Jul 30 - Web designer who refused to create gay couples' websites denied appeal
 

 
Colorado web designer has lost her challenge to Colorado's anti-discrimination law in a suit she filed against the state because she didn't want to design wedding websites for gay couples.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver on Monday rejected the appeal from business owner Lorie Smith of 303 Creative, according to court documents. Smith filed a pre-enforcement challenge to Coloradoís Anti-Discrimination Act (CADA), which restricts a business from refusing to provide services based on a customerís identity, in preparation to expand her business services to include wedding websites.

Smith argued that while she has clients of all gender identities, it's against her religion to promote same-s*x marriage, and therefore doesn't want to be forced to make them for gay couples, court documents state.


"I will not be able to create websites for same-s*x marriages or any other marriage that is not between one man and one woman," Smith said, according to the documents. "Doing that would compromise my Christian witness and tell a story about marriage that contradicts Godís true story of marriage."

A judge's ruling said that Smith's arguments do not supersede Colorado's anti-discrimination law, CNN notes.

Phillips appealed after being told by Colorado's Civil Rights Commission that he had to adhere to CADA, regardless of his religious views. The Supreme Court ultimately found in a 2018 decision that the state's enforcement of CADA was a violation of Philips's First Amendment rights.

In June, Philips was fined $500 for denying an order for a gender-transition cake on the grounds that he violated CADA.

Not in a state with anti-discrimination laws you can get sued for denying someone service for s*xual orientation, race, disability.etc

Somethings missing gotta read up on this.
Was she working for herself or a company?

If for herself I have no idea how she can be forced to make a website for anyone.

Doubt they can make a law that says private business has no control over who it chooses as patrons.

So what if she just said ďI donít want to do itĒ?

If she never mentioned all that extra sh*t and just denied service she would not have had a lawsuit?

She/He was too busy doubling down on her own beliefs trying to make a statement ....

The problem with people with supposedly strong beliefs is that they spend way too much time trying to double down on their feelings making meaningless points to the wrong people..

I donít agree with this viewÖ if the designer doesnít want to do it they shouldnít have to. Itís her business and choice to turn down money.

I donít agree with their view but end of the day if I try to give someone my business and they donít want it Iím not about to go to the courts.. Iím gonna take my business elsewhere.

As a business, you donít have the right to discriminate against your customers on the basis of race, s*x, s*xual orientation, etc.

Yíall think the 1st Amendment is some ďget out of jail freeĒ card to say whatever tf you want without consequence.

Yeah right, youíre just holding this stance because you happen to agree with the business owner in this particular case of discrimination.

Let your a*s walk into a place of business and get refused service on the basis of your skin color or who you choose to fu*k and watch how quick you stop downplaying discrimination.

If I had the choice not to pitch in on the roads leading to their store, the utilities they rely on, the emergency services that keep them and their business safe... if I could opt out of supporting them that'd be fair but I can't...
