New Bern lesbian couple handed letter of condemnation by restaurant owner

A lesbian couple living in New Bern, N.C., had just finished their meal at the Stingray Cafe in downtown New Bern when they say the restaurant’s owner handed them a letter condemning them.

TV station WCTI 12 reported the story yesterday, which restaurant owner Ed McGovern confirmed he provided the hand-written letter to married couple Ariel and Shawnee McPhail.

The letter:

God said in the last days that man and wom[a]n would be lover of self, more [than] the lover of God.

That man and woman would have unnatural [affection] for one another. Then, the coming of the Son of Man, who is Jesus. So please, look at your life. See how it hurt[s] everyone around you. And ask the Lord to open your eye[s] before it [is] to[o] late.

The Love of Christ

P.S. my daughter also was gay. It destroy[ed] her life and my grandson.
