Story by Kate Sosin, courtesy the Windy City Times:

Illinois LGBT policy organization The Civil Rights Agenda (TCRA) fought back against Chick-fil-A in what some have jokingly deemed "the chicken war."

The organization has filed complaints against Chick-fil-A, alleging that the franchise violated the Illinois Human Rights Act when its chief operating officer, Dan Cathy, made statements against gay marriage.

The complaint comes a day after Chicago Republicans filed a complaint against Ald. Proco Joe Moreno, who vowed to block the chain from opening in his ward due to Cathy's homophobic comments. The Republican complaint argues that Moreno violated the Illinois Human Rights Act by stating he would deny a business a permit based on the expressed religious beliefs of its COO.
