Arson threat to US florist over marriage stance

From The Christian Institute

A Christian florist in America has received a threat to burn down her shop because she does not agree with gay marriage.

Barronelle Stuzman, who owns a flower shop in Richland in the US state of Washington, has also been hit with hate mail.

The hatred was sparked when she declined to provide flowers for a long-standing customer’s gay wedding.

She took Robert Ingersoll, who she has known for nine years, by the hand and said: “I’m sorry I can’t do your wedding because of my relationship with Jesus Christ.”

Mr Ingersoll wrote about the incident on his Facebook page, and it went viral across the internet.

Mrs Stutzman has since received a torrent of abuse, including a threat to burn her building.
