The council meets at 7 pm tonight, Monday, November 21st, at City Hall, 525 N. Third Ave., Pasco, WA 99301.
The resolution was proposed by council member Bob Hoffman.
To boil the case down to its essentials, the supporters of Arlene's Flowers and Baronelle Stutzman argue that it's okay to discriminate against others, if your religious beliefs dictate that you do so. The precedence this would set is so obvious it isn't worth elaborating.
The Alliance Defending Freedom is supporting Baronelle Stutzman. The ADF, a powerful, tax-exempt conservative religious group, reportedly stated that it, “seeks to recover the robust Christendomic theology of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th centuries." It has been prominent in taking a stand against, "the homosexual agenda," abortion, contraception, and other issues that violate the teachings of the Bible
