Racial and Cultural Minorities

A newly engaged Indiana couple, Jane Doe and Sue Joe, got engaged about six months ago and both are very excited that they can finally get legally married just like a man and woman can. They are both excited to start begin their lives together as a married couple. They have made an appointment with a local florist that a friend recommended for their wedding flowers. They have been told that his particular florist is one of the best in town.

The couple walk hand in hand into the florist shop and they are greeted by the owner of the shop, John Doe. John Doe appears to be shocked that two females have walked into shop as he assumed that he had talked to the “bride to be” on the phone when the appointment was scheduled. John is not welcome to this surprise because he is a devout Christian and he is very much into his church and the readings of god. The bible makes it clear that marriage should be between a man and a woman. John Doe is completely against anyone other than a man and woman marrying one another and as soon as the Jane Doe and Sue Joe introduce themselves and inform him that they had an appointment with him today to order their wedding flowers, he promptly looks at them with a disgusted look on his face and informs them that he will be unable to provide them with services and asks them to leave his store immediately. Before the Religious Freedom Restoration Act was enacted, John Doe would have continued to provide them with services and it would have not likely been a good experience because of his personal beliefs. Now that this law has been enacted by Indiana Governor, Mike Pence, John has every right to refuse to serve this couple and it is just and legal.
