Perform Same Sex Weddings Or Face Prosecution


Two Christian ministers who own an Idaho wedding chapel were told they had to either perform same-sex weddings or face jail time and up to $1,000 in daily fines, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court.

Alliance Defending Freedom is representing Donald and Evelyn Knapp, two ordained ministers who own the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel in Coeur d’Alene.

“Right now they are at risk of being prosecuted,” attorney Jeremy Tedesco told me. “The threat of enforcement is more than just credible.”

The wedding chapel is registered as a “religious corporation” limited to performing “one-man-one-woman marriages as defined by the Holy Bible.”


However, the chapel is also a for-profit business and city officials said that means the owners must comply with the local nondiscrimination ordinance.

That ordinance, passed in 2013, prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and it applies to housing, employment and public accommodation.

City Attorney Warren Wilson told The Spokesman-Review in May that the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel likely would be required to follow the ordinance.

  2. THE GOVERNMENT KNOWS THAT THE OUTCRY WOULD BE SO GREAT THAT they would not continue to see this thru until the time of the gentiles is thru, men shall become lovers of themselves, ears are itching, if we do not do it God said they will find teachers willing to sooth their itchy ears. It is time for the great apostasy , the book of timothy speak of this very thing… and in the days of Noah their were orgies, homosexuality, giving up children to be sacrificed, people giving into diverse spirits, calling right Wong, and wrong right, not heeding the word and despising those who brought it I think this is right on tome with what has been prophesied, look up everybody

  3. This started when GEORGE bush was in office, it became against the law to preach or speak against homosexuality, if a pastor of minister was reported as doing so, the church was /. is fined 500, and faced the danger of being closed. Greed from the churches, allowed this to happen because the government promised money to churches, the only stipulation was that they, the government could come into the church and speak, and the choice of who spoke would be that of the government churches jumped at the money without thinking of the long term repercussions ,,,, well here is the long term
