The story behind the florist

It might sound like trivia, but there is a difference between being non discriminatory and cooperating with evil.

The CSMonitor has a nuanced story about a florist who refused to cooperate with a gay wedding, even though the customer was a friend.

She did not object to selling flowers or floral arrangements from her shop to Ingersoll, as she’d done many times before. What she objected to was the possibility of a job requiring her personal involvement in the celebration of a same-sex marriage. That would be a denunciation of her faith.
 So when Ingersoll arrived in her shop, excited to share his happy news, Stutzman was torn.
 “Rob was asking me to choose between my affection for him and my commitment to Christ,” she would later write in a Seattle Times essay. “As deeply fond as I am of Rob, my relationship with Jesus is everything to me.” ...
so she faces financial ruin.

headsup Ann Althouse, who adds this wry quote to her blogpost.

The point was to ruin her... It was to send a message to the [people of] the state and the nation that if you dare to say ‘I refuse to violate my religious faith,’ they will literally put everything you own at risk."
This has implications beyond cakes or flowers.

Under Obamacare, forcing people to pay for abortion pills and abortions are already in the courts.

And in the future, doctors, hospitals and hospices will be forced to cooperate with killing people by euthanasia, as is being done in Canada.

Slippery slope arguments are often denied, but very real. And if you don't think that all this pro killing the handicapped talk won't result in people killing the handicapped, then you are just as much a fool as President Obama who didn't think that shouting kill the cops might result in dead policemen.

The agenda was planned 40 years ago, and has taken time but with the dechristianization of America, will succeed, probably via the Supreme Court.

This is the missing piece the explains why religious folks might back a charlatan like Trump: Because if Hillary gets in, the agenda will go into high gear. Probably via the Supreme Court.

Luckily for her, the Bernadine "seamless garment" ideas have impressed SJN catholics (with the help of Soros money backed organizations that claim to be catholic) that SJW issues like immigration trumps killing, so back the democrats and ignore the problem.

Lesser of two evils anyone?

update: That didn't take long. Smith at NR notes there is a law in Vermont requiring doctors to counsel their patients that being killed is an option. They don't have to do it, they just have to bring it up as one of their "options".
