NM Supreme Court: Christian Photographers Can't Refuse Gay Weddings
[link to www.christianpost.com]

In New Mexico, professional photographers may not refuse to work at gay weddings, that state's Supreme Court decided Thursday.

When Elane Photography refused to work for Vanessa Willock at her same-sex wedding, the Court said, it violated the New Mexico Human Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination in public accommodations based upon sexual orientation.

"First, we conclude that a commercial photography business that offers its services to the public, thereby increasing its visibility to potential clients, is subject to the antidiscrimination provisions of the NMHRA and must serve same-sex couples on the same basis that it serves opposite-sex couples," Justice Edward Chavez wrote for the majority.

Chavez also wrote that refusing to work at a same-sex wedding is equivalent to refusing to work at a mixed-race wedding: "Therefore, when Elane Photography refused to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony, it violated the NMHRA in the same way as if it had refused to photograph a wedding between people of different races."

Sure they can refuse gay weddings. If they have a little courage and some principles.

GLP can't refuse service based off IP address. Since IP addresses can be based on physical location like an ethnic neighborhood. Per this court ruleing.

Its a private business, they can pick and choose who they work for regardless of why.
This Judge is some kind of Leftist political shill.
This is like saying you can't kick a drunk out of a bar because its open to the public because you are discriminating against the drunk because he is drunk.

Sure they can...

Smile and agree to everything and then two days before the great event, come down with the flu! Nothing like a bout of gastroenteritis (backed up by a visit to a walk-in clinic) to get a guy/gal off the hook.

No one should be forced to do what they really do not want to do, especially if it is against their conscience!

They could choose not to work for someone just because they don't like them.
This is not discrimination, this is the idea of private business, just because its open to the public doesn't mean they have to do work and accept work from anyone who asks.
This Judge is a ludicrous idiot, this is not about employment.

I would like to see the wedding albums of a gay couple who forced a homophobic photographer to shoot their wedding. Can you legislate NOT lighting the wedding party to highlight double chins and thinning hair?

If I am a roofer and a drug pusher wants me to put a new
roof on his crack house, I'll refuse his business.

If I am a landlord and a couple of sexual perverts want
to rent an apartment from me, I'll refuse to do so.

People can form contracts with whomever they please
and refuse to enter into contracts with whomever they
please for any reason whatsoever.

When it comes to religious beliefs there is
NO QUESTION AT ALL.
This individual will win his case on appeal based on the
First Amendment.

I'd do the shoot then take pictures that make everyone look sick and disgusting. Like when they're in mid sentence and their eyes are rolled.
