In this new world of the orange nightmare’s administration, it’s okay to deny service to someone based on your religious or moral beliefs. The Supreme Court ruled on this very matter when a baker took the matter to the highest court in the land because the owners felt they had the right to deny service to a gay couple because it violated their religious beliefs.
Fast forward to this past weekend, location: Lexington, Virginia.
The owner of “The Red Hen,” a 26 seat restaurant in a small town of 7,000 asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave her restaurant. Sanders politely agreed, and it was all very civilized. Until Huckabee and the popular vote loser made it ugly, calling it “persecution.”
So, let’s see if we’ve got this straight. If it’s YOU denying service, it’s religious belief but if it’s you being denied the service, it’s persecution? Got it.
Some of the BEST responses to her Tweet:
- I REALLY DON’T CARE. DO YOU?
- Sarah Huckabee Sanders endorsed a child molester for the Senate. Maybe the owner of The Red Hen didn’t feel comfortable allowing her near small children.
- If you oppose gay marriage and immigration to this country, you don’t get farm to table dining. You picked a side in the culture wars, and it was the side without garlic scapes.
- Didn’t you morons get your panties in a wad defending the baker that didn’t want to make cakes for gay couples?
- I feel like you lucked out here. Most places would have just spit in the food.
and, my personal FAVE:
- It’s heartening that Sarah Huckabee Sanders was judged not by the color of her skin, but the content of her character.
