You want to know what the world is coming to? It’s this …
The owners of Brush & Nib Studio—a print shop in Phoenix—recently won a major LGBTQ discrimination case to keep them from having to print wedding invitations for same-sex couples.
Yes, in 2019, people are still suing to be allowed to discriminate, but that’s not what the world is coming to; it’s this …
Brush & Nib Studio has never been accused of discriminating against anyone, and they have never printed invitations to a same-sex wedding. They sued preemptively for the right to refuse to print same-sex wedding invitations, should that situation arise.
In 2016, Brush & Nib sued the city Phoenix, arguing that the city’s ban on discrimination violated the company’s freedom of speech. Brush & Nib co-owners, bigots, homophobes, asshats, Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, say they are “devout Christians” who wanted to overturn the civil rights law before any complaints could be filed against them.
Duka and Koski also want to post a sign in their window saying that they refuse to serve same-sex couples. I wonder how these two vile human beings would feel if they began seeing signs posted in businesses that said they refused to serve “devout Christians”?
And don’t get me started on any spot in the Bible that says hate is devout.
Brush & Nib’s operating principles were drawn up by the religious right legal group and says the business “is owned solely by Christian artists who operate this entity as an extension of and in accordance with their artistic and religious beliefs.”
It does not specify what their beliefs are. But I can guess: their beliefs are Hate; plain and simple. And that’s what the world is coming to; allowing people to sue so they don’t get sued for discrimination when they discriminate.
There you have it; and if you live anywhere near Brush & Nib, and opt to use their services, keep in mind that you are supporting hate masked as Freedom of Speech.
