“He said he decided to get married, and before he got through I grabbed his hand and said, 'I am sorry. I can't do your wedding because of my relationship with Jesus Christ,'” said Stuzman.
“We hugged each other and he left, and I assumed that was the end of the story.”
Robert Ingersoll, who went to the local news and his partner, Curt were shocked at the refusal after being solid patrons for almost a decade.
“It came as a shock to me because I've had a nine year relationship with Barronelle and have never thought there was a reason that she wouldn't …,” Ingersoll said.
Stuzman tried to save face by saying, “We hire gay people. I have friends that are gay, that wasn't the issue. The issue is that I just didn't want to participate in the marriage.”
There are rants all over Facebook at the moment and I like so many other Locals have vowed to never give our business to this narrow-minded woman.
How dare she judge another loving couple because of their sexual preference... The ignorance and stupidity of some people just amazes me. I hope that this woman's business suffers for her inhumane decision.
