The owner of a small chain of Asian restaurants two in Greenwich Village, of all places canceled a same-sex wedding party after saying gay and feng shui dont go together, a lawsuit charges.
Newlyweds Barrett Greene and Thomas Eng say the owner violated their civil rights. Greene, 50, is a plumbing contractor from upstate New York, and Eng, 38, is a Manhattan-based computer professional.
They met on a cruise ship in 2004 and had a jet-setting romance before deciding to make it official with a wedding this summer.
They decided to have a rehearsal dinner at Amber Village, and also have their big day catered by the Asian fusion joint at Sixth Ave. and 10th St.
The couple contends that later that same day, a senior manager of Amber Village a man identified only as Mr. Fong summoned Ho.
Fong was visibly angry and told Ho that he didnt want any gay parties at Amber Village, the suit charges.
Fong instructed Ho to make an excuse and tell Greene that his rehearsal dinner could not take place at Amber Village and that his wedding could not be catered by them either.
Fong also told Ho that it's very bad for Amber Village to book gay parties and that big groups of gay partyers are especially bad for feng shui.
Feng shui is an ancient art that dictates where objects should be placed in a room to promote harmony and good fortune.
Restaurant owner Qi Yeng Lin did not return calls, but the manager of the Christopher St. location said he was surprised by the allegation.
Feng shui has to do with luck and fortune. It has to do with where do you put your plants and flowers, your furniture.

Seems like the bitches are pissed.
Greene showed Eng his "plumber's crack" while on a house call one day, and the two have been in love ever since.
Sexual practices that promote disease, vs cultural practices that date back thousands of years, that promote peace and harmony.
Logically, feng shui should win.
“Seems like the bitches are pissed.”

As I look at the wet chunks on the floor, I suddenly remember I had a bean-rice-cheese burrito from El Pollo Loco for dinner.
The skinney one.

It’s related to Taoism, their concept of God is revealed in nature in how everything in the natural environment is placed in a perfect order which allows energy to flow through the world in a natural way. They believe that when they build an artificial environment, a building or a home, that things have to be placed in a certain balance or order that allows spiritual energy to flow thru the house or else there may be sickness or unsuccessful business. They extend this theory of flow into how a person’s life has to follow a natural order or it results in that person being out of balance and bad things occurring in their life.
So, basically, they’re saying that these people are not following the path of nature, are unnatural, essentially, and exude imbalanced or unnatural energy that can affect others in their surroundings in a negative way, and they don’t want their imbalance to alter the balanced energy of their establishment.
As a Christian, I have to say the Taoists and the Christians opinions on this subject are a view of the same mountain from different directions...
I’m not an expert on Taoism, but I had a martial arts teacher who knew something about it, and he said the original purpose of the 5 animal martial arts systems was that each animal represented a different elemental energy, each had an exercise for different parts of the body and the psyche. He perceived an excess of a certain elements in me, which led to his teaching me some Tiger (Hu Quan), he said to balance this excess. I fell in love with it...and as I’m getting older now, I’m very grateful; it’s been a blessing to my health and a practical help against trouble...that’s the source of the very little I know about this subject.
Can't, or shouldn't, put a square peg in a round hole. Just wasn't meant to be.
