Franklin Graham on Sweet Cakes Issue
Homosexuals all the time say that allowing homosexuality, and homosexual marriage won’t affect anyone outside of the homosexual community. As you can see by the story that has been unfolding for some time this isn’t so at all.
Franklin Graham made a comment today about the issue and what it means to Christians in America.
This is unbelievable! Remember Aaron and Melissa Klein, the Christian bakery owners in Oregon who were prosecuted by the state for refusing to participate in a same-sex marriage by baking a wedding cake? Friday, Brad Avakian, Oregon’s Bureau of Labor & Industries Commissioner, upheld the ruling that the Kleins have to pay the lesbian couple $135,000 for a long list of alleged damages including: “acute loss of confidence,” “high blood pressure,” “impaired digestion,” “loss of appetite,” “migraine headaches,” “pale and sick at home after work,” “resumption of smoking habit,” “weight gain,” and “worry.” Give me a break. In my opinion, this couple should pay the Kleins $135,000 for all they’ve been through! Even more outrageous is that Avakian has also now ordered the Kleins to “cease and desist” from speaking publicly about not wanting to bake cakes for same-sex weddings based on their Christian beliefs. This is an outright attack on their #freedomofspeech. A senior attorney with the The Heritage Foundation was absolutely right when he said, “It is exactly this kind of oppressive persecution by government officials that led the pilgrims to America.” Hear what the Kleins have to say in this video and article. Pray for them as they appeal the ruling and for other Christians experiencing discrimination because of their faith right here in “the land of the free.”
One thing missing from the list that I noted on the The Daily Signal website was the homosexuals claim of being raped:
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.”
This is a reason why you have to pay close attention to what the politicians in your state are passing for laws. If you don’t then you could be the next victim.
The law used to attack these good Christian people was http://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/659A.403
You have to be careful as well to what revisions are being made to laws that are already on the books. Laws that were meant to keep people from discriminating against someone due to their race, or gender, have now been altered to make it a violation for you to deny someone service based on your religious beliefs about homosexuality being wrong.
