Chick-fil-A exiting fight against gay rights

WHO WON? Chick-fil-A will drop supporting groups that fight gay marriage, despite the day of support organized by Mike Huckabee at the chicken chain.
  • WHO WON? Chick-fil-A will stop supporting groups that fight gay marriage, despite the day of national solidarity inspired by Mike Huckabee at the chicken chain last month.

An alderman has withdrawn his objections to location of a Chick-fil-A in Chicago because, he says, the company has made a franchise agreement not to donate money to organizations that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?

More from NBC:

"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.
