Minister, a same-sex couple asked a photographer to take photos of their wedding. As a professional, he said he was perfectly happy to take the commission but in the interests of transparency he also courteously explained that his faith meant he had a traditional view of marriage and they should be aware of that before making a final decision on their wedding photographer. He is now being taken to a tribunal. Does the government consider that the loss of his religious freedom is an acceptable price of government inaction? (Time expired)
