Skip to comments.Westmoreland grocer wants to clear up gay rights controversy (Oregon)

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 ORiordan 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 owners Facebook page? ORiordan 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.

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.
Most amusing post I’ve read in a while
“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..
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.
Maybe they should turn against “Fudge Packers.”
And some disease-ridden child molester gave him AIDs.
Come on dude, get your priorities straight. The store owner was probably right.
Outrage of the depraved indeed. Oregon is a fascist state.
I find it strange that homos who routinely engage in very dangerous behavior health wise even care about eating healthy.
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.
She should offer fresh, unpacked Fudge.
Al Queerda strikes again.
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.

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