    Christian Mom Removes Kids From Gay Man’s Class Over His Lifestyle, His Response Is Fantastic


    “I wish you luck in finding an appropriate stage school that meets your needs, however from experience I find that theater without gays is like cooking without spices.”

    These narrow minded bible thumping screwballs never cease to amaze me with their blatant stupidity. They will even hurt their kids education just to advance their agenda of falsehoods and backwardness. It is no wonder that when these kids reach adulthood at 18 they flee from the dumb Christian parents and rarely communicate with them afterwords.

    Everyone forgets that Jesus ate and drank with publicans and sinners, and those only people " without sin" to cast stones, meaning don't throw stones because no one is innocent. It saddens me how Christianity has been hijacked by hateful and misinformed people

    While it is offensively sanctimonious, contrary to Jesus' own example of tolerance, and just simply ignorant in the most pejorative sense, this woman has the right to withhold her patronage from a business with which she objects, just as I avoid spending money at businesses that I know to be anti-LGBT.

    Even so, Michael Niri's response was nicely done.

    Christianity has not been hijacked. It's just that the "hateful misinformed" get the air time. At least she didn't strap explosives to herself and blow up the gay teacher while screaming "God is great!"

    I'm still trying to figure out what the "lifestyle" is - I just live my life. And as a Christian, I question the Mom's lifestyle of fear and hatred.

    I got the same crap from my nephew a few years ago. I asked him what part of my "lifestyle" he objected to: speaking several languages? being an Olympic coach? reading a lot and loving music? being faithful to one person and taking care of my elderly parents? Those are my "lifestyle." This woman's use of the word simply underlines her lack of any thought. But why think, when you can believe? It's so much easier.

    The air time, the megaphone, the pandering, the money... But you're right.

    Wait, she enrolled her kids in a DRAMA CLASS and she's surprised that the teacher is gay?

    Theater without gays isn't like cooking without spices; it's like cooking without food. Or a stove.

    Obviously she missed the Simpsons episode where this little gem was delivered:

    "Practically everyone who’s acted in, produced or even seen a play is gay."

    and while we are on the subject, i HATE when someone starts a sentence with......'well, i'm a christian and.............'
    stop hiding behind the bible. and you guys are right. the response from the teacher, especially the mixing of fabrics is an absolute classic........i wonder if her head exploded after reading that one.....

    This is nothing but a pineapple upside down wedding cake. Only not as delicious. It is the very same thing as a business bringing harm by discriminating in commerce by refusing service because she is using her purchase to bring harm. She's allowed to buy a gun, or not; she's just not allowed to shoot the shopkeeper with it.

    You seem well motivated but also you seem to be trying to force some impossible balance.

    Besides that I'm not sure this ever rose to the level of patronage (seems he was never seeking her support) but a matter merely of consumerism (she was buying product), the difference being that while someone has the right to live as they please, to be as bigoted as they want, have they the right to inflict their lifestyle upon others which is typical of proselytizers. No.

    If as a consumer you don't like (insert race here) people, you don't do business with them. End of story. You don't tell a person that you are not doing business with him because he is black. I just realized you're Asian so I'd like my deposit back? No. There's no balancing this with someone's rights to commerce or to live life as they please.

    She had the right to not engage to begin with or to simply walk away from her deposit and her purchase. Nothing gives her the right to use her purchase to inflict harm upon others. There is nothing here to balance.

    She's the one who stepped off that cliff.
