Leatherby's ice cream is good - real good.
The Leatherby's family is great. They are kind, genuine and generous.
On a personal note, I might not even be here sitting at my desk at Mount Angel Seminary, if it weren't for the Leatherby family's commitment to the Catholic faith.
For all of those above reasons, I thank them.
Faithful to their faith, the Leatherby's supported the campaign Yes on 8.
It's a little sad that in the past few weeks after the elections they have been the targets of protests and "mean" tactics to accomplish what some No on 8 supporters say is a "goal to destroy you and your business!"
Hit the jump for more, and a video about it, too.
It is sad and disgusting that some people have stooped so low as making false claims on restaurant review websites about Leatherby's. For instance: "Ice cream in freezer for 6 months" - uh, sorry I've been there in the back, when they make it fresh. Or this asinine comment, "The serving was small" hmmm, anyone who has really eaten at Leatherby's knows their ice cream portions are humangous. Interestingly enough, most of the people who rated Leatherby's with low scores, didn't have active yelp accounts until after the elections... hrrrm... some of which have Leatherby's as the only restaurant that they have rated.
For those interested, a bunch of us were there last Sunday, and Leatherby's had a packed house with lines out the door in spite of those Protesters passing out free ice cream. Thanks protesters.
Support Leatherby's. Eat their ice cream. It's good.
Also, look out for a Prop 8 Apologetics post on the Young Adult Blog tomorrow.
