Christian wedding photographer sues NY over nondiscrimination law – HotAir

When Emilee Carpenter opened her wedding photography business in a small hamlet in upstate New York, she probably never expected to wind up being at the center of a lawsuit that would be drawing national attention and controversy. And yet that’s precisely what has happened. Ms. Carpenter is running afoul of recent anti-discrimination laws that were passed in the Empire State, specifically relating to how businesses are allowed to advertise their services when members of the LGBT community might be involved. The state insists that Carpenter’s website must feature pictures celebrating same-sex marriages since she includes photos from traditional marriages. The problem is that Carpenter is a Christian who opposes such unions and argues that the state is attempting to control her protected speech. This led her to bring a lawsuit against state Attorney General Letitia James, challenging the state’s ability to enforce the law. (Free Beacon)

This tiresome persecution of Christians is utterly objectionable. If it's a logical consequence of anti-discrimination laws then bin the laws.

Freedom includes the freedom to believe in the sky fairy. Letitia James can just sod off.
