    Chick-fil-A's 'cave' on gay issue stirs new backlash

    :clap2:
    Chick-fil-A's apparent decision to stop giving money to anti-gay groups and not engage in social or political debates has sparked another heated discussion -- and new backlash -- on its Facebook page from those who say the company has "caved in."

    The report of the company's about-face comes from a Chicago rights lobby, The Civil Rights Agenda, that says Alderman Proco "Joe" Moreno has confirmed that the fast-food company will no longer give money to anti-gay organizations and has clarified in an internal document that it will "treat every person equally, regardless of sexual orientation."

    The move comes two months after Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy caused an uproar -- followed by boycotts and counter-boycotts -- by saying his company was "guilty as charged" of supporting the biblical definition of the family unit.

    The gays eat a lot of chicken, apparently.
