That’s what’s happening in Idaho, where Christian ministers Donald and Evelyn Knapp are being threatened with fines and jail time if they don’t perform same sex weddings in their chapel in Coeur D’Alene.

The Knapps were told that they must perform marriage ceremonies for same sex couples. When they declined, the couple was told that they would face consequences.

Should ministers who make a living performing wedding ceremonies be required to perform same sex marriages if they are legal in that state?
