A Washington florist is being sued by the state's attorney general for refusing to provide flowers for a gay wedding.

Barronelle Stutzman owns Arlene's Flowers in Richland, Wash.

She objected to selling a gay customer flowers for his same-sex wedding because of her Christian faith.

Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson filed a consumer protection suit against Stutzman.

He says Stutzman discriminated against the customer based on his sexual orientation.

Attorney Justin Bristol, who represents Stutzman, says the case is abut freedom of speech and freedom of religion, not discrimination.
