Two Christian extremists face jail time for refusing to make invitations for gay weddings

By Suzette Guitierrex-Cathila

ARIZONA---Two Christian artists who create hand-painted invitations and cards could be facing jail time and heavy penalties for refusing to make invitations for same-sex weddings. Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, owners of art design studio Brush & Nib, challenged an ordinance in Phoenix, Arizona that prohibits them from refusing clients for same-sex weddings. Under the same ordinance, they are also not allowed to discuss their convictions or the reason for not accepting clients for same-sex weddings. If they should violate these laws, they would be imprisoned for six months for every day they fail to comply. [link]
