Jacksonville Catholic bookstore now free to speak, operate consistent with beliefs
September 08, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: Following a federal court ruling, the City of Jacksonville has exempted a Catholic bookstore from a law that “would have required the bookstore to use pronouns of customers contrary to their sex and would have stopped the bookstore from explaining its beliefs about gender identity on its website,” according to the store’s counsel.
“Jacksonville’s law threatened her with costly investigations, fines, and damages if she used her store’s website to communicate Catholic beliefs about gender identity and human sexuality,” said Hal Frampton. “Thankfully, the city has now agreed that Queen of Angels is a religious organization free to operate according to its faith.”
