First Christian bakeries, then Christian photographers, now Christian bridal shops. It's hard to believe the gay agenda isn't specifically looking for Christian business owners to bully.
The latest news comes out of Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. A lesbian couple reportedly wanted to set an appointment at W.W. Bridal Boutique but were told, effectively, "We don't cater to lesbians."
"We feel we have to answer to God for what we do," owner Victoria Miller told The Press Enterprise. And providing those two girls dresses for a sanctified marriage would break God's law."
The lesbians didn't take too kindly to Miller's stance and posted their complaint on Facebook. Of course, the post went viral, and gays and others sympathetic to the lesbians' cause tanked their social-media rankings with one-star reviews.
One man commented, "Jesus made everyone feel welcome, shame you are not a follower of Christ."
Another wrote on Yelp, "Your business should be shut down. I bet back in the 50's and 60's you people would have discriminated against blacks and before that Japanese and before that, Jews. It's always some group or something with you religious bigots. #lgbtrights"
What happens now? The (New York) Daily News reports the Bloomsburg Town Council is planning to hold a meeting on Monday to discuss the incident. Specifically, the paper says, council members are debating whether to propose legislation that would ban businesses from refusing to serve LGBT customers.
