Oh! Okay! Now I get it!

You don't send me flowers...
America's largest group of atheists and agnostics, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), announced on Tuesday that it has filed a lawsuit against a Rhode Island florist for refusing to deliver its order of a dozen red roses to self-professed teen atheist, Jessica Ahlquist, whose complaint was behind the removal of a 50-year-old prayer mural at her high school.
FFRF's complaint, filed Jan. 25, alleges that Marina Plowman, owner-operator of Twins Florist in Cranston, R.I., denied the group "full and equal access to public accommodations by refusing to fulfill a flower order on the basis of religion (non-belief), in violation of Rhode Island General Laws."

"This is outright discrimination. It was ugly and it is a violation of the Civil Rights Act," said Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-founder of the FFRF, in an interview with The Christian Post on Wednesday. "This is very fundamental to civil liberties in this country. All we are asking for is the delivery of our flowers." - Read more here.

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you ...
