In his latest Blog Essay, “‘It is the Price of Citizenship’?—An Elegy for Religious Liberty in America,” Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr. discusses the recent decision by the New Mexico Supreme Court that commercial wedding photographers must provide services to same-sex couples.
Is a photography session an expression of speech and religious belief? Does a Christian photographer have the religious liberty to refuse wedding services to a same-sex couple? What happens when same-sex marriage runs into the belief that to help celebrate it is to disobey God?
Dr. Mohler dissects the New Mexico Supreme Court’s answers and explains why they amount to “a denial of religious liberty and the constitutional guarantees of religious expression and free speech.” You can read Dr. Mohler’s full essay here.
