Wash. Florist Who Refused to Make Same-Sex Wedding Decorations Countersues
A Washington woman who was sued by the state's attorney general after refusing to create floral arrangements for a same-sex wedding ceremony has filed a countersuit that argues her decision is constitutionally protected.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed the countersuit Thursday in Benton County Superior Court on behalf of Barronelle Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flowers in Richland, Wash. Stutzman's attorneys say the state cannot force her to make decorations for same-sex weddings because she would have to go against her religious convictions to do so.

"Everyone knows that plenty of florists are willing to assist in same-sex ceremonies, so the state has no reason to force Barronelle to violate her deeply held beliefs," said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Dale Schowengerdt in a statement.

Ditto S.F. John.

Matthew 19
3 And some Pharisees came to Him, testing Him, and saying, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause at all?"
4 And He answered and said, "Have you not read, that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE,
5 and said, 'FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE; AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH'?
6 "Consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."---NASB

Good!

I'm so tired of homosexuals trying to ride the coattails of the blacks' rights movement of the 60s which sought to convict those abusing their right to refuse service to anyone as a pretext for their racism. Racism=bad. Opposing evil/homosexuality=good. Unfortunately the political machinations surrounding the two movements are difficult for the morally ambivalent in our society (and there sure seem to be a whole lot of them now) to distinguish.

It will be interesting to see how this one pans out. I believe this is just the sort of case which could set a precedent. If she wins, the sodomites will have to think twice before embarking on further law suits against Christians.
