Oregon AG Investigates Baker´s
Refusal to Make Wedding Cake
for Lesbians

The Oregon attorney general’s office is investigating a Portland-area bakery after a lesbian couple filed a complaint alleging that the owner discriminated against them when he declined to make a wedding cake for their same-sex “marriage.” Aaron Klein, who owns and operates Sweet Cakes by Melissa bakery along with his wife in Gresham, Ore., said he received notice of the complaint last week from the Oregon Department of Justice. The complaint stems from an incident which occurred Jan. 17, when a woman came in with her mother to test wedding cakes.

Comments:
Here´s just another example that we no longer live in a free country. This is what happens when leftists and anti-discrimination laws go out of control.

Wow, we should all move to Oregon.

Cleary, they have so few unsolved crimes in Oregon that the Attorney General´s office can waste valuable resources on investigating a businessman that chose not to do business with a potential client.

It must be paradise there. All pretty rainbows and sweet-smelling unicorn farts. That should become the new state motto for Oregon...

Manning said that while Oregon does not sanction same-sex marriage, it is against Oregon law for “a public accommodation” to refuse to do business with a customer on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

Has this law ever been tested before the courts? I would think it would violate the freedom of association provision of the Bill of Rights.

This reminds me of the 1960s, when private owners of restaurants refused to serve colored patrons. The private owner´s rules for his business were declared unconstitutional, and he had to serve all. I imagine this bakery business will be treated similarly.

I would sell a wedding cake the same as selling donuts, why make a stand where you don´t need to make one? Don´t run a bakery if you have to worry about what kind of customer you´re selling to. Read I Corinthians 8 - 11. To refuse a customer based on his/her belief system is legalism.

Get a life - are there not more important things for the AG to be doing? If someone does not want to sell you a cake - go somewhere where they will.

I fully support this gentleman.God bless him for sticking to his beliefs.
I´m with #4, why didn´t those scissor sisters just go to another bakery? Im sure Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland would be thrilled to bake a lesbian cake... And they would put bacon on it,too!
Why are lesbians always so angry?

The fact that she bought and paid for a previous cake for her heterosexual mother is immaterial. I´m no lawyer, but I know that much.

This was always the goal behind the push to normalize same sex marriage. To sue anyone who objects to the lifestyle, especially religious people.

#7 has the correct answer. The mother came back and tried to calm the situation down and the baker only made it worse. Really bad decision on the baker´s part.

It´s not just baking a wedding cake - the baker has to participate in the reception. He has to take the cake there to set up the table pattern and put the tiers on.

Not the same as just selling a donut.

So just make them an ugly, tasteless, cake and wish them the best of luck. If an artists, and cake decorators are artists, heart isn´t in the project it will not turn out well. Besides you know that someone who would go to court over this wasn´t going to pay for the cake anyway. They would have found something to be dissatisfied with, and the baker would have had to eat the cost.

When the baker learned that the cake was for a same-sex wedding, all he had to do was triple the price quote.

They would have either walked out, or bought the cake, and the baker could donate the excess to a charity of his choice.

Perhaps a compromise is in order.

In the future, the baker will prepare cakes for hot supermodel-type lesbians, but not for flannel-shirt truckdriver-wallet lesbians.

I can´t believe how nasty some of these posts are. People here are advocating purposely sabotaging their wedding just because they are PREJUDICED against these women who are different than themselves. Yes, prejudiced..negatively, i.e. bigoted.

I suppose then it is alright if an atheist intentionally put extra salt or somehow sabotaged a Christian wedding cake, right? Or charged them 3 times what they would charge someone else? Or maybe refuse service to conservatives...what do you think? Listen to yourselves. Yes, my first reaction was "whatever happened to right to refuse service"?...but then I thought about it and realized that this had much larger implications. I don´t want to go back to the days of segregation and overt bigotry--especially knowing how the leftist have become so intent on wiping our conservatives. We will be the ones suffering in the end.

If an atheist didn´t want to serve a Christian, the Christian would not raise a fuss or sue. The Christian would just find someone else to buy the cake from. The nasty comments are against this woman trying to force someone to cater to her even though they have a religious reason not to. She is the nasty one. She deserves the negative comments.

Pay attention to the real point here, folks. If you don´t think same-sex attraction is just fine and dandy, you´re (CAPS ON) PREJUDICED! (caps off). Morality is so, you know, bigoted. And SSA is just the same as skin color. And you black people who find that offensive, well, you´re PREJUDICED! too.

Facebook removes my post about

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it.

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
