Farm Couple Fined Thousands for Declining ‘Gay Wedding’

avatar

CBN News — A New York couple faces thousands of dollars in fines for declining to rent out their family farm for a same-sex wedding celebration.

The New York State Division of Human Rights fined Cynthia and Robert Gifford $13,000 for declining a request from a lesbian couple to rent the family barn for their ceremony.

The Giffords have owned and operated Liberty Ridge Farm in for over 25 years. They believe marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

Like many small farm families, they often open up their home to host public events, including weddings.

In addition to the fines, the family has been told to implement “re-education” classes for their staff.

Should the government be in the business of “re-educating” citizens to change their moral beliefs? Ryan Anderson, with the Heritage Foundation, talks about this and more.
