Michigan Auto Shop Owner Who Would Deny Gays Service Has No Business License

It turns out Brian Klawiter, the auto shop owner who posted on Facebook that he would refuse to serve openly gay customers, doesn’t even have a city business license, according to city authorities.

Brian Klawiter earlier this year told the City Council that requiring a license violates his constitutional rights because it authorizes city inspectors to enter his property without a warrant.

“This is a blatant and intentioned violation of the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution,” Klawiter told the council on Jan. 26. “I dispute your lawful ability to do what you claim. I will not sign the application. I cannot and will not give up my civil rights, especially when requested by a government entity for which the Constitution was designed to limit the power of.”

Klawiter also says he has received death threats because of his anti-gay Facebook post, but police have not been asked to investigate, nor has Klawiter filed any charges.
