Must be gawds plan 😉

PORTLAND, Ore. – On Friday, an administrative law judge proposed that the owners of an Oregon bakery pay $135,000 to a lesbian couple refused service more than two years ago.

The judge, Alan McCullough, ruled in January that Sweet Cakes by Melissa discriminated against Laurel and Rachel Bowman-Cryer by refusing to bake them a wedding cake.

The bakers cited their religious beliefs. The case is one that has been referenced in the national debate over religious freedom and discrimination against the LGBT community.

Friday’s proposed order dealt with the award for emotional suffering.

The maximum penalty that could have been assessed was $150,000, or $75,000 per person. Judge McCullough awarded $60,000 in damages to Laurel Bowman-Cryer and $75,000 in damages to Rachel Bowman-Cryer.

    Freedom of religion with its Biblical convictions is being trampled on by leftist judges. The media portrays Christians negatively for having Biblical convictions. Activist homosexual folks seem to often intimidate and threaten financial ruin to force their views on others. There are many bakery operators that hold secular views and a homosexual couple could have walked out of Klein’s bakery and located another one. No, they have to have the vindictive attitude and force their lifestyle upon others. Go Fund Me canceled the fund raiser: another anti-Christian stance.
