Farmer Denied Participation in Farmer’s Market Due to Religious Beliefs

Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed a lawsuit this week on behalf of Michigan organic farmer Steve Tennes of Country Mill Farms, who was denied participation in East Lansing’s farmer’s market, even though he had consistently provided exceptional service as a participant in the farmer’s market for the past six years. His offense? He mentioned his religious beliefs about marriage on his farm’s Facebook page. East Lansing city officials saw the post and then began developing a new policy aimed at blocking Tennes from participation.
