Friday, August 23 we received a very upsetting phone call from Stan
owner of Eure Equipment Rentals. Mr. Eure informed us that "god
told me to pull the portolets" currently in our campground.
Mr. Eure also told us that he would not provide the additional 8
we had reserved for our biannual Gathering of the Tribes, September
He is doing this because he "recently found out we are Pagan" Mr.
Eure informed us that he would be removing the two toilets currently in
the primitive area of our campground "within the week"
Eure stated that "When I didn't know, I could not be held accountable, but now that I do, I am accountable" He also said that "I know you have Christian stuff out there, you do those Pagan Gatherings that I can not have my name associated with"
December 12, 2001 we paid Eure Equipment $1460.00 in advance for a one year contract to provide two portable toilets to our campground, and pump them weekly. We reserved the additional 8 toilets for our Spring and Fall Gatherings February 8. Eure provided portable toilets for our Fall Gathering 2001 and our Spring Gathering 2002. How he "just found out we are Pagan" we don't quite understand. We assume this means Pagan poop looks no different then Christian crap.
Immediately after Mr. Eure's call, we started contacting other portolet rental companies. Unfortunately, it looks like we will have to go out of the area (and pay a lot more money) to get portolets for our Fall Gathering since several large community events are being held the same weekend.
Needless to say, we are not real happy about this bizarre turn of events. We have faced many different forms of religious discrimination over the years, but prejudiced potty providers is a new one. We have two choices at this point, we can get angry, or we can laugh at the utter absurdity of the situation.
We pick laugh.
To that end, we decided that a Christian "rap" (or as we prefer to call it C-rap) regarding the situation was in order. There is not much of anything more pathetic then a bunch of middle aged white women trying to rap ...except perhaps a bunch of middle aged white women trying to rap about portolets.
