File this one under "fighting fire with fire!"
As homophobic and otherwise prejudicial lawmakers in certain areas of the country push to pass legislation effectively condoning commercial discrimination, some folks are pushing back the only way they know how!!!
Leading the pack is The Abbey in WeHo! Considered by many to be the most popular gay bar in the world, they've announced a new policy aimed at keeping out all those who keep hate in their heart!
And that includes legislators trying to push through an intolerant agenda!
So they've compiled the names and photos of all of them and dispersed them to the bouncers to ensure they never gain admittance!
David Cooley, the bar & restaurant's founder, released this statement:
“I want to send a message to all those people out there who conflate Christian values with discrimination: we don’t want your kind here… I’ve learned that I can’t stop crazy, ignorant or stupid, but I can stop it from coming through my doors.”
Maybe once these mean-spirited lawmakers get a taste of their own own medicine they'll think twice before trying to pass hurtful laws!
