WASHBURN, Tenn. (WATE) – At Jeff Amyx’s hardware store in Grainger County, Tennessee there’s no smoking and no service without shoes and a shirt, but what’s causing all the commotion is his “no gays allowed” rule.

Amyx said he has received bundles of hate mail after he posted a controversial “No Gays Allowed” sign outside his store in Washburn. However, he says the sign has only brought more people in to the store. Now, he’s printing anti-gay messages on hats and bumper stickers.

We need love, not hate. That man is the product of his upbringing and the values that were instilled in him. I wish that I could sit down with him and talk in depth about so many things, in a respectful, open manner.

Sometimes it's personal experience, nothing to do with how one is raised. Although, raising can have a direct result.......when it's men talking about men, I have to leave it here.

Hey, at least I know where to avoid... If they don't like gay people I'm sure the rest of their views are backwards too. I'm sure these are the same people that wave their confederate flags because "heritage". I mean, it's not like I would have gone to Bigotville, Tennesseesseeeeeeeee anyway, but it's good to know things like this still exist in America.

I think the previous comment was a joke!! If God is real he's probably very disappointed with our eyesore of a country and a bunch of gun tooting Confederate flag waving morons (and Donald Trump...)

Really?

Right in the Pledge of Allegiance are the words "...with liberty and justice for all."

Maybe you haven't heard it for so long, you forget the words...
