CANADA: Activists Protest Outside Home Of Florist Who Refused Gay Wedding

NOM bleats the following on their YouTube channel:
Homosexual activists have protested outside the home of a Christian florist in Canada because she will not provide flowers for a lesbian wedding. The protestors dropped flowers tied with rainbow-coloured ribbons on the front lawn of the florist's suburban home, and demanded that she be hauled before the courts. The intimidating protest was sparked when the lesbian couple's 'wedding planner' wrote about the Christian florist's stance on Twitter. Florist Kim Evans runs her business from her home in Moncton, New Brunswick. She previously told the lesbian couple by email: "As a born-again Christian, I must respect my conscience before God and have no part in this matter." Outside the florist's home, protestors spoke to news reporters, claiming they were 'spreading a message of tolerance'.
NOM is also outraged that "local authorities did nothing to stop the protest." While the New Brunswick Human Rights Act bans businesses from refusing customers on the basis of sexual orientation, no claim has yet been filed against the florist.
