(Worthy News) – A Christian web designer in Colorado is appealing to the US Supreme Court after a 10th Circuit Court ruling that state anti-discrimination law requires her to create wedding websites for same-sex couples against her religious beliefs, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) reported. The case is the latest to address whether there is a First Amendment right to deny services to LGBTQ people or whether this amounts to discrimination.
Lorie Smith owns 303 Creative, a business that designs websites. In 2016, ADF filed suit against Colorado on Smith’s behalf, challenging a state law that would force her to create websites for events such as same-sex weddings, in violation of her beliefs. The law also prohibits Smith from explaining on her website that she only produces content that is consistent with her religious views.
