Yet Another Reason Why America is Unraveling (Part 791)

Posted by redsatellite on April 16, 2008

Back in the day (and that might just be yesterday), businesses could refuse to provide services to customers for a variety of reasons. For example, the often displayed: No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service. A prominent message seen everywhere.

Well apparently, religious beliefs are not a good enough reason to refuse service.

The New Mexico Human Rights Commission ruled on Wednesday that an evangelical Christian photographer discriminated against a lesbian couple by refusing a job to photograph the couple’s same-sex commitment ceremony.

The commission ordered Elaine and Jon Huenins, owners of Elane Photography in Albuquerque, N.M., to pay the lesbian couple $6,600 in attorney fees.”It is just a stunning disregard for the First Amendment,” said Jordan Lorence, a senior legal counsel for the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Alliance Defense Fund, which is representing the photographer couple in court.

This is the insanity of living in America these days. They have FORCED this Christian couple to pony up $6,600 dollars for not photographing them. Hmmm….I can’t wait to see what happens when I go into a restaurant in San Francisco next time-not wearing shoes or a shirt.

I hope it’s a Lesbian owned establishment.
