Christian
businessman sues to keep antigay policies

A businessman is suing Arlington, Va., officials after they ordered him to duplicate two gay-themed videos.

An antigay businessman is suing Arlington, Va., officials after they ordered him to duplicate two gay-themed videos as required by the city's nondiscrimination law. Tim Bono, owner of Bono Film and Video, has a company policy: He won't duplicate material that's obscene or violates his Christian and ethical values, the Associated Press reports.

Bono turned down a woman who wanted him to duplicate films titled Gay and Proud and Second Largest Minority. She complained to Arlington County's Human Rights Commission, which told him that his refusal violated the county's ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Bono's lawsuit says his constitutional rights are being violated and that state law doesn't permit counties to add sexual orientation protection to antidiscrimination statutes. (The Advocate)
