Two New York state women who were denied their dream wedding site because they are gay have filed a discrimination complaint that could set a precedent for whether businesses can choose their clientele.
The complaint with the state Division of Human Rights appears to be a first involving a wedding venue since same-sex marriage became legal in New York in July 2011, according to advocates on both sides of the issue. One prominent gay marriage opponent said the case could test the breadth of the law's religious freedom language.

Gays successfully sued a Christian photographer who refused to do their “wedding.”
The obnoxious homosexuals are starting to become a real pain in the @$$. I knew this was going to happen once the state run “media” convinced the gullible public to put the homosexuals up on pedestals.
Maybe Christians should start doing this
remember freedom of association?
The worst part of all this could be that the Miss Universe pageant could be forced to enter both of them.
How 19th Century!
They aren’t even doing it to shore up their own marriages. In Texas some lesbians got married in another state and sought a divorce in Texas where their marriage wasn’t even recognized (no divorce necessary). They got a liberal activist judge to “grant them a divorce” and the case has been winding its way through upper courts.
Yet the Lavender Mafia’s pinklisting of those businesses and persons who may have “opposed” homosexuality is considered fair, safe, and legal. That ain’t kosher or EQUAL.
Once homosexuals force this through the courts and achieve mandated recognition from state to state, gun owners can follow the template and require their carry permits from Arizona be recognized in New York and California.
So their “dream wedding site” is this family owned farm?? This particular farm, owned by someone else?;
The little cowards always use the courts.
This sign is a fundamental expression of individual freedom, which is the only meaningful form of freedom. The far left fringe's demand is a fundamental expression of slavery. If we can be compelled to obey the commands of others against our will, America is no longer free. At that point, as Thomas Jefferson said, "the tree of liberty must be refreshed".
Thankfully, that case is being appealed. They'll probably win it at the state supreme court level.
They also mean nothing to Christians of conscience, as far as having any meaningful teeth legally.
An orthodox Jew protesting the campaign to counterfeit marriage in New York has the most accurate sign, "The road to Hell is paved with religious exemptions."
This law was written specifically to render the "religious exemption" amendments non-severable. So, if one exemption is found "unconstitutional" by a Leftist court, they all fall.
Starting? For people paying attention, they've been that for at least a decade.
Art II, Sec. 11. [Freedom of religion.]
