All of which, I assume, is little comfort to the Huguenins, who now are compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives. Though the rule of law requires it, the result is sobering. It will no doubt leave a tangible mark on the Huguenins and others of similar views.
Reading the above quote one must ask, "Are we still in America?" This family only wished to obey Christian principles by not helping another human being sin. The Huguenins own a photography shop that routinely does weddings. They were asked by a lesbian couple to do their wedding, the Huguenins refused. The next thing they knew they were in court fighting for their right to obey Christian principles by refusing to help people sin. Earlier last week the New Mexico Supreme Court declared that the Huguenins were not protected under the First Amendment. According to the Court the Huguenins must choose between there livelyhood and their faith. They must choose between obeying God and obeying man. The Court has left no middle ground. Today Christianity is under attack. The Alliance Defending Freedom is looking into continuing the case.
Elane Photography's refusal to serve Vanessa Willock violated the New Mexico Human Rights Act, which prohibits a public accommodation from refusing to offer its services to a person based on that person's sexual orientation. Enforcing the NMHRA against Elane Photography does not violate the Free Speech or the Free Exercise clause of the First Amendment or the NMRFRA. For these reasons, we affirm the grant of summary judgment in Willock's favor.
No longer can Christians practice Christianity, without persecution, even in America. What has the world come to?
