OK, all you SD Libertarian-types, what's this?

A news report from New Mexico indicates that the state is fining (yes, using its coercive, intrusive power) photographers for declining to do a same-sex ceremony.

Now, you Libertarians are always lecturing us on "keep the government out of the bedroom" and basically siding with the LGBT on the legislative front.

But where are you when peoples' "privacy and autonomy" comes out of the bedroom and is foisted on a private enterprise by the state?

You got some 'splainin' to do.

A true Libertarian will be offended by this and will speak against it. Many libertarians today are motivated not by the principle of self-interest, but by egoism. If they are not affected personally, they don't speak up.

As a former wedding photographer I have declined work because it would have been difficult to produce an estically pleasing result, to be PC. But to sue me because you're gay or ugly, that is becoming a stretch and to actually get a judge to agree, wow!
