The Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgenders and Questioning or LGBTQ, for short, are now one of the main political special interest groups in the public’s eye and are always pushing for more influence in our culture — even to the point of using the courts to force their agenda.
By attacking Christian businesses that refuse them service, they are sending a strong message to other Christians to keep their beliefs to themselves and buckle under to their demands.
From Allen B. West:
Rachel Bowman-Cryer and her mother visited Sweetcakes planning to order a wedding cake. Bowman-Cryer had purchased a cake previously from [Sweetcakes business owners] the Kleins for her mother’s sixth wedding. Bowman-Cryer wanted to have the same cake she had purchased for her mother. That’s when Aaron Klein asked what the name of the bride and groom were.
“It’s two brides,” Bowman-Cryer said.
That answer led to a complaint with the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries, and what happened as a result? As the Conservative Tribune reported, in 2013, Oregon Democrat Brad Avakian, as commissioner of the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries, put a bakery out of business because its owners stood up for their religious convictions.
Sweetcakes by Melissa, owned by Melissa and Aaron Klein, was forced out of business by Avakian and the BOLI in 2013. Klein told Independent Journal Review that they were fined $135,000 and the state garnished their bank accounts to cover it. When all was said and done, Klein said that the state took $144,000 from them.
Well, here’s a big slice of justice.
The man responsible for putting the bakery out of business, Brad Avakian, was voted out in this last election on November 8 and replaced with arepublican.
Allen B. West continues:
Rob Kremer, an Oregon political analyst, told the Review: “I think people in Oregon were uncomfortable with Avakian’s stated objective of expanding the scope of the Secretary of State’s office to broaden a progressive agenda. “While I don’t think the Sweetcakes by Melissa case was the only thing that turned off voters, it was certainly an example people could point to to show that he was abusing his authority.”
In addition to the voters, of all the major newspapers in the very blue state, not a single one offered Avakian its endorsement.
Aaron Klein told the Review: “His losing was a good sign that people don’t agree with somebody who is anti-constitutional to the nth degree. He never recognized our religious constitutional rights in his office. He just ignored them. And then he went off-kilter with ideas about what he wanted to do in his new office.”
Maybe, the liberal agenda has reached the point where most Americans are fed up with it’s authoritarian and intolerant bullying and are ready to push back!
