In Why I Support 'No Gays Allowed' , the head of NJ Pride (C.J. Prince) takes a rather practical approach to Jeff Amyx, owner of Amyx Hardware and Baptist minister(, who taped a "No Gays Allowed" sign to
his storefront window.
I particularly liked Prince's comments:
"The real problem I have is with all those underground haters. The ones who don't have a sign out front ... have the guts to come out...Then I'll exercise my capitalist right to shop from your competitor--and to proudly put my money where my allies are."Which, was what so many businesses indicated they would do in Indiana.
As a matter of legal principal, and as a matter of keeping uniform public access to public accommodation, the state should intervene if this person actually tried to enforce such a sign.
The owner, chickened out and put up a new sign, not as much fun, as it represents zero change from current commerce is:
"We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who would violate our rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion."
*Please note, due to scourge political correctness, I did not refer to him as a red neck, inbred, putative cousin humping, bible thumper.
