Gov't can't force Christians to make gay wedding videos
An appeals court has ruled in favor of a Christian couple who oversee a film company that were told by Minnesota officials that they must film same-sex weddings despite religious objections.
A three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit decided last Friday that the Minnesota Human Rights Act violated the First Amendment rights of Carl and Angel Larsen of Telescope Media Group.
The decision largely overturned a lower court ruling against the Larsens and remanded their request for an injunction against the MHRA back to the district court level....

"God's plan for many homosexuals is that they come to salvation. There were former homosexuals in the Corinthian church back in Paul's day (1 Cor. 6:9-11), just as there are many former homosexuals today in my church and in faithful churches around the country. With regenerated hearts, they sit in biblical churches throughout the country praising their Savior, along with former fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, thieves, coveters, drunkards, revilers, and swindlers. Remember, such were some of you too." -John MacArthur, God's Plan for the Gay Agenda Jesus died so that heterosexual and homosexual sinners might be saved."

Matt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."
If Jiminyâ€™s beloved Demoncrats have their way, the newly reintroduced Do No Harm Act will essentially negate the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 and Christian business owners will either have to compromise their religious beliefs or close their businesses. As soon as I am done here, Iâ€™ll be contacting my representatives and asking them to vigorously oppose this bill. If you care at all about religious freedom in America, I urge you to do the same.
