Christian Florist: “I won’t sell my freedom!”

A Christian florist who refused to provide flowers for a gay wedding in the US has declined a settlement offer that would have saved her home and business.

The day after a judge ruled that Baronelle Stutzman had broken state laws, Washington State’s Attorney General Bob Ferguson offered to drop his lawsuit if she paid a fine and agreed to make flower arrangements for same-sex ceremonies.

But Stutzman rejected the offer, explaining in a letter to Ferguson that it’s about “freedom not money”.

“I certainly don’t relish the idea of losing my business, my home, and everything else that your lawsuit threatens to take from my family, but my freedom to honor God in doing what I do best is more important.”
