Legal proceedings between florist and gay couple continue
Florist should follow law, compassion, not religious doctrine
Everyone is aware of the florist who refused to serve a same-sex couple because of her relationship with Jesus Christ. [“Florist seeks fourth recusal,” NW Friday, June 28.]
I fail to see the connection. Tina Turner has a song, “What’s Love Got to Do with It?” and so I say, “What’s Jesus Christ Got to Do with It?”
I am a heterosexual male, so I have no dog in this fight. I simply try to maintain an open mind and be tolerant, compassionate and loving to people of all walks of life — just as Jesus of Nazareth did in his times as an example for all of us.
The law of the land here is the Constitution, not a religious text of one faith.
