St. Louis, MO (KPLR) The Chick-Fil-A restaurant chain is distancing itself from anti-gay marriage statements made by the company’s president. A Chicago alderman vowed to fight the construction of a new Chick-Fil-A over the company president’s statement on same sex marriage. Chick-Fil-A now says it respects everybody’s views. Civil rights groups would like to see a stronger stance. The alderman says, “for the first time, Chick-Fil-A has changed their practices and promised the workplace protections that all of our citizens deserve, instead of being a company that promotes discrimination, Chick-Fil-A has agreed to move forward.”
