Chick-fil-A is making another statement about recent reports that it will stop giving money to groups that oppose gay marriage, but the company did not make any clearer whether it is still funding them.

Chick-fil-A's statement Thursday said: "part of our corporate commitment is to be responsible stewards of all that God has entrusted to us. Because of this commitment, Chick-fil-A's giving heritage is focused on programs that educate youth, strengthen families and enrich marriages, and support communities."

It did not say whether that includes gay marriages. The statement also says it is not the company's intent to support political or social agendas.

The company's owner set off a furor this summer when he reaffirmed his opposition to same-sex marriage. Long lines formed outside Chick-fil-A restaurants on an "appreciation day."
