CNN interviewed a florist in Georgia who doesn’t think she should be forced to provide flowers for a same-sex wedding because it’s against her religion, but she revealed her hypocrisy by saying she would not refuse to provide flowers for those who commit other “sins” that her religion identifies:
At least one florist in Jeff Davis County, Georgia admitted to a double standard regarding providing service to “sinners” in a CNN interview regarding “religious freedom” laws.
“In the Ten Commandments, it says you can’t commit adultery,” reporter Gary Tuchman said to the florist, Melissa Jeffcoat, adding, “It says you need to honor your father and mother.”
When he asked whether she would provide flowers for an adulterer or someone who had “dishonored” their parents, she replied affirmatively.
“Well, why would you serve them but not serve someone who is gay?” Tuchman asked.
“It’s just a different kind of sin to me,” Jeffcoat replied. “I just don’t believe in it.”
