Sorry my Christian friends, but the bible is pretty clear on this.

Matthew 22:20-21 the teachings of Christ telling his disciples to follow the law.

20: And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

21: They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

A Christian doesn't have to like the law. But they are commanded by their Savior to obey it.

A Christian in China must obey the Chinese law.

A Christian in Iran must obey the Iranian law.

A Christian in the U.S. must obey the U.S. law.

Christ NEVER told anyone to disobey the law of their governing land.

You are misusing the quote, it does not say "obey the law of the land, no matter what"

It was illegal in communism to own a copy of the bible. I lived in Bulgaria where pastors and normal Christians were actually persecuted, tortured, killed. My government had a dossier on my sister when she was only 13....

It was illegal to hide Jews in Germany from the Nazis.

Christians should consider following in their Master's footsteps... You know, be Christians. Christ who was known to associate with criminals and prostitutes. He never judged anyone. He took the opportunity to set example whenever he could.

The U.S. is a nation where citizens can work to change the laws. If an argument is sound beyond religious convictions, then the laws may be changed. Until then, everyone should obey the law or be ready to suffer the consequences. God would rather you obey the law than have you pass judgement upon one of his beloved children.

God would rather we obey HIS law! and choosing not to service an act againts His law is probably fine in his eyes. 
Read about Daniel in the lions den. and why he was put there in the first place... D

Remember in Luke 6:37

"Jesus said: Don’t judge others, and God won’t judge you. Don’t be hard on others, and God won’t be hard on you. Forgive others, and God will forgive you."

Now I don't like it either. I feel that photographers should be able to pick and choose their jobs for whatever reason they so desire. But I do not appreciate anyone giving my industry a bad name. We togs have enough trouble with copyrights and camera prohibitions to worry about. We don't need to be seen by the public as law breakers.

I'm booking you for my next gay porno shoot!!!!
