Via Truth Revolt:
Oklahoma State Senator Joseph Silk has stirred up a hornet’s nest inside the LGBT community after introducing a bill (SB440) in his home state that would ensure business owners to retain the right to serve whomever they please. That is not sitting well for some in the homosexual community, who are now sending death threats to the state senator and his family.
In an interview with TruthRevolt, Silk said that since he was quoted in The New York Times Thursday saying homosexuals “don’t have a right to be served in every single store,” he has received hundreds of angry e-mails and phone calls from LGBT activists who believe he is sanctioning discrimination. “A couple of them have been death threats against me and my children,” Silk said.
But what the NYT failed to do was include the entirety of Silk’s statement — the part where he said he also doesn’t have a right to be served in every store. Silk clarified what he told the paper in a statement at his campaign website:
Yes I did say that homosexuals do not have the right to be served in every store, just as I do not believe that I, my family, or anyone else have the right to be served in every private business.
