    He's clearly making a political statement.

    Maybe you better call the Better Business Bureau.

    I was thinking the same thing. I just need to pretend to be a typical intolerant fundamentalist asshole and I could probably get my kids college paid for out of it.

What you're doing is attacking him dishonestly for what he believes. If you don't like the choice he made - address that - there's no need to create stuff to dislike him for using the kind of dishonest crap that's getting thrown around on this thread.
    You use Bill Clinton as the yardstick? A man who has no character? Are you going to say I don't know Bill Clinton so I can't say that?

    Very funny.

    Ah yes, a demonstration of the tolerance of the gay community. See it's not the gayness we dislike, it is the behavior of those defending it. And that is why many of us just refuse to deal with the drama. It's not worth it for the 3% of the consumer market. I turned away a war veteran in my business recently. Not because he was a veteran, but because he wanted me to diagnose his car for free and then await payment on the work until weeks later. Doesn't work that way. This is a business, not a charity. On the other hand, we just delivered a large job for a lesbian girl yesterday. It went very well and I think she will be very happy with it. She is out of work, and honestly with the multicolored hair, facial piercings and tattoos I can see why, but her parents paid us $2700 to put an engine in her car after she ran it out of oil.

    This has nothing to do with the "gay community" and everything to do with this idiot proclaiming his refusal to serve openly gay people simply because he is a hypocrite, as well as a possible threat to those who disagree with him. He even said he expected "hate mail". While most of us do not condone death threats or anything of the sort, we also do not have any real clue about any supposed death threats, including who is making them or exactly why. For all we know, it could be someone who didn't like the guy's work, attitude, etc. that has dealt with him, not someone who even cares about this. Plus, we don't know if those alleged threats are any more real than his "threat" about leaving off nuts from a vehicle he works on.

    Well I had someone threaten to kill me, and he is currently in jail. All death threats are taken seriously by the intended target. Even if they are an internet tough guy with tolerance issues.
