The Freedom to Choose Not to Photograph Same-Sex Weddings?

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

Tom Messner at Heritage has a good, concise overview of the case of New Mexico photographers who found themselves in court after opting out of taking on a same-sex commitment ceremony as a job. The New Mexico supreme court ruled against them and they are now seeking Supreme Court review. For as much as people use the words tolerance and non-discrimination surrounding issues involving redefining marriage, this sure isn’t tolerance and non-discrimination. And it will only get worse if we look away from it. Doing what Jonathan and Elaine Huguenin are doing isn’t popular, but anyone who values free speech should be grateful, as Messner points out.
