You say you want tolerance and despise hate, but if I don't agree with everything you say, you call it intolerance and hate. Explain to me again just how that works.
A photographer doesn’t have to photograph a same-sex ceremony if the ceremony violates the photographer’s religious beliefs. If same-sex couples want to hire a wedding photographer then they need to work on finding one that will agree to take on the job.
The government can’t force a photographer to accept jobs they don’t want to do. Photographers don’t have to take pictures of your same-sex ceremony if they choose not to. Photographers can turn you away at any time for any reason. If you don’t like that then find a different photographer.
Can you imagine being fined $7,000 because you don’t want to take pictures of a same-sex ceremony? Where is the tolerance for the photographer who has the right to run his business as he sees fit?
Is it now the Government’s job to dictate to every single photographer in the nation the type of ceremonies they will or won’t do? Do all photographers take wedding photographs? If they don’t, can the Government compel them to?
What about bakeries? Is the Government going to tell bakeries all over the country that they must bake cakes for same-sex ceremonies even if it goes against their religious beliefs? What about bakeries that don’t bake wedding cakes?
How far will Government go towards running our lives? Can you imagine having to pay a fine because you stood firm on your religious convictions?
Why are gay people seeking out Christian business owners? Out of all the bakeries listed in the yellow pages they couldn’t think to place a few phone calls to find a business that would be able to work with them?
