Pa. shop: No wedding gowns for lesbian couple

Posted: Updated:
BLOOMSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A bridal store's refusal to sell wedding gowns to a same-sex couple is stirring debate in a central Pennsylvania town.

The Press Enterprise of Bloomsburg reports the women tried to schedule an appointment but were turned down.

W.W. Bridal Boutique owner Victoria Miller tells the newspaper that "providing those two girls dresses for a sanctified marriage would break God's law."

Bloomsburg Town Council plans to discuss the incident at a meeting on Monday. Council members say they will consider whether to propose legislation to ban businesses from refusing to serve gays and lesbians.

Miller's attorney, Al Luschas, says the shop owner has a "liberty interest" in refusing to take part in a process that would violate "firmly and honestly held religious beliefs."
