"Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day," an event Wednesday in which supporters converged on the fast-food establishment to back its chief executive's controversial stance on gay marriage, is not the end of the controversy.

GLADD is planning a "National Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A" on Friday. As part of the event, couples are encouraged to go one of the chicken restaurant's locations and take a photo or video of themselves kissing.

"GLADD is planning a "National Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A" on Friday. As part of the event, couples are encouraged to go one of the chicken restaurant's locations and take a photo or video of themselves kissing."

This really is sounding increasingly silly after yesterday, IMO.

I think the homos lost the issue. This has become an issue of government vs freedom of choice for business owners (thanks to people like Bloomberg).

Will this occur before or after the gays eat lunch at CFA? You know they like CFA to.

And have some Christian tracts available to hand out to any homosexuals who show up.

Yes, I hope supporters from our side will be able to show up. Of course, they have made it only for a specific time ( 8 pm New York time, 7 central & 5 pacific - weird in itself.)

As I posted above, they have weirdly (from lack of courage?) slated it for 8 pm EST/7 central/5 pacific)-—so I hope they buy dinner at least before starting their tom-foolery.

They will probably ask their straight comrades to come along, too:
“Oh, I don’t know, I think I’ve got a bit of a headache…”
“What’s the problem, buddy? Are you harboring secret homophobic thoughts?”
“Oh no, no! Of course I will come along!”
“I didn’t think so!”

I’ll be back there on Friday. Are y’all with me? We need to give these people a good backdrop for their pictures. Also, to put the lie to their “homophobia” mantra. We’re NOT AFRAID OF THEM!!!

I do, too.

And man, was it long overdue!
I thought it’d never happen; I have been
waiting years for this backlash.

I would assume ChickfilA is private property from which protesters can be forcefully removed. And there is nothing wrong with everyone eating there twice in the same week. Keep in mind too, tomorrow will be the time when the media will consider this situation significant enough for their coverage.

"they have made it only for a specific time"

Perfect, it'll only take 20 cars/store to clog the parking lots and everyone can return home in short order.

I'd suggest that folks near DC should circle around the White House holding their sandwiches high every day at lunchtime.

They are a bunch or pervs. Always have been. Their mind is always on sex.

I’ve never seen a straight pride day and even if it existed I don’t think I’d see my mom dressed in a thong doing motions that are considered X-Rated on TV.

If they must have a gay pride day to celebrate their wierd lifestyle, why not do it in suits and ties and long dresses and ladies and gentlemen? Because they are sex maniac pervs who find pleasure acting out their sex desires in public... even with kids around. They’re sick. They ever do that in front of my children I would attempt to sue them for everything they have.

Why rate movies anymore if we are forced to see this on our own streets?

...because, after all, they just want acceptance. Right.

Cathy should call all his outlets late Thursday night and announce that CFA will be closed on Friday.

All employees will be paid for that day due to the long hours they put in yesterday.

Yes, I think all should be with you, because you’re right: Why lose momentum now, after such a victory on Wed.?

If I can’t make it I’m going encourage people I know who are nearer to CFAs to turn out if they can.

With the business they did yesterday, they could be closed on Friday...

But, as an interim measure, they could just close the lobby and do drivethru only.

Somehow, a national gross out day is suppose to get the nation to rally for their side? They really think turning Americas stomach is going to help their cause? Do they really think showing off a bunch of homosexuals licking each others faces is going to help their cause?
The only reason Americans made the mistake of giving homosexuals tolerance in the first place was the promise it would be kept in "the privacy of their own bedrooms" - they wouldn't have to look at it!

Uh....so, good luck with that national gross out day(not).

True enough. We should somehow make sure that those of us who support ChickfilA, are not counted as being among those supporting homosexuals.

If the crowd is large enough, the MSM will paint it as homosexual support.

It wasn’t that long ago the homo battle chant was to keep your nose out of the bedroom. Now the battle has left the bedroom and its all about shoving a particularly perverse lifestyle and belief system down everyone’s throat. From kiss-ins to attacking a parent’s ability to circumsize their newborn.

And they’re just gettng warmed up.

As I stood in line, I watched the workers. They were mostly young and clean cut, attractive. There were five registers running and as order filling duties required leaving the register, to make a peach shake for instance, the breech would instantly be filled by a person in reserve.

There were attitudinal looks of shear intensity as they went about the tasks of serving customers. Taped to each register were red font size 48 or so reminder...... It’s my Pleasure. That was the mission to serve customers and do so in a pleasurable manner. From my viewpoint they were succeeding.

Perhaps there should be some special reward for a job well done but a paid day off is a bit much. Employees should be prepared to jump into the fray to serve customers as a matter of course. The lessons learned that day about the values of team work, training, customer appreciation and being part of a once in a life time special event can not surpassed. It was a once in a lifetime event for most all of the staff that day.

They have to make it a specific time, because if they didn’t all gather together and do their “kiss in” all at once, nobody would notice or care. I commented to someone yesterday that, after all the homo kissing on tv sitcoms and movies, a “kiss in” is just not that shocking anymore to people. They’ve desensitized us to their own silly protest antics.

I have a feeling they will be doing a lot more than kissing in some states like CA.

I think some brave souls need to be ready with a camera to snap some pics of their actions and post it for all the world to see.

So I am going to go and buy a sandwhich. If they are kissing maybe I can get reaaaallll close and say how absolutely gross and disgusting it is while my mouth is full of delicious chicken. Spewing a few crumbs would be a bonus....

Option 2 is to take the missus and do a REAL kiss with a wink that says...thats the way it supposed to be...

Actually, I noticed on their Facebook page that not only are they asking their straight comrades to accompany them, they even are asking them to “kiss another dude for us, or hold hands with a straight friend of the same sex”.

Guess they feel their numbers aren’t enough.

Too much to ask? Nah, no big deal, sure I’ll kiss a dude for you - NOT. >:(

Maybe it’s just me, but every time I go to Chick-fil-A I always wind up dealing with The Obviously Gay Kid Behind The Counter.

Wait, it just hit me: They *work* there! THE PHONE CALLS ARE COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE
