TENNESSEE VALLEY (WHNT) – Heavy crowds are turning out at Chick-fil-A restaurants across north Alabama today. Many say waiting in line doesn’t bother them, and they’re happy to do so to show their support for the company leader’s recent stance against gay marriage.
Police are dealing with traffic headaches, though. Madison Police have called in extra officers to help deal with heavy congestion on Highway 72, and Huntsville Police are trying to manage traffic backups near Chick-fil-A’s on Whitesburg Drive and at University & Wynn.
Friday, same-sex couples plan to turn up at the fast-food chain Friday for public displays of affection.
