Arizona Calligraphy Businesswomen Under Fire For Christian Beliefs

Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, owners of an upscale stationery company in Arizona, are facing possible jail time for refusing to design wedding invitations for a same-sex marriage, something their Christian beliefs simply do not support. The two friends met in a Bible study and quickly realized their desire to pursue similar interests, leading them to open Brush & Nib Studio.

The attorney representing Duka and Koski, Jonathan Scruggs of Alliance Defending Freedom, describes how his clients are willing to serve others, but they refuse to promote a message that “demeans others, promotes racism or objectifies the female body.” On top of these ideas, they do not design artwork that goes against their faith and beliefs on traditional marriage. Phoenix, Arizona, however, seems bound and determined to force the two women to either conform to the liberal agenda or fold their business, or else face a jail sentence.

An Arizona-based coalition of businesses supporting efforts to advance liberal LGBT policy within the state, ONE Community, is supported by several major corporations including Bank of America, Coca-Cola, and Uber.
