    You go to a photographer and tell him you are planning a wedding, he tellls you he does not do same sex weddings, so you sue him to force him to take your wedding photos.

    The Volokh Conspiracy » Wedding Photographer May Be Required (on Pain of Legal Liability) to Photograph Same-Sex Commitment Ceremonies

    This is why libertarians will win in the end, only an idiot who is too stupid to breathe would think it is a good idea to force people who don't want to be there to take pictures of their wedding.

    First, let me state I have no problem with same -sex whatever. None of my concern what twp others do.

    However, forcing someone to do the photography for a same-sex ceremony is ridiculous. photography is a form of expression, and forcing someone to create a work of expression that they do not agree with is an infringement on their rights.

    If I've said it once, I've said it a million times:

    Equal rights rarely end at equal. It's just a stepping stone for preferential rights.

    Human nature 101.

    It has never been in the interest of those who support gay marriage that it simply be accepted. The patron saints of this form of political correctness want to be able to force everyone to embrace and celebrate it.

    A sure sign of a weak argument if ever there was one.

    Tell me something honestly, if you went to a photographer and he didn't want to photograph you because you are gay would you sue him, or would you find a different photographer?
