I’m grateful to Denny Burk for passing along this video about Barronelle Stutzman, the florist who refused to do a same-sex marriage in Washington St. Even though she had been a loving florist for 40 years, and had served this man for the last nine, when she drew the line at not doing this same-sex marriage due to her conscience as a Christian (she is a Southern Baptist, by the way), it was mentioned on social media, went viral, was seen by the Attorney General in Washington State—who then in an unprecedented move in that state, sued her. Even though numerous other florists would have provided their services, now it’s down to coercion: you have to now agree that same-sex marriage is OK. This woman stands not only to lose her business, but she is being sued personally and could lose her house.
Watch her story! Pray for her and give her the support necessary to get her through these harrowing days.
