East Tennessee hardware store owner, Jeff Amyx, who owns Amyx Hardware & Roofing Supplies in Grainger County, added a ‘No Gays Allowed’ sign because gay and lesbian couples are against his religion. No word on whether Amyx refuses to serve any other people who are “sinners” in his eyes.
The Bible says “he who is without sin cast the first stone.” Don’t try to buy those stones at Amyx Hardware though if you are gay, you will need to meet your casting stones needs elsewhere.
What is better than my jokes about Mr Amyx’s terribly stupid sign is the reaction he has gotten on the internet via “reviews” of his homophobic, bigoted business. Check out this sampling from YP.com :
I wonder if Amyx would sell hardware supplies to a gay person who wanted to fix up their home to move away from that East Tennessee community? I would think that would create quite a conundrum for him. Sell them supplies so they can move or refuse service and have a gay person who can’t leave as his neighbor? What will he do? Regardless, I predict he will have plenty of time to consider that and other scenarios as he sits at home unemployed after his business goes under.
