RICHLAND -- The American Civil Liberties Union of Washington is representing two men who were denied flowers by a Richland florist opposed to gay marriage.
The ACLU wants the owner of Arlene's Flowers to apologize to Robert Ingersoll and Curt Freed in a letter to the Tri-City Herald.
The ACLU says the men have been a couple for almost nine years and plan a marriage in September. When they went to the flower shop on March 1, the owner told them she wouldn't provide flowers for the wedding because of a religious objection.
The Washington attorney general is suing the shop owner for discrimination. Her lawyer says she sells flowers to homosexuals, but can't support a same-sex marriage.
The ACLU wants Arlene's to agree to provide flowers for gay marriages.
