Chick-fil-A Changes Public Anti-Gay Stance?

Just days after our local wingnuts actually called the bigoted fast food company Chick-fil-A "heroes of truth" for their public anti-gay stance and donations to anti-gay organizations, the company has at least publicly changed it's policies.

Bowing to pressure from a Chicago Alderman and increasing public pressure and bad press, the company apparently has decided to change it's policies regarding their public anti-gay positions and donations by the non-profit, Winshape, funded by the fast food chicken joint.
After months of negotiations with Ald. Proco “Joe” Moreno over its anti-gay positions and donations, Chick-fil-A has agreed to cease donations from its non-profit charity to anti-gay organizations and issued a company-wide internal mandate calling for the equal treatment of all employees and customers.

WinShape, a non-profit funded by Chick-fil-A, has donated millions of dollars to anti-LGBT organizations — some classified hate groups — including Focus on the Family, according to The Civil Rights Agenda, which worked with Moreno and company executives in an advisory capacity as they negotiated to adopt new policies. Chick-fil-A did not respond to attempts to confirm the information.
What a concept, "equal treatment of all employees and customers". Too bad the culture at Chick-fil-A necessitated a memo reminding their employees of that ideal.
