Example 7 - Code right v. Code right: Civil marriage commissioner and same-sex couple

Civil marriage commissioner and same-sex couple

A civil marriage commissioner objects to performing a marriage ceremony for a same-sex couple, claiming that it violates his religious beliefs. He claims that under the Code, he has the right to be free from discrimination based on religion in employment. The couple wishing to receive the service claims that their right under the Code to be free from discrimination because of sexual orientation in services is being breached.
