like was already posted, if she has not done any, then using anyone else's she'd be violating other law. She does Heterosexual weddings. what's the deal? Don't gays shoot film?Once again a conservative starts a thread without facts and purports to grievance a cause which is not what the lawsuit is about.This case is a bit different than the others, because NY's law is far more invasive than the others being enforced in other States.
Christian wedding photographer sues NY over nondiscrimination law
Emilee Carpenter filed a lawsuit against New York attorney general Letitia James (D.) over state nondiscrimination statutes that Carpenter said compel her to violate her religious beliefs about traditional marriage by making her publicize photos of same-sex weddings on her website. The laws require her to create photograph collections on her website celebrating same-sex weddings because she celebrates opposite-sex weddings. Violating the laws could result in tens of thousands of dollars in fines, the state taking away her business license, or even jail time.
The statutes also forbid Carpenter from publishing any sort of editorial stance explaining her religious beliefs about marriage on her website. Carpenter said in an interview that her beliefs are inseparable from her work as a wedding photographer and that the laws are violating her First Amendment rights.
“My faith has been really integral to me as a person but also to my business and the way I operate it and the artwork I create,” Carpenter said. “My faith is really the lens through which I view my art.”
So not only does she have to photograph the weddings OR ELSE, she has to post pictures from said SSM ceremonies on her website OR ELSE, and cannot post anything about her religious beliefs on the matter OR ELSE.
Christian photographer sues for right to refuse gay customers because she doesn’t work with vampires
emilee carpenter doesn't shoot wedding photos of same sex couples nor has she been asked too. Hell, she doesn't do Halloween or vampire ones either. She wants to post on her website "No gays allowed" as per her chirstian beliefs.
She will lose this case in the same way you can't post "No Asian people allowed" for a public business.
She doesn't want to say "no gays allowed", she wants to say she thinks Same sex relations are against her religion, which they are.
She says the law forces her to post pictures of SSM weddings if she posts pictures of opposite sex weddings, and she says the law prevents her from stating her religious beliefs.
