ADF attorney equates KKK wedding's offense with that of gay marriage

by Jeremy Hooper

This comes from that reliable provider of jaw-descending quotes, WorldNetDaily. Subject is the Colorado civil unions bill:

You can’t compel speech,” [ADF's Kelly Fiedorek] said. “For example it would be unfair to ask an African-American photographer to shoot a wedding where the wedding party wore white robes of the KKK. He has the right to not use his artistic abilities as a photographer in a way that compromises his deeply held beliefs. The same standard applies to a person who believes marriage is between a man and woman.
[WND]

M/M, F/F, and KKK? Not sure whether to greet that deeply offensive equation with a "B.S." or an "F.U."

I would remind the Alliance Defense Fund that the KKK is actively and adamantly *AGAINST* same-sex marriage and has regularly protested against it. They might want to be careful about invoking a group whose marriage inequality goals are kindred, even if the spirit is different.
