The members of the Washington State Legislature’s LGBTQ caucus jointly released the following statement on the state Supreme Court’s decision in Ingersoll v. Arlene’s Flowers:

“This morning, our state’s highest court unanimously confirmed discrimination is always wrong. While Washington’s constitution provides strong religious freedom protections, it doesn’t permit one’s religious beliefs to violate our anti-discrimination laws. A business providing goods and services to the public doesn’t get to discriminate against some people under the guise of religious freedom. This is a victory for equality and tolerance in the state of Washington.”
