Elliot-Larsen Expansion Will Cause Charities And Businesses To Close And Will Allow Additional Lawsuits And Fines

Have you heard about the Christian couple in New York who were fined $13,000 for refusing to host a homosexual wedding in their home? Or the New Mexico photographer fined $6,600 for refusing as a matter of conscience to photograph a lesbian wedding?

Currently there are two homosexual "rights" bills in the state House of Representatives that similarly threaten religious freedom here in Michigan.

Democrats in Lansing have introduced House Bill 5804, which would create special protection for individuals who engage in homosexual behavior or cross-dressing, giving men who claim to be women the "right" to use women's restrooms, locker rooms, and showers. Read the Democrats' bill here.

And outgoing Republican Rep. Frank Foster, who lost in his primary because of intention of expanding Elliot-Larson, still
Frank Foster (R?)
introduced House Bill 5959, which would enact a law identical to other states that have been used to persecute, punish, fine, and discriminate against Christian photographers, bakers, florists and others who refuse as a matter of faith to provide professional services to homosexual weddings. Read Foster's bill here.

Foster's bill is also...

  • Identical to laws that ban Catholic Charities from referring children for adoption because they won't refer children to homosexual couples.
  • Identical to laws that ban the Boy Scouts from using public parks and campgrounds because the Scouts don't allow openly homosexual Scoutmasters.
  • Identical to laws that prohibit the Salvation Army from bidding on government contracts to serve the poor, because it doesn't allow homosexual clergy.
