I have often said that I would appreciate any business owner, florist shop, wedding venue, dressmaker, tuxedo rental, photographer, DJ, anyone, who has an issue with The Gays getting married to please post their thoughts and feelings in their windows and in their ads so we, The Gays and The Gay Friendlies, will know which businesses to avoid.
And that’s exactly what Bob Flournoy is doing in Texas. Flournoy is a Republican, a lawyer, a good Christian, the former Angelina County Republican Party chair for over a decade, the owner of a wedding venue, a bigot and a homophobe.
Flournoy owns Texas Forest Country Weddings in Huntington, Texas and he says he was once asked by a same-sex couple … Martha! My smelling salts please …who wanted to have their wedding at his venue and Flournoy told them he wouldn’t do it, and also took out a full-page ad to tell all of The gays, and The Gay Friendlies, that he will never host a same-sex ceremony:
“Our Christian faith demands that we not participate in same-sex, transgender or any other perversion of marriage. If you disagree with our stance on marriage, please respect our Christian belief and have your wedding elsewhere.”
Click to emBIGGERate his Christian faith; and that makes me wonder then, if he’d be unwilling to do any wedding for an atheist or agnostic … Buddhist … or is it just The Gays who affect his Christian sensibilities and turn him into a hate-filled ignorant fool. And he’s going on and on about this new “perversion” called marriage equality and how, well, let’s have Good Ole bob Flournoy spell it out for you:
“The family is under assault and being destroyed, and this is one more nail in the coffin, and that’s why I have been up front about what I believe. As you know, my wife and I have been placed in a situation where we face the choice of giving up the freedom by which God has made us free or bow down to the ungodly and perverse conduct of those who want to marry the same sex or claim they are some sex other than what God made them to be. We have decided that we must obey God rather than man, regardless of the consequences here on earth."
And so, to make sure that people like Bob Flournoy can survive in business when they blatantly advertise that they are bigots and haters and homophobes, Bob Flournoy is reaching out to other bigots and homophobes, in the baking business the florist shop, the musicians, who will work with him to create a Homo-Free Business Directory, AKA The Yellow Pages of God Hates Fags.
And he’s raising that bible Flag to try and persuade folks that The End Is Near; he says that after the government comes for his little hoe-down wedding venue they will be silencing pastors and churches, and, oh dear Baby Jeebus, taxing churches! And he swears to his God — not the God that most folks believe in, but the God to whom he cuts a check every month so his megachurch pastor can buy a new manse or helicopter for Jesus — the government is forcing churches to accept the transgender agenda and provide accommodations for them.
Oops. Sorry, Bob Flournoy, I’m’a call bull shiz on that one, especially since you live in Backwoods, Backwater, Backasswards Texas, one of the 21 states with laws prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation in public accommodations, meaning that no same-sex couple who wanted to have a wedding in your barnyard of a venue would be able to sue you for denying them service because they’re gay.
Yes, Bob Flournoy, this Gay Agenda that you believe is set out to destroy you, cannot be used as a reason to sue bigots like yourself so you don’t have a cowboy boot to stand on; spit out the chew and relax a spell. Asshat.
And since no one can sue you, and you’re free to be a bigot and hater, I’m thinking you only took out that ad to get more notice for the business you own in Texas, The Land Of Bigotry. And that’s what really irks me; you aren’t about God and the Baby Jeebus and your Christian faith; you wanna make a buck! That’s your God; that’s your belief. And so you’ve opted to market hate to make a buck.
But I will post about you in the hopes that The Gays and The Gay Friendlies see you for what you are, a lying hypocritical homophobe out to make a dollar off of intolerance and I hope those people will stop using your Bunkhouse, Outhouse, Farmhouse, Shithouse you call a business.
Hate doesn’t win, Bob Flournoy; ask God about that.
