In December of last year, a restaurant owner in New Bern, North Carolina wrote a letter condemning the lifestyle of two lesbian women and proceeded to give it to them as they were leaving his establishment. The handwritten letter included claims of God’s opposition to homosexuality and a plea for the women to see how their sexual orientation “hurt everyone” and to “ask the Lord to open your eyes before it’s too late.” Owner Ed McGovern claims God told him to write the letter, and he gave it to the women “out of love.” Not only did McGovern hand the letter to the women, but he waited until after they had paid their bill. He also told reporters this was not the first time he had done this.
