Court: No religious rancor in flowers for gay wedding case - New Haven Register

FILE - This March, 6, 2013 file photo shows Arlene's Flowers on Lee Boulevard in Richland, Wash. The Washington Supreme Court on Thursday, June 6, 2019, ruled state courts did not act with religious animus when they ruled that the Richland florist broke the state's anti-discrimination law by refusing on religious grounds to provide flowers for the wedding of a gay couple.

Here's why the Arlene's Flowers case is back in the state Supreme Court's hands

The Arlene's Flowers case is back before the state Supreme Court, nearly two years after justices unanimously ruled that the Richland flower shop's owner broke the law when she refused to design arrangements for a same-sex wedding. The state's high court is taking another look at the case in light of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in a separate but similar matter involving a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple. Attorneys for Barronelle Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flowers, filed their opening brief this week. More briefs - on both sides - will be...

Florist case reopens before Washington Supreme Court

The Washington case centers around 73-year-old Barronelle Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flowers in Richland, Washington. In 2013, Rob Ingersoll, a long-time friend and customer of Stutzman, asked her to arrange flowers for his same-sex wedding ceremony. Stutzman knew that Ingersoll was gay, and had always been happy to create flower arrangements for birthdays and other special occasions. However, because she believes marriage to be a sign of the relationship between Christ and his Church, she told Ingersoll that she could not make a flower arrangement for a same-sex wedding. Ingersoll initially said that he understood and asked her to recommend another florist. Later, however, his partner posted a message on social media about Stutzman declining to take part in the wedding, and it went viral. Soon afterward, she was informed that she was being sued by the Washington State attorney general and the ACLU. Stutzman, who is Southern Baptist, has said that she views weddings as more than just a job. She spends months or even years getting to know the bride and groom, to understand their vision and what they want to convey. Because her wedding arrangements are such a deeply personal labor of love, she said that she felt that she could not in good conscience design flower arrangements for a same-sex wedding. In February 2017, the Washington Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling against Stutzman. She then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to hear her case. While the actual damages being sought by the gay couple are only around $7 – the mileage cost of driving to another florist – Stutzman could be responsible for more than $1 million in legal fees to nearly a dozen ACLU lawyers opposing her in the case. Her home, business, savings, and personal assets are all at risk in the case. Over the last five years, Stutzman said she has received an outpouring of support and messages of encouragement from nearly 60 countries, but also death threats that have required her to install a security system and change her route to work. In a statement earlier this year, Stutzman said that she serves all customers, but cannot create products for events that conflict with her deeply-held religious beliefs. She said the Washington attorney general "has always ignored that part of my case, choosing to vilify me and my faith instead of respecting my religious beliefs about marriage." "When the state trial court ruled against me at the attorney general's request, I wrote the attorney general a letter urging him ‘to drop' the personal claims that risk stripping away ‘my home, business, and other assets'," she said. "He didn't do that. For him, this case has been about making an example of me-crushing me-all because he disapproves of what I believe about marriage." ...

The Arlene's Flowers case is back in the state Supreme Court – here's why

The Arlene's Flowers case is back before the state Supreme Court, nearly two years after justices unanimously ruled that the Richland flower shop's owner broke the law when she refused to design arrangements for a same-sex wedding. The state's high court is taking another look at the case in light of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in a separate but similar matter involving a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple. Attorneys for Barronelle Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flowers, filed their opening brief this week. More briefs - on both sides - will be filed over the next couple of months. The state Supreme Court could hear oral arguments during its winter term, which runs from January to March, but more likely will hear them in the spring term, which runs from April to June, said Lorrie Thompson, a state court spokeswoman. U.S. Supreme Court justices returned the case to the state court "for further consideration" in light of the federal ruling in favor of the Colorado baker. In that June ruling, justices didn't decide the case's larger issue - wh...

America in Bloom judges see flowers, historic sites, more

Ohio State University Mansfield's microfarm, the sunflower garden at Fifth and Main streets, the Mechanics Bank Courtyard and the Nature Park at the Richland County Fairgrounds. Mansfield joins Saratoga. California; St. Charles, Illinois; and Henderson County, North Carolina in America in Bloom's 25,001-50,000 population category, according to the organization. More Mansfield news: • Entertainment: Mansfield Children's Festival is Saturday • As part of museum renovation, Mansfield UMADAOP seeks oral interviews • Newsies 'a dream come true' for young actor Versaw said groups and organizations have been doing a lot of things over the last six to eight years and now want to bump it up and do more. "Everybody has been doing their part," he said. Judges will be looking at seven categories: flowers, landscaped areas, urban forestry, celebrating heritage, environmental efforts, community vitality and overall impression, he said. Woodard, who lives in West Jefferson outside Columbus, said she has been involved in America in Bloom for the past three years. "I just love what plants can do to a community," Woodard said. "It creates a lot of pride and the beautification efforts brings together a lot of people in the community. It's very rewarding," she said. Waller of Arroyo Grande, California, said as an America in Bloom judge she loves seeing the transformation of cities and towns all over the United States becoming the best thing they can be. To date, more than 250 communities from 45 states have participated in the program and more than 22 million people have been touched by it. Awards will be announced on Sept. 27-29 at AIB's National Symposium & Awards Celebration, held this year in Lexington, Kentucky, according to America in Bloom's news release. lwhitmir@nncogannett.com 4190521-7223 Twitter: @LWhitmir ...

Judges from national organization will evaluate Mansfield in Bloom's efforts

Ohio State University Mansfield's Microfarm, the sunflower garden at Fifth and Main streets, the Mechanics Bank Courtyard and the Nature Park at the Richland County Fairgrounds. "We need to get the word out to the community and we want to let the public know the judges are coming," he said. "There is one category, overall impression, and we want the people to know that's everyone in the community doing their part, picking up litter, killing weeds, putting a flower pot on their porch." Mansfield joins Saratoga. California; St. Charles, Illinois; and Henderson County, North Carolina in the 25,001-50,000 population category, according to the AIB organization. Versaw said groups and organizations have been doing a lot of things over the last six to eight years and now want to bump it up and do more. "Everybody has been doing their part," he said. "They (the judges) will spend two days looking at your community and they will be looking at six different categories and give you points one each one of those categories," he said. Those categories are flowers, landscaped areas, urban forestry, celebrating heritage, environmental efforts, community vitality and overall impression, he said. Professional volunteer judges from the America in Bloom (AIB) national awards program coming to Mansfield are Teresa Woodard and Laurie Waller. Woodard writes and produces garden and lifestyle stories for regional and national magazines. She blogs with two other garden writers at www.heartland-gardening.com and recently published a book with them. She is a Master Gardener Volunteer for The Ohio State University Extension, editor of the Master Gardener Training Manual and winner of the 2015 Ohio Outstanding Master Gardener Award. She gardens on two acres at her home in a conservation community west of Columbus, where, she nurtures prairie strips, an edibles garden and perennial beds. After 25 years as a teacher, Waller retired and moved to Arroyo Grande, California, where her husband Richard was born and raised. The Waller family were flower seed growers throughout the 20th century. Curious about coastal California horticulture, Laurie began volunteering with the local America In Bloom group, Arroyo Grande In Bloom, an all-volunteer, non-profit group. She completed the University of California Master Gardener program, where she currently volunteers as a helpline consultant. Under Laurie's stewardship, the floral displays program has flourished and been recognized for top honors within AIB. To date, more than 250 communities from 45 states have participated in the program and more than 22 million people have been touched by it. Awards will be announced on Sept. 27-29 at AIB's National Symposium & Awards Celebration, held this year in Lexington, Kentucky, according to America in Bloom's news release. lwhitmir@nncogannett.com 4190521-7223 Twitter: @LWhitmir ...
