- "A boycott is never easy, " Wiener saind. "[But anti-LGBT laws] will spread to more states unless we take a very, very strong position that there will be economic pain if you do this." The pinch would be felt in Mississippi where laws have changed so businesses can refuse service to those in the LGBT community if merchants cite religious freedoms. Last summer, two bakers in both Oregon and Colorado refused to bake cakes for same sex weddings, but the courts ruled against them. The Oregon couple ended paying a nearly $137,000 fine. At Mudpuppy's Tub and Scrubs in the Castro District, Daniel Bergerac runs a dog washing and grooming service. He is gay and bristles at the notion that members of the LGBT community have been denied service. "The most important thing is that people have money!" he said through laughter. "We had the president of the Women's Republican party for Contra Costa County as a good customer, and politically we disagreed on everything but I certainly enjoyed taking her Visa card every week when she came in the shop." Keegan Raeside, who came into Mudpuppy's today said, "I believe in the rights of gay marriage and if we can send a message to those states who disagree with that, I think that's a good thing." KTVU asked Bergerac if he would feel uncomfortable in states like North Carolina or Mississippi. "You know, in my heart, " he replied, "I really believe the people that are there don't care about this, that this is politicians doing what they can to stay in office and to cook up votes. People are about their families, jobs and health care, not which bathroom people are using. I think this is the last gasp of a dying breed." By KTVU reporter Tara Moriarty.
