In spite of plenty of bad press the last several weeks, Chick-fil-A experienced record sales last Wednesday after Mike Huckabee declared it “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.” He called on advocates of so-called traditional marriage to visit the chain and support Dan Cathy’s conservative values with their wallets.
Two days later, gay rights activists had something else in mind.
Activists created their own counter-protest to Huckabee’s day of deep-fried solidarity by declaring last Friday Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A. Same-sex couples were invited to come out to Chick-fil-A, not spend a dime, and give the restaurant’s customers a public display of affection. Plenty of people accepted the challenge.
