Same-sex couples gathered at some area Chick-fil-A restaurants Friday to kiss in protest of the company president's recent comments.

On Wednesday, long lines formed at many Chick-fil-A locations to show support for the traditional values stance.

Patch hit the streets to find out if anything was happening in Buckhead.

Over the lunch hour, there were few signs of smooching at the Chick-fil-A at the Lenox Mall food court. Just families and business people in a hurry to grab some chicken nuggets.

Not far away, a TV news crew at the Lindbergh location said two same sex couples kissed there. But they said those symbolic moments of protest would not be aired due to TV station policy against showing video of people kissing.

Joe Dinardo, the owner/operator of the Lindbergh location, declined to talk to Patch and referred all questions to corporate headquarters.

A uniformed Atlanta Police Officer stood by the counter at the Lindbergh store. An APD spokesman confirmed that the department sent officers to some Chick-fil-A locations as a proactive move. The department could not say how many officers were deployed.

There was a larger protest at the downtown Decatur location. Most of those gathered simply waved signs, but our Local Editor on the scene captured

Let's hope we don't see too much public smooching. Unlike these exhibitionistic ChristoLizards who bleat jeezus! at every opportunity, we gay men and women live lives of quiet dignity. And while there are exceptions (e.g., "pride" days, etc.) you are as unlikely to find us waving our rainbow flags, or smooching in public, as you are to find a thumper who knows diddly about The Path of Jesus. No offense, I hope.
