Christian Cake Bakers Bankrupted by State

Administrative law judge recommends that Christian cake bakers be fined $135,000 for not baking a same-sex wedding cake.

Looks like the main ingredient used in Oregon administrative law judge Alan McCullough’s recipes is one hundred percent pure manure.

The Daily Signal reports,

An Oregon administrative law judge recommended today that the bakers who refused to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding should be fined $135,000.

“[T]he forum concludes that $75,000 and $60,000, are appropriate awards to compensate [the same-sex couple] for the emotional suffering they experienced,” wrote Alan McCullough, administrative law judge for Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries in his proposed order.

Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa located in Gresham, Ore., say the fine is enough to potentially bankrupt their family of seven.

The dispute began in January 2013, when Aaron denied Rachel Cryer a wedding cake after learning there would be two brides in her wedding.

Aaron and his wife Melissa are both Christians and believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

Rachel and her partner Laurel Bowman-Cryer, who are now married, filed a complaint with the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries under the state’s public accommodation law, which bans discrimination based on a person’s sexual orientation.

When the State establishes injustice by fiat—using bogus and completely unproved claims of “emotional suffering” (now there’s some high-proof, wretchedly aromatic male bovine droppings!)—you can guarantee the evil is just getting rolling. This is not about a cake—this is about God-hating people out to punish anyone who would dare confirm what their own conscience tells them all the time.

Step back for a moment: This terrible “suffering” was caused because someone politely declined to bake a cake. Whoa! Give me a moment to tell the families of beheaded Christians just how terrible these ladies have it; I’m sure they’ll gasp in horror.

Imagine the suffering these ladies must endure when the dryer breaks at home! Or there is a power-failure. Or… (gasp)… a restaurant tells them they’re out of peanut butter! Clearly they never heard a parent teach them about right and wrong, or tell them “no,” so I can understand this grave distress.

Wait… I feel it… reading about this decision, and completely unjust and punitive fine, has inflicted immeasurable “emotional suffering” upon me—can I sue? Oh, right… my “class” is only protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, and we all know no politician or judge pays attention to that old relic anymore.
