Well this is an outrage. The couple who declined to host a lesbian wedding on their property will not only have to pay a fine, they’ll have to attend “re-training” classes or have a “trainer” come to them. So now our government thinks they have the authority to brainwash people? CNSNews has the story:
A couple who hosts occasional wedding ceremonies on their New York farm have lost an appeal to overturn the $13,000 in fines levied against them by the state’s human rights agency, which ruled that their refusal to host a wedding for two women was discriminatory.
On Jan. 14, the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Department, upheld the agency’s order and the fines, a decision the Alliance Defending Freedom – which represented Robert and Cynthia Gifford – said amounted to confirming, “that the government can punish the Giffords for declining to coordinate a ceremony that conflicts with their conscience.”
