SAN ANTONIO -- The battle for same-sex marriage equality took an interesting turn in San Antonio late Wednesday night as gay rights advocates ambushed a Chick-fil-A with signs and posters.

More than two dozen Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) messages covered the windows of the fast food restaurant in the 1300 block of Austin Highway.

Workers at the business weren't aware of the signs until they arrived for work Thursday morning. They had no comment.

Some of the signs which were taped to the chicken franchise's window read, "Government can not dictate love," "Support love note hate," and "Your son is gay and everything will be okay."

Chick-fil-A was likely targeted because of CEO Dan Cathy's public opposition to gay marriage last summer. This week, Supreme Court justices began hearing two cases at the heart of same-sex marriage rights.

So far, no San Antonio group has claimed responsibility for the signs.
