Love wins. And so does Whole Foods.
At first, Austin’s Pastor Jordan Brown was like this:

But now he’s like this. KVUE:
The man who said an employee at Whole Foods, Inc. wrote a homophobic slur on a cake has withdrawn his lawsuit and now says the company “did nothing wrong…”
[Jordan] Brown said in a statement Monday morning that he was “wrong to pursue this matter and use the media to perpetuate this story.”
“I want to apologize to Whole Foods and its team members for questioning the company’s commitment to its values, and especially the baker associate who I understand was put in a terrible position because of my actions,” Brown said in his statement Monday.
Which actions were those? If this guy is really a pastor, he should know that forgiveness requires contrition. And you can’t show contrition before the Lord without admitting what you’ve done. He needs to specifically admit he perpetrated a hoax.
Whole Foods threatened to sue Brown after releasing this video footage, which they say is proof he tampered with the box:
Now they’re dropping the countersuit. I guess they figure they’ve already won in the court of public opinion, and going after the guy legally would only look vindictive.
Take heed, SJWs. You guys got your gay marriage. If that’s not good enough for you, if you’re still determined to make yourselves victims somehow, please try a little harder than Pastor Brown.
And don’t use Whole Foods to do it, because they do not play.
