Bet Dan Cathy never saw THIS coming

The controversy surrounding Chick-Fil-A and their owner’s view on same-sex marriage might have gotten them more attention then they would like…

Proponents of same-sex marriage have organized a simple counter-protest for Wednesday, asking people to donate the approximate cost of a Chick-fil-A meal, about $6.50 to gay and lesbian rights groups, according to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).

Friday’s protest promises to be the more visible, as GLAAD is backing a “National Same-Sex Kiss Day” to be held at Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide and encourages participants to take and post photos to the Internet.

The organization says on Facebook that this particular protest is not a response to Huckabee’s call to demonstration and that it was already announced on July 19 — three days after the interview with Chick-fil-A’s president.

GLAAD encourages supporters not to go in groups and to keep the kisses on the conservative side.

Several Mayors and high-ranking politicians in various states have tossed their two pennies in regards to Chick-fil-A and their anti-gay policy.

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino told the Boston Herald last week he doesn’t want Chick-fil-A in his city. The company is considering opening a location there.

“Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population,” he said.

Menino also wrote to the company, urging Chick-fil-A officials to “back out of your plans to locate in Boston.”

Philadelphia City Councilman James Kenney sent a letter to Cathy, telling him to “take a hike and take your intolerance with you,” and vowing to introduce a resolution at the next council meeting condemning the company.

And Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said that “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values.”

Will any of you be in attendance on Wednesday’s “Same Sex Kissing Day”??
