Evidently the Oregon Bureau of Labor And Industries have ruled that an Oregon Bakery owned by a couple who refused to do a cake for a homosexual wedding has made their ruling. They have ruled that ‘Sweet Cakes by Melissa’ has discriminated against a homosexual couple and violated their civil rights. Oregon say’s that it’s discrimination based on sexual orientation. They give a pass to religious organizations but not businesses. What’s ironic is this same law they are touting also say’s no discrimination based on religious beliefs. Hello!
They posted on facebook that they were just awaiting news on the fine. They also thanked everyone for their support, & said this:
“ I know that your prayers are being heard. I feel such a peace with all of this that is going on. Even though there are days that are hard and times of struggle we still feel that the Lord is in this. It is His fight and our situation is in His hands.”
It’s not a matter of discrimination, it’s a matter of destroying Christian Businesses. How fast do you think a lawsuit would have been thrown out if this couple were Muslim? It would never had made it past the prosecutor. God does have this, He will prevail.
Isaiah 45:2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
They have come under scrutiny from many, and they have held their ground. They have stood up for God’s laws and words, and have been persecuted. What happened to a business has the right to refuse service to anyone? What happened to the religious freedom rights? They are doing the same things to Christians as they say are being done to them. Forcing their beliefs on others. They are bullying, tormenting, & intimidating in order to get what they want. Regardless of what anyone else wants or believes. I saw this on their facebook page and had to share it, it is so true.
