Hardware Store Owner Puts 'No Gays Allowed' Sign Back Up

Homophobic Jeff Amyx, who made national headlines back in 2015 for putting up a sign outside his hardware store that read "No Gays Allowed", has happily put that sign back up again after the Masterpiece Cakeshop ruling this week. 

The sign was originally posted back in the summer of 2015 at Amyx Hardware and Roofing Supplies in Grainger County, Tennessee after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality. He claimed the sign and policy was necessary because his religion has instructed him to be unneighborly toward a persecuted minority group. 

He even went further then that a couple of months later and started selling homophobic merchandise outside of his paltry little hung up sign. 

Now, that sign is back up at his business after the SCOTUS ruling, where he told local affiliate WBIR how surprised he was that the Supreme Court ruled in favor of fellow homophobe Jack Phillips. “I was really shocked because of the track record of our Supreme Court," he said.

Please—everyone go into this store, pick out a few hundred dollars worth of merchandise, let him ring up a total, and then calmly walk out the door with all of the unpaid merchandise left on the counter.  

This crap really reminds me of seeing public bathrooms in the 1960’s—MEN, LADIES, COLORED.

Why is ths a surprise? We can make all the excuses for SCOTUS and their little narrow ruling but the truth is that they purposefully punted on the issue,kicking the can down the road. It was cowardly, abhorrent ruling.

How does he feel about serving patrons in his store that are on their second or third marriage? Oh, I guess that's different. Long live adultery...

What this bigot does not realize is that it was a “narrow” ruling.  That means it only ruled in favor of the original case, not as setting precedent.  And the only time a ruling will be in favor again, using the cake case as an example, is when all of the criteria and exact situations match that case.  This dope thinks he has a Supreme Court at his back, but no such luck.  And my guess is he could not pick out a “gay” any more than he could a tie.

A "narrow ruling"  does not mean that it has no precedential value. It means that it is so idiosyncratic that it is not have wide applicability. In any event, hardware store owner could not claim any protection under the Masterpiece ruling because, while the owner might have sincerely held religious beliefs, the ruling does not protect a merchant of this type.

Thank you for the clarification​!  My co-worker is a lawyer and I attempted (with some failure) to illustrate that point!

I'm curious how he intends to identify such gays who wander into his store. As we all know Gaydar is the only way to tag a stranger who is gay- visual inspection is only going to lead to trouble. Oh, to be a fly on the wall =)

The ruling had nothing to do with refusing to serve a specific group of people. It was a procedural ruling on a "technical" lower court ruling. I hope they nail this bigot.

Hopefully his neighbors are smart and intelligent and know that there are other hardware stores...I mean why shop where the shovels are tainted with hate and the screws are just as cheap at the other hardware store.
