Chamber of Commerce Backs Lesbians After Christian Videographer Declines to Shoot CeremonyYet another story has surfaced dealing with persecution of Believers who have taken a stance for their convictions. The latest according to the Christian Post is a report of two lesbian women in Ohio have filed a complaint with their local Chamber of Commerce after a Christian videographer declined to record their commitment ceremony, and now the chamber is vowing to revise its policies to prohibit members from turning down orders related to homosexuality. Jenn Moffitt and Jerra Kincely sent an email to the business Next Door Stories last month out of their search to find a videographer to record their commitment ceremony. But as owner Courtney Schmackers is a Christian, she politely advised the women that she could not accommodate their request. “Unfortunately at this time I do not offer services for same-sex weddings,” she replied, “but thank you for your inquiry!” Same-sex “marriage” is not legal in Ohio, and there are no local prohibitions against declining a particular business order for conscience reasons.  “I couldn’t believe it,” Moffitt told CNN in regard to Schmackers’ response. “It is a small business, and I thought this was a tight knit community. We wanted to support local commerce and to get that kind of response was astounding.” Therefore, Moffitt and Kincely contacted the Bexley Area Chamber of Commerce to lodge a complaint. The Chamber now states that as a result, it is in the process of re-writing its policies to prohibit members “from discriminating on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, gender, gender expression, age, ancestry, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or military status.” FULL REPORT
