Gay rights activists kissing to protest Chick-fil-A chief's gay marriage opposition

ATLANTA (AP) - Gay rights activists have been kissing at Chick-fil-A restaurants across the country to protest the fast-food chain owners' opposition to same-sex unions.

The demonstrations Friday come two days after hundreds of thousands of customers showed up to support the fast-food chain during "Appreciation Day." Chick-fil-A says it set a 1-day sales record on Wednesday

Meanwhile, police are investigating graffiti at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Southern California. The graffiti discovered Friday on the side of a restaurant in Torrance says, "Tastes like hate" and had a picture of a cow. No one has been arrested.

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."

The statement infuriated gay marriage supporters, who planned the so-called kiss-in protests.
