America,  on a collision course with God..??..!!.?.

The city of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, is threatening two ordained Christian ministers with arrest if they refuse to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples.

The Hitching Post Wedding Chapel is across the street from the Kootenai County Clerk’s office, which issues marriage licenses. Last week, Donald Knapp and his wife Evelyn, both ordained ministers who run the chapel, respectfully declined to perform a same-sex “marriage” ceremony.
According to the Coeur d’Alene city attorney, they now face up to 180 days in jail and up to $1,000 in fines for each day they decline to perform that ceremony.
City officials said the Knapps are required to perform such ceremonies or face months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines. The city claims its "non-discrimination" ordinance requires them to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies despite the fact that they are Christians and the chapel publicly states it only performs Christian-based ceremonies.

  1. They should have known better than to make a living marrying people. But these Gaystapo tactics are getting out of hand.

  2. Agreed, but in America where it appears anything goes, it is sad to see anything goes, UNLESS in any way it shows a Christian base. As Christians in America continue to be marginalized I pray faith, strength and resolute commitment to Jesus our LORD will be evident in His body.
