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.
