Alliance Defending Freedom asked students at the University of Wisconsin if they thought a dress designer should have the freedom not to design a dress for Melania Trump. They said “absolutely.”

But what did they have to say when asked specifically if a Christian photographer has the same freedom as, say, a fashion designer or a singer? SHARE this series of conversations that show this shouldn't be such a "sticky situation," but an easy call.
