A local printshop in Lexington Kentucky is facing the full hatred of the radical Homosexual Lobby.
Hands On Originals is a small apparel company owned and operated by devout Christians.
But when they unwittingly bid on and won a job to produce t-shirts for a local homosexual event, they felt it would send an inappropriate message.
It was only after winning the job that the owners learn that the t-shirts were covered in pro-homosexual propaganda...
Considering that Hands On [Un]Originals bid on a contract from an organization calling themselves, and this requires some emphasis, so bear with me:
Gay and Lesbian Services Organization of Lexington
I find this claim harder to swallow than a whole, living thoroughbred horse.
You probably already know what happened after that: They declined, and found a different company that would honor the price. Regardless, a boycott was started. Ho-fucking-hum, right? NOM did the same damn thing for when JC Penny hired Ellen. Oh, and a complaint was filed with the city's Human Rights commission over the discriminatory practice. Guess what?
Eugene has a problem with this:
But this was not good enough for the local homosexual activists.
You see they refuse to accept that the majority of Americans disagree with their lifestyles and agenda.
The group behind the t-shirt, the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization immediately filed a complaint with the government, charging the Christian apparel company with hate crimes.
Yep. Claiming that it was thought of as a "hate crime" rather than as discrimination.
And as ridiculous as that seems, it was taken seriously.
That's his emphasis. It doesn't seem to dawn on him that HE's the one being ridiculous.
Oh, it get's better:
Hands On Originals is now under investigation by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission -- a front for the Homosexual Lobby.
Wait, so a government organization who's sole job is to prevent discriminatory practices on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation, and has (except for orientation) done so for decades, is now a front for the Homogay Lobby? Do you speak English, or just Herpaderp?
But it gets even worse. The mayor of Lexington Jim Gray -- an open and radical homosexual activist -- has launched a public crusade against them, using his official position and power to punish the company who dared to oppose the Homosexual Agenda.
Ah, I see now, simply being open about your gay makes you a "radical homosexual activist", I guess in the same way being open about your atheism makes you "strident", "anarchic", and a "militant atheist". I'd also love to know what the fuck he is talking about, but my google-fu is failing me miserably here, only finding an article or two mentioning "stern words". It get's even funnier:
And he is causing serious financial problems for the apparel manufacturer.
The City of Lexington has done business with this local employer for years, but now Mayor Gray has put a stop to that.
Yeah, This is what I was talking about when I said my google-fu was failing. I can't find hide nor hair of this happening at all. The NEXT TWO things I can find, but the Mayor has little to no control over them, so I don't know what the dick this fuckwit is talking about here.
The Fayette County public school system -- another long time customer -- has put all orders on hold before the investigation is even complete.
The teachers have been ordered to boycott Hands On Originals for the foreseeable future.
And the University of Kentucky has joined with the school system and the City in this destructive boycott, announcing that it will not renew the contract for sports apparel that Hands On Originals has faithfully fulfilled for years.
Yep. Two organizations that the Mayor has little, if any, control over. And again my google-fu fails, as I cannot find anything on the teachers being told to boycott Hands On [Un]Originals. The other two are pretty easy to find, though. Go practice your GF if you want more on that.
The loss of all three customers is a serious blow to the company, and could very lead to its closing.
Good. Isn't that what NOM tried to do with Starbucks and JC Penny? Shut the hell up and go kill your own dick, you hypocritical piece of camel shit.
That public officials would use their authority to punish a thriving business for supporting Christian morals is absolutely disgusting.
In these harsh economic times it is criminal for Mayor Gray to destroy jobs and livelihoods -- all in the name of the radical Homosexual Lobby.
Because that's YOUR job, right, SUPERVISOR?
Afterwards this guy has the gall to ask us to call Governor Beshear to make UK and the Loudon school system buy from those bigots. Funny, I distinctly remember getting an e-mail from this guy asking be to join the NOM boycott before I started this blog back up. Should I have called the Governor of Virginia at that time to get him to force you to buy Starbucks and Shop at JC Penny?
Even better, he closes with this gem:
Everyone has the right to say no to the Homosexual Lobby.
An interesting corollary: Everyone has the right to say no to bigots like you.
