Culture news: Religious exemption for those in the wedding business?

It is likely that when the state of Oregon votes on whether to allow homosexual marriage, voters will be asked whether they want to include a measure that allows florists, bakers and others who are involved in the wedding business to refuse to participate in homosexual weddings on religious grounds.  Other states are considering similar legislation.  This will be an interesting test to see whether our culture is willing to permit religious freedom outside of the walls of a religious house of worship.
