In a recently released video from the group Abolish Human Abortion, a pro-life advocacy group, a gay coffee shop owner can be seen berating, insulting, and forcing the removal of the Christian group because of their beliefs.
Great American Politics asks: What if LGBT activists, who had been handing out literature on the street promoting their lifestyle, went into a café owned by a Christian, only to have the Christian owner refuse to serve them because of their beliefs?
There would be a lawsuit filed against the Christian for violating the civil rights of the LGBT activists. Chances are, the courts would find the Christian guilty, order them to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages, which could end up forcing the Christian to close or sell his or her business.
That’s what’s been happening to many Christian business owners ever since Barack Obama squatted in the White House. We’ve seen Christian florists, bakers, photographers and even owners of venues sued by LGBT individuals because the Christians politely refused to be part of an LGBT ceremony, even after explaining that it goes against their faith. In some of the cases, the Christian business owner recommended one or more their competitors to the LGBT couples, but that was not sufficient to the LGBT activists.
LGBT activists constantly demand that everyone tolerate them and their abominable lifestyle, but they turn out to be the most intolerant of others.
Such is the case of a coffee shop owner in Seattle.
The Christian group had been on the street, handing out prolife literature and peacefully trying to witness (share their faith) with anyone who would listen. After spending time engaging the public, the group decided to take a break, grab a cup of coffee and sit down where they could relax.
They chose Bedlam Coffee for their break. The group left their literature outside, went into the coffee shop, got their coffee and went upstairs to a lounge. They were not talking to anyone else about their faith. They were peaceful and quiet.
That’s when the owner of the coffee shop, Ben Borgman, burst into the lounge, informed the Christians that he is gay and then told him they had to leave. The encounter was videoed and posted on Facebook, but I will not post the video here due to the offensive language used by Borgman, especially his prolific use of the ‘f’ word. Here is transcript of part of the interaction be Borgman and the Christians:
So, you’re not willing to tolerate our presence?” Sutherland asked.
“Will you tolerate my presence?” the man responded. Sutherland assured him they would. “We’re actually in your coffee shop,” he said.
“Really?” the owner demanded. “If I go get my boyfriend and f*ck him in the a** right here you’re going to tolerate that?”
“That would be your choice,” Sutherland answered. But the owner would not be persuaded. “Are you going to tolerate it?” he asked again. “Answer my f***ing question! No, you’re going to sit right here and f***ing watch it!”
“Well, we don’t want to watch that,” said Caleb Head, another abolitionist.
“Well than I don’t have to f*cking tolerate this!” the man said. “Leave! All of you. Tell all your f*cking friends, don’t f*cking come here.”
The abolitionists agreed to leave, but Davis took the opportunity as they left to share the message of salvation through Jesus Christ. “Just know that Christ can save you from that lifestyle,” she said.
“Yeah, I like a**,” the owner responded. “I’m not going to be saved by anything. I’d f*ck Christ in the a**. Ok? He’s hot.”
Note the abject hypocrisy here! When Indiana Pizza shop Memories Pizza merely said they couldn’t cater a gay wedding to the wrong journalist looking for a head to hunt, they were threatened, vandalized, and harassed to no end. When Colorado baker Jack Phillips refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding ceremony, politicians tried to force him into reeducation programs, and called him a Nazi.
Apparently, if you fall into a protected group, you can be as bigoted and intolerant as you please, while demanding everyone else straight up applaud you for so much as breathing out of your right nostril.
