Idaho Ministers Ordered To Perform Same Sex Marriages

20 Oct

City officials of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho told  Donald and Evelyn KnappKnapps , both ordained ministers, they have  to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies or be fined and face jail time.

The city passed a  “non-discrimination” ordinance requiring  “public accommodations” businesses to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies. The Knapps have been informed that their Hitching Post Wedding Chapel falls under such category and  will be forced to abide by the “non discrimination” ordinance.

How can this happen?  Think  U.S. Circuit Court  that overruled  Idaho’s voter-approved constitutional amendment that affirmed marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

Elections are important since we may be nearing the time when one single Supreme Court ruling could legally force all churches and ministers to abide by a same-sex marriage non-discrimination law or be sentenced to jail time and pay huge fines.
