Dear Kansas and Missouri business owners,
This letter is to Kansas and Missouri business owners who feel like their religious liberty is being violated by serving gay customers. HB2453 in Kansas recently died in the state Senate after the House voted to approve the measure. I understand that the “powers that be” are working on rewriting the bill so we can expect it to make a dreaded comeback soon enough. Now there is SB913 out of Missouri introduced by Senator Wayne Wallingford. It basically mirrors the Kansas bill.
Since these bills are taking up oodles of time and wasting tons of taxpayer dollars, I propose a simple solution-write to me if you business objects to serving gays and I will post it on my blog. We can start a discrimination…I mean anti-gay directory so the public will know where you stand on the issue. I mean why just keep it between you, your God and the customer you deny service to? Lets make it known so we can avoid any uncomfortable interactions in the future. The other added benefit of making anti-gay businesses public is those of us who aren’t gay can also decide whether or not we want to do business with you. I’m sure your concern over your religious intolerance extends to people who support those you are so against. Let’s have the free market work this whole thing out.
You can just write me your business name and a list of people you don’t want to do business with so we can be sure your religious convictions remain intact. We don’t have to limit it just to homosexuals since the Bible lists out so many things that are wrong.
Here’s an example of how the directory will work: Aimee’s Craft Shop Does not do business with: Gays, women who have had abortions, women who use birth control, people who have cheated on their spouses, liars, people who don’t honor their parents, etc.
Lets take the guesswork out of the entire thing and just put it out there. Why hide behind politics to do your dirty work? I know I am against spending my money at businesses who would deny service to homosexuals. If I need a plumber, I would like to know if they would fix the toilets of gay friends or not. That might help me make my decision. The least I can ask is that you let me know who you are. I’m sure others probably feel the same way I do.
So how about it? Lets give Topeka and Jefferson City a rest.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Yours in favor of the free market,
