“A win for religious freedom, a win for artistic freedom, and a win for America! The Arizona Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Christian artists Joanna Duka (a calligrapher) and Breanna Koski (a painter), overriding a lower court decision that had said they would have to follow a city ordinance mandating they design custom invitations for same-sex weddings if they were going to create them for marriages between a man and a woman.
“Breanna and Joanna had dreamed about having a wedding invitation shop since they were young girls, but they were not going to compromise their Christian beliefs. Breanna said, ‘We do serve everybody and love everybody but it’s just certain messages that we cannot promote in our business because of our faith.’ What should scare all of us is that the government is in many cases trying to force people to go against their beliefs.
“Thankfully the Arizona Supreme Court did the right thing. This win is important to every American and shows us, once again, the importance of who serves in our judicial system. We need many more conservative, strict constitutionalist judges, not judicial activists who want to further their own causes.” – Franklin Graham, on his Facebook page.
