Small Town Florist Warns: ‘Gay’ Art Mandate Threatens ‘Everyone’

Don’t kid yourself: The government that gives itself the authority to order a “small-town florist” to advocate a message that violates her faith isn’t going to be satisfied with controlling one “small-town florist.”

That’s the warning from Washington state entrepreneur Barronelle Stutzman as the state Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments in her discrimination case on Tuesday.

She was penalized by the state for declining to promote a homosexual wedding through her floral artistry.

The state Supreme Court last winter agreed to hear the case in a terse note signed by Barbara Madsen, the chief justice.

The Alliance Defending Freedom, which is defending Stutzman in court, explained a lower court ordered her to pay penalties and attorneys’ fees “for declining to use her artistic abilities to design custom floral arrangements for a longtime customer’s same-sex ceremony.”

The lower courts ruled that not only was Stutzman liable as a business operator, but her personal assets and property also were at risk. full article
