Filmmakers Face Prison for Not Promoting Gay Marriage

The tyranny with which Big Government is imposing the depraved LGBT agenda has reached the extreme of Christian filmmakers Carl and Angel Larsen being ordered by the state of Minnesota to make films promoting the sacrilegious concept of gay marriage:

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.

The stakes are high:

Penalties for violation include 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.

Squaring this with the First Amendment would be impossible for responsible jurists, but child’s play for the sort of black-robed liberal autocrats who found in the Constitution a right to impose gay marriage on the states.

What is more tyrannical than a government that tells you what you can’t say? A government that tells you what you must say:
