So, as a Christian, she's asking certain people to stay away from her store. "No yarn for you!"

Just like Jesus when he divided the fishes and the loaves to feed people. He said, "And if you don't agree with my beliefs and values...I'm asking you to not come. No fish for you!"




Oh....wait....

If she wants to take this stand and risk her business, that's up to her.

Gee, a "Christian" woman from Tennessee making statements for self promotion and free publicity is to be expected.

Both sides in the matter have the opportunity to vote with their dollar. I wonder if someone will open a competing yarn shop.

It's her right. She is not alone in how she feels about the whole march either. I've seen it here even on CD.

Well, I've been meaning to invest in a sheep farm, anyway. I will make my own yarn. And then I'll learn how to knit. I'll knit like the wind! And then I'll get bored and just hang out with the sheep because sheep are nice. What a lovely break it will be from the tumultuous world of politics. Warm, snuggly sheeps.

Yea she should have known ahead of time that enough of the protestors were vile scumbags.
