Irish cafe refuses to open indoor dining room to protest new ‘discriminatory’ law
A CAFÃ in Dublin refuses to open its indoor dining room because it does not want to participate in “discrimination”.
The owner of the White Moose CafÃ© took to Facebook to announce his position, after indoor hospitality returned on Monday.
Paul Stenson said his company has always been “pro-choice” and will not “support discrimination”, in a Facebook post on Sunday.
“The cafe’s indoor seating area won’t reopen tomorrow … because the white moose isn’t ready to endure discrimination.
“We’ve always been pro-choice here and that’s not going to change now, I’m afraid.”
He stressed that businesses across Ireland are “under pressure to adopt and implement an anti-choice policy”, and he could not be part of it.
Paul also posted an image of a pro-choice banner he hung during the abortion referendum in 2018, which read: “Just because I’m pro-choice doesn’t mean I’m pro-abortion. . This means that I understand that your choice is not my fucking business, and I will always fight for your right to choose. “
He stressed that their limited outdoor seating would remain available, but until indoor dining was open to everyone, the White Moose CafÃ© would keep its doors closed.
âOther companies are welcome to change their mind when it comes to pro-choice, but the Moose is not to turn around,â added Paul.
