  • Web Designer in SCOTUS case getting death threats


    Source: https://www.foxnews.com/media/colorado-web-designer-terrified-receiving-death-threats-supreme-court-free-speech-case

    303 Creative LLC owner Lorie Smith could find victory in the Supreme Court regarding her freedom of speech, but the private battle doesn't end there — in fact, she said it's been ongoing for six years.

    Between threats of harm and having her website repeatedly hacked, Smith told Fox News Digital, life at times has left her "terrified" since filing her initial complaint in 2016. She refuses to create websites for same-sex weddings, which is what's put her business at odds with the state of Colorado.

    "I’ve had my home address put on social media, I have received many threats — death threats, threats of bodily harm," she said. "The security system on my home, my child’s school has been on alert. I’ve lost business, my clients have been harassed and my website… people attempt to hack into it, almost regularly by the hour. I’m not sure what will come after Monday, but if history is any foreshadowing of what’s to come, it’s possible some of those things could continue if not amplify."

    Apparently Jack Chick was into something....

    Edit: The FBI isn't going to do anything about the threats just like there's been nothing done about pregnancy bombings.

        I predict, if any of the standard liberals respond at all, they'll use 1 sentence to (maybe) condemn it, then 15 to tell us how/why the GOP/conservatives are worse.

              Definitely not right. And she should be afforded the same protection as anyone under that sort of hate attack. In fact, when the LGBTQ+ goes on the offense in this way, they simply become hypocrites, and they just increase the likelyhood people that Haye them will respond even more violently.

              Hate begets hate. Violence begets viokence.

              The case itself is a really sticky mess. It's a very special case. If I'm in the business of creating a message, or providing a mechanism for carrying messages, should I be required to convey a message that is morally repugnant.

              1) I have the right to free exercise of religion. So i cant be made to say what goes against my faith, or help others say what goes against my faith
              2) my business should serve all peoples regardless of who they are
              3) my business is providing media services to help others communicate their message

              1 and 2 will be forever in conflict anytime I disagree with the message I am to help them communicate.

              Suppose I am a singer. And I am in the business of singing, so people can hire me to sing. Am I not allowed to turn down singing offers to sing music whose message ( or artistry) I do not agree with?
              Don’t waste your time with explanations, people only hear what they want to hear.
