Liberty Ridge Farm Owners to Appeal Fine for Not HostingLesbian Wedding


The owners of Liberty Ridge Farm in Schaghticoke, New York, are appealing a ruling which fined them $13,000 for declining to host a lesbian wedding at their venue.

The farmers – Cynthia and Robert Gifford – were hauled in front of a Human Rights Commission and ultimately fined, despite the fact that the case clearly involved the religious freedom of the business owners and did not constitute a violation of anybody’s rights.

Additionally, the Gifford’s only declined the marriage ceremony itself, and were happy to allow the lesbian couple to host their reception at Liberty Ridge.

The owners have vowed to fight on.
