Protestors engaged in a heated conversation with supporters of a Michigan repairman who refuses to serve gay people.
Around 50 protestors gathered Saturday in front of Dieseltec, an autoshop in Grandville, Mich. that sparked headlines after its owner, Brian Klawiter, made a statement on Facebook declaring that he would not serve gay customers due to his religious beliefs, reports M Live.
"I am a Christian," Dieseltec owner Brian Klawiter posted Tuesday. "My company will be run in a way that reflects that. Dishonesty, thievery, immoral behavior, etc. will not be welcomed at MY place of business. (I would not hesitate to refuse service to an openly gay person or persons. Homosexuality is wrong, period. If you want to argue this fact with me then I will put your vehicle together with all bolts and no nuts and you can see how that works.)"
After the post, dozens gathered in front of Klawiter's establishment to protest his views, carrying signs with statements like "Same love, same money, same service" and "Who are you to judge God's children?"
The gathering sparked a debate between the protestors and Klawiter's supporters, who were also present.
"I am a Christian. And what happened to, 'Christians love all?' God loves everyone," declared one young woman holding a sign imprinted with a heart and an equal sign. "Even if the person is gay, he loves all of his children."
"Which one of us is without sin?" questioned another woman, whose sign read "Jesus had 2 dads."
"No one," a defendent of Klawiter said.
"Exactly," she said.
Since Klawiter made his statement, it's been revealed that he apparently has no business license, because he will not allow inspectors on his property. In addition, an unverified tweet said Klawiter was previously arrested for battery.
