    Oh boy, more contraversy. I think there are lots of guns in Michigan, so business will likely boom. No pun intended.
    The moron definitely crossed the line with the following comment:

    If you want to argue this fact with me then I will put your vehicle together with all bolts and no nuts and you can see how that works.
    His open threat to do shoddy and dangerous repairs if he percieves a customer to be 'dishonest or immoral' and yet insistent upon being served should cause him untold grief and invite lawsuits. I imagine that his plan was to get lots of free publicity and perhaps even have a gofundme page opened in his honor. He was a complete and total moron to state anything beyond his right to refuse service to anyone - taking the leap to claiming that he would intentionally make improper repairs just may be his undoing.

    I guess the only way to fight dishonest immoral people is to be dishonest and immoral yourself?

    Sounds like this guy is the one missing a couple nuts.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Of course you'd believe it in a second that he would purposely damage a vehicle so as to call them injury or death, wouldn't you?

    I'd believe that being such a screwup there's a fair chance he might do anyway.
    Don't work out, work in.

    He made such a claim - did he not? Surely a lawyer could try that angle on a jury. Once you assert that the quality of your repair work depends upon your impression of the customer's 'morality' then you are ripe for lawsuits.

    Such an honest and moral Christian. Hallelujah.

    Some people are just disgusting.

    The only good piece of news from this is that they pulled his "gofundme" page. So that retard conservative mouth-breathing morons can't give this asshole any money.

    We're not in court.

    He made the claim. Now he's under a microscope due to his own idiocy. If a car he repairs ends up with a malfunction due to an error on the part of his shop this quote can and should be used against him.

    Proverbs 21:2 "Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart."

    When you threaten to do shoddy work for those you disagree with your heart isn't with God.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
