Here we go again.

Brian Klawiter, the owner of Dieseltec auto repair shop in Grandville, MI declared on the business’Facebook page Tuesday that they will not serve gay people because “homosexuality is wrong, period.”

From the post:

Enough is enough. Our rights as conservative Americans are being squashed more and more everyday. Apparently if you are white (or close to it), you have a job, go to church, and own a gun… That translates into racists, privileged, bigot, conspiracy theorist. Too many of us say nothing. Well, freedom of speech isn’t just for Liberals, THEY are the ones that need to learn to “co-exist”, THEY are the ones who need to WORK to be “equal”

So if you’re looking for a lube job, gays, look elsewhere, because Mr. Klawiter is not going to service you. Even if you have one of these sexy problems listed on his website.

Is your Duramax smoking? Does your Powerstroke not start when it’s hot? How about your Cummins, is it putting down the power it could be?

In fact, if you are gay and bring your car in for repairs, he jokes that he will put your vehicle together with all bolts and no nuts and you can see how that works.”

It might sound like a threat, but he later clarified his comments.

The bolt and nut thing was a reference to physiology, bolt penis and nut v@gina. I DID NOT threaten to purposely put a vehicle together wrong to harm someone.

While gays are not welcome, he says that guns are encouraged. He is offering a special deal to anyone who brings a firearm into his shop.

And as with the Memories Pizza debacle, the company’s Yelp page has already been inundated with negative reviews and humorous comments.

But don’t think about raising hundreds of thousands of dollars on a GoFundMe page for the poor guy, because he won’t take it.

“I also am not asking for anyone to do the gofundme postings,” he wrote. “We are a successful business and are blessed to be able to feed our families. If there is any money raised it will be redistributed to people with greater needs than ours.”

Here are some highlights from Yelp so far.

Ringtone of the Day: Sen. Pat Roberts’ Phone Plays ‘Let It Go’ During Committee Hearing

Queen Elsa made an brief cameo at a boring Senate Finance Committee hearing on Thursday.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack was trying to speak, when “Let It Go” started blaring from across the room.

The culprit turned out to be Republican Sen. Pat Roberts from Kansas, who is apparently a closet “Frozen” fan.

“Aw, come on,” he said, turning it off while everyone in the room laughed. “Just let it go mister.”

A spokesperson later clarified to The Washington Post that the ringtone is actually for his kids. he also

“He balances it with Johnny Cash’s ‘I Walk the Line,'” she said. “He changes depending on the day.”

Riiiiight. Whatever you say Roberts.

Status Update of the Day: Judge Permits Woman to Divorce Husband Via Facebook

You still can’t actually dislike someone’s post on Facebook, but now you can use the social network to end your marriage.

A New York Supreme Court justice has ruled that a woman named Ellanora Baidoo can legally serve her husband a divorce summons through Facebook messenger.

She legally married Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku back in 2009, but because he wouldn’t go through with a traditional Ghanaian wedding ceremony, she now wants out of the relationship. They separated, and the only way she has been able to contact him is on the phone or through Facebook, so there has been no way to get him the required paperwork.

Until now. Her lawyer will be messaging him once a week for three weeks, or until he finally responds.

A 2013 study suggested that excessive Facebook usage is likely to cause relationship problems in the first place, which could lead to a breakup or divorce.

So it’s all now just an endless cycle of drama and heartbreak online.

And until your soon-to-be ex responds, it’s probably best to change your status to “It’s Complicated.”

Outrage of the Day: Utah City Orders Takedown of Kid’s Cardboard Fort

Welcome to Utah, where creativity is a crime.

Jeremy Trentelman recently built his 3-year-old son an epic fort made out of cardboard boxes. The castle-like structure was erected on his front lawn, and apparently the city thought it was just a piece of garbage.

A few days later, an Ogden City official posted a notice on his door saying that the fort needed to be removed within 15 days or else he would be forced to pay a $125 fine. According to the city, it violated Code 12-4-2, which prohibits waste material or junk on your lawn.

Trentelman posted a photo of the notice to Facebook along with a message expressing his outrage.

“Are you freakin’ kidding me?” he wrote. “‘Waste materials or junk’ it says… what about totally awesome fun zone. What a joke!”

His story has since spread online, and he’s been inviting strangers to come over to his house and check it out while it’s still there.

“Hey everyone, I’m home for the rest of the day,” he wrote. “Anyone wanna come play in the box fort?”

After the news broke, someone also created a Facebook page so people should show their support and build forts of their own in protest.

Calling on all the citizens of Ogden to stand in solidarity with Jeremy Trentelman by building cardboard forts in all the front yards throughout the entire city of Ogden.

The moral of the story: Stick to your iPad’s and video games, kids, and don’t even think about recycling. That stuff belongs in the trash.

They’ve ruthlessly murdered scores of innocent people, destroyed priceless artifacts, and bulldozed ancient cities.

Now ISIS recruits are passing through Luke Skywalker’s home planet on their way to Libya, and Star Wars fans are being warned to stay away as the danger escalates in the region.

Obi-Wan Kenobi said it best: “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.”

The planet Tatooine from “Star Wars” was inspired by the real city of Tataouine in Tunisia and parts of the country were used as a backdrop for various scenes in the films.

Fans have been flocking to Tunisia for years to visit the locations, but now they’re being warned against it as the Islamic terrorist group ISIS expands in the region.

Over the past month, authorities have found numerous weapons caches – including rocket launchers – and arrested several men on their way to cross the border and join ISIS in Libya, according to CNN. ISIS also recently claimed responsibility for the terror attack on the National Bardo Museum in Tunis which killed 23 people.

The British government has issued a travel warning for the area citing “a high threat from terrorism, including kidnapping.”

Walmart not only has falling prices, it’s also got strange men falling out of the ceiling.

A shoplifter was apprehended by security at a store in Mobile, Alabama last Wednesday after trying to walk away with a debit card, some shoes, a hat, a watch and some underwear.

They locked him up in the security office, but he mysteriously disappeared.

“He had climbed on a desk, jumped into the ceiling, then tried to escape,” said a witness named Brannan Lynn, who recorded the whole thing on his phone.

The suspect made his way to the entryway of the store where he then kicked he way through, dangling for a few minutes before hopping down to the ground.

He eventually ran into the parking lot and drove away in his car.

You can check out some more raw footage of the daring escape on LiveLeak.

Special Delivery of the Day: Man Hands Pope Pizza in Naples

Doing God’s work all day can make a man hungry.

In a recent TV interview in Mexico, Pope Francis said that there was one thing he really didn’t like about his job.

“The only thing I would like is to go out one day, without being recognized, and go to a pizzeria for a pizza,” he said.

This past weekend, his wish was – sort of – granted.

Francis motorcade was making its way through Naples on Sunday, when a man named Enzo Cacialli ran up to him and handed him a pie with the words “Il Papa” written out in dough.

Probably not the best idea in the world to sprint towards the popemobile like a maniac, but no one seemed to mind.

Cacialli is co-owner of Pizzeria Don Ernesto, which also gave a pizza to Bill Clinton in 1994.

Here’s a closr look at the Pope’s pie from the Pizzeria “Don Ernesto” Facebook page which was topped with yellow cherry tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala:
