A Kentucky Supreme Court justice has set a hearing to review a lower court’s decision that a business owner has the right to refuse to promote “gay” pride events.
The Courier-Journal reported Chief Justice John D. Minton Jr. approved a review of the case brought by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission against the Lexington-based company Hands-On Originals, which specializes in prints on T-shirts.
WND reported the commission accused owner Blaine Adamson of violating a local “fairness” ordinance by refusing to print a message promoting homosexual activism.
But lower courts ruled that while Adamson was required to serve any customer, he was not required to promote any message.
The core argument also is before the U.S. Supreme Court next week in the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips, who was ordered by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission to undergo reindoctrination for refusing to promote a same-sex “wedding” with his artistry.
