Bakery That Refused Cake for Lesbian Wedding Forced to Close.

Tolerance is a laudable virtue, and should probably be practised more by most of us.  However, have you ever noticed how often those who shout most loudly for tolerance of their particular point of view, or beliefs, or lifestyle, are the most intolerant of any who have the temerity to disagree with them?

According to The Christian Post, a Christian couple who owns a bakery in Gresham, Oregon, has succumbed to what legal analysts call "economic terrorism" by gay advocates. Earlier this year, the couple refused to bake a cake for a lesbian "marriage ceremony", citing their Christian beliefs. The bakery, Sweet Cakes by Melissa, closed this weekend; the owners, Aaron and Melissa Klein, saying that they no longer wanted to operate their business after the harassment they and their regular clients have been enduring because of that decision. Homosexual/lesbian advocates have been picketing the business, making harassing phone calls to the bakery's vendors and partners, and encouraging the boycott of the business on social media channels.

Aaron Klein had said in June. "These people have literally tried to cut any business ties off, through harassment."

A note posted on the door of the closed building on Sunday read: "This fight is not over. We will continue to stand strong. Your Religious Freedom is becoming not Free any more. This is ridiculous that we cannot practice our faith. The LORD is good and we will continue to serve Him with all our heart."

In an interview with Fox News, Aaron Klein explained that he doesn't have a problem serving homosexuals; he just can't support homosexual weddings. "I believe marriage is between a man and a woman ... I don't want to be ambiguous in what I stand for." The couple also suggested a double standard exists between the "tolerance" these advocates proclaim and the harassing behaviour they were subjected to because of their faith.
