Five Chick-Fil-A protest moves guaranteed to ruffle feathers

Unless you've been living in a basement without electricity, you've heard about the socio-political chicken soup boiling up around Chick-Fil-A, complete with boycotts and "buycotts" inspired by the company president's anti-gay-sex marriage stance. And you've heard about it from one side, then the other, then both again. Gay people are pissed as wet hens, and cock-blocking Chick-Fil-A chicken, while conservative folks are buying chicken sammies en masse.

The next round comes today, with a gay kiss-in at Chick-Fil-A outlets, but there are certain to be many more rounds. Although this definitely qualifies as a polarizing issue, a few basic courtesies should be observed, no matter what side of the controversy you fall on.
