Whatever Happened to Freedom of Conscience?

In a story that seems almost too outlandish to believe, CNS is reporting that a Christian photographer in New Mexico was fined for declining to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony.

The "New Mexico Human Rights Commission" is the entity behind this solomonic decision.  Welcome to the brave new world of "human rights" in the United States -- is the commission likewise going to force atheists to photograph baptisms and confirmations against their will?

Who knew that any body in the U.S. would be following so quickly behind the Canadian Human Rights Commission -- another bully that has lately been persecuting the brilliant Mark Steyn?

Isn't freedom of conscience a human right, too?
