Why it’s called the ‘Stupid Party’ – ‘Washington Lawmaker’s Office: If Gay People Face Discrimination, They ‘Can Just Grow Their Own Food’
All of this started in and is centered around a Spokane couple, 2 men, are going to get married and went to a florist they’d been doing business with for years to order the flowers for their wedding.
The florist refused because she says her religion, Christianity, forbids gay marriage.
State Senator Hewitt is out of Pasco, South East Washington.
As to the florist?
She can start paying for her own roads that deliver her product and which she delivers her product on, roads that are built for all regardless of sexual orientation. She can start paying for her own police department that protects her business yet provides protection regardless of sexual orientation. She can start paying for her own fire department that provides fire protection to all regardless of sexual orientation.
‘A bill introduced in Washington state last week would allow people to use their “sincerely held religious beliefs” to justify discrimination against people based on their sexual orientation’.
‘One activist started calling the bill’s sponsors to find out more about why they supported such a negative bill. His primary question was, “What are rural gays supposed to do if the only gas station or grocery store for miles won’t sell them gas and food?”
‘A staffer at state Sen. Mike Hewitt’s (R) office had a unique reply’:
“Well, gay people can just grow their own food”.
