Straight Man exposes MD Trolley companies refusal to accept gay marriage business…
A trolley company in Annapolis MD has decided to leave the wedding industry instead of accepting business from gay couples who can now marry in the state.
The owner of Discover Annapolis Tours, Matt Grubbs said he will lose about $50,000 in annual revenue because his religious beliefs are being denied.
In a letter to a potential client , Grubbs complained, “the law exempts my minister from doing same-sex weddings, and the Knights of Columbus don’t have to rent out their hall for a gay wedding reception, but somehow my religious convictions don’t count for anything.” He maintains the change will cost him about $50,000 in lost business.
But now for the best part, it was straight man, Chris Belkot, who exposed the Grubbs after finding his decision offensive and called it “repressive bigotry,” .
Belkot, sent Grubbs’ email to Annapolis news websites and fired off a response to Grubbs that read, in part, “It is your right to run your business any way you see fit, but let’s be honest here, you drive a trolley up and down a street. Not exactly God’s work.”
Frank Schubert, the scumbag behind Prop 8 in California and fought the passage of same-sex marriage in Maryland had this to say:
“This is exactly what happens,” Schubert said, adding that religious liberty is “right in the cross hairs of this debate. … The law doesn’t protect people of faith. It simply doesn’t.”
Lets remember the main point here, like race, sexual orientation is not a choice. Religion and bigotry are…Enough said.
