A bridal store owner has claimed “God's
law” in refusing to sell wedding gowns to a lesbian couple.
According to the Press
Enterprise of Bloomsburg, Victoria Miller of W.W. Bridal
Boutique on Market Street in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania refused to
schedule an appointment for two brides.
“[P]roviding those two girls dresses
for a sanctified marriage would break God's law,” Miller told the
Pennsylvania became the 19th
state, in addition to the District of Columbia, to allow gay couples
to marry when Republican Governor Tom Corbett decided against
appealing a federal judge's ruling striking down the state's marriage
ban in May.
City leaders said they plan to discuss
the incident at a meeting on Monday. The Bloomsburg Town Council
will consider whether to move ahead with an ordinance which would ban
businesses from discriminating based on sexual orientation.
Al Luschas, Miller's attorney, said
serving gay couples would violate his client's “firmly and
honestly held religious beliefs.”
