ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) — Smooching supplemented picket signs Friday as supporters of same-sex marriage renewed their protest over public remarks by a chicken-dealing CEO.
Get Equal New Mexico organized the kiss-in at Albuquerque's newest Chick-fil-A restaurant on Montgomery Boulevard NE near San Mateo.
Participant Morgan Miller described the gathering as "lots of smooching, man. Smooching. A lot of love."
Chick-fil-A came under fire after CEO Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press he supports "traditional marriage." That touched a nerve in the gay community while igniting support for Cathy's company among those opposed to gay marriage.
New Mexico is located in the southwestern region of the U.S. Inhabited by Native American populations for many centuries, New Mexico has also been part of Imperial Spain, part of Mexico, and a U.S. territory.
