The burning topic on the Etsy forums (and the Zibbet forums) today is that Zibbet founder, Andrew Gray, is the pastor of a Christian (C3) church. The OP, in this post, states her concerns about his ties to the C3 church and the fact that she and Andrew don’t share the same views on abortion and homosexuality, and this led to her decision to close her Zibbet shop. Since the OP felt others might also find Andrew’s beliefs relevant to their business decisions, she wanted to make them aware of his beliefs based on his then-public twitter postings. She also posted a link to a 2008, somewhat biased article about the type of church Andrew pastors.
The OP may as well have thrown a match into a tank of gasoline because the thread quickly ignited into a flame-throwing free-for-all that I won’t even attempt to try and explain. Just read it for yourself if you dare. But take the fire extinguisher.
