Two Christian business owners in the U.S. are faced with imprisonment and fines after refusing to use their artistic talents to create invitations for a same-sex wedding.
Graphic designers Joanna and Breanna run a stationery company called Brush & Nib Studio that makes invitations for different events, including weddings.
Their story is the latest in a series of legal cases in the U.S. where Christians are being forced to comply with pro-LGBT laws.
‘Beliefs About Marriage’
They have been accused of violating laws which require Christians to cater for all customer requests, including those made by same-sex couples.
The Phoenix non-discrimination ordinance also prevents them from explaining to customers and the public why they could only create art consistent with their beliefs about marriage.

lhwm notes: Matthew 10:22 You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved. A True Christian is not going to be liked, because we stand in what we believe, who we believe in, and how we live our lives. Keep standing and keep praying! God is faithful to His Word!
How do they live their lives
“Romans 1:30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,”
Who is their father
John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
Your either a child of God or a child of the devil. That is what scripture says, but we have a choice each day. I was once a child of the devil (Yep). Hated life, hated people, and was angry and hurt all the time so I took it out on people and did what I wanted to do. A rough childhood can bring some ugliness out of you, but I got tired of living a life of destruction and was seeking something different. I definitely was not seeking God or Jesus, because of my past, but Jesus found me anyway. You still have options and the truth is like a “two-edge sword“. That’s right it hurts! To read or hear the truth about ourselves takes responsibility, but the next step will determine your life ahead. Are you ready to make a different choice?
