Last week, Oregon's Bureau of Labor and Industry found "substantial evidence" that Gresham's Sweet Cakes By Melissa discriminated against a lesbian couple last February by refusing to make them a wedding cake. Aaron and Melissa Klein will now go through a mediation process which, if unsuccessful, may result in formal charges of discrimination.

The bakery, which was forced from its storefront in August, claimed making the cake would violate the owners' religious principles, though Sweet Cakes employees had given price quotes to WW for a pagan solstice cake, a divorce party cake and for party to celebrate a couple's second baby out of wedlock.

Some people are angry about this. About 100 of those people e-mailed BOLI to voice their complaints. To get a feel for the response, WW filed a public records request for emails containing "Stalin," "Klan," "Nazi," "KKK," "Heil" or "Commie." Here are some of those emails.

I just read where you investigated a bakery because of the Christian beliefs.

I know that you are only a stooge of the homosexual terrorists, but (and I'm assuming you can read), it looks like to me that your beloved heterophobes are targeting Christian business's just because the are people of faith.  That, Mr. Bigot, in and of itself is discrimination, but you and your anti-Christian thugs have chosen to be the mouth-piece and weapon with which these terrorists violate and abuse people of faith.

You are an ignorant liberal with no ability to think independently.

I think that you are even involved with the private matter involving the bakery and the lesbian couple that wanted a cake is disgusting - you are a Nazi organization and your department should be disbanded. I have many gay and lesbian friends that agree that what your doing is entirely inappropriate. I hope you all loose your jobs for this.

The BOLI is a bunch of jackasses.  Enjoy paying higher taxes to cover those that are now lost.

Another example of Nazi Liberalism.

Subject: Freedom of religious opinion

Oregon's constitution states the following in Section 3 of Article 1 of the Bill of Rights:

"Freedom of religious opinion. No law shall in any case whatever control the free exercise, and enjoyment of religious opinions, or interfere with the rights of conscience."

The above sounds ironclad. A person in Oregon can't be required (forced) to act contrary to his or her religious beliefs unless you decide not to bake a cake for a homosexual marriage.

The owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused, on religious grounds, to create a cake for a homosexual wedding in the same way that an owner of a printing company owned by blacks or Jews (or anybody for that matter) would most likely refuse to print signs and brochures for a KKK march. The KKK has the right to march, but no one should be forced to give support for the march.

One has to wonder if homosexual owners of a bakery would make a cake for anti-homosexual event. I wouldn't try to force them to bake such a cake. I would take my business elsewhere.

The homosexual couple could have gone to another bakery just like the KKK marchers could have gone to another print shop.

But Oregon and other states have created a new class of people based on a certain type of sexual behavior and they want us to comply with that behavior or be forced to pay stiff penalties:

"Under Oregon law, Oregonians may not be denied service based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The law provides an exemption for religious organizations and schools, but does not allow private business owners to discriminate based on sexual orientation, just as they cannot legally deny service based on race, sex, age, disability or religion. The investigation concludes that the bakery is not a religious institution under law and that the business' policy of refusing to make same-sex wedding cakes represents unlawful discrimination based on sexual orientation."

So not only are business owners forced to serve people who engage in sexual practices that they find repugnant, but their religious beliefs are also infringed upon. The Oregon Constitution does not include the phrase "only for religious organizations and schools." The law covers everybody in all situations.

The homosexuals who wanted a cake could have purchased any cake in the bakery. The owners only refused to supply a cake for what they believe is an immoral practice.

This is tyranny of the highest order. If a law can be rewritten in one case, it can be rewritten in other cases. No one is safe from the thought-crimes police that are running the highest levels of government.

Attn: Brad Avakian

Nazi in Charge

Herr Commandante,

We have become aware of your treatment of a small business who because of religious or personal beliefs refused to provide their services to other than hetrosexual individuals. Do the subjects of Oregon not have a right of choice?

We are also know that because of your agencies irresponsible treatment of the owners of this establishment (The Kleins) and the subsequent on slaught of hate and harassment by homosexuals, transgenders, pedophiles, hermaphrodites and necrophliacs has forced this hard working and decent family to close down their business.

Please note, I am as of this moment advising every individual I know either by phone or Facebook to avoid doing any type business of business while passing through your intolerant and hateful slice of Nazism which we on the west coast have the misfortune of having it attached to the rest of the west.

You may take your state and forcefully place it in your anal cavity where it belongs you worthless piece of walking excrement.

I look forward to your response.

Have a nice day !

Commissioner Avakian,

As you try your best to impose the state against Christian people,  please remember history and the defeat of similar opponents to Christ and His people; your friend Adolph Hitler and Jos Stalin to name the most recent. But it dates back two centuries of defeats of the "all powerful state", starting with Caesar and at that time Rome.

What really surprises me about your persecution of Sweet Cakes by Melissa is the fact that you are imposing something that not only goes against God and His commands, but against the very laws of nature. Have you not passed a 5th grade biology class or did your father forget to mention the "birds and the bees" to you?

If yes to one or both of these questions, you probably don't know when life begins. Hint: In the womb at Conception!

Mr. Avakian, you seem like an intelligent fellow (although I noticed from your bio that you attended public schools and colleges on the west coast. As you are aware, the best colleges are on the East coast). There is still opportunity for you to learn this basic biology.

Unfortunately, I think its your heart, not your head that is hard. I shall do my best (as a weak fallen Christian) to pray for your conversion.

God Bless you,

Jim Vari

In a free country, people would be free to do business with whomever they wished.

In a free country.

So much for Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian's statement that "The goal is never to shut down a business.

The goal is to rehabilitate  ( re-educate ) [those who are not on board with the gay agenda].”

I'm not on board with the Gay agenda, you going to send me to one of your gulags, one of your re-education centers? you bastards !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NAZI Bastards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First they wanted Tolerance.

Then Acceptance.

Now we must Embrace their depravity and sin.

Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian, NAZI Bastard, I guess only certain people have rights in Oregon.....stay the hell away from this shithole......

bviously it is not a part of the United States .....these people wipe their asses with our Constitution.....I don't have to serve anybody I don't want to serve, I don't have to associalte with anybody that I don't want to associate with......screw you Brad Avakian you friggin commie bastard.....

when are you going to open up you gulags Brad? your re-education centers Brad?

Seems that if this guy doesn't want to run a trans-sexual bar or a gay bar or even a muslim bar, that he shouldn't be forced to do so.And they should arrest men who go into women's restrooms.

Date: September 3, 2013 9:26:40 AM PDT

Mr. Brad Avakian, Commissioner,

Just because a Court misinterprets the US Constitution does not mean you are right.  Depriving anyone who owns a business of their right to do business according to their legitimate religious believes is an assault against the 1st Amendment.  They did not discriminate based on race.  If the KKK asked them to bake a cake and top the cake with a Swastika and write "We Hate Jews", would you force that business to do business if that was against their beliefs?  

You forget, our laws do not come from men, they come from Natural Law and God.  Yes, that is the foundation of a civil society and that is what our founding fathers modeled our constitution from.  Not petty bureaucrats and government tyrants from the progressive movement.  Dictates from government corrupts the notion that we are a civil society.  A civil society is one where the people take responsibility for their liberty and hold government in check.  You and your progressive dogma corrupt society by your elitist and "we know better" fantasy.  I hope this Court ruling gets appealed and justice is finally done according to the constitution.

Thank you.

Goddamned Marxist, Socialist, progressive , degenerate, perverted Nazi Bastards...

So much for Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian's statement that "The goal is never to shut down a business.

I'm not on board with the Gay agenda, you going to send me to one of your gulags, one of your re-education centers? you bastards !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What about Aaron and Melissa Klein's rights? dothey have any civil rights in Goddamned Oregon?

Is Oregon still in the United States?

NAZI Bastards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There has been a glorious victory for the rainbow army as it goosesteps toward utopia. Remember the bakery in Gresham, Oregon that was targeted by militant perverts for declining to participate in their blasphemous ceremonies? It has been forced to close its doors:

Aaron and Melissa Klein own and operate Sweet Cakes by Melissa. In the past few months, they've faced heated scrutiny — some in the form of physical threats — from those in the gay-rights crowd who decried their May refusal to bake for a lesbian couple who wanted to marry.

The Kleins cited their Christian beliefs of traditional marriage when they turned down that business gig, The Blaze reported. But the lesbian couple filed a complaint with the state, accusing the shop owners of discrimination.

Since, they've been hounded by vicious telephone calls and emails.

Some of those threats were shocking. One emailer wished for the couple's children to fall ill. Another expressed hope that Mr. Klein should be shot and even raped, The Blaze reported.

And yet another wrote: "Here's hoping you go out of business, you bigot."

The couple said on top of that, their vendors were "badgered and harassed" into stopping all associations with the bakery.

The Kleins say they're now closing up their doors and moving their operations to their home. Their business, they say, has suffered a serious revenue hit from the unexpected activism and backlash.

So much for Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian's statement that "The goal is never to shut down a business. The goal is to rehabilitate [those who are not on board with the gay agenda]."

But I don't bother pushing back against homosexual fascism, because I don't own a bakery. Plus I'm afraid someone might call me a homophobe.

Religious freedom is not the only thing under attack.
