Lesbian "Brides" Bully Bridal Shop

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
Another small business is under attack because they believe in God's model for marriage.

A woman came into the W.W. Bridal Boutique in Bloomsburg, Pa., and said she was shopping for "wedding dresses."

She explained she was "marrying" her lesbian lover.

The folks at W.W. Bridal Boutique told her " unfortunately" they were not currently servicing same-sex weddings---"it's just not something we do," they said.

Rather than displaying the tolerance homosexuals claim to practice and demand of others, the lesbians started a campaign against the owner and the business.


A quick check shows there are a number of bridal shops in town. But that's not the point.

Clearly the reaction was not about accommodation, it is about forcing biblical people of faith to not only accept so-called same-ex "marriage," but to accommodate it.

Victoria Miller, the owner said, "Providing those two girls dresses for a sanctified marriage would break God's law."

She said she believes God "holds us responsible for our acts."

We've heard this before---retaliation toward photographers, cake makers, florists and wedding dress shops, but this has an element that is a bit different than the other cases.

Homosexuals in the area and some in city government are so committed to taking this business owner down because of her religious beliefs that the city council is planning a special meeting to create a law or city ordinance that can be used to sue Victoria Miller---simply because she believes in biblical marriage.

Miller has hired a lawyer to defend her. Her lawyer says his client has a "liberty interest" in refusing to take part in a process that would violate "firmly and honestly held religious beliefs."

Another person has now come forward to accuse Miller.

G. Andrea Shay is saying W.W. Bridal also refused to provide service to her and her cross dressing husband.

She says the shop was "strange and rude."

The shop is "strange?"

Sadly, it's not only the secular and atheists who are attacking Victoria Miller.

Facebook and other social media has exploded with attacks on Miller--- some attacks are from so-called "Christians."

"You, in fact, are an abomination to the state of Pennsylvania," one wrote.

Another said, "Jesus made everyone feel welcome, shame---you are not follower of Christ."

Without regard to their own behavior and effort to scandalize and destroy the business of Victoria Miller, one wrote, "Your beliefs don't make you a better person, your behavior does."

One "Christian" writes, "As a fellow Christian I'm ashamed of people like you. We are taught to love our neighbor regardless."

Is that real love?

Franklin Graham recently told a group of Christian leaders that biblical Christians should love homosexuals---and all sinners---enough to warn them. He told the leaders, "Now if you don't like that, don't get mad at me." He said, "I didn't write the rule book. Almighty God wrote it, and its a sin against Him."

How long will biblical Christians remain silent? How far down this road to destruction and bondage must we travel before we stand and speak and act?

President John Adams once said, "Let the pulpit resound with the doctrine and sentiments of religious liberty. Let us hear of the dignity of man's nature...let it be known that...liberties are not the grants of princes and parliaments."

Be Vigilant. Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.

  1. As a former business owner I think businesses have the right to choose who they want as customers. If WW Bridal does not want to do business with anyone, that's entirely up to them...there are always 'more fish in the sea'!

    I applaud them for standing up for what they believe and not condoning that type of behavior. Imagine if people wanted to marry their sister, brother, pet, etc.

    It's no wonder that Muslims call us the 'great satan' with all the immorality in our country today. Condoning it still doesn't legitimize it.

    Shame on those who are posting anything negative on FB! They, too, as this 'couple' are, being intolerant. They're not getting their way, so they bash people who have differing beliefs from theirs! How intolerant is that???

    There are plenty of bridal shops around that all they had to do was walk out and go to another. They just want the publicity so as to perpetuate their homosexual relationship and cause. It's much like what we're seeing in the news with the rioting...it could have been avoided if each person took responsibility and gone on their way.
    Tolerance: 1. the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with.

    I just wish everyone would get the chip of their shoulders, not be so defensive, or such bleeding hearts and thin-skinned! Get over it and move on for Pete's sake!!! Life is too short and we don't need to be walking on eggs every time we want to say or do something. Sheesh!

  2. As a current business owner, the climate today means that I must lie or choose carefully how to run my business. So far, I have decided that to stay on this side of the law I can work with independent contractors and have terminated all employees to avoid issues down the road. I have also changed services offered for the same reason.

    Perhaps the solution being sought today is for all small business to be owned only by humanists or progressive liberals. The word "freedom" and "tolerance" does not seem to be part of the vocabulary of those who are progressives. That seems rather odd as how can one be tolerant and freedom-loving if one does not extend that to all.

    Everyone is doing a lot of screeching on how we can all live together in one nation. And that screeching is being litigious and ugly. I had a new female friend actually leave my table in a restaurant when she learned I was conservative/middle of the road'ish. I had not even said more than one sentence. She quickly retorted that while she surmised that I could hold a respectful conversation, she as unable to be respectful.

    Freedom loving.. tolerant. open-minded.. love for all. ah yes.

    The question now, though, is truly what do we do about this? I'm tired of just talking about it and emotional highs and lows over the discord. What do we do??

  3. Well, they 're at it again, as if they are some kind of special race....like they came from some planet called Alien or something. They just don't have the papers to prove it, or something.

  4. The right to refuse service to anyone should be reserved by shops like this that cater to weddings.

  5. If these homosexuals were not human beings we could excuse their behavior and not have to call it sin. But we still would not have to provide wedding dresses.

  6. Going along with and taking an active part in anything contrary to Christ isn't love at all. It's a violation of the first and great commandment.

  7. What I am wondering is what people are going to do if ever a judge orders them to serve these people as they wish to be served. Are they going to say, "Your Honor, we don't do that kind of work, not even for a judge."?

    If so, they will need support from the Church, their prayers, their moral support, help of all kinds, financial also.

    1. Absolutely, we can best support these shops through prayer and financial support, especially if they are facing a lawsuit.

      When one part of the body of Christ hurts, we should all hurt and seek to heal the wounded part.

  8. When those who are in darkness truly tolerate those who walk in the light, the effect upon them is very much according to the gospel of Christ, where we are to partake of suffering in order to become more like him.

    All of us who have come to Christ, began right where we were at.

  9. Perhaps the best course of action would be provide the service , but provide the service with a Christian message . I understand not doing if it bothered your conscience . In that I respect and understand the refusal , but I really believe the dresses could have been made available with a Christian message of Love and still keeping the principles respected of the covenant God made for Man and Women in Marriage
