Oregon Bakery That Refused To Make Cake For Same-Sex Wedding Closes Up Shop

In the month of January- Couple walks into Sweet Cakes by Melissa wanting a cake for a same-sex wedding. Owner says, sorry we don't do cakes for gay marriages citing religious belief. The couple gets their cake somewhere else but that wasn't enough, they file a complaint with the Oregon state Bureau of Labor and Industries.

The owners say they were inundated for months with hateful messages, phone calls and emails for their refusal

They announced this weekend that they were closing the shop for good.

Goodbye 1st Amendment Freedom of Religion, it was nice knowing you.

A Gresham bakery that sparked controversy earlier this year by refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex couple closed up shop this weekend.

Though Sweet Cakes by Melissa is closing its store, the business will continue as an at-home bakery for custom cakes, according to the company's Facebook page.

Willamette Week reported earlier today that Saturday was the shop's last day before the transition to an at-home business. The phone number will be changing, but cakes can still be ordered at, according to the Facebook page.

Rachel Cryer and Laurel Bowman of Portland filed a complaint with the state earlier this year after Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused to bake a wedding cake for the couple, citing religious reasons.

Aaron Klein, co-owner of the bakery, previously told The Oregonian that he and wife Melissa sell to anyone regardless of sexual orientation but will not bake wedding cakes for a same-sex wedding because it goes against their Christian beliefs.

The complaint alleges that the bakery has violated Oregon laws that prohibit discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people in employment and public accommodations.

As gays are given more rights they are proving to be evil.
