Federal appeals court rules against web designer who objects to creating same-sex marriage sites
July 28, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: “A Colorado law forces web designer Lorie Smith and her studio, 303 Creative, to design and publish websites promoting messages that violate her religious beliefs,” stated her legal counsel, Alliance Defending Freedom. “The law at issue also gags Smith from even explaining on her company’s website what websites she can create consistent with her religious beliefs.”
Colorado’s Anti-Discrimination Act “permissibly compels [Smith’s] speech,” the 10th Circuit ruled. “A faith that enriches society in one way might also damage society in other ways, particularly when that faith would exclude others from unique goods or services.”
