Liberal Filmmaker Michael Moore Exercises Right to Decline Business When Beliefs Conflict With Law

RALEIGH, N.C. — Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore is among the latest to decline to do business in North Carolina due to his personal beliefs about homosexuality and gender identity, a move that some are actually applauding as a good result of the state’s controversial new law.

“I have asked my distributor NOT to book my film in any theater in North Carolina due 2 their bigoted law against LGBTQ ppl. They have agreed,” Moore Tweeted on Thursday.

The filmmaker is currently promoting his new documentary “Where to Invade Next,” a film that “examines how Europeans view work, education, health care, sex, equality, and other issues.”

“From cafeteria food to sex ed, Moore looks at the benefits of schooling in France, Finland and Slovenia. In Italy, he marvels at how workers enjoy reasonable hours and generous vacation time. In Portugal, Moore notes the effects of the decriminalization of drugs,” an outline of the film reads.

But in response to Moore’s announcement, some remarked that the results of North Carolina’s new “bathroom bill” aren’t so bad.

“Hey, SOUTH Carolina is considering a similar law! Better boycott us, too, just to be on the safe side,” one wrote.

Others chimed in with “please boycott TN as well” and “add PA as well.”

Last week, a pornography site also announced that it was blocking access to North Carolina residents out of its objection to the legislation, which some applauded as well.

As previously reported, last month, North Carolina lawmakers passed the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act after the Charlotte City Council voted to expand the city’s non-discrimination ordinance to add provisions for homosexuals and those who identify as the opposite sex—including in regard to restroom and locker room use.

“Public agencies shall require every multiple occupancy bathroom or changing facility to be designated for and only used by persons based on their biological sex,” the legislation reads in part. “Local boards of education shall require every multiple occupancy bathroom or changing facility that is designated for student use to be designated for and used only by students based on their biological sex.”

Gov. Pat McCrory promptly signed the Public Facilities Act into law on the same day of its passage, and later released a fact sheet to clarify what he believed were misunderstandings about the content of the ordinance.

“Businesses are not limited by this bill. Private individuals, companies and universities can adopt new or keep existing nondiscrimination policies,” it read in part. “[I]f a privately-owned sporting facility wants to allow attendees of sporting events to use the restroom of their choice, or install unisex bathrooms, they can. The law neither requires nor prohibits them from doing so.”

“This law simply says people must use the bathroom of the sex listed on their birth certificate,” McCrory outlined. “Anyone who has undergone a sex change can change their sex on their birth certificate.”

McCrory issued an executive order last week to reiterate many of the items in the fact sheet, and called upon lawmakers to present legislation that would allow homosexual and transgender residents to sue for discrimination in employment matters.

    North Carolina must be upset at itself for not having a Michael Moore C class movie playing in their state. They will miss a lot.

    • Peter Leh

      yep

    • gizmo23

      NC is already caving

  • Peter Leh

    so what is the difference my BUS 101 friends?

    Guess people will have to look for another overweight director with a funny hairdo who creates movies from a hard Left worldview. That should be difficult. 😛

    Also, note the blatant hypocrisy: Leftist’s can refuse to do business with large segments of the population based on their personal “convictions.” However, when Christians or Conservatives refuse to do business based on their convictions, it’s labeled bigotry and deemed illegal. Nice double standards.

    • gizmo23

      So you would hope the state forces people to go into business for themselves?

      “Leftist’s can refuse to do business with large segments of the population based on their personal “convictions.” However, when Christians or Conservatives refuse to do business based on their convictions, it’s labeled bigotry and deemed illegal. Nice double standards.”

      There is no double standard. Moore has chosen to not sell his product in NC. That is a decision any business owner is free to make. Choosing not to do business in a certain location versus choosing to DO business in a certain location but turn away certain customers, is not the same thing, no matter how badly you, or others, want to pretend that it is.

      • Josey

        So I choose not to do business with Disney, allow their shows or movies into my home or go to their amusement parks, I choose not to buy coca cola, I choose not to use pay pal, I choose not to watch AMC or do business with any of the others that are banning business in N.C. because I will not be bullied or afraid of their tactics but instead will do business with all businesses that are for protecting children and women from the perverted men who will put a dress on, heels on and pretend to be transgender to gain access to innocent ppl, they are the ones that I am concerned about not those who have had sex changes and now look like women although that is not right according to the Bible but all sin is wrong and harmful and we are all guilty until we accept Christ.

        • acontraryview

          I’m curious, how is it you are able to post online if you are boycotting all companies that are against such laws?

          “instead will do business with all businesses that are for protecting children and women from the perverted men who will put a dress on, heels on and pretend to be transgender to gain access to innocent ppl”

          What businesses are against protecting children and woman from perverted men who will put a dress on, heels on and pretend to be transgender to gain access to innocent ppl”?

          What is to keep a male from doing that now?

          What businesses support bills like HB2?

        Let me be clear on the Two points I initially made before you moved the goalposts:

        1). Michael Moore's are a dime a dozen. 2). This isn't just about Michael Moore, it's about hypocritical Leftist's refusing to do business with the general public in a particular area because those peoples beliefs / practices conflict with theirs. Moore et. al product / services were sold in North Carolina prior to the law change. Some of the public living there were initially his potential consumers, just as the public at large in any state is his target market. Now, Moore has decided not to sell future product, just as other "entertainer's" have also pulled planned, or proposed services based on their Leftist beliefs.

        Bottom line: Moore et. al "celebrities" in the news of late previously did business in North Carolina prior to the law change. This isn't a marketing or expense issue, it's a belief [matter of conscience] issue.

        • acontraryview

          Please explain how my comment you quoted was a “special pleading fallacy”.

          I moved no goalposts. Your analogy was flawed.

          If Moore chose to do business in NC, but then only allowed certain people to come to his films, while not allowing others, then you would have a valid argument. But that is not the case.

          He, like any other person, has decided not to do business in a certain location. He is not picking and choosing who he will do business with in NC, he is choosing where he will do business. Just as a Christian is free to choose to not do business in a location that has protections regarding discrimination based upon sexuality.

          “it’s a belief [matter of conscience] issue.”

          I completely agree. Just as it would be a belief (matter of conscience) issue if a Christian choose not to open a business in CA due to their anti-discrimination laws. That is their choice, just as is it Moore’s choice. There is no double standard.

  • Bertha Warren

    I guess it all about what the flesh want, and Word of Jesus do not matter. This thing is bigger than who can you a bath room or where they can use the bath room. This thing is rebellion against Word of Jesus. No one cares about the Wrath of God, on disobeying people. Oh, this generation says God is to loving to, to pour out wrath on sin. Satan is deceiving lot, of souls.

    • Ambulance Chaser

      The Word of Jesus? What did Jesus say about transgender people?

  • Amos Moses

    Who knew keeping the freaks out was so easy…….. just pass a law they seemingly do not like and ……whoosh…….. gone like a bad stench in the wind……….

    • gizmo23

      Maybe NC can become the new Mississippi

      • Amos Moses

        Maybe the both will, so what? Doing right is not the easy path………..it is only the right path.

        • gizmo23

          High murder, abortion, poverty, welfare sounds good

          • Amos Moses

            Yeah, letting sin in causes all that…….what else is new? Welfare,,,, actually causes sin….causes people to rely on government and men…. not Christ…. detriment to self-sufficiency and caring for ones family……. what follows is not good…. as you point out…

          • gizmo23

            The South is the most sinful part of the coutry and the most conservative

          • Amos Moses

            Well, not sure what “conservative” even means or has to do with it……

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Awe come on now you are being a bigot . You- All better behave or someone from NC may just have to sue you Sugar Britches. I’m from the south and I feel discriminated against by you. Bless your heart you can’t see the forest for the trees.

          • Amos Moses

            Welfare is modern US “slavery”….. not biblical slavery….totally different….. and is not a good ending for anyone…………

          • ComeOnPeople!

            The borrower is slave to the lender. Hey now thats a plan!

    • Josey

      lol…I am thinking of moving to N.C. 🙂 That state is looking more appealing to me everyday.

  • Steve Buckley

    Good for them. It’s not like Moore’s movies were all that great to begin with.
    And porn boycotting…. I’m sorry. I don’t see a downside to that at all. Sounds like a genuinely good thing to me.

    • Cady555

      The rate of porn site visits is higher in the south than anywhere else. There are a lot of very unhappy people right now.

      • Josey

        yea right, then they should move to cali.

        • ComeOnPeople!

          Ahahaha

  • ComeOnPeople!

    hmmm ok so one group of people can deny service if they don’t believe a law is just but a cake maker cannot do the same. Maybe NC should throw a tantrum and take them to court for denying services . ahahaha This world has become upside down folks!

    • gogo0

      do you see the difference?? these are different things, and pretending that they are the same in order to say you are a victim or someone else is a hypocrite is a transparent and very sad lie.

      So you are saying the state should be able to force business to serva any and all

      • ComeOnPeople!

        Service is just that service. It use to be that a store could post a sign that said “no shoes, no shirt ,no service.” OH NO nudists are being discriminated against. Where does it end. The world is quickly becoming a giant playground filled with pouting children. I’m sorry but some things are wrong and no you can’t have your way just because you take your toys and go home. I hope NC stands their ground.

        • gizmo23

          I hope they lose millions of dollars

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Now that took a high interagency to pen! Na na na boo boo would have been a good one also. Ahahaha

        • Ambulance Chaser

          Where are nudists a protected class?

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Well because they believe they were born naked and shouldn’t be forced by businesses to wear clothing. I mean come one! Everyone deserves their rights no matter how it affects those around them or how much it departs from reality. I believe I’m a man and a woman so I demand NC businesses all have a bathroom for me marked with both genders. I believe I have no gender therefore I demand NC businesses take all gender signage off the bathroom doors so I can go pee in peace without seeing the words male or female or those dreaded stick people with pants or a skirt on them. Were do we draw the line?

          • Ambulance Chaser

            It would be really helpful if you limited your outrage to things that have actually happened.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            My point was to answer your question. Government cannot protect some people groups without protecting ALL people groups. Nudists are real people, there actually is whole colonies of Nudists… so if you cannot deny services to anyone, then you cannot deny service to a Nudist practicing what he believes. It all becomes relevant without any absolutes.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            We have these amazing things called “words.” You may have heard of them. We can use them to distinguish between one thing and another . If we want to make it illegal to discriminate against customers based on their gender, religion, and race, but not on their clothing preference, clique, or what they had for dinner yesterday, we can use these “words” to write a law that says that.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            If you use words to say one type of male can enter a ladies restroom but another type of male cannot then you are discriminating. A male is a male is a male. To say if a male feels a certain way about himself then he is allowed privileges apart from those offered to other males is ridiculous. Just as ridiculous as offering a nudist entrance into a place of business solely based on his feelings that he was born naked and should not be forced to wear clothing.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            “If you use words to say one type of male can enter a ladies restroom but another type of male cannot then you are discriminating.”

            Yes, you are. There are many forms of discrimination that are perfectly legal and acceptable. This is one of them. (I think this is also a good time to point out that a transwoman would be simultaneously giving up the right to use the men’s restroom.)

            “A male is a male is a male.”

            The psychiatric community disagrees with you. However, if you think your own research on the subject is more comprehensive and more accurate than the APA’s, feel free to publish a paper.

            “To say if a male feels a certain way about himself then he is allowed privileges apart from those offered to other males is ridiculous.”

            I agree. Luckily, a transwoman is not a male. A male to female transgender is, in every respect other than genitalia, a woman.

            If you feel you can prove otherwise, I again look forward to reading your paper.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            What has been in medical text books for years identifies who are males and who are females. You have only to study the anatomy of humans to know which are which. Psychiatry is devoted to the diagnosis, prevention, study and treatment of MENTAL disorders, so if the Psychiatric community are telling a person who has a penis that if he feels like a woman, he is one, they are causing their patient more harm then good by helping him to be removed from reality.

    • acontraryview

      Not the same thing.

      Moore has chosen to not sell his product in NC. That is a decision any business owner is free to make. Choosing not to do business in a certain location versus choosing to DO business in a certain location but turn away certain customers, is not the same thing, no matter how badly you, or others, want to pretend that it is.

  • TheBottomline4This

    Liberals are such hypocrites. They say Conservatives can’t deny doing business because they disagree with a law, but Moore can decline to do business in a state that has a law he disagrees with??? Ya better check every state’s laws then Moore, because I’m sure you’ll find atleast one law in each state you disagree with.

    • gogo0

      you guys are still not thinking this through, probably because if you did you would have to admit that this analogy is nonsensical.

      like lacking religion is not a religion, not going to or doing business in a state is not ‘withholding business’ from anyone. if you want to give money and consume services from to paypal, disney, MM, and other companies and people that don’t want to do business in NC, you are 100% able to do that. you aren’t being denied.

      if you are gay and want to consume services from a fundamentalist christian bakery, you are 0% able to. you are being denied.

      do you see the difference?? these are different things, and pretending that they are the same in order to say you are a victim or someone else is a hypocrite is a transparent and very sad lie.

      • TheBottomline4This

        People who are doing wrong things, don’t deserve special treatment. It is wrong to go against the sex you were born. Born male, will die male. Born female, will die female. Why they can’t accept the truth of who they were born is craziness. They are believing a lie in thinking they are the opposite sex. If they would accept who they are this bathroom thing wouldn’t even be an issue. The lie is they believe they are the opposite sex, which is not true. Do you see that?

        • gogo0

          so you are saying that divorcees need to be punished too. they are doing wrong things and don’t deserve special treatment, so why is their sin being ignored?

          • TheBottomline4This

            I didn’t mention divorce. Don’t distract from what I did mention…some people refuse to accept their birth sex. That is a very sad lie.

          • gogo0

            okay, so it’s wrong to be trans. that is settled, now what are you going to do about divorcees? adulterers? straight people who have committed sodomy? you guys are focusing on a very narrow group of people, do you think that jesus would want you to judge and punish only them and not others?

          • TheBottomline4This

            “That is settled”?? So you agree it IS wrong to be trans?

          • gogo0

            no, i know youre not going to change your mind, so there is no reason to argue the point -so i just set it aside so we could take a look at fundamentalist christianity’s hypocrisy.

          • TheBottomline4This

            lol…I didn’t think it was really settled. Liberals love to try to distract from an issue and brush it aside to get on to their other weak complaints. In the end, you are wrong, so really no further discussion on this issue will be of use since you are not going to change your mind. Have a nice day gogo 🙂

          • gogo0

            the picking and choosing of things the bible and jesus say is something most people avoid having to explain, so i dont blame you bowing out without acknowledging it. have a nice day!

          • TheBottomline4This

            LOL. If you won’t say that the trans issue is wrong and we can “settle” that, then why continue?? I can explain everything about the additional issues you have brought up gogo, but you have to admit that the trans choice is wrong. You won’t do that though, so no reason to go back and forth on trying to convince you otherwise. You are the one bowing out in not dealing with the trans issue. Have a nice day gogo 🙂

          • gogo0

            before anyone flags/removes it again, take a moment and think about why you are doing it. there is nothing incorrect or offensive, so is it just something you don’t want to think about?

            First of all there are none righteous apart from Christ and accepting His free gift of salvation and second, Christians aren’t punishing anyone, that is left into God’s hands, we are only preaching what God’s word says and not encouraging others on in sickness, sin kills and destroys no matter what form it shows up in and Christ Jesus is the only way and one to deliver a person from it. Know Christ, accept His gift and receive life eternal and deliverance.

        • Josey

          you should hear the stories of the ones who think they were born a cat or whatever animal, or those that think wearing a diaper and acting like a baby is alright, where does it end? Where are the ppl who used to say this is behavior that needs changed, these ppl need help not encouragement to continue in their sickness. God is going to end it all soon and set things right, praise His name forever!

          What we see is many have no clear concept of the biology, neurological development and the full range of qualities people can have.

      We have always said a business can set the paterameters of their business.

      Fancy cakes for celebrations Yes/No
      Cupcakes Yes/No
      Delivery Yes/No
      Do business in that state Yes/No

      None of this discriminates against a specific individual.

      Discrimination = Baker will make a fancy cake and deliver to a specific venue if A orders it, but won’t do the exact same thing for customer B.

      • ComeOnPeople!

        Will make fancy cake and deliver to customer B if not against a long held social and/or religious belief. It’s not against B , it’s against an activity that goes against the belief of the Christian or is offensive to them. Christian bakers have refused to make items with slogans or activities they disagreed with for years. Those who are satanist who want a cake that says satan is god would be turned down but if customer S (satanist) wants a cake with a Happy Birthday slogan … well what do you know… customer S gets their yummy. Or how about customer A#2 (atheist) who demands a slogan of “there is no god” ? Mister Christian you must bow down to every whim of man and go against your conscience or you shall be seeing customer A , B , S and A#2’s lawyers and loose everything you worked so hard to build!!! There are T-shirt printers who will print a shirt for a Gay person but not a message against their beliefs . It’s an art form, they are creating and to go against their chosen artistic venture is to destroy the reason they picked up the pen or the icing. It’s called freedom of expression, not just for the LGBT, but for everyone. If a business doesn’t offer the service I desire, I’m a grown up and I simple take my business to one that does. I don’t stomp my feet and pout until I get my way. Their are many many businesses that will gladly print Gay, satanic, or atheist messages on any item they may choose… cake, t-shirt or hey how about a bumper sticker so the whole world can share their view first hand. I think I shall purposely seek out and find myself a gay Baker and demand they make a cake that reads Homosexuality is a sin, or a seek out a satanist baker and demand he make me a yummy that reads Jesus is LORD. If they don’t comply because of their held beliefs , I will stomp my feet and demand they do so OR ELSE!

      No, they can’t refuse a customer responding to a public offer because of their civil rights class.

      There are plenty of other reasons you can refuse a customer.

    As badly as some people which to compare this decision to businesses turning away customers based upon the owner’s religious belief, it is not an apt comparison.

    Moore has decided not to sell his product in NC. That is a business decision that any business is free to make. Is decision is location based – not individual based.

        Oh my goodness, yes, if someone knocks a cap off your head, death occurs in 5 minutes or less.

        Paranoid twit.

        Be careful, I got blocked by Charisma

        • The Skeptical Chymist

          How long ago was that? Seems like I’ve seen you there quite recently.

          • gizmo23

            today,and I don’t know why. I don’t insult people or call people names.
            I’ll be around somewhere. Thanks for the support

    Liberals freely bully the Christians in USA. Americans must not submit to bullies. Americans must stay free by submitting to God alone. Freedom = submission to God. If man does not submit to God, he either enslaves another or becomes a slave to another.

    North Carolina is becoming a utopia in USA with all the junks of the world staying out of it.

  • Superman

    Funny how these lowlifes don’t see the hypocritical irony of their actions. They expect Christians to be forced to take actions contrary to their religious beliefs, but yet, they don’t want to be forced to do the same contrary to their own personnel beliefs.

      I’d expect him to follow the laws just the same.

      You know, like if he tried to refuse to let someone attend a film showing because they were Christian (or whatever the closest thing he does to provide a service for a customer is.) I’d fully support suing him or some form of penalty.

      I’d fully support a Christian couples right to refuse to do business within a certain city because of their laws.

      No hypocrisy at all.

      • Superman

        The equivalent is Moore must do business in North Carolina regardless of their laws. He doesn’t get to pick and choose which states to boycott. Moore either does business with all the states or none of them. That is what you hypocritical nutjobs are saying to Christians.

        • Jalapeno

          ” That is what you hypocritical nutjobs are saying to Christians.”

          Not at all.

          There is no law that says that you can’t pick and choose locations, nor is there a law that says that you can’t make decisions based on a persons political views.

          • Superman

            Wrong on both counts. 1) A business can not set-up shop anywhere they want. They must obey local ordinances. However, a business can decide in which states to expand, for example. 2) I don’t agree with same-sex marriage, a political issue, so therefore I will not take part in any same-sex marriages; however, some states and/or localities say that is against their laws.

          • Jalapeno

            I thought it was pretty obvious from the context that I mean that they can choose not to operate in an area.

            Did you know that some people are protected based on their sexual orientation?

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Seems only the some people as of late are those who are LGTB . Those who are straight or look down at their anatomy and admit what sex they are , are no longer protected.

          • Jalapeno

            You’re basing that on what, exactly? The fact that we aren’t forcing transgenders to use the bathroom that some other people want them to use?

          • ComeOnPeople!

            The fact that all the women going into a LADIES restroom are being forced to share that restroom with a man. Any person that has a penis is a male and does not belong in a females restroom. Back in the day if a man entered a Ladies restroom the whole of society would have rebuked him. Now with an immoral court system in place, everyone must bow down to immorality or be labeled a bigot. A person with a penis is not forced to use a Man’s Restroom, it is there as a service for when he needs to relieve himself. What he believes about his gender means nothing, a restroom is simply there for him to use. It’s not a public forum or a soap box , it’s simply a place to relieve yourself.

          • Jalapeno

            I’d rather share the bathroom with someone with a penis than someone who identifies as a male.

  • hytre64

    Mr. Moore – I applaud your stance, and suggest that you go even further and decline to make any more movies and refuse to have any of your movies shown anywhere until North Carolina changes it’s laws…

    • Josey

      I second that…:)

  • Bertha Warren

    Transgender is a Webster word, trying to describe a behavior. I stand on Word of Romans 1: 18-32. What about you. The never flesh never stop wanting. The is enemity of Jesus. You know the scripture.

  • Bertha Warren

    Pau had to deal with early church, about sexual behavior. False teacher said, we can do anything in this body, because it going to die anyway. Paul response, we have to give an account, of all the deeds being doing in our body. We have to stand, before a Holy God. The Holy Spirit warns us before, we sin against God and His Word.

    How we get his films banned in Virginia – this would be great.

  • alanjason .

    Here’s why the law was passed. Without the law, a guy who’s a perv can just dress up as a woman and go into a woman’s bathroom..This law is to protect people from the pervs who abuse the system. It’s not a law against people who genuinely identify as the opposite gender.

  • alanjason .

    To all you people who hate the law. Do you want a guy in a dress just walking into a bathroom while your young daughters are naked in one of the stalls? You do realize that with all the transgender rights stuff going on right now, the rapists and pervs are going to use this as an opportunity to follow a pretty young girl right into the bathroom.

    USA must not be ruled by the liberals. Liberals do not provide rights or freedom. The West must stop bullying the Christians; bullying the colored people was wrong last century but so is bullying the Christians. The West must stop seeking new victims for bullying. No bullying whatsoever. Period. For that, liberals’ dominion must get abolished in the West. The West needs Judeo-Christian values for morality and fairness.
