From the Right Scoop:
Christian Persecution is alive and well in the fascist state of Oregon, where the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa [have] just been fined $135,000 for not making a cake for a lesbian couple’s wedding.
But not only that, now the state of Oregon is trying to silence them from even talking about it, using Oregon law as their justification.
Here is the what an Oregon Overseer, by name of Brad Avakian, occupying the office of Oregon Labor Commissioner, handed down upon dangerous bakers Aaron and Melissa Klein:
The Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries hereby orders (the Kleins) to cease and desist from publishing, circulating, issuing or displaying, or causing to be published . . . any communication to the effect that any of the accommodations . . . will be refused, withheld from or denied to, or that any discrimination be made against, any person on account of their sexual orientation."
Why, how dare these people -- the Kleins -- think outside the tiny secular box imposed by Oregon fanatics holding state office. And, my word, we can't let renegade bakers actually express themselves in public! So, shut up, dangerous bakers.
"Fortunately, Aaron and Melissa Klein aren’t going to be silenced and aren’t giving up the fight," the Right Scoop writes, and then quotes this from the Kleins' Facebook page:
The final ruling has been made today. We have been charged with $135,000 in emotional damages, But also now Aaron has been charged with advertising. (Basically talking about not wanting to participate in a same-sex wedding)
This effectively strips us of all our first amendment rights. According to the state of Oregon we neither have freedom of religion or freedom of speech.
We will NOT give up this fight, and we will NOT be silenced.
We stand for God’s truth, God’s word and freedom for ALL americans. We are here to obey God not man, and we will not conform to this world. If we were to lose everything it would be totally worth it for our Lord who gave his one and only son, Jesus, for us! God will win this fight!
The Kleins are correct to reject Oregon fascism paraded and laundered as law. To be human is to act into history in both word and deed, across the whole of life, both public and private.
This is the Kleins' moral, legal, constitutional, human, and existential right. But an ugly dictate stands in the way.
Why stand in the way? Because elements within the state of Oregon are at war with the Creator who has endowed human beings with certain unalienable rights, among them "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
Homosex "marriage" is a counterfeit as phony as Monopoly money. The Kleins are to be praised for refusing to bow to homosex phoniness and for resisting Oregon state fascism.
Shame on you, official Oregon. For your hate, bigotry, and fascism.
Bravo to Aaron and Melissa Klein. For your love, tolerance, and freedom.
