The owners of a video company have filed a legal challenge to Minnesota’s gay marriage law because they want to shoot weddings for heterosexual couples only.
Carl and Angel Larsen said they will be punished for refusing wedding services to same-sex couples. The St. Cloud couple, who owns Telescope Media Group, filed a lawsuit against the state’s human rights commission and attorney general.
The couple’s federal lawsuit has the backing of the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal nonprofit organization, the Star Tribune ( strib.mn/2g9Z6wX ) reported.
