Idaho Bar Won’t Sell Brands Owners Deem Pro-Gay
The owners of a popular bar and grill in Waha, Id., say they will no longer sell the products of companies that support LGBT rights, such as Pepsi and MillerCoors, Idaho news station NWCN reported.
Mike and Mari Fuller, who own Waha Bar and Grill, said they have banned the products of companies that support the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).
"The National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce is an entity that collects money from major corporations to further promote policies for the gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders," Mike Fuller said. "And as Christians, we don’t support that."
The couple have owned the restaurant for about four years and said they made their decision about what products to carry just one year after they opened.
"Whether it’s for political correctness or pressure from gay activists groups or perceived profit over moral principle, major corporations are increasing their support for issues like gay marriage," Mike Fuller said. The fullers are open about their feelings towards same-sex marriage and they said they don’t care if they lose customers over their views.
"They choose to leave and go somewhere else," Mari Fuller said. "Which for us that’s fine. That’s how we are. We make our decisions on what we like, what we want to purchase and buy and everybody else has that same right."
Some customers support the couple, however. Mike Daniels argues that they have the right to sell the products they want.
