In Tennessee: Anti-Gay Merchandise sells at a Hardware Store

From WATE News 6
At Jeff Amyx’s hardware store in Grainger County there’s no smoking and no service without shoes and a shirt, but what’s causing all the commotion is his “no gays allowed” rule.

Amyx said he has received bundles of hate mail after he posted a controversial “No Gays Allowed” sign outside his store in Washburn. However, he says the sign has only brought more people in to the store. Now, he’s printing anti-gay messages on hats and bumper stickers.
