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 think that he was using an analogy (a pretty poor one at that)

    So because you disagree with him, you think that you can make up stuff about him and it's OK?? This is the path to bigotry..

    You know nothing about the person or the quality of work he does. All you're doing is stating what you want to believe about him without knowing if it's factual or not.

    You can't make that assumption.

    He is in the business of repairing cars so if a customer has an accident as a result of his work, this comment will come up, as it should.

    Did he start a gofundme page yet?

    That may have been his intent but he clearly states that rather than simply refuse those 'immoral folks' service he would show (prove to?) them that things cannot be done differently and still work.

    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.
    People change over time. Sad to see that you have to sink to such depths just to try to attack the man's character...
