By now, it's no secret that Chick-fil-A and the LGBT community are having trouble in their relationship.

While Chick-fil-A has never hidden the fact that it's a company with deep Christian ties, things have come to a head in the past week or so with the company's president and COO, Dan Cathy, making it very clear in an interview with the Baptist Press that he is extremely pro-traditional family. In other words -- against same-sex marriage.

What's more alarming is the fact that Chick-fil-A regularly donates millions in company profits to antigay groups.

According to Equality Matters, Chick-fil-A, through its WinShape Foundation, has donated more than $4 million to organizations with antigay agendas in the past three years alone.

Yesterday, former Gov. Mike Huckabee called for National Chick-fil-A Awareness Day. According to reports, hundreds of thousands of people who agree with the restaurant chain's message supported the company by eating chicken sandwiches. Now, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is calling for its own protest -- in the sweetest way possible.

This Friday, August 3, is being claimed as National Same-Sex Kiss Day. At 8 p.m. that day, same-sex couples are being asked to walk into their local Chick-fil-A and share a kiss. No picket signs. No yelling. No name-calling. Just an old-fashioned kiss. As the National Same-Sex Kiss Day Facebook page states:

"Let's show Chick-fil-A that EVERYONE deserves to be able to fall in love, start a family, and take their children to eat fried chicken after a soccer match."

You're also encouraged to take a picture and share it on the "Kiss Day" Tumblr page.

Will you participate in National Same-Sex Kiss Day? Clean Plate Charlie would like to know. In the meantime... a big smooch from us!

The excitement of seeing 2 girls kiss is diminished by the understanding that they have brains like the writer of this piece.

All the author did was print the news. It's you racist, bigoted homophobes that create it.

You call this journalism? You misspelled Dan Cathy's name! You put "Cathay."

Honestly...I'm ok with gays....but making out while I'm trying to get the best chicken sandwich and some sweet tea....just turned me into a supporter of free speech...I don't care who you are with...just not in front of me...that's just awkward and is going to bring more hate than benefit...

Why do we have to scare them and come back with PDA? I don't like people making out in front of me gay or strait. There has to be a better way to discuss this polarizing topic. Why would we frighten them even more? All we want to do is love the person we love in private (for me 10 years), but when the bigots (or just people who know no better) believe that this is a sexual desire and it is based on lust, it seems a bit counter active to then get in their face with their worst nightmare. They know no better, and if they do, this doesn't help!! Am I the only one who sees this?

Laine Doss: All gay news all the time. Maybe it's time for Heteros to boycot New Times?

Name-calling as a pretense for truth! How sad, and revealing.

 @Beast Its not news, it's gay propaganda.  News would be that Chick-Fil-A sold more chicken yesterday than any other day in their history. News would be that the nation is rejecting  your view of the world, in state after state in the voting booths, and in Chick-Fil-A store after store.

 @EddieBosel Be fair. They're not journalists. They're bloggers.

 @ChristyB Does that mean you won't meet me at Chick-fil-A for a smooch?
