KENTUCKY: Court Rules That Print Shop Can Refuse Gay Pride Messages

A rare win for Alliance Defending Freedom:

A Kentucky court ruled Monday that a Lexington printer is free to decline to print messages that conflict with his religious beliefs and that the government cannot force him to do otherwise. The Lexington-Fayette Urban Co unty Human Rights Commission ruled last year that Blaine Adamson of Hands On Originals must print messages that conflict with his faith on shirts that customers order from him. Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing Adamson appealed the ruling to the Fayette Circuit Court, which has now reversed the commission’s decision.  “The government can’t force citizens to surrender free-speech rights or religious freedom in order to run a small business, and this decision affirms that,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Jim Campbell, who argued before the court in Hands On Originals v. Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission. “The court rightly recognized that the law protects Blaine’s decision not to print shirts with messages that conflict with his beliefs, and that no sufficient reason exists for the government to coerce Blaine to act against his conscience in this way.”

I’ll update this post when local news covers the ruling.

Mariah Carey Spills the Tea on Her Heartbreak In Lyric Video for ‘Infinity’ – WATCH

Carey

In preparation for the release of her third compilation album next month, #1 to Infinity, Mariah Carey has released the lyric video for her new, nostalgia-tinged break-up anthem ‘Infinity’

Billboard writes:

The throwback-flavored track is a soaring break-up track, complete with sassy lines that shut down the guy she’s singing about. They are the kind of lyrics that might have speculate that the track is about her recent split from Nick Cannon. Or perhaps it’s just Carey returning to form as the queen of post-heartbreak empowerment.
