    Drive-through customers wait in line at a Chick-fil-A on Aug. 1, 2012 in Fort Worth, Texas.

    A Frederick, Md., Chick-fil-A was visited by vandals late Saturday night. Police arrived early Sunday morning to find stickers promoting marriage equality and a gay pride flag on the windows.

    The restaurant, located on on Urbana Pike, opened Monday for the first time since the stickering. Chik-fil-A franchises are always closed on Sundays.

    This is at least the third Chick-fil-A across the country to be vandalized since the company's president spoke out against same-sex marriage.

    Josh Levin, campaign manager for Marylanders for Marriage Equality, issued a statement that reads in part: "We abhor any vandalism or disrespect in this campaign.... We encourage our supporters to have conversations with people they know who may be undecided on the issue."
