The Odegaards tell their story this week on FOT

Dick and Betty Odgaard
Most folks in the Central Iowa area – as well as many around the nation – know who Betty and Richard Odgaard are; the Menonite owners of Gӧrtz Haus Gallery in Grimes, Iowa, who declined to allow their facility to be used for a same-sex wedding ceremony.  As a result, a complaint was filed with the Iowa Civil Rights Commission and in the face of increasing legal fees they settled the case and were then forced to close their business.

This, of course, was not unprecedented. Bakers, florists, photographers across the nation have been fined and forced to close their businesses, not because they refuse to serve homosexual clients, but because they refuse to take part in a ceremony that celebrates sodomy.
This week on FOT, the Odgaards will tell their story to Deacon Mike Manno and Gina Noll: what happened to them and what they are doing now to continue to oppose the unnatural pairing of men with men and women with women.
Join Deacon Mike and Gina this and every Tuesday at 9 a.m. (rebroadcast at 9 p.m.) on Iowa Catholic Radio 1150 AM; 88.5 & 94.5 FM and streaming on
