    America’s hyper-politicization continues to grow apace. We now find public officials who regard themselves as “progressive” attacking citizens who don’t happen to agree with every aspect of their agenda (i.e., state regulation of just about everything). A revealing case like that has just surfaced in Michigan. Steve Tennes owns a farm (called The Country Mill) in the small town of Charlotte in south-central Michigan. He grows a variety of fruit and for years has been trucking some of it to sell in the public Farmers Market in East Lansing, about twenty miles away. The buying and selling of produce used...

    After nearly two years of litigation, a Michigan court ruled against plaintiff Yvette Cormier, who filed a complaint regarding a transgender woman — biological man — utilizing the women’s locker room at Planet Fitness, the Daily Wire reports. Shorty after joining her local Planet Fitness in Midland, Michigan, Mrs. Cormier encountered a man in the women’s locker room. Feeling uncomfortable, she notified the front desk at Planet Fitness that a man was in the women’s locker room. In the name of its “no judgment policy,” Cormier was told that whatever sex an individual self-identifies as allows that person to have...

Reuters reports that the move remains controversial, but Republicans in the state even found a few Democrats to vote with them on the measure.

    Abdul El-Sayed played football at his suburban Detroit high school. He was pretty good, so he was always double-teamed. In his first game after the 9/11 attacks, opposing players hurled insults at him. “Go home.” “Raghead.” That sort of thing. In the blink of an eye, he recalled, “I went from being a chubby kid with a funny name to being a very stigmatized minority.” Naturally, he was angry. He took a swing at one of the taunters. “The coach pulled me out of the game and said, ‘Listen, you’re going to be Abdul El-Sayed for the rest of your...

    An orchard near East Lansing, MI is suing the city because they've been barred from a Farmers Market due to their religious views on same sex marriage. There are several issues that make this case unique. For one, the orchard does not discriminate in selling products in East Lansing to anyone, even same sex couples. The city has accused them of discriminating against gays on their private property because the owner refuses to host same sex marriages at the orchard in Charlotte, MI. Secondly, in order to bar the orchard from selling at the market, the city passed a...

    A Michigan apple grower who posted on Facebook that he wouldn’t allow gay couples to get married at his farm filed a lawsuit against the city of East Lansing on Wednesday after he was shut out of an outdoor farmer’s market. The city said Stephen Tennes wasn’t invited back to the market because vendors must follow its civil rights ordinance, which bars discrimination. Tennes alleges that the city’s actions violate his rights to free speech and religion. Tennes’ farm, 22 miles away from East Lansing in Eaton County, is a popular place to have weddings. In a Facebook post in...

But this year – city officials told the devout Catholic family that their blueberries and sweet corn were not welcome at the farmer’s market – and neither were they. Last year, someone posted a message on Country Mill’s Facebook page inquiring about whether they hosted same-sex...
