Title: Calligraphy shop sues against having to make invites for SSM . . .
Post by: Sandra Craft on September 25, 2016, 07:42:25 AM
. . . that no one asked them to do.  AZ court refuses to bar enforcement of non-discrimination law for anti-LGBT calligraphy shop (http://www.protectthyneighbor.org/posts/2016/9/21/0qo3p6kz0shbzqjas2ac3o9706dt68)  In any case, the Phoenix court refused to let them off the hook in case any SS couple in the future asks them to prepare wedding invites.

Maybe I'm getting cynical, but this just seems like an attention grabbing ploy to me.  I'm waiting for their GoFundMe page any day.

Excellent free publicity.

But the publicity works bith wsys - drawing attention to the shop and to gay rights at the same time!

Which, or will it be both, might be looking for funding?

They can continue to protest against SSM, and then some gays will come just to test it, and then they will say "We have to do this because our rights are being violated, but we are against it", and then anti-gays will come to support them, and pretty soon they are having a very profitable month.

I'm going to open a bar and put a "white men only" sign in front, and then when blacks and women come in, I'll point to the sign, and then sell them a beer under protest.

Old White Men Only! would be even better or you could just say 'Republicans Only!'  ;D

Maybe a "Morons who believe in god are unwelcome here" sign would be best.

Not to be confused with S&M.

Well, not in every case,  though I am sure it takes all kinds . . .

I'm so glad that you've asked.I thought is had something to do with masochists who wear SS uniforms :o.
I can imagine that someone would be offended by that.

I don't know. Not with the way the polls look. Scares me, to be honest. Makes me feel like people are out to get me.
