Facilitate Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ or Else: Legal Group Warns Christian Businesses Face ‘Real Threat’ | Christian News Network

By: Heather Clark

A prominent Christian legal organization representing a New Mexico photographer that was was recently forced by the state Supreme Court to ‘compromise … to accommodate’ requests to shoot homosexual dedication ceremonies is warning that similar cases are presenting a “real threat” to Christians across the country.

As previously reported, Elane Huguenin and her husband Jon, who operate run Elane Photography in Albuquerque, found themselves having to answer to the New Mexico Human Rights Commission in 2006 when they turned down a lesbian who wanted Elane to photograph her upcoming ceremony with her partner.

The Commission ruled against Huguenin in 2008, stating that she was guilty of violating the state’s “sexual orientation” discrimination law, which prohibits “any person in a public accommodation to make a distinction, directly or indirectly, in offering or refusing to offer its services … to any person because of … sexual orientation.” The Commission then ordered the photographer to pay nearly $7,000 in fines for refusing to shoot the ceremony.
