“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

I'm glad this is in michigan, so i can demonstrate precisely how this "RFRA" crap would work here.
Let's say he moved or opened shop in ann arbor or detroit, and then he made this statement. The minute he discriminated against someone gay, he would be sued and lose. That's because those cities, unlike grandville, have anti discrimination laws.
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
Not trying to defend this guy here but for those of you that missed it his comment about the nuts and bolts is something that even a semi-mechanic would know the meaning of. Bolts are the males. Nuts are females. A bolt (male) is useless without a nut (female). No vehicle would even make it 10 seconds without using both. IE: It as an analogy. I doubt very seriously that he would endanger anyone's life.
It is obviously an analogy that fails when it comes to human beings but it is a analogy nonetheless.

I am as pro-gay rights as a person can be. But the less moral side of me is tempted to pretend and advertise my business as being anti-gay just so I can make a few hundred thousand dollars really quick with no work and a gofundme page. I'm not going to do it but the temptation is there.
