When [lesbian] Melissa McCord posted [Rusev's reply] on social media dozens of comments were posted to the business' Facebook page. People were outraged that McCord was refused service due to her sexuality.

Rusev, a native of Ukraine says she feels bullied by the comments left on the company's Facebook page.

"This takes me back to about 26 years ago when my family and I fled from a country that persecuted people for their belief."

"I believe people should be able to choose how they live their life," said Rusev. "But for me because of my personal belief I believe marriage should be between a man and a woman."

"If I hurt anyone I apologize, but that is my personal belief," said Rusev. "We all are entitled to our beliefs."

For more than two decades, Lana has been adjusting to her life in the U.S. -- but she never dreamed that adjustment would include an assault to the very freedoms she came here seeking. . . .

In a polite letter to Melissa McCord and her partner, Rusev explained that not only was there a conflict with the dates -- but with her conscience. “After checking our booked events I have discovered that we are booked on the 30th and 31st and unfortunately are not able to take additional events for the weekend. Also, due to my strong personal belief, I do not feel comfortable planning a wedding for lesbian couples. I hope you understand and do not take this personally. I am really sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.”

That enraged the couple, who took familiar revenge: launching a full-scale social media assault against the company. Within hours, Lana was inundated with threats and negative business reviews. But it’ll take a lot more than harassment to scare off Rusev. “I understand that they may be hurt, but there are other wedding planners who are okay with doing this,” she told the local newspaper. “Take your business elsewhere.”
