Washington Anti-Gay Group: Nazi Brown Shirts Are After Arlene's Flowers

"Someone looking for a business idea might test just how strong the market for brown shirts actually is in Washington State.But who is really responsible? The most obvious target is the Attorney General himself. He initiated the lawsuit and is using taxpayer resources to go after a small business owner with conviction about marriage that he does not share.

"But the attorney general has not acted alone here. During the debate over same-sex 'marriage', situations like this were foreseen. In an attempt to prevent them, amendments were offered in both the House and the Senate that would have clarified that an individual or a small business owner has the legal right to make decisions in their lives and businesses based on their beliefs about marriage without fear of legal consequences. Those amendments were rejected.

"As the great philosopher Michael Jackson once wrote 'If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change.' Being upset isn't enough. We have to be willing to do something about it. And the best way to do that is to make sure you remember Arlene's Flowers when you vote next year. If you vote for the people who supported the policies that led to this outcome, or don't vote at all, you probably shouldn't complain." - Washington state's Family Policy Institute, via email.
