‘[Redacted] Racist Sons of B*****s From Hell’: Wedding Venue Gets Threats, Fears Shut Down After
The Blaze ^ | 8/9/13 | Billy Hallowell

Posted on 08/09/2013 1:55:52 PM PDT by Nachum

Another business is facing retribution for declining service to a same-sex couple. Betty and Dick Odgaard, owners of Görtz Haus Gallery in Grimes, Iowa, are catching the ire of gay rights advocates after they declined offering their venue to Lee Stafford and his fiance Jared.

Now the owners, who are Christians, are receiving vicious and threatening emails and phone calls — and they fear that their business could shut down because of the fierce reaction.

It was less than one week ago that the Lee and Jared entered Görtz Haus looking for additional information about holding their wedding there. After Dick realized that it would be a gay ceremony, he told the couple that they would not be able to hold their nuptials at the establishment — and that’s when the controversy erupted.

“It started with emails and we noticed the emails were from a person with a name that looked like a man’s name. We’re a little suspicious about it and … two fellows walked in and that’s where it all began,” Dick told TheBlaze on Friday. “It was obvious what the situation was. I had to confirm it. I asked if this was a gay marriage celebration and I said we can’t take your money for this.”

Put pictures of happy male and female couples all over the walls and a picture of Jesus behind the stage and a big ten commandments by the door.

Then see if they still want to hold it there, just double the price since there are two of a kind.

I don’t know what has happened to the world.

It happened so fast.

One minute Marriage was a Sacrament blessed by God, the next it is a perverted sex act blessed by Satan.

If these people wish to go against nature and have sex with each other, instead of the opposite sex, that is their preference and their misfortune. Do not bring the wrath of God down on the rest of us by breaking the traditions that have held forth for 3,000 years. I do not now , nor will I ever accept same sex marriage.

The wedding planners should explain to the judge that their phobia of queers is so bad they get violently ill in their presence, and don’t want to embarrass their customers with puke.

At least Putin loves Russia, and he knows Obama hates America,
which would explain Putin’s disgust for Obama.

It is becoming clearer what the sodomites wanted in the first place. Demand that the state recognize their "civil rights" to homosexual marriage... THEN DEMAND that if any person, business, church or synagogue refuses to "celebrate" the sodomite homo god that those businesses, persons or churches be PROSECUTED for discrimination!

We're there!

Good idea about charging more. Tell them part of the price is for a large donation going to a Bible school because that’s just ‘who they are’.

I think he’s disgusted because he can’t support the Islamist wing of the Soros communist-Islamist alliance which put Obama in power here. Putin is neither stupid nor suicidal.

One wonders if this entire chain of events was a set up from the get-go. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time a business got ambushed by some activist group.

What happened to freedom of association? To answer my question, here is an interesting quote from the Wikipedia article on the subject:

Because freedom of association necessarily
recognises pluralistic sources of power and organisation, aside from the government,
it has been a primary target for
repression by all dictatorial societies.

What business in this dilemma need to do is adopt a “poison pill” strategy: just make it clear that all profits from gay weddings be will be donated to the FRC or another similar organization. And keep track of all the hate mail and demand that the proper authorities investigate.

One minute Marriage was a Sacrament blessed by God, the next it is a perverted sex act blessed by Satan.

This is satan's attempt to mock God in satan's own kingdom.
Isaiah 14:
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

During the Vietnam war you would often see T-shirts with the logo, "Nuke 'em all; let God sort 'em out."

Evidently, the sentiment goes much further back in time.

What is the origin of the phrase, "Kill them all, let God sort them out"?

"it's often erroneously attributed to Patton, but the "Kill them all, for surely God will know his own" generally considered the source of the sentiment is attributed to an Abbot of Citeaux during the Crusades, Arnaud-Amaury."

After reading the umteenth story of this type, I'm tempted to say, "Nuke US all, God will sort us out!"

"Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!"

It’s not that we think ‘Russian Dictators look good’, but Putin is actually doing for his country what we wish our leaders would do for our country. I must admit, I admire him, not for what he is, but for what he is doing for his country........
