Lesbian partners, Tifanny Allen and Angel Lane, wrote to a designer based in New York to inquire about a $1,500 jumpsuit they would love to wear for their wedding.
However, Dominique Galbraith, who is the owner of D.Auxilly, the designer shop said, “I wouldn’t be able to make a piece for a same-sex wedding.”
“It goes against my faith in Christ,” Galbraith continued.
Galbraith then tried to convince and subsequently convert the couple from their beliefs saying
“I believe Jesus died for our sins so that we would live for him according to His Holy Word.”
“I know you both love each other and that this feels right, but I encourage you both to reconsider and see what the Lord has to say and the wonderful things He has in store for you both if you trust and obey him”, she said.
On a final note, Galbraith said, “God Bless and be with you both! I’m available to talk and share more about Jesus if you’d like. Feel free to call me.”
However, Allen, in her reply, said, “I hurt because I feel like we weren’t good enough.”
“We have been together for seven years. Lane said that the jumpsuit was the “only thing I found that I fell in love with” and that she “couldn’t stop thinking about it.”
“I have friends who are Christians,” Lane said on her part. “I know people from so many walks of life, and none of them is hateful to my fiancée and me.”
“True Christian people, whether they’re Catholic, whether they’re Baptist, it doesn’t matter, a person that truly has their heart will tell you God doesn’t make any mistakes then I’m not a mistake,” Allen said. “My fiancée is not a mistake.”
However, a St Louis University law professor Marcia McCormick has said the designer might be violating the New York State law that forbids discrimination based on sexual orientation.
