ATLANTA (AP) — Gay rights activists and other gay marriage supporters are planning a "Kiss In" at Chick-fil-A restaurants to protest the fast-food chain owners' opposition to same-sex unions.

The protests Friday come two days after hundreds of thousands of customers showed their support for the restaurant during an "Appreciation Day." Chick-fil-A says it set a one-day sales record on Wednesday.

The flap began last month when Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told a religious publication that the company backed "the biblical definition of a family."

Herndon Graddick, the president of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, says Cathy has every right to voice his opinion but he should get to know the people that he's speaking out against.
