Chik-fil-A Responds to Gay ‘Kiss-In’ Day Nationwide

Gay rights advocates are holding a “Kiss-In” at Chik-fil-A restaurants nationwide, including some in Bossier City and Shreveport today. They are protesting the company’s owner’s comments that marriage should be between a man and a woman.

Chik-fil-A has issued a statement on its corporate website in response to the gay rights protest.  The statement is attributed to Steve Robinson, who is the executive vice president in charge of marketing for  Chick-fil-A, Inc.:

At Chick-fil-A, we appreciate all of our customers and are glad to serve them at any time. Our goal is simple: to provide great food, genuine hospitality and to have a positive influence on all who come into contact with Chick-fil-A.

Wednesday’s Chik-fil-A Appreciation Day brought out thousands of people who stood in line for a chicken sandwich – some as long as 90 minutes – setting a record for sales.

Mike Huckabee called for an Appreciation Day and even posted it on Facebook. Other conservatives including Rick Santorum and Rush Limbaugh endorsed the movement as well.

I found the parking lot full at the Shreveport Chik-fil-A on Youree Drive Wednesday. People standing in a long line outside told me they were there to support freedom of speech, while some said they agreed with Chik-fil-A’s owner that marriage should be between a man and a woman. Others said they just like the food.
