From Huffington Post:

A photographer in Florida says he lost a client after he showed his support online for marriage equality. His response to the situation has won him legions of fans.

Lee says a client later contacted him to say that they would no longer be "using [his] services" for their upcoming wedding.

"My fiance and I support traditional marriage between a man and a woman and don't want to our money going to places that supports otherwise [sic]," the client allegedly wrote.

The photographer shared a screenshot of the exchange on Facebook Saturday, with the caption: "Lost a client for supporting gay marriage. But that's ok! We love everyone, even this now former client who may not have liked our reply. Lol."

Mr. Lee's full response to his client follows:

Wow, I'm not really sure what to say here. I would say this disappoints me, but I actually find this to be a good thing because our company now would now not like to work with you as well.

It's not that because you have a different view from us, but it's because, since you don't like an support gay marriage, no one else should be able to have it. That's like me not liking broccoli, and demanding that everyone else in the world should not have broccoli either! If you're not in favor of gay marriage that's fine, don't marry a woman.

Personally, I was taught not to judge others and to love everyone else. So I will try not to judge you here and say anything more as to my opinion of you.
