Shoppers looking on craigslist for some bargains got quite a shock from one potential couch-seller.

A woman in Leesburg, Va., is receiving national attention after she responded to queries about an ad on craigslist about her garage sale with a racist and homophobic email.

The email, sent to Gawker.com by a man who just needed some furniture, welcomes everyone to the sale - except "LGBT people, illegal immigrants, and muslims."

After all, she writes, she's looking to avoid "drama, terrorism, or illegal transactions with non-US citizens/illegal immigrants/people taking jobs away from people who belong and are legal in this country is desired. Thanks."

When the Gawker tipster, who is gay, emailed the woman back asking why she was discriminating against potential shoppers she replied, "i have gay friends, but i don't need that kind of unknown drama element around me as i know how it can be at times. no thanks. just like i don't want someone drunk or on drugs at the sale. homosexuality is a sin and i won't stack up your sin against mine, but i can choose the type of people to whom my belongings will end up with ... and what I'm supporting with that action."

I think she's way overreacting. Personally I'd inform the the foreigners that I need to see a green card, have the muslims make a blood oath declaring allegiance first and foremost to the US and swear on their burkha wearing grandmother that they will not blow up anything other than their waistlines. Now the homosexuals - hmmmm, well that would depend on whether Mark Sanchez is a prospective buyer. This is what I would require for anyone who wants to compete for my vintage beta max, snazzy wardrobe of JC Hammer signature parachute pants and timeless commodore computer. That's not unreasonable for a chance to purchase my treasures... is it?

I saw the title and started thinking these people had to be from West Virginia. I was partially right.
