In the case of Arlene's Flowers (Barronelle Stutzman), Washington Supreme Court justices Fairhurst, Johnson, Madsen, Owens, Stephens, Wiggins, Gonzalez, McCloud, and Yu got it utterly and wantonly wrong.They all ought to be removed from office.In their decision they have completely abandoned virtue for vice.In order for there to be discrimination as they perfidiously aver, "sexual gratification" (of any kind) has to be a defining characteristic of the human person.It is not.It is, instead, merely behavior that which we may or may not do but it is not integral to who we are.We are meant to rise above base impulses/sensitive appetites, not be enslaved by them.

The decision encourages homosexuality and suppresses (persecutes) the Christian religion.The latter is patently clear in Justice McClouds opinion that state non-discrimination law is precedent even if it substantially burdens the constitutional right to Freedom of Religion.So much for the Constitutions inalienable and enumerated rights!So are we to now understand that if this florist is asked to provide an arrangement by a member of a Satanic or Wiccan cult for their use that she must provide it in violation of the 1st Commandment?That is just anti-Christian bigotry in judicial robes.

This decision is a continuation of the ongoing effort to make a hodgepodge of neopaganism (pantheism, new age, self-idolatry, etc) the de facto religion of the state.Thus, the 60 percent of Washingtonians who are Christian must Resist!
