People across the country flocked to Chick-fil-A Wednesday in support of remarks by the restaurant's CEO backing traditional marriage, ABC News reports. Many of the chain's stores reported record crowds, and the local outlet in Augusta, Ga., ran out of food and had to close early. At one Atlanta location, the line for the drive-thru looped twice around the building and out onto the street, and in Crystal City, Va., a steady line went down the block for three hours. Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy appeared at a Fayetteville, N.C., location to thank customers for eating there. More than 630,000 supporters had signed up to celebrate Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, which former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee created to counter a boycott launched by gay-rights activists after Cathy said his company supported the biblical definition of marriage. On Friday, August 3, supporters of gay marriage are planning a "kiss-in" at Chick-fil-As across the country, encouraging gays and lesbians to share a public display of affection in the middle of the restaurants.
