Washington Florist Who Refused Gay Wedding Job Says She 'Had To Take A Stand'

Washington Florist Who Refused Gay Wedding Job Says She 'Had To Take A Stand'

Commented Sep 4, 2013 at 18:20:31 in Gay Voices

“So what makes the liberal fruitcakes who threatened her with physical harm and damage to her business, so damned "tolerant"?”

Comeonman1 on Sep 4, 2013 at 22:37:18

“She claimed that. The police don't agree.”

“Ever see those signs in restaurants and bars that read: "We have the right to refuse service to anyone". It's her right. period.”

ettore on Sep 4, 2013 at 23:00:01

“yes, you are probably right, EXCEPT that certain reasons are prohibited by law to be used to refuse service.”

Neil H T Cameron on Sep 4, 2013 at 21:53:05

“No it isnt. Those signs actually mean nothing unless the person being refused service is disrupting their business or breaking the law.”

SluttyMary on Sep 4, 2013 at 21:40:03

“No, it actually isn't. There are several protected classes you can't refuse service to simply on that status. Now, if the gays were being rowdy and obnoxious, then they could be refused service because of the behavior, but not simply because they are gay.”

AC1982 on Sep 4, 2013 at 20:16:41

“I have never seen that sign outside of a bar, which would lead me to believe that it is intended for people who may become dangerous to themselves or others. What she could do is post a sign stating simply, "NO FLOWERS FOR GAY WEDDINGS", because presumably gays may buy flowers from her for other occasions, and she is presumably not asking for proof of sexuality before a purchase.”

leavesbound on Sep 4, 2013 at 20:01:46

“Displaying a sign informing your customers that you reserve the right to break the law does not give you the right to actually break the law. In my state you can display such a sign but if all the people that you refuse to do business with happen to be gay you are breaking the law and will lose business license and will be subject to lawsuit. There are federal laws that cover this as well but many states have more comprehensive laws regarding discrimination. They may get away with it for a while but eventually it will catch up with you. Bottom line, you do NOT have the right to refuse to do business with any class of people if it is illegal to discriminate against that class. Usually this includes discrimination based on race, religion, gender, national origin, age, and sexual orientation though details vary by state.”

Alisa Neely on Sep 4, 2013 at 18:25:48

“GUESS what.....if the state they are in has a law AGAINST discrimination for what ever reason....then they are BREAKING the LAW....and ever heard of the saying: THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT ?......they are in the business of providing a PUBLIC SERVICE.....and GOD MADE EVERYONE....and that incluudes the LGBT people.

“I advocate anihilating as many as possible. They're supported, funded, and trained throughout the Middle East, that includes Saudi Arabia. As for making them "more motivated" they already are. They are simply following the precepts set down in the Koran. ALL of them support terrorism. Islam is, at its very core, a violent theocracy. The Saudis are just tacit about it. The "business agenda" of Bush's freinds? Like what? If you're spewing "it's all about the oil" mantra, it's patently false. Hell, if it were true, we'd be paying 3cents a gallon instead of 3 bucks a pop. Most of that oil is exported to Indonesia, and the money is used to help re-build Iraq's infrastructure. In anycase, you're going to have to divest yourself of the notion that surgical strikes will succeed in this kind of war. Islamic terrorists will and have crossed borders; we wiil have to deal with that no matter where we retaliate in the Middle East.

“Hey Pitney:
Nice way to use the sacrifice of American troops in the typical nihilist fashion: not out of respect for the fallen, but as another notch in your anti-war belt.
It's difficult for you socialist “democrats” with your post-election trauma and the weekly trips to your therapist, but the rest of America is sick and tired of the imbecilic regurgitations that "Bush lied".
You want lies? Bubba Clinton used the Oval Office as a conduit for high crimes. His Chinese/Indonesian friends Charlie Trie, John Huang, and James Riady bought the 1996 “election” in exchange for classified satellite technology. Bubba’s callous indifference to the terrorist attacks on his watch; Khobar Towers, the embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, the USS Cole, and the FIRST World trade Center attack in 1993, gave al Qaida a green light. Oh, wait, he did have a response--a wag-the-dog bombing of Kosovo and an aspirin factory in Iraq. Clinton flushed national security down the toilet, and not a peep out of you liberal blockheads.
To defeat the enemy you must strike where they live and breed. The Middle East is a cesspool of the Islamofascism which attacked the United States on 9/11. Terrorists, abetted by every country there, can and do cross borders.
How ‘bout forming pictures of the 3000 9/11 victims into the face of Bin Laden, Hussein, Bubba Clinton, or any one of the number of Islamofascist Middle Eastern states?
That would be fitting.”

Has it occurred to you that Bush is using the real problem of terrorism as an excuse to pursue the business agenda of his friends, and is doing so in a way that increases not decreases hatred and animosity toward the US that makes it easier for terrorist groups to recruit?

Your "hit them where they breed" comment implies that genocide is the only way to deal with terrorism. Do you advocate killing all muslims, all Arabs, or both? Won't that make those you haven't yet killed more motivated to attack us?

Wouldn't it make more sense to target those who actually attacked us, and figure out ways to reduce sympathy for their cause?”
