The state may decide wether photographers may dismiss gay weddings
7 years ago in 2007, a photography company refused to shoot at a lesbian wedding in Albuquerque, New Mexico. When Vanessa Willock wanted a photographer to shoot at her lesbian wedding, the company refused saying that they only shooted at traditional weddings. When she saw the reply, Willock went to the New Mexico Human Rights Commission to complain against the photographer. This case is a clash between the rights of free speech and equal protection. In my opinion, no one has to be forced to provide his services to someone he does not want. If the photographer does not agree with homosexual weddings, he has the right to simply not provide the services. Anyway, the company is the one who loses the costumer.
