Homosexuals are going to have to find a Home Depot or Lowes when they need hardware supplies if they live in a small town in Tennessee.
They’re not welcome in one Christian business owner’s hardware store.
Look on the bright side, gays. Now you know where NOT to shop. Spend your money on chains, padlocks, and rope at all the gay hardware stores where there’s also a fine selection of butt plugs for you to pick from.
A Tennessee hardware store owner is celebrating the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of a bakery that refused to bake a cake for a gay couple’s wedding by placing a “No Gays Allowed” sign in front of his store.
Jeff Amyx, who owns Amyx Hardware & Roofing Supplies in Grainger County, initially posted the sign in 2015 after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage but later removed it following intense backlash.
The sign returned this week, however, after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, according to WBIR 10.
Amyx told the local NBC affiliate that the ruling came as a shock to him, calling the decision a victory for Christianity.
“Christianity is under attack,” Amyx said. “This is a great win, don’t get me wrong, but this is not the end, this is just the beginning. Right now, we’re seeing a ray of sunshine. This is ‘happy days’ for Christians all over America, but dark days will come.”
Amyx initially posted the “No Gays Allowed” sign in front of his store in 2015 because he wanted to stand for what he believed in as a Christian, he said.
But due to public scrutiny, he replaced it with a sign that read: “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who would violate our rights of freedom of speech & freedom of religion.”
Amyx added that he fears a future Supreme Court decision will be different.
