The rumble in the jungle over a landscaper refusing to do work for homosexuals has made its way from internet dustup to ithe Houston Chronicle. Columnist Rick Casey does an excellent job of summarizing the event’s details.
At 9:08 a.m. Farber, who together with her husband, Todd, owns Garden Guy Inc., a landscaping company on Hillcroft, hit “send” on a message that delivered a painful blow with the verbal equivalent of a smiley face.
Yadda yadda, webernet firestorm, and then Rick ties a neat bow around the story in his closing graphs.
Were I posting [on the Garden Guy message boards], I would commend the Farbers for standing by their principles in an age where money trumps all.
They might, however, consider climbing up one more rung on the moral ladder.
They should refuse to do business with all sinners.
WHOA. Jesus Chris, indeed.
