|Washington state florist Barronelle Stutzman|
Taking her martyr lap from one right wing audience to the next, anti-gay Washington state florist (who was found to have violated the state's anti-discrimination laws) appeared today at the National Religious Broadcasters convention.
Barronelle Stutzman faces fines of up to $2,000 for refusing to serve gay customers seeking flowers for their wedding. She is now the face of martyrdom for the anti-LGBT folks in America.
Stutzman says “I can’t leave my relationship at the door of the Church. Christ is my life.” But, it seems she only refuses to sell flowers to gay folks.
A flower shop is not a church; a florist isn't a pastor; and customers of a business are not required to conform to the owner's religious beliefs.
