After Betty and Richard Odgaard refused to allow same-sex marriages at their Iowa gallery, the couple closed their business and bought 1,000 billboards denouncing gay marriage. Obviously.
When Betty and Richard Odgaard refused to allow same-sex marriages in their Iowa venue, the Gortz Haus Gallery, they believed they were just exercising their religious rights. But a same-sex couple filed a complaint against them, and the Odgaards decided they'd rather close their venue than let same-sex couples get married there. The couple then resolved to use donations made to their organization, God's Original Design Ministry, to fund 1,000 billboards supporting traditional marriage, because that's definitely a better use of charitable donations than feeding the hungry or housing the homeless. The first billboards went up last week in Durant, Oklahoma, a state that they even don't live in because spreading hate knows no state-lines.
The Odgaard's do say that the billboards aren't about hate. "It's just that we want to hold up the Biblical view of marriage," they told the Des Moines Register. It's also worth noting that Betty and Dick claim to work with, hire, and serve gays and lesbians. Although these people are without comment, as far I have found, I have no doubt that they definitely, certainly exist.
If you're curious, you can watch two videos about the Odgaard's fight for religious freedom. One video is brought to you by The Beckett Fund for Religious Liberty, in what most reasonable people would call religious propaganda:
And the other video is brought to you by Congress's favorite petulant child, Ted Cruz.
If you're interested, Cruz is hosting a rally for Religious Liberty on August 21st in Des Moines, Iowa. You can go there to find likeminded homophobes fighting for their right to openly discriminate.
