Bigoted Foot in Mouth

Boxing champ Manny Pacquiao gets banned (then unbanned) from a trendy L.A. shopping mall by its politically ambitious owner for expressing a mainstream opinion about gay marriage.

Michele Malkin has the goods:
L.A. bigwig developer Rick Caruso, who has mayoral aspirations, squeezed himself into the Catholic-bashing clown car. He announced on Twitter that Pacquiao would be banned from his trendy shopping complex, The Grove. The mall, Caruso wrote, “is a gathering place for all Angelenos, not a place for intolerance.”
Except for intolerance of completely mainstream views on gay marriage that millions of people of faith hold.
L.A. media outlets reported that The Grove has retracted its ban. Nonetheless, as of late Thursday, Caruso had failed to apologize on Twitter or acknowledge the false smears that prompted the Soros goon squad to demand a boycott against Pacquiao. Caruso also refused to answer questions about his own rancid double standards:
Did he ban President Obama from his retail developments for publicly opposing gay marriage before he supported it?
Would Caruso be banning devout anti-gay Muslims from The Grove?
What kind of similarly selective tolerance litmus tests would Caruso support if elected to public office?
