Georgia Company Refuses To Print Wedding Invitations For Same-Sex Couple

In the latest clash between business owners and same-sex couples, WXIA News reported yesterday that a suburban Atlanta printing business has refused to print wedding invitations for a same-sex couple. The owner of a Suwanee, Georgia Alpha Graphics franchise refused on religious grounds to print the invitations that Paige Beth says she wanted designed to look like a train ticket. The Alpha Graphics home office issued a statement apologizing, and emphasizing that the company does not condone discrimination on the basis of race, religion, nationality, ethnicity or sexual orientation.  Georgia's is one of 5 states that has no public accommodation law (except for disabled persons).
