(Bellevue, WA)  --  The Washington State Supreme Court is considering arguments heard in the case of a gay couple who sued a Tri-Cities florist for refusing on religious grounds to provide flowers for their wedding.  Rob Ingersoll and Curt Freed sued Richland florist Baronelle Stuztman, claiming she violated Washington's anti-discrimination and consumer-protection laws when she refused service for their 2013 wedding.  Stutzman's attorneys argued yesterday that a floral arrangement is a form of speech deserving of protection, while Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson contended that the state should not make an exception to its laws for religious reasons.
