FFRF sues Rhode Island florist

Bigotry is the gift that keeps on giving.

Last year, when student Jessica Ahlquist won her battle to have a religious banner removed from her public high school, the Freedom From Religion Foundation decided to congratulate her with a delivery of flowers (pansies, perhaps?). But when Twins Florist of Cranston, Rhode Island discovered who the flowers were for, they refused the delivery.

Now FFRF is suing Twins Florist based on a state law that (essentially) prohibits businesses from discriminating on religious grounds. Twins’ owner, Marina Plowman is defending her actions on free speech grounds. Should be interesting to see how this one turns out.
