Supreme Court denies cert to Elane Photography

The Supreme Court declined the opportunity to rehear the New Mexican photographer case.  Shucks.  But some of the issues pertinent to this case may be addressed in the Hobby Lobby case.

From the National Review:

Sadly, the U.S. Supreme Court declined today to hear the Elane Photography case, which concerned a New Mexico photographer who declined to shoot a same-sex commitment ceremony because of her beliefs defining marriage as one man and one woman. But it is far from the end of the line for the central issues involved in this case.

    This shouldn’t even be an issue. In no way should anyone be forced to work for someone else. If HGTV can cancel the brothers TV show because the brothers believe in traditional marriage then it should be the right of a Photographer to refuse a job based on their beliefs.
    To put it in a different context..what if it were a black photographer being sued to attend and photograph a KKK wedding…and before anyone says the KKK and gay marriage aren’t the same that is not the point..the point is the government shouldn’t force someone to attend an event they find objectionable.
    You may not like some people feel that way about gay marriage, but it’s not your right to put a gun to their head and force them to agree with you.
    I think in the long run if LGBT groups keep targeting Christian business they will have a bigger back lash against them
