Driving on Rock Road in Wichita can be challenging at any time of day. On Wednesday, it was especially difficult.
So many people were coming to the Chick-fil-A restaurant, that traffic was backed up on Rock and on Central.
Police directed traffic for several hours Wednesday afternoon. Drivers and customers we spoke to say the lunch hour was especially busy.
Supporters of Chick-fil-A are eating at restaurants nationwide as the company continues to be criticized for an executive's comments about gay marriage.
Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press last month that the Atlanta-based company was "guilty as charged" for backing "the biblical definition of a family." That unleashed criticism from gay rights groups and others, who have called for boycotts and efforts to block the chain from opening new stores.
Opponents of the company's stance are planning "Kiss Mor Chiks" for Friday, when they are encouraging people of the same sex to show up at Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country and kiss each other.
