USA, New Mexico: Photographer Who Refused to Work With Gay Couple Appeals to US Supreme Court

Written by scott on September 14th, 2013

US Supreme CourtThat photographer in New Mexico who refused to photograph a gay wedding is asking the US Supreme Court to hear her case.

Joe.My.God reports:

An Albuquerque couple who operate their commercial photography business on Christian religious principles will ask the Supreme Court to give them constitutional protection for their views favoring traditional marriage, their lawyers said on Wednesday. The case, if accepted by the Court, would give the Justices a chance to sort out how gay rights laws passed by states are enforced against those who hold the view that marriage is only for a man and a woman. Although the case does not involve state authority to allow or deny same-sex marriage, it could be the first new case related to that issue to reach the Court since its first foray into that constitutional controversy last Term. The case, from the New Mexico Supreme Court, is Elane Photography v. Willock.

She’s been rebuffed at every level so far. It ill be interesting to see if the Court even takes the case.

    Wouldn’t “Christian religious principles” have these photographers LOVE ONE ANOTHER!

    The photographer is obviously trying to protect the Sanctity of Bigotry.

    SCOTUS will never take this case.
