A US-based women’s clothing brand has been banned from Etsy after posting a Bible verse on their store profile.
After 12-years of selling on the e-commerce platform, Etsy accused Garlands of Grace of violating their Anti-Discrimination policy.
The brand, which provides uniquely designed and handcrafted headwraps, head coverings, and accessories, was informed by Etsy that their store will not be reinstated unless they immediately remove the offending content.
Garlands of Grace’s profile said that the company stands for traditional, biblical marriage, and included a quote from 1 Corinthians 6:9, which reads:
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not be deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind… shall inherit the kingdom of God.
The company told Caldron Pool, “Although saddened to be removed from Etsy due to our beliefs, we are thankful as we know the Word of God shared on Etsy will continue to do its work in the hearts of those who read it.
“In Isaiah 55:11 God promises that His Word will not return void! We hope and pray this encourages Christians across the globe to boldly proclaim the good news of salvation and take a stand for righteousness!”
In a statement posted on their Facebook page, Garlands of Grace said they have no intention of removing God’s Word in order to be reinstated.
Garlands of Grace will be selling their products through their website garlandsofgrace.com
Take note of what’s going on here. Anyone can advocate LGBTQ pride, on just about every platform available. In fact, most corporations have fully embraced LGBTQ ideology, to the point of altering their existing business branding to reflect that position with rainbow colors.
Ironically, this is all done in the name of tolerance and acceptance. And yet the moment anybody else comes along with a differing ideology, one that our grandparents would have likely accepted, the notion of tolerance and acceptance is thrown out the window.
There is only one acceptable ideology for these folks, and unless you submit and think as they do, they’ll do everything in their power to make sure there’s no place left in society for you.
