Oregon Cake Baker Sends Cakes to LGBT Activists

You would not see this display during the struggle for civil rights.

Could you imagine, during the struggle for civil rights, a proprietor of a segregated diner that was subject to a sit-in later handing out boxed lunches to the protesters? What about the KKK mowing the lawn where a cross was burned the night before? This illustrates the difference between the fight against segregation in the ‘60s versus what the same-sex marriage activists are championing. In response to being ordered by the State of Oregon to pay $135,000 because they refused to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding ceremony, Aaron and Melissa Klein, who owned the bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa, baked cakes and sent them to the 10 biggest LGBTQ advocacy organizations on the West Coast. Melissa Klein told The Daily Signal, “They might just throw it in the garbage. They can do that, it’s OK. My hope is that they will see the feeling behind it, and just maybe understand.” The cakes are white with a red heart atop. In the heart are the words, “We really do love you!” And the Left argues that cakes are not speech. In sending the cakes, the Kleins show that they are not motivated by fear and hate, rather the will to live out their beliefs.
