Default Couple Fined For Refusing Gay Marriage On Their Farm Comes Up With Solution

Christian Couple Fined For Refusing Gay Marriage On Their Farm Comes Up With Perfect Solution
In 2012, Cynthia and Robert Gifford, a Christian couple who owned a farm in upstate New York where marriage receptions were often held, politely refused to hold a gay marriage on the premises when a lesbian couple targeted their farm as their venue of choice.

The lesbian couple sued, prompting a three-and-a-half year legal battle that culminated in the New York Supreme Court Appellate Division upholding a decision by the New York Division of Human Rights in 2014, in which an administrative law judge for the state, Magdalia Pares, fined the Giffords $10,000 and ordered them to pay lesbian couple $1,500 each....
But now, the Giffords have created the perfect response to the whole unfair situation: they inform anyone who wants to hold a wedding on their property that they will donate a percentage of their profits to organizations that champion traditional marriage in America.

As Faithwire reports: “Displayed at the bottom of each page in the ‘Weddings’ section of its website is a clearly marked disclaimer that reads”:
At Liberty Ridge Farm, our deeply held religious belief is that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, and the Farm is operated with the purpose of strengthening and promoting marriage. In furtherance of this purpose and to honor and promote our moral and religious beliefs, we donate a portion of our business proceeds to organizations that promote strong marriages such as the Family Research Council. The patronage of all potential clients for all services offered is welcome regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, sexual orientation, military status, sex, disability or marital status. All couples legally permitted to marry in the state of New York are welcome to hold their wedding at Liberty Ridge Farm. We serve everyone equally....

I don't know if it's a "perfect" response. But it would probably foul the waters enough for some. I suspect that other Homosexuals would just see it as another challenge to "their well being" and "rights" and still want to force the owners them to have the wedding and like it. Or beating them to death financially and/or legally.

That sounds like a perfect solution. I'm sure they will come under fire for this also, but they should be standing on solid legal ground if challenged.
