    It is certainly encouraging to see the common man standing up to the Gaystopo.

    They are standing up for their religious freedoms and they are also standing up for their business rights as owning private property and private business. It is always the sodomites who wish to destroy your private property rights.
    If I am not mistaken I believe the people of Oregon passed a state amendment making marriage between one man and one woman. It is very encouraging to see other Christians supporting them as opposed to remaining on the sidelines.

    Watch the video at the 3:15 mark as it is a loaded question. it is because of the sodomites flaunting their depravity it becomes a problem. I do not know of any bakery that asks you about your wedding when you buy a cake. So the lesbian could have walked in and bought a wedding cake and by keeping their mouth shut would have had no problem. Always tooting their horn.

    Watch the video at the 4:40 mark. The claim that they had bought cakes their before. That is probably because they just went in and bought a cake. Problem solved.

    "Gosh, who knew the Bible forbids baking wedding cakes!"

    It doesn't, Bobby poo! What it does forbid is ignoring common sense by celebrating legal fictions like so-called same-sex marriage and living by phony definitions of freedom, such as, the old, left-over-from-the-Sixties notion that anything goes sexually. Clear?

    TOUGH love requires christians to not cooperate with evil practices. We are all sinners but we love other sinners so much (thanks be to God) that we must correct other sinners. For example, if I am being unfaithful to my wife, I pray that other sinners (including practicing homosexuals) will correct me. The bakers love the lesbian couple so much that they have the courage to publicly admonish them. i will no longer watch that baking show on the Food Channel hosted by Duff (what's his last name ?).

    Stew-pid Robert: There were no wedding cakes in Biblical times. Plus, why can't they just buy undecorated cakes, put them together, and decorate it themselves? . . bunch of inept sissies. They preach 'love' and their purpose is to 'harm'. They will get what they deserve.

    A wedding cake is more than food. It is a work of art, and a symbol from the French royalty times - elegance. The baker is jut not interested in making them a work of art. It's called artistic freedom. Get it?

    Why would we force an orthodox Jew to cook you some pork chops?

    Who is being unreasonable in this case?

    Who is now making much more money, and didn't really commit a crime, as some would accuse them of?

    If you are going to make stew-pid Biblical assertions, you better do your research, first, because I am here to put you straight (no pun intended) :)

    If a government wants total control over it's citizens it would need to totally control marriage and religion. Ask Henry VIII

    Having religious values and being able to incorporate them in business is exactly what the Bible requires. The term 'discrimination' and it's understanding especially by the Gay Community has gone astray!

    One of the local bakers who will create a cake for the couple noted that the Gresham Bakery had made a cake for the same couple on other occasions.

    Which prompts the one million dollar question:

    Does sexual orientation discrimination include declining events associated with certain sexual orientations, or is it merely declining services based on the customer's sexual orientation?

    One has to wonder if serving gay people regularly but refusing to create cakes for certain events is a form of sexual orientation discrimination.

    Anyways, kudos to the bakers for standing up for their beliefs, and to those showing their support. It's everyday instances like this which remind us that gays and lesbians are looking for societal approval. No matter what legal rights or titles the government may give them, ultimately, their desire is to be viewed as "normal," and their sexual practices as valuable. When speaking with SSMers on blogs, etc., they'll claim that they are not looking for "your" approval, but it literally devastates them when an average person reminds them that their relationships are not esteemed to the place of a man and woman's.

    I find it interesting that simply "choosing" to become religious gives you special rights that no one else has. The right to discriminate against anyone you want, no matter where you happen to be at the time. I find it even more laughable that the person doing the discriminating is somehow the victim. Did you ever notice that no one has ever heard of a Christian being discriminated against by a gay person. Why is that?

    David wherever: Do religious people have a right to vote as to what constitutes illegal discrimination?

    Christians are always discriminated by gay people, DiH. It happens every time a homosexual recruits the state in an attempt to coerce Christian business owners into acting against their faith. It also happens whenever Christians hold street side demonstrations expressing their religious convictions and they endure verbal and physical abuse that range from name calling to being spit on to having bottles thrown at them via passing vehicles.

    I know that you consider having views different from yours to be "discrimination" but that is simply not the case. Otherwise, people are only free and have rights when they agree with everything you say.

    @David

    Funny, the same thing can be said to homosexual activists who feel entitled to special rights.

    "I find it even more laughable that the person doing the discriminating is somehow the victim."

    Who says he's being a victim? Being a victim would imply his emotions are rattled. He refused to let public pressure get to him and is standing for his beliefs. That's the exact opposite of a victim.

    "Did you ever notice that no one has ever heard of a Christian being discriminated against by a gay person. Why is that?"

    I know right? Let's conveniently forget the people who were harassed for voting for Prop 8 or church's being vandalized after it passed. Let's ignore the crybaby liberals who prohibited Chick-Fil-A from opening shop in their cities because the CEO actually has a spine. Let's ignore the catholic adoption agencies having to close their doors because the they don't want their conscience being violated. Let's forget people being suspended for simply saying homosexuality is a sin. Let's also ignore the myriad of small business facing lawsuits or boycotts because they won't fall in lockstep with opposing ideologies.

    I am so glad to see this man stand up to these gay bullies who would try to run him out of his business and charge him with discrimination.........DOMA must stand firm to protect Marriage between man and woman only,.......

    AND, I find it interesting that simply "choosing" to become 'gay' gives you special rights that no one else has.

    If I lived in Oregon I would be buying a lot of cupcakes from these folks. God Bless them for having the courage to stand up for principle. Homosexuals & lesbians who wish to get "married" can find some other baker to bake their "wedding" cake.

    Yet another counter example to the lie that "gay marriage" allegedly won't affect anyone who doesn't believe in it.
