Owen Strachan: A Big Win for First Amendment Freedom

“The rights of free speech and free exercise… are not limited to soft murmurings behind the doors of a person’s home or church…

These guarantees protect the right of every American to express their beliefs in public. This includes the right to create and sell words, paintings, and art that express a person’s sincere religious beliefs.”

So said the majority of the Arizona Supreme Court earlier this week.

With this win, artistic printers Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski of Phoenix were freed up to conduct their business according to their deeply held convictions.

SOGI policies we’ve seen elsewhere were turned on these two who had—respectfully—opted not to create wedding invitations for same-sex weddings.

Attorneys with Alliance Defending Freedom stepped in—and religious liberty prevailed.

This is a big win for First Amendment freedom.

We should never have to murmur our convictions.

We should never be compelled to express views at odds with those convictions.
