“Sweet Cakes” Closes On A Sour Note

sweet-cakes-has-closedSweet Cakes by Melissa, the Christian business sued by a lesbian couple after declining to bake them a wedding cake, has closed their doors. The owners cited the devastating legal fees as the reason for the closure.

The Oregon bakery that made news after it refused to make a cake for a lesbian couple’s wedding has closed after legal battles left the business financially devastated. Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes By Melissa, have shut down their bakery.

CNS News reported that the couple was left ‘financially crippled’ following their legal battle with Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer.

In 2013, the Kleins refused to make a cake for the Bowman-Cryers when they discovered the wedding was for a same-sex couple. The bakers said their refusal was prompted by religious beliefs.

After being denied, the Bowman-Cryers filed a complaint with the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries. In 2015, the Kleins paid $135,000 in state-ordered damages – after refusing to do so for nearly six months.

In Obama’s America you can lose your business for standing up for your beliefs; especially if those beliefs clash with the current liberal opinions. This administration does not care about your religious beliefs. You will be made to care, or you will suffer the consequences.

  1. This needs to go on Facebook, twitter, etc. Should definitely garner more votes for Trump since Hilz and O are so anti-small business. Obama is probably penning a letter to Kleins telling them “you didn’t build that” so no big deal. To think that we may have four more years of big government encroachment into our lives scares the crap out of me.

  2. Metoo – AT LEAST four more years. Even if Hillary loses, Obama will pardon the lot of them.

    TXNick – I see what you did there.

    RG – I see what you did, too!

  3. This isn’t what freedom is. The business owner should be free to run the business the way they want and the customers should be free to shop elsewhere. This is what life under Madam President Pickles will resemble.

    1. If what I read is true, the women sought out this business, knowing they’d be turned away, so they could sue, punch the Christ-lovers in the nose, get some publicity & destroy the business. Mission accomplished.
