Portland shop owner threatened by gays: she must “explain” her views on traditional marriage

“They want her to explain.”

Chauncy Childs’ store on Milwaukie Avenue in Westmoreland is everything the left claims to love. It’s a Farmer’s Market-like store that will feature no GMOs, no additives, raw milk, fresh produce–the whole granola bit–but, because of her old Facebook posts, the Perpetually Aggrieved Portland Professional Protesters believe she’s anti gay and have attacked.  

The Portland shop keeper hasn’t even opened the grocery store yet and she’s getting blow-back from the far left gay activists for her traditional marriage comments on social media. The word has gone out–all the way to KGW TV– that the owner of The Moreland Farmer’s Pantry has put “anti gay” (read: pro traditional marriage) items on her Facebook page. And, as the reporter explains in the piece below, “they want her to explain.” “

According to KGW, she posted her belief that a private shop owner has the right to say no to demands farmer market gay2customers with which she disagrees–such as baking a cake for a gay wedding. And that apparently was enough to tick off a man by the name of Sean O’Riordan.

O’Riordan put together a YouTube video of Child’s Facebook posts she had posted under another name to forge a whispering campaign against the shop keeper. He circulated it throughout the community–and to KGW TV. 

In the news story, O’Riordan wept saying his brother died of AIDS and was persecuted because he was gay. Apparently to him posting your opinion is now tantamount to persecution and inflicting AIDS. 

You’ll see in the piece below that Child’s has already paid her indulgences to the gay community by giving to a gay suicide prevention charity. She says she hopes to “make some peace.”

Good luck with the cray gays, Chauncy. 

 

 

Political reporter Chris Cillizza gets schooled—on parenting

leashChris Cillizza is a political reporter for the Washington Post and writes the popular column, “The Fix.” Today he veered off talking about live chats with politicos, retweeting slams on George W. Bush’s artistic abilities and Daily Show monologue favorites to venture into new territory: parenting.

He blurted out this on Twitter this morning.

 

I understand what he’s feeling. Putting a kid on a leash looks odd and borderline abusive. I’m sure that’s the point Cillizza was trying to make. Some people went with Cillizza’s premise and agreed readily, like this guy

And then people with knowledge of autistic children began to weigh in and school the political reporter:


As I always say Twitter is a free fire zone. You fire and people fire back. BOOM.
