I really like the voicemail message.

I’m sure the gay libs will do everything in their power to destroy the store’s business.

I’m ambivalent about the entire issue. I have a gay sister who drives me nuts but there are skeletons in every closet.

They have every right to refuse to sell, but they also have to take responsibility for the repercussions for treating a customer like this.

I don't see why it should be any business of the store owner what she wants to use the wedding dress for. Strange this happened in New Jersey of all places.

I wonder if the customer was trying to provoke the store.

It’s in the Constitution! “A private business cannot refuse service to anyone who’s wearing a shirt and shoes.”

It’s the Good and Plenty clause.

When will people “get it?”

It will never be good enough for them. Even if they had every right a normal couple had and were looked at completely the same, they would still make an issue.

Many of these people have psychological issues and many that are semi normal are doing it for the attention it gets them. It’s a self and socially destructive behavior (yes, there is a choice) and the only thing that has changed is that today as a society we have decided to give this group of people benefits intended for couples and specifically child rearing families that keep society going.

Why is it they want to stick everything in everyones face.Why not just leave that line blank on the form if you really want the dress?Is it because they want to try to hurt businesses who may disagree with their perversion?

Lesbians? Is this thread about lesbians?

Without going in to great detail I can say that without question you can have fun with a woman who call themselves “A Lesbian”. Now I’m not talking the ones that are like guys, I’m talking about the kind that any guy thinks is smoking hot. They can be fun and entertaining and under the right conditions they can be made to forget that lesbian thing.....

Why does the store need the groom’s name?

Interesting and revealing comments on the thread. Where do the rights of mentally ill sex perverts trump the right of a private business? Usually "mentally ill sex pervert" trumps everyone and everyone, including great teachers who take advantage of their Constitutional right of freedom of speech (link below this comment).

We don't know everything about this story, but there is a strong possibility the mentally ill sex pervert did this to goad the store into reacting so they can be sued and dragged into court. Happens all the time. And to those who think money is god and moral principles worthless, this is the very attitude that has brought us into the abyss.

Oh, and same sex "marriage" has been pushed not because very many homosexuals actually want to "marry", but to destroy the natural family and create a revolution in society. In their own words, will post quotes below.

Seems to me there’s a big difference between selling somebody a dress and similar situations where someone is asked to actually be at and participate in the wedding, as a photographer, for instance.

I would sell anybody a dress, no problem. It’s not my job to ride herd on what they do with it.

The photographer I can understand deciding not to participate.

God bless this woman and her business. Seems like the time is coming when we’re all going to have to make a stand.

Opens up a whole network of opportunity for LGBT bridal gear businesses to open up and cash in...in fact, it sounds like they’re providing a big stimulus to LGBT small business and employment. Freedom’s a wonderful thing, if you don’t like the way somebody does business, why sue them if you know how to do it better? GO do it better. You’ll succeed or you won’t, if you do, others are likely to adopt your point of view. But if it’s a fail, dictating fail by fiat because your feelings got a booboo is chopping off your head to cure a headache.

I’m gettin’ kinda libertarian on a lot of this stuff.

“She said she wouldn‘t work with me because I’m gay…she also said that I came from a nice Jewish family, and that it was a shame I was gay. She said, ‘There’s right, and there’s wrong. And this is wrong.’ “

Sounds like the store owner gave her a lickin'!
