Gay rights activists are planning a kiss-in at Chick-fil-A restaurants.

They plan to flood the food chain's restaurants later today (Friday) after the company's President, Dan Cathy, spoke against same-sex marriage on July 16th.

Dan Cathy was quoted in The Baptist Press: "We are very much supportive of the family, the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives.

We give God thanks for that."

This statement caused uproar around the world as it was felt as an opposition to gay marriage. However, after Mike Huckabee created a Facebook page entitled 'Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day' for Wednesday this week, the chain reported record sales on that day.
