This iReport is part of an assignment:
Same-sex marriage: Civil right vs. states' rights
New Mexico Court of Appeals: Gay Rights Trump Religious Freedom
"The New Mexico Court of Appeals upheld a ruling by the state’s Civil Rights Commission that a Christian photographer who refused to take pictures of a gay couple’s commitment ceremony violated the state’s discrimination law."
Should private businesses be compelled to offer services to customers that may be in conflict with their religious beliefs?
Are there no other professional photographers in the area that were willing to photograph the ceremony?
