LGBT activists have sued many Christians over their refusal to materially participate in same-sex weddings. And two of their earliest victims were Dick and Betty Odgaard, who closed their family business rather than compromise the Word of God.

Don't miss the Odgaards' incredible story on the next JANET MEFFERD TODAY.
