Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day: Celebs Weigh In
Local Woman to Chick-fil-A: Apologize
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.
