Living in the south it's pretty commonly known that a majority of people are conservation and completely against gays and gay marriage. Just something you have to expect in the 'Bible Belt!'
An East Tennessee hardware store owner decided to express his beliefs by putting up a sign that says, "NO Gays Allowed."
Jeff Amyx, the owner of Amyx Hardware & Roofing Supplies in East Tennessee added the "No Gays Allowed" sign on Monday, because gay and lesbian couples are against his religion.
LOL.. this is me walking through a hardware store.
Amyx, who is also a baptist minister, said he realized Monday morning that LGBT people are not afraid to stand for what they believe in. He said it showed him that Christian people should be brave enough to stand for what they believe in.
"They gladly stand for what they believe in, why can't I? They believe their way is right, I believe it's wrong. But yet I'm going to take more persecution than them because I'm standing for what I believe in," Amyx said.
On Tuesday, Amyx removed the "No Gays allowed" sign and replaced it with a sign that says: "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who would violate our rights of freedom of speech & freedom of religion."
I mean I get it... he's not wrong... Freedom of Speech and Religion is definitely part of our constitution, but it doesn't seem like the most BRILLIANT BUSINESS MOVE to completely alienate an entire demographic of society.. but have at it!
Clearly people on Twitter are NOT here for this!
