Baker Refuses Cake for Fake Wedding

"An Oregon man may have broken the law and is facing a state investigation after refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding, KATU reports.

KGW has details on the story:

It started on Jan. 17 when a mother and daughter showed up at Sweet Cakes by Melissa looking for the perfect wedding cake.

“My first question is what’s the wedding date,” said owner Aaron Klein. “My next question is bride and groom’s name … the girl giggled a little bit and said it’s two brides.”

Klein apologized to the women and told them he and his wife do not make cakes for same-sex marriages. Klein said the women were disgusted and walked out.

“I believe that marriage is a religious institution ordained by God,” said Klein. “A man should leave his mother and father and cling to his wife … that to me is the beginning of marriage.”


“I’d rather have my kids see their dad stand up for what he believes in then to see him bow down because one person complained....."

Once again, this is how the Leftist thugs work. You never know if you will be the next person who gets picked out for abuse, control, and prosecution.

Mr.Klein, we are told, must suck it up and put hours of labor and effort into making a cake for a fake wedding or face essentially forfeit his right to run the bakery. Like being forced to pay for abortion pills, we are told that, once you engage in business, you give up all rights to stand up for what you believe. Not only that, but you must accept the business of  any participants, no matter how their specifications may go against your principles.

Applying this reasoning, atheists will now be able to make Jewish or Christian bakers make cakes with writing that denies the existence of God.

It's the new price of doing business - your dignity.

One must keep in mind that governments do not have creative powers. They cannot bring rights into existence. The State is given the power to regulate and protect institutions such as marriage to prevent abuses. These would include underage brides, one spouse who is still legally married to another, etc.

Marriage existed long before any government; therefore a government cannot,despite any legislative hoop-jumping, create the legality of a marriage that, by its very nature, cannot exist. Any law that presents itself as such is nothing more than play-acting by the State.

I once believed that the primary reason for using statutory powers to pretend that same-sex marriages exist was to destroy the family  While I still believe that this is the primary purpose for some, I have come to think that others have a more insidious purpose for this.

-The purpose is to establish full governmental control of society and all of its people.

Think about it. If the State can force people to act as if a government can bring the impossible into existence, and force everyone to go along with it, then what is it incapable of doing or forcing? If a society accepts that the State can conjure up institutions by going through the motions of making laws, what can stop them from removing rights or creating others that infringe on the Liberties of the rest of the people?

If this poor baker loses his license, is convicted by the State and/or is successfully sued civilly, rest assured that the next step will be to insist that Churches perform these fake ceremonies or give up their right to have their marriage ceremonies acknowledged by the State. That being done, couples will have to go to a Municipal Clerk after or just before a Church wedding in order to have the marriage recognized by the government.

Again, I hold that it is time to split the Republic into two separate entities. Let the Progressives run their side into the ground.

    Totally agree at this point.
