    ‘Mother F***er Racist Sons of B**ches From Hell’: Wedding Venue Gets Threats, Fears Shut Down After Refusing Gay Couple’s Nuptials
    Aug. 9, 2013 4:45pm Billy Hallowell 0


    Another business is facing retribution for declining service to a same-sex couple. Betty and Dick Odgaard, owners of Görtz Haus Gallery in Grimes, Iowa, are catching the ire of gay rights advocates after they declined offering their venue to Lee Stafford and his fiance Jared.

    Now the owners, who are Christians, are receiving vicious and threatening emails and phone calls — and they fear that their business could shut down because of the fierce reaction.

    Business owners have a right to freedom of association. Customers have a right to direct anger at business owners within the confines of legal behavior.

    Making a threat of any kind is ILLEGAL

    Do you consider profanity-laced death threats to be "legal behavior?"

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Gay is not a race. I'm really picky about that.

    People have a right to try to get married where they want to and to express dissatisfaction at being denied. They have the right to advocate a boycott. What they don't have a right to do is threaten and intimidate.

    I wish they could stick to distending each others body orifices in the privacy of their own homes and leave the rest of us alone.

    However you routinely support the causes of these shakedown groups. They, after all, share your political views. You rarely if ever hear of a conservative group acting this way.

    Take that up with the Blaze and then tell the ones doing the threatening how they are risking jail time. Their little private practice (that should remain private) could get a whole lot more exciting there.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
