Ew. We were just poking around our friend Andy Towle’s website, Towleroad and came across his posting on the Farber Family: you know, the homo-hating landscapers who refused to serve a Houston gay couple.
As you may recall, the entire broo-ha-ha gained international attention after concerned citizens such as yourselves (and us) raised a stink. While the Farbers may be the newest gay anti-Christs, it seems some other Christ “loving” peeps absolutely adore the Farbers. And their business.
As The New York Times reports:
In an interview Friday, Sabrina Farber, 34, co-owner of the company with her husband, Todd, 37, said the company had picked up $40,000 in new business in the past two weeks, while losing only two clients worth about $500 each a year.
“I’m not saying that to gloat,” said Mrs. Farber, who described the frenzy as ugly and emotionally draining. But she said they would not do it differently and deserved credit for not masking their refusal with excuses.
Well, we suppose there’s something to be said about standing up for what you believe in, but this shit’s ridiculous.
So, you guys want to know why Garden Guy, Inc continues to make dough? Because gays aren’t included in Houston’s anti-discrimination laws.
We just lost our lunches.
