How To Go #OUTLAW – Lesson I

31 August 2014 @ 01:28

This short report* from The Daily Caller, Rachel Stoltzfoos reporting, is worth quoting in full [tip of the fedora to Darleen ‘Boudica’ Click]:

A Christian couple fined $13,000 for refusing to host a lesbian wedding on their New York farm has decided to close the venue rather than violate their religious beliefs.

Cynthia and Robert Gifford decided not to host ceremonies anymore, other than those already scheduled, Alliance Defending Freedom attorney James Trainor told The Blaze. ”Since the order essentially compelled them to do all ceremonies or none at all, they have chosen the latter in order to stay true to their religious convictions, even though it will likely hurt their business in the short run,” he said.

New Jersey couple Jennifer McCarthy and Melisa Erwin took the Giffords to court when they refused to host their 2012 wedding at Liberty Ridge Farm, where the Giffords host about a dozen weddings a year.

The Giffords were willing to host the reception, but not the actual ceremony.

A court ruled in favor of McCarthy and Erwin, and fined the Giffords $13,000 for refusing to host the ceremony.

LESSON: I would have urged the Giffords to keep on holding real weddings at their farm.

But, they should claim the happy couples are their friends and they are letting them use their site as friends, for free.

If, by some luck, some cash were to be left on the Gifford’s table and not be claimed…well, hey, God works in mysterious ways.

      There are several ways that the heroic British Queen’s name is spelled [ex: ‘Boudicca’, ‘Boadicea’], but I prefer this way.

    Pretty much how it’s going these days. The totalitarian impulses come out once homosexuals have legal privilages.

    Decadence has arrived.

    Why would these people want to force someone to do their ceremony. I would think they would want someone who’s heart was in it instead of making someone do something against their will.
