CitizenLink Report: Jail the Minister

CitizenLink Team: The once-hidden goal of gay activism is becoming startlingly clear: Throw anyone who disagrees in jail. Or at the very least, run them out of business using the power of government as a weapon.

Donald and Evelyn Knapp have run a wedding chapel in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, for 25 years. They are ordained ministers who firmly believe in God’s timeless design for marriage. The ceremonies at the “Hitching Post” are clearly religious. They talk about God. They quote from the Bible. They give every couple a list of Christian books about marriage. And two good sermons to listen to.

But their community changed its “nondiscrimination” ordinance in a way that discriminates against Christians. And the courts recently changed the definition of marriage in Idaho to mean something that it never has.

The result: Donald and Evelyn got a threatening message from local officials that they either start marrying men to men, or else they could face jail time – that could extend for the rest of their lives.

In The CitizenLink Report, Stuart Shepard talks to Bruce Hausknecht about what’s happening and how the Knapps are fighting back.
