WEST HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) Southern California lawmakers who support legislation to discriminate against gays and lesbians now have one less hotspot to visit in West Hollywood.
David Cooley, the founder of The Abbey Food & Bar located at 692 North Robertson Blvd., has announced the popular gay bar will add any legislator in any state who votes for bills to allow for discrimination against LGBT people to a Deny Entry List.
In a statement, Cooley said The Abbey will also display headshots of each state representative who support bills on the security list, including Kansas House Bill 2453, Arizona Senate Bill 1062, Idaho House Bill 426, Ohio House Bill 82 and other similar proposals.
I want to send a message to all those people out there who conflate Christian values with discrimination: we dont want your kind here, Cooley said. Ive learned that I cant stop crazy, ignorant or stupid, but I can stop it from coming through my doors.
The move isnt the first time The Abbey has waded into state politics: when gay marriage was still illegal in California in May 2012, the bar announced a ban on all bachelorette parties, which it called an offensive heterosexual tradition that flaunts marriage inequality.
The Abbey, which features a rainbow-colored cross as its logo and touts itself as the Best Gay Bar In The World, also called on other local restaurants, hotels, and other retailers that appreciate their LGBT customers to enact similar bans.
Illegal for the same reasons that businesses cannot deny service to homosexuals.
A crushing blow!
Why would anyone straight want to go to a gay bar?
Oh, snap! Denied entry to a faggie joint! Oh the huge manatee!!
Yes, I’m aware of the roaring double standard. Faggies routinely get away with what would get normal folks arrested in a heartbeat.
What’s next? Faggie tourists boycotting entire states!!?
Aside from gay lobby grandstanding, this means nothing.
I might just go there and proclaim I am a Christian who supports those kinds of bills. Have them refuse me service, and then head to the nearest lawyer. Hello payday.
“The Abbey, which features a rainbow-colored cross as its logo”
Blasphemy which won’t be amusing at the End. Just sayin’
It would be funny to see a church fill a gay bar and start reading Romans 1 and some other choice verses. Would that be a hate crime?
lol. Oh Lord.
Well, I’m not a lawmaker, but put my name on the list.
For the same reason gays sought out a Christian business.
To stir up crap and bully them with lawsuits
Hmmm, guess that means that other bars can “bar” those who support gay legislation, eh?
This is gonna get nasty, and I really no longer give a smelly Obama about gays...or anything they say or do.
Shove it...just keep your shoving and moaning in a soundproof room.
If you use the toilet at The Abbey Food & Bar you might catch AIDS.
Best course is to shun a queer establishment
hmmmm sounds like a lawsuit is needed to MAKE THEM serve non-gays!
By the time Obama is driven from the White House it will be against the law for parents to teach their children that homosexualism is abnormal.
Or for parents to say anything or take any action that contradicts the pro-homosexual education their children receive in the government schools.
The Feds will also require all heterosexuals to undergo Sexual Readjustment and Reorientation at a FEMA camp.
Yep, absolutley illegal, I would suggest a lawmaker go, get denied, and then sue them out of existance. Use their same tactics against them.
LOL! Oh, the irony!
Bingo! What is sauce for the activist goose, is sauce for the gander.
