n a letter to a Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno from the WinShape Foundation, a non-profit created by Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy, the charitable arm of the chicken purveyor has agreed to review "the multimillion-dollar donations the company gives to anti-gay marriage activists and other groups with 'political agendas.'" Moreno had vowed to block the construction of a new Chick-fil-A in his ward after Cathy said in July that he "supports the biblical definition of the family unit." The WinShape Foundation has a "stated philosophy" of not donating to organizations with political agendas, but it has donated to groups like Family Research Council and Alliance Defense Fund, which are both opposed to same-sex marriage. Moreno also said that Chick-fil-A has agreed to include sexual orientation in its anti-discrimination policy.
