out.

There's nothing really fundie about this. It's not like they're WBC Pizza or anything. There's a line, and I don't think this girl has crossed it. She's happy, and the restaurant isn't doing anything offensive. Gotta vote "meh" on this one.

Just don't sell bacon for topping because then god will strike you with lightning or make Obama the manager or something.
Sounds like just the right place to preach the good news of Allah.

I'll take the Cheese-Bacon Special, but keep the god, and add peperonnis intead.

I can get behind the not serving alcohol. Never touch the stuff.

I see no problem here. If I do not care for a restaurant for some reason, I have the option of not going.
If some one were telling my children that they had to eat there or else they would face eternal damnation, THEN I would have a problem.

It's not a mean-spirited or intolerant or obliviously sexual quote or anything, but I still think it's a little delusional.
You don't have a higher calling just because your Pizza Hut knockoff has a crucifix on the wall. You just...don't.

This seems to be little more than an irritatingly enthusiastic theme restaurant.
Unless they reserve the right to throw holy water on customers that don't say Grace I'm missing the stupid in this.

I don't think anyone is disputing that Naomi is, in all likelihood, a evangelical Christian. Speaking for myself I'd say that this particular quote is not fundie.
They're creepy and weird to us over here also, but so many of them are creepy, weird, obnoxious and mean that it's hard to get worked up over a ditzy broad who just dreams of slinging cheese sticks for Jeezus.
I'm not exactly sure what "stuff" you mean by "it's not much of a stretch for other stuff," but the "stretch" is where we're giving this chick the benefit of the doubt.

Because who says theological indoctrination and brainwashing has to stop after Sunday school?

"...we play either country or Christian radio."
In that case I'll be sure to bring my ear buds and plug into my iPhone.

Huh~... a post that doesn't have the fundie fires set to cremation. This is new!

To be fair, if hard rock or heavy metal is your musical preference - it's gonna be hard to find a restaurant that plays that kind of music.

They should open up a Hell Pizza across the street.

I have to agree with the hundred or so other people who said this isn't fundie. The girl sounds a little over-enthused about having a job, but then again, in this economy perhaps she should be that happy.

I think sheltered people without a lot of real life fundie experience aren't seeing the fundie, and that's to be expected. That's what this kind of piece is designed to avoid. But this cock slobbering slave girl who loves Jesus attitude is pretty much PR speak for "I am a psychopath who uses religion to throw people off guard and hide my crimes, behind closed doors I'm starving dogs and beating my kids because they're sinners."
Oh, look; an anti-theist who thinks anyone that doesn't share his fears is merely naive about the secret evils lurking within the heart of an over-eager 18-year-old. She likes Christian music and works at a "Christian" pizza place? Why then surely she must beat animals. Idjit.

This...is really cute.
1/10/2012 8:47:23 PM
Well said. That comment would probably score higher on the Fundie Index if we put it up for voting than what it was criticizing.
Just add the line "[In response to a person saying they are happy starting work at a Christian restaurant franchise]", and you've got a fundie quote.
I'm still not sure how this quote got up on the site... But I'm glad to see that most responses were sane and the score is in the deep negative, as it should be.

Wait for it, wait for it...
Do you want fries with that?
1/11/2012 11:50:33 AM
Nana's Pizza near me is the same. The sign in the window, instead of daily specials, has Bible verses. Nana must be a barrel of laughs to work for.

Don't see a problem with this at all.
I even like Chick-Fil-A
1/12/2012 12:21:37 AM
I guess it was only a matter of time until America combined church and fast food. Fuckin' A, do you REALLY have to be eating AND worship at the same time?
Whatever, this country has become a farce of itself and I can no longer care.
1/12/2012 2:17:24 PM
Seems harmless. The only thing I would care about is if their pizza is good or not.
1/12/2012 11:10:10 PM
The bad guy
Christian restaurant you say? Then I assume homeless people get to eat for free.
To everyone saying she's not fundie, technically she is. She's just a fundie in embryonic development. Give it a decade and she'll be spewing gradually installed hatred for gays, scientists, academia, minorities, etc. Eventually they all turn rotten.
