Audio: Idaho restaurant tells gays they need to repent, earns 'pro-family' martyrdom

by Jeremy Hooper

Expect to hear more of this in the days to come:


[Focus on the Family CitizenLink]

So who do these "family values" look like? Well, just check out the Waha Bar and Grill's own website, where owners Mike and Mari Fuller tell gays "are in need of repentance":

And not only that, but the company puts this stuff RIGHT ON ITS MENU. Check it out online. Right under the deep-fried twinkles (no, I'm not joking) and myriad of bar drinks (no, I'm not judging) there is a roundup of all of the companies that this local bar and grill considers too accepting for their liking.

But of course Focus on the Family would never tell you all that. They know that saying "Local restaurant tells gay customers they need to 'change' and therefore earns obvious scrutiny" would not play as well as putting these personally-targeted business practices under a deeply reductive and highly offensive "family values" umbrella.

I cannot tell you how sick I am of the aggressive shirking of responsibility. They dish, dish, dish, dish, dish, then rub and grab their victim costumes whenever anyone raises an eyebrow. It's really gross.
