Chick-fil-A Still A-Okay

Take heart! It appears reports of Chick-fil-A’s surrender were premature:

Contrary to reports first made by the gay-activist group The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) on Tuesday and later picked up by mainstream media outlets, Chick-fil-A and its charitable-giving arm, the WinShape Foundation, did not agree to stop making donations to groups that support the biblical definition of marriage in exchange for being allowed to open a franchise in Chicago.

My only problem with this is that they should have known that when Alderman Joe Moreno ended his opposition to their opening a store in Chicago, he and his allies would attempt to spin it — I mean, it’s a combination of Chicago politics with the most ruthless, unprincipled fringe of the gay movement. Unfortunately, Chick-fil-A didn’t have an answer ready — they didn’t respond to anyone (including me) for several days, allowing the anti-marriage groups to spread their lies and alarm Americans. After what happened in July, they should have put a PR firm on retainer — I hope they’ve done so now.

In any case, I have been, and will continue, eating dinner every Wednesday at Chick-fil-A.
