(Worthy News) – The Supreme Court on Friday declined to hear arguments in an appeal from a florist who refused to serve a gay couple’s wedding.
The woman, Barronelle Stutzman, runs Arlene’s Flowers, a Washington flower shop, and said she could not make a flower arrangement for a wedding because it would violate her Christian beliefs. The incident occurred in 2013, before the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage in its landmark 2015 decision Obergefell v. Hodges.
The Supreme Court held her appeal on hold while it considered arguments in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, in which it decided that Philadelphia had violated a Catholic foster care agency’s First Amendment right by cutting ties with it after learning it would not serve gay couples. The ruling, however, was widely considered a narrow victory for the foster care agency, not widely applicable. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
