judge commissioner who knowingly put the anti-gay marriage bakers out of business with a fine they could never pay tried to beggar them further.
“In the ruling, [Commissioner Brad] Avakian placed an effective gag order on the Kleins, ordering them to ‘cease and desist’ from speaking publicly about not wanting to bake cakes for same-sex weddings based on their Christian beliefs.”
So as not to be able to raise money from sympathizers beyond their immediate circle to help them pay the $135,000 fine for, get this, “mentally raping” the two Lesbians they refused to serve. Oh, please. But Mr.
Judge Commissioner didn’t enjoin us from helping the Kleins by posting the address of their new Internet site.
Where they seem to be as defiant as ever, risking their hides anew with this wording of their Web ad: “We here at Sweet Cakes strongly believe that when a man and woman come together to be joined as one, it is truly one of the most special days of their lives, we feel truely honored when we are chosen to do the cake for your special day.”
Meanwhile, the Democrat Party, Stalinists of old and of late, are daring anyone else to try and follow suit. Why don’t we all get together and make the Kleins richer than they could ever imagine? Me, I would be more creative, but to each their own. That really is the essence of the religious clause of the First Amendment after all.
They’re going to need to pay more lawyer fees it seems and it would be lots more effective than handing our money to pols who will only go back on their promises after they’re elected. Lying, as always, and merely adding to the new state coercion. Eh?
UPDATE: It’s always worth fighting the left, instead of trying to accomodate it the way pathetic RINOs do. Why? Because, as Sultan Knish explains, the left is only interested in power: “The left does not care about gay rights. If you doubt that, consider how many of the left’s favorite Muslim countries have gay rights. The left has recently divided its campaign passions between gay marriage and defending Iran. Iran denies the existence of gays and hangs them where it finds them.”
