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.

U will not conform
This is only the beginning! They have a choice though! Conform to the laws or let their business crumble, do the jail time and/or let the daily fines pile up!
This is sad, though not surprising because we are in the last days….
But this is where u stand on ur God and belief for vendication because he’s not going to let u fall when standing for him….. test of faith… will u buckle or stand! I am standing!
This is ridiculous, but we are in the last days so really nothing is surprising me right now…. but this is where u have to stand for ur beliefs and wait on God to vendicate u…. he wont let u fall for obeying him
This doesn’t surprise me. I pray the Lord will back them up and stand with them.
As for me….I’d get my COMMISSARY list together. Send me to jail. I refuse to compromise!
well they are a for profit organization so they have to follow the laws
Inevitable. ..face persecution
Wow! Not surprised though! I wonder what they’re going to do!
