Mennonite Couple Refuses to Host Same-Sex Wedding; Files Lawsuit Against Iowa Civil Rights Commission

A Mennonite couple that owns an art gallery in Iowa has filed suit against the state's Civil Rights Commission over being threatened with punitive action for refusing to host a same-sex wedding on their property.

Görtz Haus Gallery, a former church turned art gallery facility, filed a lawsuit Monday against the commission in Polk County District Court.

"The Odgaards welcome all customers into the Gallery, regardless of their race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, or disability," reads the suit in part.

"The Odgaards may be exposed to financial punishment and other forms of official coercion for refusing to abandon their religious convictions to comply with the ICRC's dictates." ...

I stand with you in spirit. Evil must be resisted. The light that shines in us is one that darkness cannot comprehend. It may look as if they are winning but a woeful defeat awaits evil. Children of light cannot loose. We must not give up fighting these practices thatarose from theit's of hell. I join you in prayer. The God you are standing for will stand for you.

The darker the world around us the brighter our light will shine. We read things like this and it causes us to want to continue to "run the race with patience, to fight the fight" as Paul said. Also we have a "cloud of witnesses, watching us, cheering us on" Hebrews 11 the faith chapter. The homosexuals do what they do because they can..because they are given the green light by a leader that has no morals a government that allows him to be a "loose cannon". They feel powerful now and are using that power to harass those who dare oppose them..the labor pains are getting closer together and harder.Things are waxing worse and worse.

Crissy, are you kidding me? I see more and more of that garbage on TV and it's really disgusting. I cringe and turn away; always wondering how it is that anyone can find sexual references to animals humorous. So disgusting and disturbing that people find things like that funny, etc.

Well, I think for most of these people, it has nothing whatsoever to do with anything other than being awarded money for their "pain and suffering" boo-hoo. They can get married anywhere so I believe that they are taking full advantage of todays litigious society and politically correct laws to fatten their bank accounts.
What I don't understand is the lawsuit itself. These people own an art gallery. Can a gay couple sue me because I won't allow them to get married in my back yard or on the grounds where my business is located? I didn't read anything about the art gallery doubling as a wedding facility.

Homosexuals know they're in sin. Their conscious confirms it so they are attempting to get approval from others in order to appease that guilty conscious but this is just getting ridiculous!

What is with the homosexuals anyway? Why are they Hell bent on forcing their perverted lifestyle on everybody? Why didn't that homosexual couple simply go to some other venue that would have accepted them instead of filing a suit againt that Mennonite couple?
