Keep it to yourself

garden.jpgI don’t know if you’ve seen this, but a landscaping company in Texas recently refused to take on gay clients with the email message, “I need to tell you that we cannot meet with you because we choose not to work for homosexuals.”

Mrs. Farber, half of the Garden Guy, Inc. team, defended their actions by saying that, “My husband made a personal choice, according to something he felt in his heart.”

I’m sure racists and skinheads also feel that hating minorities and Jews is a personal choice, and I’m absolutely certain they feel it in their hearts.

Americans are free to make personal choices about what they think, what they do in their homes, and who they socialize with, but the public realm is governed by laws prohibiting discrimination, whether it’s based on personal choice, close mindedness or low IQ. Those laws do not yet extend to gays in most places. I hope incidents like this one will force that to change.

In the meantime, if you need a landscaper, I know a fantastic one in New York. He’s more than happy to work with anyone who will pay his rate and he has no problem with homosexuals, probably because he’s gay.
