Oregon couple who refused “gay wedding” cake fined $135,000, ordered silenced July 7, 2015

Wow.  It’s so funny when our adversaries on the Left tell us there is no persecution, that Christians continue to enjoy all manner of benefits and are surely free to speak their minds as openly as anyone else.  Yeah, because just about everyone is getting fined the cost of a small house and ordered never to speak about certain topics by powerful government apparatchiks.  Certainly this happens to left wingers all the time, right?  Can’t you remember that radical sodomite group getting thrown in jail just the other day for public lewdness in one of their parades of decadence and self-loathing?  Yeah……..neither can I.

Anyway, the very pro-sodomy Oregon official who has made a career out of crushing a rural Oregon Christian couple has finalized his decision on the exhorbitant fine they faced (he is enforcing it in full), and slapped them with a gag order on the subject.  Oh the land, of the FREE, and the home, of the sodomites………

Not content with trampling freedom of religion, Oregon authorities have now turned to freedom of speech, issuing a gag order to the Christian owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa forbidding them from speaking or writing about their Christian beliefs regarding same-sex marriage.

On Thursday, Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian upheld a preliminary finding that sentenced Aaron and Melissa Klein, the Christian bakers who refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding, to a fine of $135,000 in emotional damages to the homosexual couple they denied service, but also added a new provision forbidding them to speak about their unwillingness to serve a gay marriage. [And this decision is final. There is really no avenue of appeal in these kinds of “administrative law courts,” where government bureaucrats serve as judge, jury, and executioner.  It won’t be long before it comes to that.  This is what tyranny looks like. The Founding Fathers revolted for a heckuva lot less than this.]

The couple had accused the Kleins of “mental rape,” adding that they had suffered a “loss of appetite” and “impaired digestion,” which remarkably led to “weight gain.” [And thus we can see how the poor sick lost group of people HAS to have their fantasy rationalization maintained constantly and at all costs. ANY rebuke or contradiction injures their rationalization and causes pangs of doubt and regret for their perversion, which they then channel into anger and outrage – whatever it takes, so long as the rationalization for their sin can be maintained.]

Twisting the actual facts of the case, Avakian declared that the bakers had refused the couple service because they were lesbians, which is demonstrably false, since they happily served other homosexuals who were not seeking a gay wedding cake. [You don’t get it!  ANY failure to constantly lionize, extol, and purt’ near worship these people for their wonderful, glorious sin is, to them, tantamount to the gravest evil. And they will make YOU comply.  There have been several opinions surface since the disastrous, apparently universe-altering Supreme Court decision that failure to acquiesce to sodomite advances is evidence of punishable bigotry.  How that squares with having to have a legal form for each step of heterosexual contact I fail to comprehend. The old joke about sodomy being legal being fine so long as it doesn’t become mandatory is no longer funny]

“This case is not about a wedding cake or a marriage,” Avakian wrote. “It is about a business’s refusal to serve someone because of their sexual orientation. Under Oregon law, that is illegal.” [That statement is laughably false. It’s about refusing to be forced to take part in an action that is morally reprehensible. But the rationalization demands such leaps of illogic all the time]

The Oregon official imposed a gag order on the couple, mandating that they “cease and desist” from speaking publicly about not wanting to bake cakes for same-sex weddings based on their Christian beliefs…….. [He’s basically declaring Christians are not welcome in Oregon, or even more, are illegal in Oregon. At least so far as making ANY public declaration of their faith.]

………“This effectively strips us of all our First Amendment rights,” wrote the Kleins on their Facebook page. “According to the state of Oregon we neither have freedom of religion or freedom of speech.”

You think you live in a democracy?  You think this country has any future?  Increasingly, the unaccountable and lawless government at all levels is speaking very clearly.  Sodomites are wonderful, preferred people.  Christians are horrible, awful people we really don’t want here.  That view is a perfect inversion of all that is right and decent. It has become the default view of our self-anointed governing elites.

This nation is bringing a curse down on itself, and all that is left is for it to play out.  It will end in a nightmare of blood and bitter hatred, unless by some miracle this process of sexularization is stopped.  That’s what we’re down to, now, praying for a miracle or for the strength to withstand the coming blood persecution.  Barring that miracle, this nation as presently construed is finished.

Here’s a final question for anyone from Oregon (I don’t know if JB still reads): have any priests or bishops in Oregon publicly come to the defense of this couple?  Has the Church reached out to them with strong support and charity for their cause and their suffering?  We always hear about solidarity for the oppressed in the post-conciliar Church, well, here is a young family being brutally oppressed…….has any official solidarity been expressed for them?  Given that they are obviously devout in their beliefs, could not such solidarity and even concrete aid possibly result in their conversion, which should be the ultimate goal of every action the Church takes?

I would be shocked that they could not appeal to the judicial branch (executive branch administrative agency decisions are usually appealable to some court). Not that they would fare much better.

You’re right. I misread the situation. They have no further recourse within the state of Oregon, but they may be able to go to federal court over it.

Here’s a small part of the laundry list of alleged complaints the two lesbians listed to arrive at the ludicrous settlement of $135,000:

Examples of symptoms included “acute loss of confidence,” “doubt,” “excessive sleep,” “felt mentally raped, dirty and shameful,” “high blood pressure,” “impaired digestion,” “loss of appetite,” “migraine headaches,” “pale and sick at home after work,” “resumption of smoking habit,” “shock,” “stunned,” “surprise,” “uncertainty,” “weight gain” and “worry.”

All that came from being told, indirectly, that their perversion is wrong. Heck……it’d almost be worth it to me to have that kind of effect on people so lost. Hello……if experiencing a tiny rebuke causes you to go into an emotional tailspin of 2+ years duration, then you’ve got massive problems to begin with. Of course, a lot of it is probably made up, just seeking excuses to exercise revenge, but, then again…….it might be true. In which case, we can see how brittle those lost in this kind of sin really are. No wonder they demand complete, 100% affirmation of everything they do.

Reminds of Mel Gibson in “The Patriot”…..”tell me why I should trade 1 tyrant 3000 miles away for 3000 tyrants 1 mile away?”

Now the question is, how can we boycott Oregon?

This goes into the legality of the order in more depth:

If I understand this correctly- saying that you won’t bake a cake in the future is the same as not baking the cake in the first place. It’ls subtle, and we can disagree,but worth a read, if only to see what the law actually says.

Someone in the comments noted that the Kleins can say they disagree with the decision of the state, they can even advertise themselves as the bakery that didn’t bake a cake, but they can’t say they won’t do so in the future. (see above).

I did see that. I think it’s very weak. That being the case, the Church has no right to speak against sodo-marriage now and to proclaim she won’t perform them, that being the denial of a public “service.”

IF that is really constitutional, the Constitution is even more deranged than I thought.

TG - July 8, 2015

I don’t think it the Constitution that’s deranged. It’s the judge interrupting it.
