ANTI-GAY MARRIAGE FARMER STEVE TENNES FILES LAWSUIT AFTER MAYOR BANNED HIM FOR ‘DISCRIMINATION’ SELLING AT FARMERS MARKET
Michigan farmer Steve Tennes and his family have been told that they can’t sell their crops at a local farmers market due to their views on same-sex marriage, and now they’re suing the city of East Lansing.
Last year, someone posted a message on Country Mill Farm’s Facebook page inquiring about whether they hosted same-sex weddings at the farm.
Tennes, a devout Catholic, told the individual that they did not because of their religious beliefs.
City officials later discovered the Facebook post and began immediate action to remove Country Mill from the farmers market, alleging a violation of the city’s discrimination ordinance.
On “The Story” tonight, Tennes, accompanied by his lawyer Kristen Waggoner, explained that the city changed the wording of the ordinance specifically to bar his farm.
