Same-Sex Marriage Trumps Religious Liberty in New Mexico

Full story: The Heritage Foundation

Earlier today, the Supreme Court of New Mexico ruled that the First Amendment does not protect a Christian photographer's ability to decline to take pictures of a same-sex commitment ceremony-even when doing so would violate the photographer's deeply held religious beliefs.

No one seems to have asked the central question: when did running a secular business become a form of religious expression?
It obviously hasn't.

It's simply an excuse to attempt to discriminate against a group they don't like.

Can it get more convoluted. An employee has won based on religious freedom. A ban on her wearing a hijab violates her civil and religious rights. Workplace discrimination. If it is not one thing, then it is another.

Sorry if this seems off-topic, but the issue is workplace and religious freedom....so....

Seems reasonable to me, and I oppose ALL religion. There was no undue hardship for A&F in accommodating her religious beliefs.

Now if her beliefs required her to wear a freshly slaughtered chicken on her head, that would have been a different story.

How is providing the primary service of a business to someone who holds different views in any way a violation of religious freedom?

Are you high? How is seeking equality under the law preaching intolerance?

Actually, allowing equality under the law for same sex couples in no way impacts upon the religious freedom of "serious practitioners of ANY actual faith." They do not, nor have they ever had the right to project their religious moral views onto others.

The Constitution is based o freedom and human rights for ALL, males and females. This is the United States of American where we live, where we enjoy our 'fought for' freedom. Women have the freedom to be able to be women and not belittled because we are not male. If that's the way she likes to live, she doesn't fit in with the rest of the USA resident. She lives her life in a way that does not RESPECT our way of living, our female independence. She has no democracy in her thinking She needs to return where she is just another being where females are not considered worthy of respect, where only males rule. We love our land, theUnited States of Americans. Don't like? Go where you're wishing to be.

Actual faith???

That's funny. Somehow I bet YOUR faith is an actual faith, eh? And you think we have no tolerance for you, eh? You are alive, aren't you.... and not incarcerated. You are free to spew your paranoia on the web. If we were intolerant, your simple ass would be, um.... gone.

Your post is filled with contradictions which lead me to believe you are either very young or you are very uneducated.

How about a pasta strainer for the person who says he belongs to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster? Lighten up.

There is no reason people should tolerate discrimination just because that discrimination is based on religion.

You overlook the glaring and well documented difference: We are not trying to use the law to harm you.

The Catholic church, Mormon church, and others, have been spending millions to use the law to deny to us the rights they expect for themselves. We are not trying to deny to religious groups the legal rights they deny to us.

Denial of legal equality, as promised in the founding documents and required by the constitution, is the key you refuse to see.

Now you state you have the right not to be offended. You want others to respect and give you the tolerance you don't give to others by asking them to stay in the closet? Sounds abusive. Why not just stand in the corner?

America is about NOT requiring others to "fit".

The ONLY ones who do not belong here are those that do not see and value this, and would deny it to others.
