Atlanta Landscaper Denies Service to Gay Couple Says Their Marriage is a ‘Perverse Foolish Delusion’

Stuart Dinenno a landscaper and  owner of Botanica Atlanta Landscape Design in Atlanta, Georgia, refused service to a gay couple because according to him their marriage is “perverse and foolish” and a “delusion.”

In  a review of Dinenno’s company on Yelp Colton S. of Sandy Springs Georgia wrote:,  “Contacted today about a very large project in Sandy Springs. The owner asked if the work was for me and my wife, I said no me and my husband and he replied that he wouldn’t be interested in working with us.”

The homophobic bigot Dinenno actually had the nerve to reply to to the review on YELP saying:  “Yes, this is an accurate description of what happened. When doing a large landscaping project it is necessary to work with the homeowners closely over several months through the design and installation phases. I can’t do that, all the while going along with the delusion of two men calling themselves a married couple, with one man referring to the other man as his husband. It’s very perverse and foolish, and needs to be called out as such.”

Georgia has some of the weakest civil rights protections for our citizens in the nation. Georgia has no law that prevents private employers from discriminating on the basis of an employee’s race; no law that prevents local businesses from refusing service to patrons because of their religion; and no law preventing landowners from refusing to rent or sell to our citizens based on their sexual orientation or gender identity
