And we need to let our friends and acquaintances know about these cases, especially the Masterpiece Cakeshop one. And urge your pastor to speak from the pulpit about these cases.I've just run into a few too many pastors who simply don't see the urgency of the situation.Millie is a wonderful Australian Labradoodle who came to me from Tualatin Labradoodles in Portland, OR.I flew all the way there to get her and she was just so worth every mile.So, she decided she wasn't going to shoot any weddings. The court ruled that the ordinance didn't apply to her because her business didn't have a storefront.But she also decided to challenge a local ordinance and the state law.

Minnesotans and videographers Carl and Angel Larsen serve all people, but, as the Alliance Defending Freedom states, they "draw the line at creating videos celebrating same-sex weddings because of the biblical teaching on marriage."The Larsens knew that by declining to use their artistic talents to participate in something they believed to be wrong, they could face penalties. Well, triple compensatory damages, punitive damages of up to ,000, and as much as 90 days in jail. So, like Amy Larsen, they filed what's called a "pre-enforcement" challenge. judge in their case compared their refusal to participate in gay weddings to "conduct akin to a 'White Applicants Only' sign."As ADF stated, this ruling was "probably the worst language we've seen to date" in one of these cases.
