Printer Doesn't Have to Print Gay Pride Shirts, Says Kentucky Court

In the ongoing attack on Christians by the gay mafia, a printer from Lexington, Ky. found himself having to defend himself against a ruling by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission, which asserted he had to print messages supporting Lexington Pride Festival.

Blaine Adamson of "Hands On Originals," was forced to appeal the decision in order to keep himself from having to print messages on shirt that were against his religious beliefs.

ADF Senior Legal Counsel Jim Campbell, who argued before the court in Hands On Originals v. Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission, said this:

“The government can’t force citizens to surrender free-speech rights or religious freedom in order to run a small business, and this decision affirms that. The court rightly recognized that the law protects Blaine’s decision not to print shirts with messages that conflict with his beliefs, and that no sufficient reason exists for the government to coerce Blaine to act against his conscience in this way.”

This of course is the correct decision, but it was implied that because Adamson employed and did business with some who identify as homosexual, he didn't make a decision based upon that in particular, but because he disagreed with the message.

My thought is this shouldn't have any bearing whatsoever on the case. This is private property and a private business. A person can accept or deny services for whatever reason they choose. Having a politically correct outlook is irrelevant.

Any real Christian vehemently opposes homosexuality, in agreement with the only God, so it's their right to decide whether or not to engage in a business transaction with homosexuals, no matter what the reason is.
