In response to expertmike's comment:
Wrong. Both sides are protected under the constitution. It's a stalemate. You are asking someone to give up their rights as protected by the 1st amendment to serve someone that he believes lifestyle is against his religious beliefs. It's not as cut and dry as you make out. One side doesn't trump the other. Both are equally protected under the law.
why should one side give up their protected rights To appease the other?
Sorry, PatsLifer, unhappily you're wrong. Both sides are not equally protected under the constitution. Some are more equal than others...
The New Mexico court ruled....
“The reality is that because [Elane Photography] is a public accommodation, its provision of services can be regulated, even though those services include artistic and creative work,” the court stated."
Religious liberty provisions also provided no defense for the photography company, according to the New Mexico Supreme Court.
