This is a week old, not sure if it was posted here before.

...the [party facility] owner refused to lease the space, telling [the gay couple], “we don’t do that here.”

In a subsequent email after the phone conversation, the owner wrote: “It is because of God that I will not be a part in your reception and I know he loves you but not what you are doing.”


If the party facility owner had any common sense (in Texas?) he would have denied the reception on the basis of that blue bow tie on Ben (right). No court in the US would have convicted him.

OK, joke in questionable taste. But a reminder of the anti-gay bigotry still rampant in many parts of the US. And not surprisingly, frequently the same places that have racial bigotry, and gender bigotry, and every form of bigotry.
