A Maryland disc jockey has refused to work a gay man's birthday party, citing a conflict with his religious beliefs.

According to The Washington Post, when Dani Tsakounis attempted to hire Ultrasound Deejays to work an upcoming birthday party for her brother's 60-year-old roommate and former boyfriend, she was told that that would go against the owners' faith.

“I just said, 'We won't be able to do it, we're a Christian organization and it wold go against our faith. I'm sorry,” co-owner Michael Lampiris said.

Ultrasound Deejays' company policy states that “we will not be involved in any event involving homosexual celebration or activity. We follow biblical morality.”

Tom Tsakounis and his husband live with Tsakounis' former partner.

Tsakounis told the Post that he's filed a complaint with the Montgomery County Human Rights Commission.

Lampiris, who started the firm in the 1980s with his brother, said that he was unaware of Maryland's 2001 law banning discrimination based on sexual orientation in public accommodation.

“We don't want to go against the law,” he said, “but we also sometimes are called to do that if it goes against your faith. To me it would be like a synagogue having to cater to a neo-Nazi party or black DJ having to do a KKK dance.”

“We ought to obey God rather than men,” he added, citing the New Testament book of Acts.
