An alderman has withdrawn his objections to location of a Chick-fil-A in Chicago because, he says, the company has made a franchise agreement not to donate money to organizations that oppose gay marriage and to include in company documents a statement of respect for all sexual orientations
Does this gesture to inclusiveness and equality make Chick-fil-A unacceptable to the hordes who swarmed the restaurant in August? Acceptable to those who've shunned it?
"Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena," Chick-fil-A wrote in an emailed statement to NBC News
So. Who would you say won the Mike Huckabee-inspired National Day of Self-righteous Waving of Chicken Nuggets in the Face of Gay People?
PS — A prominent gay rights group urges a bit more specifity by Chick-fil-A, for safety's sake.
