'Kiss Day' protest for gay held in chick-fil-A

By CNN | August 5th 2012

Gay rights activists staged a "kiss day" at Chick-fil-A outlets nationwide Friday amid a controversy over the company president's stance against same-sex marriages.

Organizers used social media to urge same-sex couples to participate in the event and post pictures and videos online.

"I like to liken it to a married couple sharing a light kiss over a romantic meal, it's the same thing. We're here, and our love is just as good," organizer Carly McGehee said.

Two dozen protesters turned out in the afternoon at a Chick-fil-A location in suburban Atlanta. At least one couple shared a kiss for the assembled media.

Marci Alt said she would like Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy to meet her wife and their two children.

"We share some of the same kind of values," Alt said. "I think it would open his eyes to understand that just because we are a lesbian couple, we're really not any different than him and Mrs. Cathy."

In Los Angeles, same-sex marriage supporters Luke Montgomery and Eduardo Cisneros kissed outside a Chick-fil-A restaurant.

Montgomery said Jesus Christ never said anything about gay people. Referring to Cathy, the activist said, "He needs to open the Bible before he opens his mouth."
