Isn't this what Jeebus told his followers to do? Workers at The Pavillion, a government-funded recreational facility in Hazard, Kentucky, threw two gay men with developmental and intellectual disabilities out of the public pool citing the Bible as the reason.
"We own this place and can tell you to leave if we want to," the couple was told, according to the Kentucky Equality Foundation.
"The Pavilion staff immediately entered the pool area and asked my clients and their staff to leave the Pavilion," Mending Hearts Executive Director Shirlyn Perkins recalled. "My staff asked The Pavilion staff why they were being asked to leave, and they were informed that 'gay people' weren't allowed to swim there."
"My staff told this man that what he was trying to do was discrimination. The man stated that what he was doing was in the Bible and he could do it. My staff continued to argue with this man, but was ultimately forced to leave. My clients, whom already feel ridiculed and different, left the city owned facility crying and embarrassed for trying to participate in 'normal' activities that everyday 'normal' people do," she added.
Feel the love of Jeebus, folks. Feel the love. Just don't try to get baptized or do the backstroke. (imgsrc)
