A Christian bridal shop in Pennsylvania has closed after feeling threatened by the LGBT community because they declined to provide a wedding dress for a lesbian wedding.
The Christian Post reports that the owners of W. W. Bridal Boutique in Bloomsburg were asked to provide a wedding dress for Julie Ann Samanas who was marrying her fiance, Shannon Kennedy.
The business owners told the couple that “our faith doesn’t let us believe in [same-sex weddings].”
The lesbian couple posted about their experience at the bridal shop in a Facebook post in which they tagged the bridal shop. W. W. Bridal Boutique responded to the criticism in a Facebook post of their own which has reportedly since been deleted.
"The owners of W.W. Bridal Boutique reserve the rights afforded to them by the First Amendment of the Constitution to live out our lives according to our faith," the W.W. Bridal post was quoted as stating. "We will continue to serve our customers based on the tenets of our faith."
