Dear Mr. L [redacted]
I am appreciative of your time on the phone today and glad you contacted us. I need to tell you that we cannot meet with you because we choose not to work for homosexuals.
Best of luck in finding someone else to fill your landscaping needs.
All my best,
Todd and Sabrina Farber

The mind boggles.
Plus, it’s illegal to discriminate in this way, right?
Well the email is forwarding around the net and it’s got a lot of people adding some interesting posts to the Garden-Guy message board.
What is it with garden companies hating on gays anyway? Remember this post? Outside Pride Lawncare Hates Faggy CBS
Full rendering of the forward, inside.
