Liberating the Shirt

     Previously, a Kangaroo Court had convicted a T-Shirt maker of H8 for daring to not celebrate the idea of homosexuality.  Surprisingly and shockingly enough, an appeals court has ruled against Bullying and for Free Speech!

“Aaron Baker, on behalf of the GLSO, filed a complaint with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission, arguing this violated the county’s ‘Fairness Ordinance.’ That Ordinance bars — among other things — discrimination against individuals in public accommodations based on sexual orientation (defined to mean ‘an individual’s actual or imputed heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality’) or gender identity. Hands on Originals acknowledged that it was a ‘public accommodation’ covered by the Ordinance.

“The Commission decided in favor of Baker, but on Monday, in Hands on Originals, Inc. v. Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission, a Kentucky trial court judge disagreed.”

     Perhaps this is fleeting, or perhaps freedom still has a chance…

Here is the full decision:
