    Umm, doubtful.

    It's not the "hateful" comments from LGBT supporters, or the phone calls, or anything else "harassing" that is driving these funds. These funds are driven when airtime is given on a radio or TV program with MILLIONS of viewers. Once plugged, the gullible don't even go to the Yelp page or FB page, but simply go straight to the GoFundMe page and donate $5, $20 or $100 dollars.

    You'd have to "out" the plan on the GlenBeck, or equivalent, show, and that's not happening anytime soon. So now they'll get rich, AND not have a history of their bigotry memorialized on the internet. I categorically disagree with this suggested approach of "moderate" dissension.

    Call the bigot a bigot. If they get rich, so be it. Ill gotten gains rarely help a person in the long term, and if the ill gotten gains do, so be it. The truth is more important than harpooning their jackpot.

    He sounds immoral himself!

    Tampering with a car (leaving off the nuts?) that's sabotage!

    Here's his arrest record:

    Does he exclude assault and battery from sin?

    Just think of it as a bigot's entertainment budget. They're not really funding the guy, per say, though he might benefit, they're entertaining themselves and these are just box office receipts.

    It's like when the lottery goes up to half a billion and I put down my dollar. I don't really think I'm going to win. But I might spend a few moments fantasizing. Fantasizing hell, I've already got the boat picked out. This one...ain't she purdy...



    So just the five minute fantasy of that is a much better value than $1 worth of cable television. Hell, that hardly buys me the time it takes to flip through all the crappy stations. So that dollar comes out of the entertainment budget. It's the same thing with the bigots.

    They fantasize treating us like shit. So for them, they think that donation of $20 is a good deal. You just can't get that type of entertainment on cable anymore and no one wants to bother with a lynching. So they pay for that convenience of living vicariously though a fellow bigot. It's quite practical of them if you think it through.

    I'm glad these conservative con artists are being exposed. This third-rate mechanic with a criminal record may be the latest hero for Republicans to rally around and throw their money at, but how long can this go on? Surely the GOP will tire of "donating" to these anti-gay people as they continue to come out of the woodwork, hoping to cash in.

    Dude, I get what you're saying / and it's all cool & stuff. But it's 2015. Time for YOU to come out of that closet. You're not in Florida anymore baby. Let's see that face. It's easy to hide away and lob grenades out at us, but man / let's see that face. Time to come out! Show yourself, man!

    Obviously low on brain power and intellectual integrity. The sheer arrogance of self-proclaimed "christians" who seem to think they speak for Christianity as a whole is as staggering as the way they rationalize their fear and hatred by poorly-digested religion. It would be fun to hear an educated liberal Christian debate this moron, but I suspect he'd

    The threats however are inexcusable and counter-productive.

    HE says there are threats.

    His veracity is questionable.

    I blame the Protestant Deformation and the advent of the printing press. Now every idiot thinks they know what is in scripture. The bible in the hands of the laity has proven to be a very dangerous thing.

    You're a sock/troll account of SouthBeach designed to ostensibly be a liberal but in actuality to straw-man liberal arguments. You also attack other liberals, though you're a liberal yourself.

    FAKE SOCK TROLL. And your profile text does not match in diction to your posting. SouthBeach fail.

    If the conservative tv host is really cutting a deal with the anti-gay "victims", this could be considered fraud since they are not publicly disclosing where the "donations" are being funneled to.
    Maybe some enterprising prosecutor will look into this if the "martyrs" keep materializing to bilk money out of the gullible.

    I also find it funny/sad that this mechanic is running around telling everyone that he's morally superior to the dirty gay people, but he's spent time in prison for assault and battery.
    What a stellar character for Republicans to shower with money.

    It doesn't surprise me this business coming out of Michigan with the same attitude as its midwest sister state Indiana (probably Ohio as well). Michigan is the "hunters paradise" state, when every start of fall hunting season, its like a work holiday, along with militia and Ted Nugent, guns in Michigan have been a mainstay for years within the white male heterosexual communities.

    I must say though surprised coming out of the Grand Rapids, MI area, which has been gay friendly for many years, more so than many other large cities within the state of Michigan. Which means the gays and gay friendly business have been here much much longer than this particular auto shop called Dieseltec. You can tell by how young, and white, the workers are at this business. Grand Rapids hosts west Michigan gay pride every June and summer is spent in nearby Saugatuck-Douglas, Fenville and Holland, where the boystown Chicago boys come to visit and spend money. This auto shop, being in Grand Rapids, should be boycotted by the other gay friendly or gay business within the surrounding area. Maybe the local gay community can force this business to move to a less gay friendlier part of Michigan, I am not sure why this auto shop owner with such religious conviction would stay in business in such a gay neighborhood, a 10 minute drive to Rumors, a gay dance club icon_confused.gif

    Because this business owner is a typical narrow minded bible thumping screwball, a self loathing closet case. As for Michigan in general, it is nowhere near as bad as either Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Granted it has its backward conservative areas but those are primarily on the more remote upper peninsula or in rural towns located south of I-94 near the Indiana border.

    Love it. Cummins is a familiar name to anyone into boating so very glad to see their announcement. Diesel engines sound redneck but there's a lot of nice people in the industry. My parents were friendly--not close friends but good acquaintances--with the Lehmans of Ford Lehman Marine Engine fame. I don't recall meeting the husband who was the inventor. But the wife seemed nice. Not someone most would immediately associate with diesels, unless it's the Vin Diesels.

    I vote FALSE FLAG> He and his buds tagged his own business to drum up additional headlines, which translates into donations, which equals dollars.

    I just don't buy it on these allegations. I need some evidence. What LGBT or supporter would F with a known homophobic hick? Not now, not ever baby.
