• Hoo-Boy … Is In-N-Out Burger the Next Target of the Chick-fil-A Treatment?

    Surge Summary: The owner of In-N-Out Burger is an outspoken Christian, promoting and financing good works and openly proclaiming her faith in Jesus Christ. So, of course she’s taken some heat – and might be in for more if patterns among the secular Left hold.

    Lynsi Snyder has apparently had some troubled patches over the course of her life. She came to faith in Jesus Christ, and He helped her and changed her life. Like many Christians, she wants to tell others about it.

    Oh, yeah: Forbes estimates her net worth at more than $3 billion and she’s owner of the successful and expanding fast-food chain In-N-Out Burger.  So …

    USA Today’s Brett Molina reports,

    In-N-Out Burger owner Lynsi Snyder gave a rare interview where she talked about her Christian faith and explained why the company prints Bible verses on some of its packaging.

    In a Christian Post interview, Snyder admitted her father’s death at a young age and three failed marriages played a material role in her embrace of Christianity.

    In the depths of her devastation, Snyder came to a life-changing realization: “I finally found that the deep need in my heart can only be filled by Jesus and my identity in Him,” she told The Christian Post.

    Instead of allowing tragic circumstances to define her future, Snyder decided to surrender her life to Christ and dedicate her time, energy, and talent to glorify Him.

    “I have learned so much through my broken relationships along with the ups and downs that come through marriage,” she said. “I’ve been the one to hurt, and I’ve been hurt. I have gained insight and growth through both sides of the coin.”

    Molina writes:

    One way the fast-food chain has expressed its faith is through its packaging. Consumers may have noticed “John 3:16” printed on soda cups.

    “It was my Uncle Rich who put the Bible verses on the cups and wrappers in the early ‘90s, just before he passed away,” Snyder tells The Christian Post. “He had just accepted the Lord and wanted to put that little touch of his faith on our brand.”

    Snyder told The Christian Post she expanded the Bible-promoting effort in recent years by printing the verses on coffee cups and french fry containers as well, adding Proverbs 24:16 (“ … the wicked shall fall into mischief”) to the fries container and Luke 6:35 (“But love ye your enemies, and do good”) to coffee cups.

    The Christian Post:

    Today, Snyder incorporates the biblical principles of trust, care, coaching and excellence into her role as owner of In-N-Out, founded by her grandparents, Harry and Esther Snyder, in 1948. She told CP that she strives to “maintain what we’ve started with: Not compromising the quality of product, service, or standards. … Snyder is also a proponent of servant leadership, a principle the heiress said she’s been ‘pushing for years now.’”

    Also important: When she’s not running In-N-Out, Snyder says she works on her ministry, Army of Love; which, according to its Facebook page, is a non-profit established “to minister directly to, and provide resources and referrals for, people in need.”

    Driven by a desire to help build the Kingdom of God, Snyder launched the ministry Army of Love, which she told CP stemmed from a “vision borne in a painful time in my life.”

    But, alas, that’s not the end of the story …

    In-N-Out found itself the target of a call for boycott last year after it was revealed the company had donated thousands of dollars to the California Republican Party.

    However, Fortune magazine noted that the company also donated to a political action committee supporting Democratic candidates.

    So, is the In-N-Out Burger chain the next target for the Chick-fil-A treatment? Targeted for destruction for the crime of being Christian and conservative in public?

    Sure hope not – but I won’t be surprised in the least if that sorry situation develops.

    Pray for the good people at In-N-Out Burger.
