    Oh boy, more contraversy. I think there are lots of guns in Michigan, so business will likely boom. No pun intended.

    I am not a fan of boycotts but I hope this guy is run out of business by boycotting him so hard he will feel like the worlds greatest idiot for saying what he did about gays.

    And if that does not work I would go and crowdfund me a company with the express business plan of running this guy out of business by opening a repair shop across the road from him and do everything he does for half the prize. But that would be me if I had money to burn

    Now let's say "RFRA" passed in michigan, which very nearly happened in december, and until the backlash in indiana, appeared certain it would pass. Now even being in ann arbor or detroit, there's no recourse for a gay person simply wanting their car repaired.

    This also impresses the need for a state/nationwide anti discrimination law
    That's actually a lie because it presumes that this mechanic would be the only auto mechanic in Ann Arbor or Detroit

    Not necessarily. If my car broke down and I had it towed to the nearest shop and it happened to be his then I would have no recourse but to endure the expense of having it towed to a different shop.

    The claim was that the customer has no recourse. I claimed that was a lie then you, in an effort to demonstrate it is not a lie, proved that the customer does indeed have recourse. You unwittingly proved me right, and for that I thank you

    Actually, causing undue expense is grounds in court for a discrimination suit.

    Not relay, no. There are dozens of sister services like chipin, and one could always just mail him money.
