Fox News is reporting that the fascist state of Oregon is ramping up its persecution campaign against Christian bakers who declined to bake a wedding cake for a same sex lesbian couple. Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, have been told that if they don’t pay the $135,000 awarded to the lesbian couple who sued them, a lien will be placed against their home next week.
Speaking to Todd Starnes of Fox News, Klein said that the case in on appeal and the couple is worried that if they win the appeal, they will never get their money back. ” “This is intimidation and bullying – that’s exactly what it is,” Klein said.
The fascist state of Orgeon has also placed a gag order on the Kleins that makes it illegal for them to talk openly about their desire to participate and profit from same sex weddings through their small business:
“The Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries hereby orders [Aaron and Melissa Klein] 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,” [Administrative Law Judge Alan] Avakian wrote.
The Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage in all 50 states is not the endgame, and it was never intended to be. Legalizing same sex marriage was always meant to be the beginning, the weapon necessary for the Left and their media allies to punish and persecute Christians and the Church.
Although there is a First Amendment protecting the Religious, fascist states like Oregon are using the sheep’s clothing of “tolerance” to legalize intolerance, bigotry, and the marginalization of Christians. Either Christians are bullied and terrorized and threatened by the state into violating their conscience, or they will be fined and harassed out of business and into the shadows.
ObamaCare demands nuns violate their conscience and purchase birth control. Gay marriage demands Christian business owners violate their conscience and participate in and profit from the sacrementalization of sin.
The Gaystapo Left doesn’t give a damn about gays anymore than they care about the millions of blacks they’ve condemned to the despair and dependence of the welfare state.
The endgame is power and control, and the Christian church is in their way.
