Restaurant Refuses To Serve Anti-Gay GOP State Senator Stacey Campbell Because Of His Hateful Agenda

Anti-Gay Tennessee Senator Stacey Campfield the force behind Tennessee’s “Don’t Say Gay” Bill got a taste of his own hateful medicine this weekend when the restaurant owner Martha Boggs of the Bistro at the Bijou in Knoxville refused to serve Campbell over his anti-gay statements and hateful agenda and told him to leave.

“I didn’t want his hate in my restaurant. I told him he wasn’t welcome here. … I feel like he’s gone from being stupid to being dangerous, and I wanted to stand up to him.”
 
Besides the Tennessee’s “Don’t Say Gay” Bill.  In recent months Campfield has asserted that bullying of gay kids “is a lark”, compared homosexuality to sex with animals, that homosexuality is “glorified” in the media, and that it’s “virtually impossible” for heterosexuals to contract AIDS and that AIDS was created by a gay man who had sex with a monkey.
 
Back2Stonewall.com applauds Martha Boggs for her courage and actions in standing up to this this hateful bigot.

  1. if the religious right tries to make a fuss of this situation, then they would be hypocrites. You see in opposing pro-gay laws in terms of employment and such, they argue that business owners should be allowed to make decisions based upon their “deeply held personal beliefs.” And in this case, it may be that a business owner had a “deeply held personal belief” that he/she wouldn’t serve homophobes.

  2. Way tuh go, Martha! We couldn’t be more proud of you here in Butler, PA the hometown of Rick Santorum. We’re standing tall and feeling proud because of people like you. We hope to be able to refuse service to Mr. Foamy Substance someday. Thanks for everything. What a shot in the arm!
