UPDATED — With the speed of social media, businessman Leon Moeder is getting his wish.
On Saturday, Moeder expressed his frustration with a Kansas House bill, which the Senate then rejected, to allow businesses to refuse service to same-sex couples. On Facebook, he wrote: “I want a window sign that says, ‘WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO PROVIDE SERVICE TO EVERYONE.’”
“Michael Carmody within seconds said . . . he would prepare something,” Moeder says of his tenant, who is co-owner of the Donut Whole.
“They’re at the printers right now,” Moeder says.
Never miss a local story.
By this afternoon, he’ll have 500 at his real estate office at 122 S. Hydraulic.
“First off, it’s the right thing to do,” Moeder says. “I just have a problem with people being mean to other people.”
There’s a rally to end inequality in Topeka on Tuesday, and Moeder hopes someone can take his signs there.
“You know, Kansas was founded on progressive ideas,” he says.
