Our freedoms have been taken away as government becomes the ruler of our lives.

The fate of a New Mexico photographer who was invited to help a lesbian duo “celebrate” a “commitment ceremony” in a state that did not recognize same-sex marriage remains pending at the U.S. Supreme Court, which is expected to act on the request for a review as early as this week.
The case is one of several in which small-business owners have been forced to sanction homosexual relationships in violation of religious beliefs, including in Colorado and Washington.
The Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing Elane Photography owners Jonathan and Elaine Huguenin in the New Mexico case, said the fact that the justices took no action today means that, under the Supreme Court’s rules, they are actively considering the case.
The court likely will consider the case again Friday, said Jordan Lorence, an ADF senior counsel.
“We hope that the justices will take the case and rule that the government cannot force people to express ideas they do not support,” he said.
