Controversial letter to lesbian couple sparks outrage

Surprised this hasn't been posted yet.

Quote:
A lesbian couple dining at a North Carolina cafe was handed a letter that decried homosexuality as being against God's will.

Arielle and Shawnee McPhail went to The Sting Ray Cafe in New Bern on Dec. 4, according to WCTI 12. On their way out, restaurant owner Ed McGovern approached the couple and handed them a letter asking them to reevaluate their lives.

The letter read in part (via WCTI):

[...] Please, look at your life. See how it hurt[s] everyone around you. And ask the Lord to open your eye[s] before it [is] to[o] late.
The Love of Christ

P.S. my daughter also was gay. It destroy[ed] her life and my grandson.

Visit WCTI to read the full letter.

"First of all, we didn't kiss. We don't kiss in public. We were holding hands," Shawnee McPhail told the station. "Secondly, if I did kiss my wife in public, what married couple would you go to and say, 'how dare you. You cannot hold hands and you cannot kiss in public therefore you deserve my judgement.'"

Since the news broke about the Sting Ray Cafe's anti-gay letter, the negative Yelp! reviews have been pouring in.

"What can I say? Any restaurant owner who hand delivers a letter to his customers, asking them not to return due to their being in a relationship of the same sex in his restaurant should be boycotted," wrote one Yelp! reviewer. "Classy job with the homosexual hate letters," wrote another. "Being an upstanding 'Christian' you refunded their money of course along with handing them the letter right?"

This is the second time in recent weeks that a gay couple has faced anti-gay sentiment while out for a meal.

Joel Diaz, the chief development officer for the AIDS Resource Center Ohio, recently wrote a blog for The Huffington Post describing a recent experience during which he and a friend were berated for "gay ****" while holding hands outside Mikey's Late Night Slice pizza truck in Columbus, Ohio. Fortunately, everyone in line defended the pair.

"The guys who work the truck stopped what they were doing and leaned towards the window and told him they would not serve him because he was spewing hate," Diaz wrote. "They said they support everyone in our community and that he should get out of line because they would not be serving him. He begrudgingly got out of line and walked away escorted by a friend who had been hanging back."
You can see the reviews here on Yelp:

If you really believe someone is going to hell for being gay wouldn't it be the morally right thing to tell someone to stop?

I fucking hate Christianity,Hate is a strong word but it describes my emotions perfectly towards that stupid cult.

All hail to Ulfric you are the High King
In your great honor we drink and we sing
We're the children of Skyrim and we fight all our lives
And when Sovngarde beckons everyone of us dies

We drink to our youth to the days come and gone
For the age of oppression is now nearly done

Did it destroy his daughter's life or his knowledge of basic English?

No because they're wrong to begin with. Stop trying to be edgy.

Re: Controversial letter to lesbian couple sparks outrage

This isn't news really is it. It's just some guy giving what he thinks is sound advice to some women. Sure he's wrong but I get given wrong advice all the time too, no need to make a thread every time it happens.
