Well, if you say you’re an “anti-fascist” but think the government has the authority to force businesses to violate their consciences, consult a mirror and a dictionary. You’re a fascist. Probably living at home with your mommy, statistically speaking. Well, the Washington State Supreme Court has ruled it can force anyone to violate their conscience. Meet Barronelle Stutzman, a floral artist.
That video was from November of last year. Here’s what the court ruled today:
A lower court ruled that Stutzman must pay penalties and attorneys’ fees for declining to use her artistic abilities to design custom floral arrangements for a long-time customer’s same-sex ceremony. Rather than participate, Stutzman referred Rob Ingersoll, whom she considers a friend and had served for nearly 10 years, to several other florists in the area who were comfortable promoting and participating in their ceremony. The two continued to chat about the wedding, they hugged, and Ingersoll left.
“Rob Ingersoll and I have been friends since very nearly the first time he walked into my shop all those years ago,” said Stutzman. “There was never an issue with his being gay, just as there hasn’t been with any of my other customers or employees. He just enjoyed my custom floral designs, and I loved creating them for him. But now the state is trying to use this case to force me to create artistic expression that violates my deepest beliefs and take away my life’s work and savings, which will also harm those who I employ. I’m not asking for anything that our Constitution hasn’t promised me and every other American: the right to create freely, and to live out my faith without fear of government punishment or interference.”
Let’s firstly note that Ms. Stutzman referred the client to other businesses who were totes fine with designing flowers for a gay wedding. Penis inserts optional. Didn’t matter. The Gaystapo marched against her. So this long time “friend” Rob Ingersoll, went home to his dearest lover boy and had a chat. Instead of taking one of Ms. Stutzman’s suggestions for floral arrangements, these titans of tolerance lawyered up. “Destroy that cackling witch for refusing us flowers at our dudely wedding!” they cried with gleeful lisps. Why go elsewhere, leave the little woman to her shop and her beliefs, when one can wage a scorched earth campaign while waving the rainbow love flag? #LoveWins
The Washington State Supreme Court ruled in favor of Mister and Mister Bully Von Nasty, and is making Stutzman pay up. All while calling what she did (referring their business to florists who were fine with gay weddings) “discrimination.” That’s right, the court and gutter monkeys at the ACLU, claim this little woman discriminated against TEH GAYZ. No word yet on what these gay guys did in suing this woman for being a Christian. Sounds like bigotry to me. But hey, I’m just a writer, not a fancy pants lawyer with a chip on her shoulder.
The Gaystapo cares not about a person’s beliefs, their conscience, their careers, employees or families. They want what they want, and screw you if you don’t completely agree with their way of life. They’ll rob you of your money, your livelihood, your artistic expression while putting themselves on the pedestal of tolerance. Repeat the oath of everlasting gay loyalty or be branded a bigot.
This is the left. You must completely accept, completely acknowledge their edicts, or you’re banished from humanity. #Progress.
Meanwhile, Muslim bakers across the nation refuse gay weddings with nary a peep from leftist “do-gooders.”
