Remember the Flap.

Well, Marjorie Christiffersen has resigned her positon as a manager of the restaurant and from the restaurant’s board of directors (via M/M).

As of Saturday evening, Marjorie Christoffersen was no longer employed at El Coyote, Frontiers magazine reported Monday on its website. Bill Schoeppner, a fellow manager at El Coyote, told Frontiers that Christoffersen tendered her resignation that night. Christoffersen, described on the El Coyote website as the “matriarch” of the 77-year-old restaurant, will also be resigning from the restaurant’s board of directors.

The trouble began last month when local bloggers uncovered Christoffersen’s donation. Christoffersen is a Mormon. A November 12 press conference intended to defuse the anger of the restaurant’s gay clientele backfired when Christoffersen refused to apologize for the donation and said she would not financially support efforts to repeal Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California. It’s been reported that gay and lesbian business at the Mexican eatery has dropped precipitously since then.

“Everybody is kind of used to her walking around the restaurant with a water pitcher going from table to table to table,” Schoeppner told Frontiers about Christofferson. “I guess that part is no longer going to exist.”

Hope the gay marriage bullies are happy. They drove away a woman who gave a pawltry $100 to the Yes on 8 campaign and rather than renounce her true feelings on gay marriage quit her association with a restaurant that has been in her family for generations.

Flap has speculated that the family will sell the restaurant that is located just south of the West Hollywood (homosexual area) of Los Angeles. and which employees a majority of staff that are homosexual.

Maybe they can find a gay owner who will take it off the family’s bigoted hands?

  1. Yes, it sad that Marjorie Christiffersen had to resign her job, and it is sad that other individuals have had to resign their respective jobs because of the followout of their contributions to Proposition 8.

    However, what is even more sad are the many thousands of gay and lesbians couples whose marriages are now at severe risk because Proposition 8 was enacted, and the even greater numbers of gays and lesbians who now do not have the right to get married in California. Don’t forget who the real victims are here.

  2. Oh please.

    How tolerant you gay marriage apologists are.

    Gay marriage is NOT a right no matter what one Justice of the California Supreme Court says. And, the people of California have spoken.

  3. Gay activists have shown themselves vengeful and intolerant. Good luck gaining compassion to your whine…I mean, your cause.
