Remember when the Chicago alderman dug in and said he would oppose the building of a new Chick-fil-A in his community because of its anti-gay stances, specifically statements made by Dan Cathy that he opposes gay marriage? 

Well, that alderman, Joe Moreno, says now he's fine with the Atlanta-based restaurant building in his neighborhood after he says the chain agreed to include an LGBT  inclusion statement in its internal documents. More importantly, he says, he also was told by Chick-fil-A officials that Winshape would no longer donate to anti-gay causes, according to a story in the Chicago Tribune. Winshape, the nonprofit organization of Chick-fil-A, has donated millions to anti-gay causes over the years giving rise to LGBT anger and boycotts.
