Gay Marriage

Hardware store refuses service

1 Jul, 2015

Jeff Amyx, owner of Amyx Hardware and Roofing Supplies is refusing to allow gays in his store. He says he is fed up with all of the positive feedback following the Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing same-sex marriage.

Would you let a child molester come in your home, around your kids? Of course not. So why would I let a homosexual hang around me? It’s against my nature, it’s against my way of life, it’s against my religion.

Amyx, a Baptist minister, feels he has to stand up for his beliefs.

Homosexuals stand boldly for what they believe. Why can’t I stand boldly for what I believe? Why can’t I stand boldly and say I believe the word of God over them?
