Store Owner Posts ‘No Gays Allowed’ Sign After Cake Decision

Christian love: Tennessee hardware store owner puts up “No Gays Allowed” sign after the recent Masterpiece Cakeshop decision.

In yet another example of anti-gay, Christian hate, an East Tennessee hardware store owner celebrated the recent Supreme Court Masterpiece Cakeshop decision by posting a “No Gays Allowed” sign in the front window of his rural hardware store.

Jeff Amyx, who owns Amyx Hardware & Roofing Supplies in Grainger County, Tennessee, about an hour outside of Knoxville, is also a Baptist minister with a long and well documented hatred for LGBT people.

In 2015 Amyx first posted a sign in his store declaring “No Gays Allowed” after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay marriage.

And after the Supreme Court’s Masterpiece Cakeshop decision was announced earlier this week, Amyx once again posted a “No Gays Allowed” sign in his store window, according to a report from WBIR.

  • @OP – Jeff Amyx, who owns Amyx Hardware & Roofing Supplies in Grainger County, Tennessee, about an hour outside of Knoxville, is also a Baptist minister with a long and well documented hatred for LGBT people.

    The obvious response for those with moral scruples and respect for their fellow citizens, is boycott his shop AND his church – leaving him and his hateful bigots to fester in their own ignorance, hatred, and diminishing revenues!

    Any protest, should have placards or notices listing/advertising nearby or online alternative hardware suppliers.

  • Straight men in drag — and there are some — would, I assume, have no trouble there, as they pick up their hardware goods.

    If my sign on my door reads “no christians allowed”.
    What do you think will happen?

    Actually I have observed that some people do put notices on their doors:

    No cold-callers,
    No door-to-door salesmen,
    No junk mail,
    No Jehovah’s Witnesses,
    Tradesmen by appointment only.

    Apparently there ARE restaurants where no lying bigots are allowed – in the interests of up-holding standards!
