A devout Christian Wedding photographer was asked to do a same-sex wedding for a lesbian couple. Via e-mail she told one of the lesbians who contacted her that she didn't do same sex weddings.
The lesbian's partner later called the photog and asked if she could shoot her wedding not revealing she was to marry the same woman who contacted her by e-mail. The photographer agreed to shoot a "normal" wedding for the "bride".
The day of the wedding the photographer shows up and refuses to shoot the wedding. The couple sues for discrimination and the courts side with the couple. The photographer argued that she had religious and artistic freedom of expression but the courts said it's against the law for her business to discriminate based on sexual orientation.
I don't have a problem with being asked to do a same-sex wedding. Money's money. It makes no difference to me as long as I'm paid. Or if I personally know the couple then I'd probably do it for free.
However I also see the Christian photographer's view point. I wouldn't want to be "persecuted" for my religious beliefs and be forced to do something I didn't think was morally right.
What do you think?
