Earlier this week Barronelle Stutzman, the owner of Arlene’s Flowers, appeared on the Kelly File to discuss the lawsuit brought against her by the Washington State Attorney General when she declined to decorate for a same-sex ceremony. (She has recently declined the AG’s settlement offer that would have ended the litigation if she agreed to pay a $2,001 fine and surrender the right to make business decisions consistent with her beliefs.)
Here is a sample of the comments on the Kelly File Facebook page after the interview:
The political leadership of the LGBT movement wants to convince the world that the debate over conscience rights and religious freedom is a debate between those who hate gay people and those who don’t. In reality, its a debate between those who hate freedom and those who don’t.
