Sorry, Slate: Oregon Did Put a ‘Gag Order’ on Those Christian Bakers

On Thursday, The Daily Signal published an article about Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) Commissioner Brad Avakian ordering Aaron and Melissa Klein, Christian bakers who had refused to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple, to pay the couple $135,000 for “emotional” damages and issuing a gag order against the Kleins.

On Monday, Slate published an article criticizing The Daily Signal’s coverage headlined “No, Oregon Did Not ‘Gag’ That Anti-Gay Bakery.”

While that’s a great, provocative headline, Slate’s headline is simply not true.

    Sweet Cakes by Melissa: The State of Oregon has failed in its attempt to bankrupt Aaron and Melissa Klein for the crime of declining to bake a cake

    “Through a campaign via Continue to Give, people who still respect both
    faith and freedom have responded to the following appeal by contributing
    more than $200,000”

    It won’t be to long before a Muslim couple goes into a Christian bakery and demands them to bake them a wedding cake which says “there is no God but Allah and Mohammad is his prophet”. That would be of course against the Christians religious beliefs but of course that wouldn’t stop an Islamists or leftest or homosexual in the name of “tolerance”.
