And Andy Craig’s tweets on the distinction between guaranteeing marriage equality and the overly broad application of sexual-orientation nondiscrimination laws to prosecute small business owners who, based on adherence to traditional religious beliefs, choose not to provide expressive services celebrating same-sex marriages.
Going all the way back to Obergefell and before, there’s been a concerted effort to conflate two totally distinct and independent things: civil marriage for same-sex couples and anti-discrimination laws covering sexual orientation.— Andy Craig (@AndrewRCraig) November 17, 2022
Another view:. Even if you don’t think creating a wedding cake for a gay marriage is protected free speech (as I do, as expressive messaging), the case is stronger when it comes to website design.
I agree with Brad Polumbo but the difference is the state of Colorado would not prosecute the LGBTQ business owners.
I support a website designer’s legal right to refuse to design a gay wedding site, and I support this restaurant’s right to refuse to host an antigay organization https://t.co/Mh7CZAHMNG— David Boaz (@David_Boaz) December 6, 2022
