A soft tyranny is still a tyranny — and if this isn’t tyranny, what else do you call it?
The state Court of Appeals has upheld a ruling that a professional photographer who refused to take pictures of a gay couple’s commitment ceremony violated New Mexico’s discrimination law. …
The New Mexico Human Rights Commission ruled in 2008 that Elane Photography violated the state Human Rights Act by discriminating against Vanessa Willock on the basis of sexual orientation. …
The photography studio says its refusal was not an act of discrimination, but a reflection of the owners’ religious and moral beliefs.
No doubt the courts would inflict the same ruling if the owner were black and refused to photograph a KKK cross burning. Just kidding.
The ruling confirms five facts familiar to countermoonbats:
1. We have lost the fundamental right of freedom of association.
2. The businesses we run are not ours, but the government’s; therefore, the government determines how we operate them.
3. Our rulers hold Christian religious convictions in contempt.
4. All the animals on the farm are equal, but perverts are much more equal.
5. If we don’t start fighting back more effectively, our society is lost.
