JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Cars backed out of of parking lots and lines spilled outside of doors during Wednesday's Chick-fil-a's appreciation day.
"It's a well-run organization. They do a good job," said one supporter.
"This man has a right to his own opinion," said Mike Fletcher.
Thousands all over the country showed their support for the restaurants President's and CEO'S stance against same sex-marriage.
"That's not hate. That's values. That's my opinion," said Fletcher.
Gay activists from Georgia to California are counter-protesting with public displays of affection. But here in Jacksonville it was business as usual.
"Marriage would be ideal, but we are still fighting for equality," said Natalie Nguyen with UNF's LGBT.
We went to five different Chick-fil-a's to see if anyone would be participating, but didn't see one demonstrator. Natalie Nguyen with UNF'S Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Association isn't surprised.
"Here in our city we still don't have inclusion in our human rights ordinance. And that is a battle that we are still fighting," she said.
Nguyen says there are other ways people can do like supporting the passing of Human Rights Ordinance 296.
"That is the best way to get involved instead of getting in everybody else's faces," said Nguyen.
Official numbers were not released, but Chick-fil-a executives say Wednesday was a record-breaking day for the chain.
