Hey, you probably didn't know, but fast food is a hot topic these days, and there's nothing hotter (oh yeah) than Chick-fil-A's sectarian stance against same-sex marriage. You may have heard about it?

The push-back is really freaking out certain people — namely those who equate acting on a difference of opinion, like the Jim Henson Company did when it severed its business relationship with the chain, with a militant attempt to squelch free speech. And now those people are being led by the bright duo of Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

The Tremendous Two are urging the indignant, small-minded masses (who probably don't need the encouragement to begin with) to get a little more grease in their guts by eating at the restaurant on some day that you can Google if you want.

Conversely, those championing for gay couples to have the same right to lock each other into a legal conundrum built on emotional tension that heterosexual couples have, are boycotting the restaurant indefinitely. But not only that: There's also this great National Same-Sex Kiss Day coming up on Aug. 3, where — you'll never guess — you go to a Chick-fil-A and lock lips with your likewise-sexed loved one. (But I guess you don't order anything while you're there?)

"So grab a friend (or 20) and head out to your nearest Chick Fil A!" reads an event page that clearly overestimates the number of guys interested in making out with me. "And don't forget to post photos/videos of it here! For all the world to see!"

Just don't forget to take the advice of one commenter who's clearly been to far too many public make-out protests where things got more out of hand: "Just remember to keep it classy folks!"
