Chick-fil-A says it will stop funding anti-gay groups, according to Chicago's Joe Moreno, the alderman whose opposition of a proposed Chick-fil-A on the Windy City's north side helped fuel the controversy surrounding the fast food chain.

The company has pledged to include a statement of respect for all sexual orientations in a memo to staffers and says that WinShape Foundations, its not-for-profit arm, would no longer contribute money to groups that oppose gay marriage.

Last week, Conan O'Brien unveiled Chaz the Intolerant Chicken, a new mascot for fast food company Chick-fil-A to use after a key sponsor, The Jim Henson Company, cut ties with them following management's anti-gay marriage comments.

Wednesday, with the story going full steam - it was Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, in which fans and conservative figures like Sarah Palin threw their support behind the embattled restaurant chain - Chaz returned to Conan's TBS show.
