EDISON - Same-sex couples staged a ?kiss-in? today at Chick-fil-A locations across the country as a response to controversial remarks made by the restaurant chain's president, Dan Cathy.

There was not any smooching at the Parmamus Park Mall location but there were plenty of opinions from both sides of the same-sex marriage debate.

Rather than kissing at different locations, Steven Goldstein, of Garden State Equality, is encouraging supporters of marriage equality to call their local Chick-fil-A and try to persuade them to begin talking.

Over 3,000 customers flooded a Paramus location on Wednesday for a Chick-fil-A appreciation day, forcing it to stay open more than an hour after closing time.

Sales at that location were six times greater that day than on the same day last year, according to Chick-fil-A.
