A Christian printing company is facing a major setback after a Kentucky Human Rights Commission demanded that they print LGBT propaganda and go through extensive “diversity training.”
Via Daily Caller:
An administrative law judge has ruled that a Kentucky printer’s refusal to print gay pride T-shirts “constitutes unlawful discrimination,” and, by extension, that printers cannot refuse to print materials promoting ideas they disagree with.
Hands On Originals is a business that prints custom designs on clothes, accessories and other items like mugs and bottles. According to the ruling, Blaine Adamson, its managing owner, “instructed his sales representatives to decline to design, print, or produce orders whenever the requested material was perceived to promote an event or organization that conveys messages that are considered by the sales representative or Mr. Adamson to be inappropriate or inconsistent with Christian beliefs.
As bad as it is to be forced to print a message that goes against ones religious beliefs, that’s not the worst part:
Not only did the judge rule that Adamson’s actions constituted unlawful discrimination in violation of the Fairness Ordinance, he also ordered him “to participate in diversity training to be conducted by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission within twelve months of the issuance of this order.”What do you think about this new development?
