Do you think this is a good business decision or not? By RALPH BLUMENTHAL Published: November 11, 2006 HOUSTON, Nov. 10 Last month, a local landscaping firm prompted a furor here by telling a gay couple in an e-mail message, We choose not to work for homosexuals. The message quickly made its way around the Internet, and the company, Garden Guy Inc., was bombarded with threats and hate mail. But since then, the companys owners say they have gained far more business than they have lost. In an interview Friday, Sabrina Farber, 34, co-owner of the company with her husband, Todd, 37, said the company had picked up $40,000 in new business in the past two weeks, while losing only two clients worth about $500 each a year. Im not saying that to gloat, said Mrs. Farber, who described the frenzy as ugly and emotionally draining. But she said they would not do it differently and deserved credit for not masking their refusal with excuses. Why cant people handle it when you say the truth? she said. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/11/u...=th&oref=slogin __________________ Those who live in accordance with these divine laws without complaining, firmly established in faith, are released from karma.
