http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1896580.htmlCould Chick-fil-A be turning over a new leaf?
A Chicago-based lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) advocacy group reports that the restaurant chain -- which was at the epicenter of a media firestorm this summer after its president confirmed his company's anti-gay stance -- has agreed to cease donations to right-wing groups that oppose same-sex marriage.
In a press release, the Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) cites Alderman Moreno as confirming that Chick-fil-A officials declared in an internal document that the company "will treat every person equally, regardless of sexual orientation." TCRA reportedly served as an advisor to Alderman as he negotiated these concessions with Chick-fil-A executives, though details of exactly what those negotiations entailed remain unclear.
As an aside, I note that the earlier Chik-Fil-A thread was closed by Jumbo, with the admonition: "Don't start another one on this topic for at least a month unless there's some really huge news. " It's been more than a month, and I think this is (may be) really huge news (admittedly, it's kind of unclear what exactly happened).
