The New Mexico Supreme Court has ruled against the rights of Christians today:
The New Mexico Supreme Court ruled Thursday that two Christian photographers who declined to photograph a same-sex union violated the state’s Human Rights Act…In 2006 Vanessa Willock asked Elaine and Jonathan Huguenin, owners of Elane Photography, to photograph a same-sex “commitment ceremony” in the town of Taos.
Huguenin and her husband declined the job because their Christian beliefs were in conflict with the message communicated by the ceremony… [Judge] Bosson said the Christian photographers are now “compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives.”
Again we ask; what about the 1st amendment? We as citizens, and as humans are entitled to our own religious beliefs, and the freedom to practice said beliefs; these photographers as part of their Christian faith do not believe in providing their services to homosexuals because they practice a life style that the Bible expressly forbids. And now the Court has the nerve to tell these Christians that they have to compromise on their Religious beliefs? The Supreme Court of New Mexico has committed a serious 1st amendment violation against Elaine and Jonathan Huguenin, something that should not go unpunished. This case must be appealed and overturned, for if its not, precedent will have been set so that the rights of Christians all across the country can now be violated. Fight this ruling, restore the Constitution.
