The ironically named American Family Association has decided to take on the 'If You're Buying, We're Selling' grassroots movement that sprang up in Mississippi after Governor Bryant signed into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which allows Christian business owners to refuse service to gay customers and avoid lawsuits for doing so.
The 'If You're Buying' campaign then produced decals for Mississippi businesses that don’t believe in discrimination to place in their windows so that people, every day customers, gays and straight alike, will know which businesses do not believe in discriminating against anyone.
And that act is being called "bullying" by the AFA.
See, a Christian business owner who refuses to provide their service to a gay customer is just fine to the AFA, but a business owner who touts themselves as being non-discriminatory against anyone, is bullying Christians,
And the AFA goes even further by listing every single business in Mississippi that has joined 'If You're Buying' on their website, you know, so good Christians, who hate The Gays and The Gay Friendlies — or just people who believe in equality — will know where to shop.
Seriously, who is the bullied party here?
What I suggest people do is visit the AFA page and find that list of businesses that don’t encourage, condone or promote discrimination of any kind, and make a beeline to those shops and do a little buying.
And then send along a little note to the AFA for their help in pointing you in the right direction.
