Washington State Florist Who Refused Service to Gay Couple Faces Possible Second Lawsuit
Yesterday, we reported on Arlene's Flowers in Washington State - the State's Attorney General had filed a lawsuit against the florist after she refused to provide flowers for a gay wedding. Now the couple themselves have also threatened to sue. Joe.My.God reports:

After five weeks of biting their tongues, a gay couple in Richland, Washington, is making a loaded offer to a florist who refused to sell them flowers based her biblical belief that "marriage is between a man and a woman." Robert Ingersoll and Curt Freed's lawyers, working with the legal powerhouse at the ACLU of Washington, sent a letter today to Arlene's Flowers owner Baronelle Stutzman saying she has two options: (1) She can vow to never again discriminate in her services for gay people, write an apology letter to be published in the Tri-City Herald, and contribute $5,000 to a local LGBT youth center, or (2) she can get sued for violating the Washington State Civil Rights Act.

Predictably the right is up-in-arms over the suits.
