Gay Coffeeshop Owner Doubles Down on Vulgar Pro-Life Discrimination

Gay Coffeeshop Owner Doubles Down on Vulgar Pro-Life Discrimination

Last week, members of a pro-life Christian group visited Bedlam Coffee Shop in Seattle, WA. They weren't protesting. They weren't trying to spread gospel or preach. They were simply there to relax.

Suddenly, co-owner Ben Borgman appeared and the following exchange took place (warning, graphic language):

The video went viral, garnering over 300,000 views after it was posted to Abolish Human Abortion's facebook page. Bedlam Coffee's Yelp rating plummeted below three stars (since retroactively 'fixed' by Yelp's leftist moderators).

The Conservative Review gave us a breakdown of Borgman's rant:

The Christians attempted to reason with the owner, but he wouldn’t have it.

“So you’re not willing to tolerate our presence?” one of the Christians, Jonathan Sutherland, asked.

“Will you tolerate my presence?” the owner responded. Sutherland attempted to explain that they would, noting, “We’re actually in your coffee shop.”

“Really?” the owner demanded. “If I go get my boyfriend and f*ck him in the a** right here you’re going to tolerate that?”

The exchange did not improve. The owner demanded that the group vacate his shop immediately and said, “Tell all your f*cking friends, don’t f*cking come here.” After the Christians agreed to leave, Davis attempted to share the gospel message with the owner. “Just know that Christ can save you from that lifestyle,” she said.

“Yeah, I like a**,” the owner responded. “I’m not going to be saved by anything. I’d f*ck Christ in the a**. OK? He’s hot,” he said, blaspheming.

Now, where are the progressives leaping to the defense of the Christians? Isn’t this just like recent controversies involving Christian business owners who have cited religious objections to serving homosexual weddings? Shouldn’t the gay coffee shop owner be castigated in the media for discriminating against Christians and fined, like Christian bakery owners, for refusing service?

One week later, Borgman is back at it again, this time with renewed furor. 

From KIRO Radio:

“This wasn’t about Christianity. I’m not anti-Christian,” Ben Borgman told KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson. “I’m anti-people who print garbage and spread it around the city. If you want to hand out stuff, you put it in an adult’s hand. You don’t leave it wrapped up like a toy for a child to find. That’s what it’s all about.”

Borgman argues there’s a lot more to the story than what is on the viral video that shows him telling the group to leave.

The incident has been framed as a case of religious discrimination. The Washington State Human Rights Commission is sending Borgman a letter explaining state anti-discrimination law. Borgman says that some people have even said to him “Good job for kicking out Christians.” But he’s quick to put an end to that rhetoric, he says.

“This whole ‘thrown out for being Christian’ thing, that is so wrong,” he said. “I have Christian friends who choose to preach education and support as opposition to abortion. They do not choose to confront people, and picket funerals, and bomb clinics. There are a lot better ways to get this message to women without scaring them or horrifying them.”

According to Borgman, it's totally fine to be Christian... so long as you don't actually follow Christian tenets. The faith is apparently one of mere convenience, akin to saying you're vegetarian, except for all the steaks you enjoy.

The hypocrisy of the left, ladies and gentlemen.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
