Some businesses in Mississippi have responded to the passage of a bill that would allow businesses to discriminate against LGBT people by putting stickers in their windows saying “We don’t discriminate: If you’re buying, we’re selling.” For some weird reason, the American Family Association thinks this amounts to the bullying of Christians.
In response to passage of that bill, owners who want the business of homosexuals are now posting blue, circular window stickers that incorporate the rainbow colors typically associated with homosexual activism.
Buddy Smith, executive vice president of Tupelo-based American Family Association, offers his take on the sticker campaign.
“It’s not really a buying campaign, but it’s a bully campaign,” he says, “and it’s being carried out by radical homosexual activists who intend to trample the freedom of Christians to live according to the dictates of scripture.
“They don’t want to hear that homosexuality is sinful behavior – and they wish to silence Christians and the church who dare to believe this truth.”
Really? If other people choose not to discriminate and advertise that fact, this is a “bully campaign” against those who demand the right to discriminate? You really don’t have a fucking clue what bullying is, do you?
