W-W Bridal Boutique Suffers The Blame Of The Whole Community Of Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania After Refusing To Sell Wedding Dresses To A Lesbian Couple

In Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, the clothing store "W-W Bridal Boutique" has got much of the local community and many other Americans' back up after refusing to sell wedding dresses at a lesbian couple.

The store owner Victoria Miller justified her refusal using her Christian religion:

"We feel we have to answer to God for what we do, and providing those two girls dresses for a sanctified marriage would break God’s law," she said in a statement.

It seems that the laws of Pennsylvania allow this kind of behavior and unfortunately, without an anti-discrimination law, there is no possible legal recourse.

But the case gained momentum and now many people are taking advantage of this case to give their views on marriage equality on Facebook or Yelp.

The equal marriage ban was repealed last May in Pennsylvania and Governor Tom Corbett has said he would not appeal the decision of the court.

It seems that the city council could introduce an anti-discrimination law but it remains to be seen.
