Persecution Builds Against Christian T-Shirt Company

Another sign we as American Christians aren't immune from persecution. How long will it be before we face the same sort of persecution over here in America that our European brethren in Christ are facing?

03/30/2012 United States (ONN) - It appears the school district in Lexington Kentucky has decided to join forces with community homosexuals who are angry that a Christian company does not want to do business with them.

The homosexuals accused the company, Hands on Originals, of discrimination after the owners said they would not produce T-shirts for them to wear in the city's upcoming gay pride festival. Now, according to the Associated Press, the Lexington school district has temporarily halted purchases from the company and both the city and University of Kentucky are reconsidering whether to use the company in the future.

On Monday, the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization filed a discrimination complaint with the city's Human Rights Commission.

Hands On Originals co-owner Blaine Adamson issued a statement Monday, saying "it is the prerogative of the company to refuse any order that would endorse positions that conflict with the convictions of the ownership."

That prompted criticism from Lexington Mayor Jim Gray, who said, "People don't have patience for this sort of attitude today(Source)."
