The Point: What Do Blueberries and Gay Weddings Have in Common? Nothing.

You must agree, or it’s your business. For the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

I read the headline and thought, “This can’t be true.”: “You Can’t Sell Blueberries Unless You Affirm Gay Marriage.”

But the city of East Lansing, Michigan has banned the Tennes family from selling produce at the city’s farmers market. Why? Because their Catholic faith prohibits them from hosting gay weddings on their farm.

The city said the family had violated East Lansing’s “Civil Rights ordinances and public policy against discrimination.” Never mind that the Tennes farm is 22 miles outside the city limits and that hosting weddings way out there has nothing to do with selling blueberries in town.

Folks, way back in 2010 Chuck Colson said that so-called “gay marriage” would, “spell the doom of religious freedom in America.” That’s being played out before our eyes in East Lansing and elsewhere.

So what do you do? Pray. Vote. Support organizations like the Alliance Defending Freedom, which is suing East Lansing on behalf of the Tennes family. When it comes to religious freedom, we can’t give up.
