You may remember the story of Sweet Cakes By Melissa, a Christian bakery in Oregon which was forced out of business when they declined to bake a cake for a gay wedding. The Democrat who forced them into the spotlight lost his election bid last week.
Oregon official who bullied Christian bakery owners loses election
An Oregon bureaucrat who waged political jihad against the owners of a Christian bakery was given the heave-ho by voters.
Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian was defeated by Republican Dennis Richardson in his bid to be Secretary of State.
It’s the first time a Republican has been elected to a statewide office in Oregon since 2002.
So consider this – Avakian was too liberal for what is arguably one of the most liberal states in the country.
Avakian, a passionate advocate for the LGBTQIA crowd, was thrust into the national spotlight when he declared war on a Christian bakery in 2013.
Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of Sweet Cakes By Melissa, declined to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple’s ceremony.
Hopefully, these folks can get their lives back now.
They never did anything to hurt anyone. They just wanted to remain true to their faith.
What’s wrong with that?
