Lesbians Strip Cake Business of Their Assets

Lesbian Couple Accuses Christian Bakers of ‘Mental Rape,’ Awarded $135,000

"An Oregon judge has awarded Lesbian couple Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer $135,000 for “emotional damages” in a lawsuit against Aaron and Melissa Klein of Sweet Cakes Bakery. They are a Christian couple who declined to provide a wedding cake to the same-sex couple in 2013.

In their lawsuit, the two women claimed they felt “mentally raped,” as part of a list of 88 symptoms of emotional distress they experienced at being refused a cake.

The long list of symptoms included “acute loss of confidence,” “doubt,” “excessive sleep,” “felt mentally raped, dirty and shameful,” “high blood pressure,” “impaired digestion,” “loss of appetite,” “migraine headaches,” “pale and sick at home after work,” “resumption of smoking habit,” “shock,” “stunned,” “surprise,” “uncertainty,” “weight gain” and “worry.”

The judge apparently found it unremarkable that “loss of appetite” and “impaired digestion” should lead to “weight gain.”

“[T]he forum concludes that $75,000 and $60,000, are appropriate awards to compensate for the emotional suffering they experienced,” wrote Alan McCullough, administrative law judge for Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries, in his proposed order.

The award will reportedly bankrupt the seven-member Klein family and force Sweet Cakes by Melissa Bakery to shut down. The Kleins’ lawyer, Anna Harmon, said that the damages awarded were not limited to the sale of business assets, but would be taken out of their personal funds.

“The important thing to realize is this,” Harmon said, “This is real money that Aaron and Melissa are going to have to pay that otherwise would be used to pay their mortgage and feed their kids.”

In January of 2013, Laurel Bowman said the bakery would not sell her and her fiancée, Rachel Cryer, a wedding cake. She added that Aaron Klein, co-owner of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, told her that providing them with a wedding cake would be against their religious principles.

This past February, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) announced that the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa bakery must pay the lesbian couple damages for refusing to sell them a wedding cake. BOLI spokesman Charlie Burr said there was sufficient evidence that the bakers discriminated against the same-sex couple.

A GoFundMe crowdfunding page in support of the bakery had been set up, but was deleted after the judge’s ruling Friday, since GoFundMe’s terms of service do not allow fundraising for people found in violation of the law."
The smart response to these homosexual attacks is to go out of business the minute they walked in the door. "Sorry, we just went out of business". A week or month later, re-open with a new location or a slightly new business and a new name. The homosexual attacks are out of (a) hate; (b) greed. They must be countered with the same sort of offensive methods that they use - hyper-aggression.

I'm so sick of these passive aggressive 'victims' I almost welcome the encroachment of Islam. These homo-fascist are worse than Islam. These two jackbooted lesbos are probably dancing jubilantly that they've just used the 'justice' system and its endless supply of sympathetic crooks in black robes to steal a family's livelihood and take food from their children just because they wouldn't bake them a stupid cake.

Meh...

Just another lavishly behaving homosexual couple. The ones who discriminate heterosexuals and bisexuals, because they are different.

Nothing new, sadly. This is one of the big reasons why I'm fleeing from marriage. Regardless of sexual orientation and/or affection, many married people nowadays make me sick of their self-indulgence. They are no different.

Moving along...

Time for a relocation out of the Oregon Gulag. . . I hear Texas might be a little more to their liking, at least at present.

The big question: where on this globe can one go without the infestation of the intolerant Toleranti and SJWs?!?

SJWs and Toleranti are what a society gets when it doesn't have any real problems.

Christians in the Middle East don't have to endure this nonsense. OTOH, they DO have to consider the likelihood of getting their heads cut off for their beliefs.

The long list of symptoms included...doubt...and uncertainty,”

The Christian couple should have been at least rewarded for causing the lesbian couple to doubt and to be uncertain.After all,Atheists are known to celebrate uncertainty,whatever that mean.
To paraphrase the old Atheist adage "Uncertainty is the first step to certainty but we cannot be certain because it's the last step to uncertainty,which is where we are most comfortable at"

And...

"The importance of doubt causes one to ask questions,which leads to answers that must be doubted so one can ask more questions (ad infinitum)"

Man,if only I were an Atheist too,then I'd be comfortable not knowing all the things Atheists don't know.

Yonose,

Nice to hear from you again. Have enjoyed your opinions for the last few years on Atheistwatch and this blog.

I also agree with you about marriage. I have been pondering the possibility that marriage may be worse for society.

In marriage, you only focus on your family, and making money is a main priority. I don't see how that adds value for making society better as a whole.

I'd say that $135,000 is one hell of a wonderful wedding present, even if no cake was served. I presume that the couple will now (FINALLY!) be able to find someone to bake them a cake. Perhaps the top should be decorated in $$$ signs.
