The gay coffee shop owner of Bedlam Coffee in Seattle kicked a group of Christians out of his shop earlier this month for simply being Christians.
Here’s the story from the Daily Caller:
A gay Seattle coffee shop owner kicked a group of Christians out of his coffee shop Sunday…
The owner heatedly tells the Christians to leave his shop immediately in a video posted to Facebook by Abolish Human Abortion, a Christian group seeking to end the practice of abortion.
“I’m gay, you have to leave,” the owner tells the group. “This is offensive to me. I own the place. I have the right to be offended.”
(The video below turns very vulgar at one point and even becomes profanely sacrilegious…even blasphemous, so watch at your own peril)
The group tried to explain that they hadn’t placed any in the shop, but the owner repeatedly told them to”shut up.”
“There’s nothing you can say. This is you and I don’t want these people in this place,” the owner says. The group asks why he can’t tolerate their presence, prompting the owner to ask them if they would watch him have sex with his boyfriend.
“Can you tolerate my presence? Really? If I go get my boyfriend and f*ck him in the a** right here you’re going to tolerate that? Are you going to tolerate it?” the owner asked. “Answer my f***ing question! No, you’re going to sit right here and f***ing watch it! Leave all of you! Tell all your f*cking friends don’t come here!”
According to the Liberator, the Christian group had been handing out pamphlets to Seattle locals on abortion, sin and the Bible. The group entered Bedlam Coffee to take a break and drink coffee when a barista went upstairs to tell the owner that the group was there.
“They had good coffee,” Caytie Davis, a group member, said. “It’s just too bad the service sucked.”
The Daily Caller has contacted the ACLU multiple times on this story and have yet to hear back from them in any way, shape, or form…
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has remained silent on the issue of a gay coffee shop owner kicking out a group of Christians, despite multiple requests for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The ACLU did not return multiple requests on an incident last week, when a gay coffee shop owner in Seattle, Wash., kicked out some Christians in his business for religious pamphlets they handed out.
TheDCNF emailed the national organization three times and called them multiple times looking for comment, as well.
Now to be fair, just because the ACLU isn’t responding to the DCNF doesn’t mean they aren’t pursuing this story. But I suspect if they were looking into it we might have heard something by now. If we do hear something we’ll let you know.
WARNING: There’s a disgusting insult to Christ in the video above that I absolutely refuse to publish. I can’t even bear to hear it again. If you post it in the comments I will delete your comment, no matter how many stars it may have. I’m sorry, but I just can’t bear it.
