The owners of Sweet Cakes bakery were at the center of a firestorm a few years ago when they declined to bake a cake for a gay wedding because it clashed with their faith. Now, they’ve been forced to close shop.

Family bakery closes after left-wing bullies finally get their pound of cake
In 2013 a small family bakery in Northwestern Oregon refused to make a cake for a lesbian wedding.
The owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa had no idea that their decision to follow the teachings of their Christian faith would lead to a multi-year legal battle. It’s a battle still being waged.
Aaron and Melissa Klein were eventually punished by the state of Oregon. — The couple was fined $135,000 for refusing to participate in the lesbian wedding event.
It was the price they had to pay for refusing to violate their conscience.
They also made the painful decision to close their beloved bakery – for good.
The left-wing bigots and bullies finally got their pound of cake.
That is just sad. And maddening. And outrageous.
These people did nothing wrong and their lives were destroyed.
