Crazy Tennessee yarn lady strikes super-Jesusy blow against First Amendment:
Franklin Yarn Store Throws a Knit FitAnd then all the heretics of Franklin saddled up their horses and rode to Bliss Yarns, or Haus of Yarn, or to the municipal library to use the public internet machine to order all the yarn they want.
Shop's owner bans women's march supporters ... days after Nashville's women's march
Yesterday the owner of The Joy of Knitting, a boutique yarn shop in Franklin, posted a message on Facebook:
With the recent women's march on Washington, I ask that you if you want yarn for any project for the women's movement that you please shop for yarn elsewhere. The vulgarity, vile and evilness of this movement is absolutely despicable. That kind of behavior is unacceptable and is not welcomed at The Joy of Knitting. I will never need that kind of business to remain open. Two wrongs will never ever make it right.The author of the post, Elizabeth, cited her Christian beliefs as the main reason for her stance, saying, "The women's movement is counterproductive to unity of family, friends, community, and nation."...
Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that I would be the member of our household to write a yarn post (especially on National Spouse Day) considering that I know nothing of the dark art of string-and-stick other than my wife turns balls of yarn into miracles every day.
My wife also has a degree in theology from a Famous Ivy League University, so I am doubly out of my depth.
Fortunately I am married to a lovely lady who knits me a life-line whenever I get too lost in my own head :-)
