Gay Couple Told Not To Return To East Texas Restaurant
http://dfw.cbslocal.com/ ^ | 05/30/2014 | Joe Gomez

Posted on 05/30/2014 7:17:41 AM PDT by massmike

A couple says they were told not to come back to a restaurant in East Texas because they’re gay.

In the town of Pittsburg, Texas, Big Earl’s Bait House and Country Store is an institution. So Collin Dewberry and his partner Kelley decided to have breakfast there. He says everything seemed to be going fine until they paid their check and were approached by their waitress on the way out.

“She told them the rules are on the door and it says ‘Welcome to Big Earl’s where men act like men, women act like ladies, no saggy pants and we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.’”

“And so I laughed and I asked what do you mean?” says Dewberry. “And that’s when she said to us… ‘to put it plainly, we don’t serve fags here.’”

Big Earl Cheney, the owner,says the reason Dewberry and his partner were asked not to return was because of their actions.

“What I saw was one of them half way under the table with his legs stretched out into the other guy’s lap. And he kind of looked really possum eyed at me as they say it in East Texas, he kind of looked at me like ‘uh-oh’.”

Cheney says he refuses to admit the couple back into his restaurant.

He continued, “I’m not gonna have people coming in here with their butt showing; I’m not gonna have people coming in here naked; I’m not gonna have people coming in here having sex on the tables.”

Dewberry maintains they were doing nothing wrong and were discriminated against.

“Nobody deserves to be treated disrespectfully at an establishment that just seconds ago accepted their money.”

“And that’s when she said to us… ‘to put it plainly, we don’t serve fags here.’”

And I'm completely fine with that.

They grow'em big in Texas.

Of course, we see the gay parade descending on his establishment. And like every white, straight dude, it will probably cost him his business.

(1) The money was for the food. It wasn’t for a ticket. (2) The sign on the door.

Queers as negros.

Thats the narrative.

Its a civil right to be a pervert, and everyone else has to genuflect to you.

If you want sex with breakfast order room service.

I can remember a time, long, long ago, in a far away galaxy, a planet where this sign was quite common:

“We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.”

You have no right to free association any more. This owner will lose. Which is not the same as saying he should acquiesce. There a more subtle ways of discouraging perverts from patronizing your establishment, including summoning some local “regulars” who may take violent offense to the presence of bungholers in their midst.

The difference between homos and racial minorities is that there’s no way to “tell” that someone or some couple is homosexual except by their actions.

Don’t crawl into another guy’s lap while eating in the restaurant and there’ll be no problem.

I have a hard time believing that the incident happened exactly as described. I bet there is more to the story, such as intimate behavior which belongs behind closed doors, which caused them to tell these guys not to return.

I seriously doubt the waitress said “we don’t serve fags here” in those exact words.

...and if they had just eaten their meal quietly and left,no one would have known WHAT they were!

But that defeats the whole purpose of being homosexual these days,apparently.

If you want sex with breakfast

Not directed at you, but there's no such thing as "sex" between two people of the same gender. For sex you need two sexes.

Yeah, the Public Accommodation aspect of the Civil Rights Act means that private property is no longer private if it is a public business. Signs that state they can refuse service to anyone are purely a delusion.

It wouldn’t shock me in the least if the butt pirates set up the place because they expected that outcome and wanted to win a juicy lawsuit.

Honestly unless they started doing something overt how would the staff have even known they were gay?

That is their only defense, but it is a ‘he said’ vs. ‘she said’ situation and if they claim that the server said “we don’t serve fags here” then her testimony is deep sixed. They would need a passel of witnesses to have any chance in court.

A bunch of raging fags are going to descend on this town like nobody’s business. Things are going to get broken.

Pray that the residents remain strong against the Gaystapo tactics.

I take it that they've never pulled a building permit, paid a traffic ticket, dealt with a DMV, went to Social Security....

I seriously doubt the waitress said “we don’t serve fags here” in those exact words.

What if it is exactly as presented: Do you support the right of a business to turn away any business they please for any reason? I do.

This is likely another homo hoax "crime." But the media, the faggot-in-chief and his goons, and Unholywood will believe the homos' word despite any evidence.

Obviously, this happened and someone, the two guys or other called the media who would find this story of interest. I feel sorry for the business, “Big Earl’s” myself to have to deal with this. Now, they could have people coming in, all about this story.

I am ok with this. Although I think immediately when he saw the behavior he should have kicked them out instead of waiting until they finished eating and paid.

Put up a sign saying no displays of affection permitted. They can enjoy their meal, pay the bill, and find somewhere else to dine if they can’t keep their hands off each other, or legs or whatever.

***

So do I, but I know of a bakery which lost a suit brought by a gay “couple” because the bakery refused to bake a cake for their “wedding.” These sodomites only need to assert discrimination and the corrupt liberal courts will force businesses to serve them.

That right to refuse service is yet another right being taken away.

The waitress actually said: "We don't serve figs here."

And they don't. Good figs are hard to come by except in season.

Wish I had a private jet so I could get a big crowd of people together, go down there, and patronize the heck out of Big Earl’s.

No fags...awesome.
