A boycott by all decent Americans isn’t enough now that Mike Huckabee has declared August 1st National Eat Chik-fil-A day (is he, like, even allowed to do that?). In order to fight back against the chain that un-apologetically donates to anti-gay organizations, an activist named Carly McGehee has started a movement to inundate Chick-fil-A restaurants with same-sex kissers on Friday, August 3rd. From the Facebook event page:
“Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week you’ll have noticed that Chick Fil A has officially come out against the LGBTQ community. (For those of you who have been living under a rock, or just want to read it again, here’s the article.)
In honor of their support for love, equality, and the real definition of family, we’re holding a NATIONAL Same Sex Kiss Day at Chick Fil A’s around the country. So grab a friend (or 20) and head out to your nearest Chick Fil A! And don’t forget to post photos/videos of it here! For all the world to see!”
The event announcement comes just days after Jim Henson’s company, who has a partnership with Chick-fil-A, severed all future ties with the restaurant chain. Some good video should come out of this. But note to those who plan to participate: BE SURE NOT TO BUY ANYTHING from Chick-fil-A while you’re there! That would kind of defeat the purpose. Eat first!
You can follow the Same Sex Kiss Day Twitter for more updates (they’re trying to get Anderson Cooper on board, currently.)
