Quotes

...Lawrence says he was told by a sales representative from Reagan that "they don't want to offend clients." He also says their signs "are on leased property and they don't want to offend any of their landlords."
"This organization literally wants to shut down any opposing viewpoint, particularly one that's Christian in nature. That's inappropriate and I think it's uncalled for" said Staver, although he did not elaborate on his evidence that Greaves' group has vowed to "shut down" anything
"It's bush league," Arciero told the News Service. "It's a smear campaign. To suggest the Massachusetts Legislature somehow supports illegal immigrants over veterans is absurd. We lead the nation in providing benefits to veterans and their families and it's unfortunate that Mass.Advertisement Fiscal has chosen to spread information that's misleading and distorted and intended to smear the reputations of me and my colleagues."
Another said: "Urban Outfitters is the Westboro Baptist Church of overpriced apparel.” In reference to the extremist Baptist Church in the US."
