DAYS OF LOT – Christian bakery guilty of violating lesbian couples’ civil rights

The owners of a Christian bakery who refused to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple are facing hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines after they were found guilty of violating the couple’s civil rights. The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries said they found “substantial evidence” that Sweet Cakes by Melissa discriminated against the lesbian couple and violated the Oregon Equality Act of 2007, a law that protects the rights of the LGBT community. Last year, the bakery’s owners refused to make a wedding cake for Rachel Cryer and Laurel Bowman, of Portland, citing their Christian beliefs. The couple then filed a complaint with the state. “The investigation concludes that the bakery is not a religious institution under the law and that the business’ policy of refusing to make same-sex wedding cakes represents unlawful discrimination based on sexual orientation,” said Charlie Burr, a spokesman for the Bureau of Labor and Industries.
The backlash against Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of the bakery, was severe. Gay rights groups launched protests and pickets outside the family’s store. They threatened wedding vendors who did business with the bakery. And, Klein told me, the family’s children were the targets of death threats. The family eventually had to close their retail shop and now operate the bakery out of their home. They posted a message vowing to stand firm in their faith. It read, in part: “To all of you that have been praying for Aaron and I, I want to say thank you. I know that your prayers are being heard. I feel such a peace with all of this that is going on. Even though there are days that are hard and times of struggle we still feel that the Lord is in this. It is His fight and our situation is in His hands….Please continue to pray for our family. God is great, amazing and all powerful. I know He has a plan.” Under state law, the complaint against the bakery now moves into a period of reconciliation. If they can’t reach an agreement, formal civil charges could be filed and the Kleins could face hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. More

    When I got to the part about the children getting death threats, I began to wonder where the feds were at…That is where the rubber meets the road, and behavior such as that should never be tolerated. If their family is being targeted for Christian beliefs and threatened, then it becomes a hate crime.

  2. It is in the YHVH, our Creator and by this couples’ faithfullness, l believe many will take courage and also stand up for their Christian Faith. YHVH will greatly bless this couple and in due course they will prosper beyond their greatest imagination as YHVH always rewards those who are faithful to HIM and to the word of GOD, SHALOM

    Forcing a business to work for you when they do not want to is absurd, a business owner is responsible to choose who he wants to work for, not the government. This is nothing more than the homosexuals driving their perverted agenda on the public through so called legal means (which has also become perverted).

    At one time a buiseness could refuse to serve anyone for any reason. Now we are seeing that government wants, not just our allegiance and patriotism, but our very souls.
    Daniel 1:8, “But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile himself this way.”
