City: You Can’t Sell Blueberries Unless You Affirm Gay Marriage
The Tennes family has been farming in Michigan for generations.
They grow all sorts of crops at the Country Mill Farm – organic apples, blueberries, pumpkins, sweet corn.
And for the past seven years, Steve Tennes and his family have sold their produce at the farmer’s market owned by the city of East Lansing.
But this year – city officials told the devout Catholic family that their blueberries and sweet corn were not welcome at the farmer’s market – and neither were they.
Last year, someone posted a message on Country Mill’s Facebook page inquiring about whether they hosted same-sex weddings at the farm.
