And there are are no other silk-screening tee-shirt places to print these people message.
Targeted attacks by the 3% (at most) population against any one who oppose their twisted agenda are never pretty.
Their tactic is to drive everyone into submission and compliance with their ideas.
No tolerance for you!!!
Because it never was about t-shirts, but about targeting this man for his unacceptable beliefs. Convert or die (embrace the perversion or have his livelihood destroyed).
This is ridiculous.
He should be able to refuse business.
I’ve always said that KY is more liberal than people think. The especially choose liberals there at the municipal level.
isn’t there a first amendment concerning freedom of the press?????
Are there any groups of Christians seeking GLBTA businesses to print church group T-shirts and Biblical messages? Then put the GLBTA business owners up in front of the commission for refusing to do business with Christians.
Sooo....it occurs to me that to avoid these Gestapo rulings and tons of legal and financial hassle, conservative business owners may be better served citing SCHEDULE, when encountering a business order they’d rather not fill.
“Yaa.....we can have those shirts for you....about August 2014. If that meets your needs, we require a 50% deposit.”
Or, cake, or, flowers, or rental accommodations, etc...
Gay pride, i.e., homosexual arrogance.
Ew, she’s not pretty, she looks like her dad after a shave.
I’m only saying this cuz the article called her a “beauty.”
Another targeted setup
I wonder if this so-called “commission” would have ruled the same way had a neo-nazi group wanted a “White Pride” t-shirt printed, and they had refused...
More to the point, I wonder why the attorneys didn’t argue it.
In the 1980s there were plenty of book, record, and poster publishers who rejected printing works they found offensive.
Even now commercial networks will reject some political ads they deem offensive.
The Lavender Mafia is a hysterical bunch of lady men.
Should have just quoted a price they couldn’t meet
does this commission have any regulatory authority? if not then why do they even exist and who is paying for it?
I think it is time to serious put an effort into disbanding these "human rights commission" things. They are like extra-judicial government entities that make up the rules as they go.
I mean, its sad to say so because there is still real discrimination in the world, and a tightly focused entity for that purpose wouldn't be a bad thing, but clearly there isn't nearly enough anymore, so they have plenty of time to go after businesses for not wanting to participate in the free speech rights of others.
We are very close to re-implementing slavery. Doctors will be forced to treat patients, bakers to make confections for events they oppose, wedding planners to plan weddings they think are immoral, and printers forced to help propagate messages they find offensive.
Meanwhile, if you make a different message shirt, the same government will refuse to let your child wear it to school; and in some cities, they will either prevent you from wearing the shirt, or turn a blind eye when people who dislike it attack you.
Two sins at once.
