Part 4. What comes after same-sex marriage? You only have to look to the countries that have already redefined the institution to get an idea.
Telescope Media Group is a Christians film company based in Minnesota. It’s a small family business, run by husband and wife team, Carl and Angel Larsen. Their company tagline reads, “We want to magnify Christ like a telescope.”
Recently, a Minnesota court has ruled that the couple are in violation of the state’s Human Rights Act which requires them to abandon their faith by using their God-given gifts to create films celebrating homosexuality and same-sex marriage.
According to the Alliance Defending Freedom, “State officials have categorically, publicly, and repeatedly threatened to prosecute expressive business owners who decline to create speech promoting same-sex marriage. Steep penalties exist for violating the law, including payment of a civil penalty to the state; triple compensatory damages; punitive damages of up to $25,000; a criminal penalty of up to $1,000; and even up to 90 days in jail.”
Jeremy Tedesco, ADF Senior Counsel, warned, “The same government that can force them to violate their faith and conscience can force anyone of us to do the same.”
