I've been asking questions like this for days, but none of you seem to want to answer.

Artistic expression is speech for constitutional purposes. There could not be a clearer celebration of same-sex marriage than a same-sex wedding. Compelling a third party to make an artistic portrayal of that wedding, even though he did not want the job and strongly opposed same-sex marriage for religious or other reasons, would be compelling him to endorse it against his will. I don't think it's even a close call, in the case of an artist. It would violate the freedom of speech just as surely as laws violated it by forcing Jehovah's Witnesses to salute the flag, as in Barnette, or to display "Live Free or Die" on their license plates, as in Wooley.
Here is an amicus brief in the Elane Photography case that goes into this issue in detail. I think the authors have it exactly right.
