I had not realized how stupidly bigoted the people of Cranston, Rhode Island were becoming. After losing a fight against the Constitution, being slapped down for demanding the right to maintain a blatantly sectarian, religious prayer in a public school, they’ve been threatening and persecuting Jessica Ahlquist, the atheist who was brave enough to bring the law to bear on the promotion of religious views in a school.
Now a new development: the Freedom From Religion Foundation wanted to send flowers to Ahlquist: none of the florists in Cranston would do it. They had to find a florist in a more distant town to do the deed.
It’s all shockingly petty and discriminatory.
Here’s the list of cowards and bigots, four florists who would not deliver a bouquet to a teenage girl because she’s an atheist.
If you want to contact them and express your displeasure, please remember to be civil.
