It’s truly a sad day in America when a Christian is no longer allowed to practice their faith without fear of losing their home, assets and everything they own.
It’s also a clear sign that flaming liberals who preach tolerance are the most intolerant people of all. They don’t want equality or tolerance, rather they want to suppress everyone who holds a different view than they do. They don’t want freedom as they claim, rather they want tyrannical and dictatorial control over everyone.
Several years ago, Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Gresham, Oregon, turned down a request from two lesbians who wanted them to make their wedding cake. The Klein’s explained that their Christian faith would not allow them to participate in something the Bible called a sin. They even recommended another bakery in town.
Instead of being as tolerant as they want others to be, the lesbians ran crying to the state and filed a discriminatory lawsuit against them. Once the lawsuit had been filed and made public, homosexuals from all over the area, state and nation began a campaign of harassment against the Kleins for being so intolerant.
Melissa loved her bakery and being part of special occasions in the lives of others, but her Christian faith was more important than her business. Consequently, the Kleins made the hardest decision of their lives and closed their bakery. They said they weren’t forced to close the doors but it was their decision so that they would not be placed in the same situation again, however, they are taking orders online. After closing the doors to their bakery, the Kleins posted a graphic on the Sweet Cakes by Melissa Facebook page that quotes Joshua 24:15:
