As a result of a temporary injunction that was issued last Friday, Steve and Bridget Tennes of Country Mill Farms in Charlotte, Mich., will be allowed to sell their produce at the East Lansing Farmer’s Market until their lawsuit challenging their ouster is resolved.
The market had banned the couple in June after they posted on Facebook their belief that same-sex “marriages” are inconsistent with their Christian faith. The post was in response to a question about the family farm as a wedding venue.
Though their case is far from over, this is good news for the Tennes family. Says Kate Anderson, the Alliance Defending Freedom lawyer representing the farming couple, “Just like all Americans, a farmer should be free to live and speak according to his deeply held religious beliefs without fear of government punishment.”
