Barronelle Stutzman, the Washington state florist who refused to serve a gay couple, says she turned down a state settlement in a discrimination case because there is no price on freedom.

On February 18, Benton County Superior Court Judge Alex Ekstrom ruled that Stuzman had violated the state's Consumer Protection Act when she refused to provide flowers for a gay couple's wedding. She said that providing the service would be a violation of her faith.

Ekstrom disagreed, saying in his ruling that the Supreme Court “has held that laws may prohibit religiously motivated action, as opposed to belief.”

Stutzman turned down a deal offered by Washington's attorney general, which involved a promise to serve all customers regardless of sexual orientation, a $2,000 penalty and $1 for court costs.

During a Fox News The Kelly File appearance, Stutzman explained why she decided to appeal the ruling.

“There's not a price on freedom. You can't buy my freedom. It's me now, but tomorrow it's gonna be you. You gotta wake up,” she said.

The state is “talking about bullying me into doing something that is against my faith. They can't do that. They can get rid of me, but they can't get rid of God,” she added.
