The Kentucky Supreme Court just issued a major ruling and liberals are shocked. Other states and the U.S. Supreme Court should follow in Kentucky’s footsteps to settle this issue once and for all.
In a unanimous 6-0 ruling, the Kentucky Supreme Court ruled in favor of print shop owner Blaine Adamson. He has been fighting a legal battle since 2012 over whether he could refuse to print t-shirts for a gay pride festival.
Adamson did not want to violate his Christian beliefs and politely refused, even referring the festival’s promoters to another printer. However, the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization (GLSO) tried to destroy him instead.
The GLSO filed a complaint with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission. The matter finally reached the Kentucky Supreme Court, which ruled that the First Amendment protects Adamson’s conscience.
Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) worked hard on behalf of Adamson to obtain a favorable ruling. ADF is the most prominent legal defense group in the United States specializing in religious freedom.
In a news release, ADF’s Jim Campbell said that “this case never should have happened” and praised the decision. “The First Amendment protects Blaine’s right to continue serving all people while declining to print messages that violate his faith.”
