Westmoreland grocer wants to clear up gay rights controversy (Oregon)
http://www.kgw.com ^ | April 4, 2014 | Reggie Aqui

Posted on 04/05/2014 12:20:47 PM PDT by lowbridge

A new Westmoreland grocery isn't even open yet and already its owner has created a controversy with statements she made online. But the owner told KGW Thursday she wants to make amends.

In about one week Chauncy Childs plans to open her natural grocer on Southeast Milwaukie Avenue. But after a series of postings she made on her Facebook page, she now finds herself at the often dangerous intersection where social media and gay rights meet.

The Moreland Farmer's Pantry will offer fresh produce, raw milk and foods that are free of genetic engineering.

Westmoreland resident Sean O’Riordan was looking forward to the store opening. But his neighbors started expressing concern to him.

“People were then starting to say, ‘Did you see the owner’s Facebook page?” O’Riordan said.

O'Riordan didn't like the store owner's posts regarding gay people and same sex marriage. For him it's very personal. He lost his gay brother to AIDS.

He lost his gay brother to AIDS.

At least his brother died doing what he loved best, not many can say that.

Not exactly the brightest thing for a “natural foods” grocer to say.

“He lost his gay brother to AIDS”

Strange isn’t it. When people lose loved one’s to lung cancer from smoking, they generally turn against the practice of smoking.

So you want to buy groceries or not?
If someones beliefs bother you that much then shop somewhere else. The store will have enough customers unless it is attacked by the homomafia and its lapdog media friends..

And when people lose a loved one to a disease that is transmitted through anal sex, they generally just lash out at anything that bears a semblance of decency.

It's called the outrage of the depraved.

With all the volatile reactions the far left has, I really don’t care anymore. Chick Fil-A’s another fast food option. Ender’s Game film and novel are decent, with the book, as usual, being better. Well, Mozilla’s Firefox has been on the decline, but that’s more than likely not going to change with a CEO jumping ship with a resignation.

And some disease-ridden child molester gave him AIDs.

Come on dude, get your priorities straight. The store owner was probably right.

That is exactly what is already happening. There is a boycott being organized by the lesbian owner of a beauty salon across the street from the grocery.
I know, ‘lesbian beauty salon owner’ is an oxymoron.

Typical gay mafia. He didn’t like her personal views so he took to the Internet and publicly shamed her and is trying to ruin her business.

I used to not really care too much about the gay marriage issue but I have become to despise their tactics. They are the most vicious, hateful people.

I know, why not open his own store and compete for business the American way? Oh that's right because they do things the queer ways which is to destroy anyone who dares to disagree with you!How dare we not embrace their debauchery, don't we understand how special they are? This is where I really agree with Putin, they don't allow homo recruitment with children while in America it's freakin government sponsored!

Why is everybody buckling under to the ridicule and pressure from 2-3% of the population? Tell these people they have a right to their own opinions but then so do you. There is a large enough majority of people in this country who will not pay attention to every minority groups’ temper tantrums and attempts to trample other people’s free speech.

Time to push back instead of allowing these people to control your destiny because you don’t agree with them morally and philosophically. Organize you own pretest against this lesbian “beauty parlor” across the street. Give them some of their own medicine.

There is no correlation between child molesting, being gay, and having AIDs. Pedophiles are a completely different breed of snake. Most gay adults get AIDs from unprotected sex. For that matter most straight people who get AIDs get it from unprotected sex. I knew a man who had a gay outcall service. Most of his customers were married men from the suburbs. The major local paper ran a series of articles on AIDs/HIV in 1985, and 1/2 his business was lost immediately.

The first thing I do when a new grocery store opens up is look up the owner on facebook to see if they agree with me politically. Seriously, WTF? What kind of hippy idiot does that?

That said the owner is too stupid for words for posting under her own name that businesses should have a right to refuse service to gays (”not that I would I ever do that”). Asking for trouble.

>>>>”O’Riordan didn’t like the store owner’s posts regarding gay people and same sex marriage. For him it’s very personal. He lost his gay brother to AIDS.”>>>>

Your brother died because his sick lifestyle is a breeding ground for HIV.

Probably closer to 1% of the population, but it is supported by 100% of the Media and nearly 100% of the Hollywood personalities that many people worship (as Homer Simpson noted, 'Is there anything that Hollywood stars don't know?'). Slap on top of that many of our politician critters, and nearly 100% of Academia -- and people get intimidated. You are right, they certainly should not. What is man compared to God? Yet men get afraid of scarecrows, and 'shouts' from Satan and his minions, and they abandon the Truth. They prefer the praise of man rather than that of God.
And here we are. Rather than the majority of society, and the Media, warning people trapped in the Sodomite lifestyle that they are destroying themselves - they 'celebrate' their choices - even if the choice is death and destruction.

Facebook is evil. One of my cousins deleted his account this week; I’m seeing him tomorrow I want to know what finally made him pull the plug. He used his real name on FB, which was mistake #1. But I digress.

AMEN: WTF do the deviants expect to happen when they indulge in the riskiest of risky “lifestyles”.

Speaking of shopping, I was looking at this earlier. Sad.

I find it strange that homos who routinely engage in very dangerous behavior health wise even care about eating healthy.

-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-

That’s because of two related things:

1. They worship the body. Their entire identity is tied up in the sexual behavior they prefer, so it only follows that they are obsessed with the instrument of that behavior.

We see the same thing in self-centered, shallow, promiscuous heterosexuals as well. It is multiplied in homosexuals because of identity being so closely linked to sexual urges and preferences.

2. They wish to offset the unhealthier aspects of their behavior. Even if they don’t consciously acknowledge it, deep down they know what they do is harmful to their bodies. The following of every health food fad is an attempt to undo the harm done to their bodies.

There is no correlation between child molesting, being gay, and having AIDs. Pedophiles are a completely different breed of snake. Most gay adults get AIDs from unprotected sex.

A child molester is not necessarily a pedophile.

Pedophilia or paedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children, generally age 11 years or younger;

A gay man who has sex with a 15 year old boy is a child molester, but not a pedophile. There are LOTS of gay men who will have sex with a teenage boy, but will also have sex with adult men when teenage boys are unavailable. Just like there are lots of straight men who would happily have sex with 16 year old girls.

I would also add, that per the definition, somebody who had sex with adults most of the time, but molested 10 year olds when the opportunity presented itself, would also not be considered a pedophile, because he did not have a “primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children”.

Of course there is, don't perpetuate that faggot propaganda.

Pedophiles are a completely different breed of snake.

Yes, they are, but pederasts are not. The queer agenda is to harvest new meat. Where do you think they come from..."born that way"?

Gimme a break.

The term for those filthy soddomites is "pederast", the term for their action is "buggery".

I never joined. People tell me I should. My whole family is on there, it would be easier to stay in touch with them. But I’m reluctant.

I’d be extremely loathe to make online comments under my own name. Employers look up their people and potential hires, people have been fired over pictures they’re posted and comments they’ve made.

Every once in a while youtube asks me if I wouldn’t like to change my google/youtube screen name to my actual name, I say no and it says “we’ll ask again later”. Don’t those goddamn idiots realize the benefits of anonymity? It allows you to be completely honest without fear of real life reprisals.

Same here. Same reasons.

A family member emailed me a FB page from one of my niece's husband bragging how he was drunk and high through high school. A. born loser

Facebook: As most of you know, I’m on there under a pseudonym. I have ~430 “friends” on FB, although only ~15 out of the 430 know who I really am.

The whole thing is a pile of bullsh*t. It’s there to show off that someone’s on a vacation or they got a new piece of jewelry. Or the blithering fools that can’t decide if they should have coffee or tea to drink. It a platform for “attention whoring”, period.

I gag when I see old slampieces on there preaching about marriage and their kids. They must have figured out how to roll back their “odometers”.

“My” birthday is coming up in two days on FB; I love the blather birthdays cause on FB. Again, it’s a pile of bullsh*t, pure and simple.

It’s Sunday, so go in peace, to love and serve The Lord. Amen and L’Chaim to you all.

At what point do the nationalized efforts (interstate activities) of the lavender mafia cross into the arena of "racketeering" when they seek through threat and intimidation to put a person out of business?

Not that Eric Withholder's Injustice Department would bother prosecuting them for it.
