American Family Association: “mandatory gay brain-washing” for Christian business owners

“Homosexual activists are now intentionally seeking out Christian business owners for the sole purpose of attacking and destroying religious liberties.”


–An excerpt from an email by the American Family Association’s president, Tim Wildmon. Wildmon claims that Christian business owners will “face fines” and “mandatory gay brain-washing”, citing the example of Liberty Ridge Farms, which refused to host a same-sex wedding and was fined $13,000 for doing so by a New York judge as it constituted a “denial of access to a place of public accommodation”, illegal under New York’s non-discrimination laws.
