Whaaaaaaaa!!!!!

Get over it biatch, you are reaping your bad business practices.

Me and the wife have a small company(getting bigger...slowly) and we have one rule...

If the checks clear, we like them.

Pimp slapped by the invisible hand, biatch.

It's amazing how many of the 'principles' they hold dear are no longer fair or valid when conservatives find themselves on the losing side.
 
2014-08-12 01:15:19 PM  
Yes, let us punish those who tell others how we do business. There's no way that will come back to bite us on the ass.

By the way for all you Christians refusing to do business with people because of your Christianity, why not post the particular Bible verse that says it would be unChristian for you to do business with gay people.

Deadbart seems concerned.

If your anti-gay beliefs bleed over into your life as a retailer you deserve every bit of bad attention offended customers and their supporters can muster.

Diogenes: Pimp slapped by the invisible hand, biatch.


I like the way you put that better.

Ayup. Hypocrisy seems to be their default state these days.

Seriously, if I owned a bridal dress shop and two women walked in and soon made it clear they were lesbians looking for two dresses and not just a heterosexual bride and her friend out looking for a single bridal dress, little cash registers would appear in both my eyes and go *ching ching* like in some cartoon.

And these idiots chased them both out.

End of the day, for these dress sellers the question is will their stance cost them more in lost business than it will net them as their infamy/fame spreads.

As a fan of moral evolution I'm hoping for the net loss thing.

This is LITERALLY AND EXACTLY the conservative argument about how the free market would have achieved the same results as the civil rights act.
 
2014-08-12 01:28:54 PM  
Can't we just go back to a time when gay people were too ashamed to let people know that they were gay for fear of being fired or beat up in alleys? Those were good times.

I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK

If the free market decides that their discriminatory business practice is unacceptable, then that's life in a free market.  If the crying foul by the jilted brides-to-be undergoes a Streisand Effect and promotes the dress shop, then that's life in a free market.

But either way, I don't want to hear conservative pundits b*tching about it.  They should be gloating either way.
 
2014-08-12 01:40:10 PM  
My hometown! And it's heartwarming to see its residents generally do the right thing and condemn the store instead of circling the moral wagons. It's nice to see the non-exiles breaking good.

It's a relatively small town, about... 12,000-20,000. College town in the state system, my dad used to teach sociology there. Constant clash between rural-minded townies and college students. Lots of get off my lawn with the occasional streak of optimistic progressivism held back from simply being in Pennsyltucky. And yes, most of the bullshiat is the old, bigoted, moralizing shiatheads who still hold sway and react in horror at the slightest possibility times change.

Tigger: This is LITERALLY AND EXACTLY the conservative argument about how the free market would have achieved the same results as the civil rights act.


But you don't understand...

If the result is something they like, like no government oversight and no unions, that's just the free market at work.

If the result is something they don't like, like gay people thinking they can shop like everyone else, it's because the evil liberals with an agenda cooked the books, and therefore the market wasn't free.

You see how easy this is?

They're offended because people are reacting to businesses denying service to gay couples in the exact same way (well, even less vehemently, even these days) that people would react to businesses denying service to mixed-race couples. They're seeing their moral positions slip from what everyone believes to what everyone regrets we once believed.

"We feel we have to answer to God for what we do," Miller told The Press Enterprise. "And providing those two girls dresses for a sanctified marriage would break God's law."

And your answer was "We don't like what they do, so we turned that away in a Jesus like manner"

11.  Thou shalt not sell dresses to lesbians.

12.  Your comments shall be full of derp.  No, no, not like that.  I mean *FULL*.  It's surprising some of them can type.

James!: You had a two for one right there and let it walk away.


Which is their (poor) decision to make. Rather than scream biatch and moan about it, perhaps the couple in question could realize that an opportunity exists and open a shop that cater specifically to anyone and everyone regardless of orientation. Instead it appears that the shop owners will face the strong arm of the law who will make them do business with whomever comes through their doors.

And they are upset that turning away customers could somehow have has a negative affect on their business. I really do, however, think the best thing to do is not have the law involved. Instead, make it a shameful thing for anyone to get their dress from that shop. That's what Jesus would want.

Last month, The Washington Post reported that the National Health Interview Survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that only 1.6 percent of respondents self-identified as gay or lesbian. Even fewer, 0.7 percent, self-identified as bisexual. The outcome of this study strongly suggests that the gay population in the United States is far less than perceived


 I love this (implied) conservative argument - gays are too minority-y to warrant protection.  I guess to merit consideration your minority has to be just barely a minority?

There isn't one word about lesbians in the Bible. God was down with the girl on girl action.

But still, they don't have a Constitutional right get served. Or do they? I'm not a lawyer. I don't know what would happen if a black couple got refused for being black.

All that happened is they posted on Facebook that this place refused to sell them a dress. The rest was consequences of the free market putting the store (at least temporarily) out of business.

The stuff about a filing a lawsuit was pure handwringing fiction pulled straight out of Breitbarts ass; presumably to stir up phony outrage. Which is pretty much par for the course for that pack of liars.

Sounds to me things sorted themselves out just as they should in a free society. Don't you agree?

That's actually in the linked article as well, right before a concocted presumption that such a law could give the lesbian couple the basis for a lawsuit.

There is no such law now, and more importantly, there wasn't when this incident happened. Hence the rumination that the lesbians might sue is unmitigated bullshiat; presumably included to stir up outrage.

The article says she lawyered up. We both know that's probably not necessary at this point, though if the money's good, I mean, who am I to... Anyway, a lot of people might take that as an indication that trouble might be brewing even though it's probably just overly cautious.

Why should they shut up? They found the business owners reaction morally reprehensible, and called her on it. Christians do this all the time; and more power to em.

And contrary to your conclusion, it looks like they did change things.
