$13,000 fine for NY farm owners who said no to lesbian wedding

Catholic World News - August 26, 2014


A New York judge has imposed a $13,000 fine upon the owners of an Albany-area farm because they declined to rent their facilities to a lesbian couple who wished to get married there.

LifeSiteNews reported that the owners, Robert and Cynthia Gifford, are Catholic.

“The entire interaction between the complainants and the Giffords transpired during a two- to three-minute telephone conversation which, unknown to Mrs. Gifford, was being tape recorded,” said the Giffords’ attorney.

He added, “After communicating the fact that they chose not to hold same-sex marriage ceremonies at the farm because to do so would violate the Giffords’ sincerely held beliefs, Mrs. Gifford invited the couple to visit the farm to discuss handling their wedding reception, which the couple refused.”
