Oregon Bakers Appeal Ruling Against Their Religious Rights


Oregon bakery owners who declined to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding ceremony are now appealing a court order to pay $135,000 in fines.

Aaron and Melissa Klein have been facing a legal battle since they took a stand for their faith three years ago.

The damages were awarded last July, but the Kleins have now filed a brief with the Oregon Court of Appeals.

The couple’s attorney says the state’s Bureau of Labor violated the Kleins’ rights to freedom of expression, freedom of religion and due process.

The Kleins say their decision not to bake a gay wedding cake was prompted by their Christian belief that marriage is the union of a man and a woman.

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
