Dieseltech Owner Tries — and Fails — to Defend Himself

Dieseltech Owner Tries — and Fails — to Defend Himself April 20, 2015

After the uproar over his public declaration that he would refuse to fix the vehicle of anyone who is “openly gay,” the owner of Dieseltec in Grand Rapids posted a lame and dishonest attempt to defend himself to Facebook. He managed to shove a whole lot of stupid and inconsistent into only a few paragraphs.

An unbelievable amount of things have been said about me but the most prevalent has been the idea that Jesus wouldn’t have turned away homosexuals (or similar type statements). He wouldn’t. However, Jesus did not have young children to protect.

Seriously? You think that if you fix a gay person’s car, they’re going to hurt your children? Are you really that fucking stupid and bigoted?

My family can not watch TV or go to very public places anymore without being exposed to a disturbing amount of evil. What rights are the LGBT fighting for? Is it the right to expose our children to their naked bodies while participating in a gay pride parade? How is that equality?

What does that have to do with you discriminating against gay people, exactly? Oh, nothing. Right.

I am not a hateful person. I am a frustrated person. The environments that I have control over (where I am responsible for what occurs) including my business and my home will be protected from evil to the best of my ability.

See, that’s your problem. You think the very existence of gay people is “evil.” Because you’re a bigot and an ignoramus. But why just gay people? Do you refuse to fix the cars of people who are divorced? The Bible calls divorce a sin just like homosexuality. Do you refuse to fix the cars of, say, people who commit violent crimes? People like…you, coincidentally, since you were convicted of assault and battery. That sounds a lot more “evil” than being gay to me.

When I encounter people in public I am an all inclusive and loving person (well I try hard to be, we are ALL sinners). This is evidenced by my firm dedication to public service as a Firefighter and a Paramedic for many years.

Wow, that’s something you rarely see — a reverse ad hominem. You’re a good person because you do something totally irrelevant to the issue at hand. Well played, sir. Still dumb and irrelevant, but I’ll give you a 9.5 for the attempt.

I understand that most of you in opposition to me, need me to be a bad person to help you justify your own hurt and need for healing.

Wait, the guy who repeatedly calls all gay people “evil” is complaining that others see him as a bad person? That’s just precious.

I did not choose to single out homosexuality. The media and many of you did that.

That’s a rather ridiculous lie. No one came and asked you for your opinion, you were the one who publicly declared that you would discriminate against gay people, totally unsolicited. Do you really think people are stupid enough to buy this bullshit?
