    Done.

    Btw, I think businesses should be allowed to serve who they want, and to deny service to anyone else. Worked great up until the 1960s...

    This seems like more "poor persecuted Christian" syndrome..........

    Hey florist, here's a tip straight from your Messiah.......in spite of your "beliefs" how about you agree to do the flower arrangement for this couples wedding, you know the whole "love you enemy and wish them well" deal that Jesus taught. In doing so, throw in some random, generous acts of kindness to these folks. Then when they ask why you did that, you know the whole “be ready to give a reason for the hope you have”, you can say it’s because that’s what Jesus teaches His followers to do. You know like read what Jesus teaches and actually DO IT. By “protesting” gay marriage, Florist, all you’re doing is reinforcing that Christians are people that are “against” certain social issue rather than people that are hard at work trying to bring Heaven to earth through their actions daily………

    Dear God this sh!t wears me out……….

    good point, andy. i wonder if the florist would refuse service to someone who was re-marrying after divorcing their previous spouse?

    Or she is just a crappy business woman. I'll line my pockets with all the bible thumping bigot money I can get. I can always donate it if I decide I feel bad.

    WTF kind of florists turns down a wedding job. I'd make wedding bands for Hitler if he came back from the dead. Wouldn't like it, but I accept the fact that I'm a professional whore. Jeebus these idiots shoot themselves in the foot with way too much efficiency.

    When business people like that put themselves out of pocket and then out of business you can bet they'll blame Obama.

    hyperbole


    Besides, I'd have to make Zombie Hitler's wedding bands (assuming of course Ann Coulter being the bride) because he would probably kill me if I did the self-righteous thing and told him to fvck off. Zombie Nazis are not to be taken lightly.

    calling someone a name that's correlated to our Lord & Savior, or highly educated/hard-working/clever/successful is offensive in your opinion?

    got it.

    A good business man always has some ridiculous charges on the price sheet that he discounts for everyone he likes and does not for those he doesn't.

    What, creating metal rings that symbolize loss of freedom and becoming someone else's property for life?

    I'm pretty sure he already does that...
