Chick-fil-A Libeled Again: Chicago alderman CLAIMS he strikes an agreement with Chick-fil-A PA Sees As Attempt To Subvert Chic-Fil-A Customer Loyalty
The Atlanta Journal Constituion reports:
"A Chicago alderman who had threatened to block Chick-fil-A from opening a store in his community says he will no longer stand in the chicken chain's way after company leaders agreed to create policies that support the gay, lesbian and transgendered community.
Proco "Joe" Moreno said in a statement Tuesday that Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A has placed "in a company document" (our quotes) an agreement that directs its employees to treat people of all backgrounds with " honor, dignity and respect " regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation and gender.
The chain also said it would refrain from engaging in political or social debates.
Chick-fil-A leaders did not immediately return phone calls to verify that such an agreement had been struck.
Public Advocate takes note that the statement is the same statement as Chick-fil-a made in July and not much has
changed. The key words "in a company document" mean it is a private letter.
The Chicago alderman has made this up and contrived it based on a repeat of a boilerplate statement made months ago.
When ABC News requested clarification from Chick-fil-A on the policies that Moreno says are new, the company resent a statement from July, when the controversy about its traditional marriage support first erupted. Unquote
