The florist needs to review the 1964 Civil Rights Act which mandated:
"giving all Americans the right to be served in facilities which are open to the public—hotels, restaurants, theaters, retail stores, and similar establishments".....JFK

Someone is sure to trot out the old "we reserve the right" to not serve customers and with this I agree, if the customer is disruptive or hostile or scary to the staff. This was not the case. The woman ADMITS to even giving the guy a hug, so her refusal was simply her own prejudice and discrimination.
And she admits to having gay employees...REALLY..gay florists? Who'd a thunk it? If one of them gets married what will she do? NOT allow him to make his own bouquets?
What exactly went wrong for her that day?

That's almost as gay as being a hairdresser, and they want to not served gays?
