The U.S. Supreme Court, on the last day of the 2020-2021 session, in a 7-3 vote—the dissenters were Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Clarence Thomas—declined to hear the case in which floral artist Barronelle Stutzman was sued by Washington State Democratic Attorney General Bob Ferguson and the American Civil Liberties Union after she refused services to a gay man for his civil wedding.

Stutzman, who is a Protestant, refused to provide flower arrangements to the same-sex “couple” for their civil “union” on the principle that it was against her religious beliefs and therefore infringed upon her right to exercise her religious freedom as stipulated by the First Amendment.

Just days prior to the Stutzman case, SCOTUS, in a 7-2 vote—the two dissenters were Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas—rejected a Virginia school board’s appeal to reinstate its transgender bathroom ban.

Praise the Lord
