Christian-owned Bridal Shop Closes After Death Threats

A family-owned bridal shop in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania closed its doors after enduring more than three years of hate mail and death threats.

The W.W. Bridal Boutique shut down on March 31 after a firestorm of controversy erupted over their policy to refuse to serve same-sex weddings.

“It’s been very hard on my family especially with the threats against the children,” co-owner Lisa Boucher said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “The hate has been overwhelming.”

“They actually attacked our children – saying they were going to burn our store down. They wanted us to be raped. They wanted our children to be raped. They wanted us to have bullets in our head,” she said.

The trouble started in 2014 when a same-sex couple inquired about wedding attire..

Again, more evidence that homosexuality is a mental disorder and mentally unstable people often act out violently. Violence should be punishable by law every time.

Satans followers, love sin and flip the bird at God. How sad and miseable their lives must be so full of evil vile hatred for themselves and others. They should be the ones raped and full of bullets. But i love them anyway and pray for their souls.

This is a prosecutable crime and should be treated as such.

This is so ridiculous. Again.

This store sells clothing to the public, so it needs to sell clothes to the public, doing otherwise is illegal. Last time I checked Marriage between two consenting adults is perfectly legal everywhere this wonderful country.

It is not a private club where you have to be a member to do business... if these business owners want to discriminate against Americans because of some religious bigotry (yes, that is the correct word, as not ALL Christians hold the same view... I wish you guys could get this supposedly infallible nonsense straight.. I mean really, you've had enough time), then these religious bigots should have formed a private club and not a public business and problem solved.

But no, as per usual, they want to shove their religion down everyone else's throats. Just as this owner couldn't use "religion" or "conscience" as an excuse to exercise bigotry against a race they didn't like... (remember, interracial marriages were once not legal.. and religious folks used this same tired excuse to be bigots, unsuccessful as is should be.)
