Anti-Gays Stickers Are in High Demand

Anti-Gay Stickers
People in Eastern Mississippi had enough about the gay agenda being peddled to them through social and traditional media and they have expressed this sentiment by buying anti-gay merchandise. The recipient of their generosity is Jeff Amyx’s hardware store.

Amyx, who owns Amyx Hardware in Washburn, Grainger County, Tenn., told local Knoxville-area ANC affiliate WATE that he has sold out of hats and bumper stickers that read: "No Gays Allowed" or "Choose God or Gays." Amyx previously attracted attention in July for placing signs in his window that read: "No Gays Allowed" and "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who would violate our rights of freedom of speech & freedom of religion."

Although Amyx claims to have received "bundles" of hate mail for posting the "No Gays Allowed" sign, he says that business has actually increased since he took a public stance. Due to customer requests, he began selling the hats and bumper stickers, which sold out in just a few days.

He says he's ordering more, and may begin selling shirts bearing the same messages. Amyx claims he is not making a profit off of the merchandise, offering it at cost to anyone who is interested as a way of making a statement about his personal religious beliefs.

"God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve," Amyx told WATE. "I just don’t agree with their lifestyle. I don’t want any part of it, I don’t want it around me, and I'll never agree with it."

Outside his store is a white board with a message asking people who agree with his stance to sign their names as a show of support. The board has over 300 signatures on it.

The very unpopular Tennessee Equality Project, which can only attract a handful of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender (LGBT)-supportive businesses across the Volunteer State as part of its "Tennessee Open for Business" program, responded to Amyx’s announcement, calling his actions "hurtful."

It may be hurtful to these few misguided folks, but that is truth. And as they say, truth hurts.
