The owner of a bridal shop in Pennsylvania has become the latest target of angry criticism due to her refusal to validate a behavior her Christian faith condemns. Victoria Miller, the owner of W.W. Bridal Boutique in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, has been skewered on Facebook and in the media after she refused two women who allegedly wanted her shop to fit them for bridal gowns for their same-sex wedding.
According to one of the two women, who insisted on not being identified, when she called the store to make an appointment, she was put on hold for about five minutes and then was told that no appointment would be scheduled because the bridal shop did not service same-sex couples.
Explaining her decision, Miller told a local newspaper, “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.”
Following the polite refusal, the two women took to the shop’s Facebook page to vent their anger, prompting a volley of responses from individuals who either condemned or supported the actions of the business owner.
