Both Sides See High Stakes in Gay Rights Supreme Court Case
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is being warned about the potentially dire consequences of a case next week involving a Christian graphic artist who objects to designing wedding websites for same-sex couples.
Liberal groups say ruling for the designer will expose not only same-sex couples but also Black people, immigrants, Jews, Muslims and others to discrimination.
Conservative groups argue that ruling against her will force artists to do work that is against their faith.
Both sides have described for the court what lawyers sometimes call "a parade of horribles" that could result if the ruling doesn’t go their way.
The case marks the second time in five years that the Supreme Court has confronted a similar issue.
