Washington Supreme Court Says Christians Can Be Forced to Participate in Gay Weddings

Olympia, Washington—The Washington Supreme Court has ruled that Christians can be compelled to participate in gay weddings. Baronelle Stutzman, a florist who declined to participate in a wedding involving long-time homosexual clients, has lost in Washington and will now take her case to the nation’s Supreme Court.

After being forced to pay all attorney’s fees as well as penalties, Stutzman’s life savings are jeopardy.

In a joint statement, the homosexual couple said the ruling affirmed that they were “on the right side of the law and the right side of history,” adding they were glad they stood up for their rights.

Mutterings: What rights, exactly? The right to force others to approve of your actions and legitimate them? And why do people think it’s a court’s job to determine who is “on the right side of history”?
