Chick-fil-A Protests Continue

Posted: Updated:

Friday, protesters are continuing their efforts at Chick-fil-A stores across the country.  

Many participated in a national "kiss-in" at Chick-fil-A to protest recent remarks against same-sex marriage by the company's president.  

There is no word whether anybody staged a "kiss-in" at the Chick-fil-A on Woodbrook Drive in Albemarle County.  Managers declined to comment about it Friday, but there was one protestor in front of the store with a message.

"I am here to say that what Chick-fil-A is doing is wrong and that donating money to hate organizations that go against people's natural life is just wrong," said protester Steve Ferguson.  "You can't change someone if they're gay or straight, and I believe that it's wrong to hate on people that's what they're doing.  They're breeding hate chickens."

An online petition is also going on to remove Chick-fil-A from a dining hall at the University of Virginia, which has more than 200 signatures.  People from Chick-fil-A are standing by their stance that everyone is welcome.
