Michigan Car Repair Shop Owner Says He Will Turn Away Openly Gay Customers ... And That's Legal
Oh boy, more contraversy. I think there are lots of guns in Michigan, so business will likely boom. No pun intended.A Michigan car repair shop owner said he will refuse to serve openly gay customers -- and, yes, that is legal.
Brian Klawiter is the owner of Dieseltec in Grandville, Michigan. On Tuesday, he took to Facebook to announce in a verbose post that he has no problem refusing to serve gay customers on the basis of religious freedom. (Guns, however, are allowed and customers who bring in their firearms are eligible for a discount.)
"I am a Christian," he wrote, in part. "My company will be run in a way that reflects that. Dishonesty, thievery, immoral behavior, etc. will not be welcomed at MY place of business. (I would not hesitate to refuse service to an openly gay person or persons. Homosexuality is wrong, period. 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.)"
