Skip to comments.State Tells Christian Filmmakers: Make Same-Sex Marriage Films or Spend 90 Days in Jail
Posted on 10/18/2018 5:36:32 PM PDT by massmike
Two Christian filmmakers appeared before the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Paul Tuesday to challenge Minnesota state law which they say illegally forces them to produce and create films expressing messages that contradict their core beliefs.
Telescope Media Group owners Carl and Angel Larsen have already been threatened with hefty fines and up to 90 days in jail if they choose to disregard the law.
The Larsens want to enter the wedding industry. However, the state's Human Rights Act stipulates if the couple creates films celebrating their Christian beliefs about marriage that marriage is between one man and one woman, they must also create films about marriage that violate their beliefs, including films promoting same-sex marriages.
In 2017, the Larsens tried to challenge the law as unconstitutional but a lower court dismissed their case and mandated that they service same-sex weddings or close this part of their business. They are now appealing to the 8th Circuit Court.

I believe the Supremes have already decided the issue.
Looks like each and every case will require litigation.
Where is that douchebag Jeff Sessions and the DOJ with a lawsuit against Minnesota for depriving them of their First Amendment rights?
Attorney General Jeff sessions is as worthless as tits on a boar hog.
“Looks like each and every case will require litigation.”
Precedence should speed things up. Though, if it were me, I might say”sure we’ll make videos about other lifestyle “marriages” - polygamy, bestiality, incest - to let people know how well they work out.
I’d do the gay wedding video, but charge like $25k for pain and suffering.
Minnesota, populated by a lot of Swedes, resembles Sweden in so many ways. _____’s bring _____ with them wherever they go.
So make a movie about same sex couples. Like the lesbians who drove their family off a cliff in California.
Since perversions are now required by law equal rights under the law demands beastiality and any other sick form of sex needs legal protections as well!
I am now adding Minnesota to my list of states where it is unsafe for a Christian to live.
They could make same sex films, just explaining how unbiblical and immoral they are. Not really a problem.
Human Rights Act stipulates if the couple creates films celebrating that marriage is between one man and one woman, they must also create films promoting same-sex marriages.
Talk about out of control government.
They would probably have a lot of existing competition.
This is sick. If the Founders could see this, they think twice about enacting the Constitution.
No they have not. On the altar of getting a broader consensus than 5-4, the SCOTUS decision was based on the biased rights commission, not on the underlying principle. Thats why the Colorado Baker is right back in the situation he was in the first place. If my memory is correct, the next lawsuit has already been filed
This is why we have to demand that the SCOTUS actually decide issues completely.
What country is this in? /s
