The pro-sodomy US authorities force the closure of the bakery of Aaron and Melissa Klein in Gresham, Oregon.
The Oregon Christian bakery owners who refused to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding on the grounds that it would violate their religious convictions have been ordered to pay USA 135,000 in emotional damages, and have also been prohibited from speaking about standing up for their Christian beliefs.
On Thursday, Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian issued his final order in the case against Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of the Sweet Cakes by Melissa bakery in Gresham, who were found guilty of discrimination in January for declining to bake a cake for a lesbian couple’s wedding in 2013. Avakian ordered the Kleins to pay complainant Rachel Bowman-Cryer $75,000 for damages and $60,000 to her partner Laurel Bowman-Cryer.
The Kleins, who said last year that they were forced to close their shop in 2013 because harassment from LGBT advocates caused so much strain on their business, have also been told to “cease and desist” from speaking publicly about how they plan to continue to stand for their Christian faith and refuse to participate in same-sex weddings, as they now operate their business from their home

The gay perverts in the city of Sodom tried to take control of the house of Lot. They forced them selves on Lot, and demanded to have sex with two men who came to His house, two angles of the Lord.
If this had been the only such incident, God the almighty might have had pitty on the people of Sodom. But the homosexual offenders were not few in numbers, and considered nuisance. All men in the city had literally taken part in such sexual perversions, and brought all citizens under judgment. Abraham failed to find even 10 righteous men in the city.
Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.”
This is exactly what has taken place in the United States of America. Sodomy has been permitted to pollute all sectors of society and culture. The White House has become a hub of support of the gay lobby, now targeting Christians.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
The US Supreme Court has put it self above both the 10 commandments, and the divine instrcutions given to Paul the Apostle. In this way, the USA has become a modern day Sodom. A nation that will face the wrath of God, a nation destined for total destruction. All in the USA who support sodomy, will not inherit the Kingdom of God, but be sent to the everlasting fire of Hell. There they will spend eternality with all who support fornication and adulatry.
There are Christians in the US who will be kept safe from the comming wrath. True Christians will be like Lot, as they resist and rebuke these perverts. Do not surrender to their demands. Do not let them destroy the concept of marriage established by God. A marriage can never be anything but between one man and one woman.
A wife is a married woman. Marriage can never be a union of two men.
Exodus 20: 17
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”
Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife.
All Christians must be ready for persecution, and to be sent to jail. Also in the post-Christian American, true witnesses of Jesus the Messiah must be read for martyrdom. Keep on sharing the gospel, at any cost, enpowered by the Holy Spirit. Do it, and a crown wil be waiting for you inside the Kingdom of Heaven.

thank you ivar, for your encouragement. it seems our country has quickly been hijacked by this man of lawlessness both in our military where Christians are severely persecuted and in our culture where any dissent against any perversion is not tolerated. i am sure the NSA’s friends at facebook are storing up all comments against perversion for future trails. thank you for understanding that there are many many Christians here who not only do not agree with this but are actively speaking out against it. may God bless you as you continue to expose the work of satan in the world. as benjiman franklin stated, “We must all hang together, or we shall surely hang seperately.”
Reblogged this on macblue's blog.
The Klein’s should tell Oregon and the LGBT community to pound sand and move to a place more tolerant of their Christian beliefs and values, while they still can.
Interesting to see Lot being used as an example here.
Lot did not rebuke the men of Sodom when they came.
He pleaded with them.
Genesis 19 verse 7
And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
Then he offered them his daughters, but the men of Sodom weren’t interested.
The men of Sodom were angered by Lot and threatened him with worse that what they intended to do with the angels.
At that point the angels dragged Lot into the house, locked the door and blinded the men of Sodom so that they couldn’t find the door handle.
At no stage do we find Lot rebuking the men of Sodom.
He had up to this point dwelt among the men of Sodom, he had done well in business and was in that area because his and Abrahams flocks were too many for Lot to stay with Abraham.
Lot had dealt with the angels respectfully, feeding them and giving them a roof for the night etc. And not having any unhealthy desires toward them.
Lot was given advance warning of what was to happen to Sodom and was able to offer a warning to his nearest and dearest relatives. Only his daughters survived the destruction.
But, up to the time he left Sodom, he lived there among the sinners and no doubt sold animals in the city for meat.
But, no record of him rebuking the people of Sodom for their lifestyle choices.
How many “Christians” are willing to rebuke this nation and this people for allowing this country to come to this? Maybe a pitiful hand full.
I withdraw my consent to be governed by the U. S. Federal Government.
Anyone else willing to state the same?
Shalom. I am a UK citizen.
When our government was proposing to change our law I wrote to my representative. I told him what the Bible says. I asked him to vote against and he did.
But our Bibles teach us many things.
There is nothing new under the son.
God says of ancient Israel that their kings led them to sin.
Our governments today, in changing the definition of marriage have led people to sin.
In Paul’s day it would have been acceptable to stone people for practicing or promoting Sodomy.
In the ’50’s. It was illegal and carried a prison sentence. But nations have no fear of God.
Lot simply lived in Sodom until it was time to flee. He did not impose His religion on others but He was considered righteous by God. Lot ‘lived’ God’s way. And God rewarded this by giving advance warning of impending destruction. Lot was told who he could pass that warning on to, and none of them were Sodomists.
Of those who were warned there were three survivors. Lots wife disobeyed her husband and looked back.
The Bible tells us that there are people whose names are not written in the book of life. We have to live among many, we cannot decide who is or is not named, but we live in hope that through the blood of the Lamb we might be saved. And when the time to flee comes, will we be warned, and will we heed the warning.
The city authorities of Sodom knew what the men of the city were doing.
There is no record of Lot refusing to pay his taxes to them because of there willingness to permit and probably be involved in such practices.
Jesus said that we are to love one another as He loved us.
He taught that we are to love our enemies also.
Our governments are doing what seems right in their own eyes, in much the same way as the pharisees who had Jesus arrested tried, convicted and crucified. Of them He said ‘forgive them Father, for they know not what they do’.
Joseph was sold into slavery, he believed God was behind it and the Bible shows what happened over time.
The Lord Jesus Christ foretold that men would become lovers of themselves and also women would be willing to unnatural things.
We should not be surprised to witness these things in this age.
We also know that the government’s of this world will work towards establishing peace, it is written of in Daniel and Revelation. It isn’t a long lasting peace, but it will be based on compromise.
Unfortunately, many have been taught that the US and the UK have been “christian” Nations. This not true of the UK. In history we find accounts of the monarch deciding that the nation went from being protestant to catholic and back again at the stroke of a regal pen.
Jesus taught no man can come to me, unless the One who sent Me, draws him.
No government official can make a nation truly Christian.
Only Our Father who is in heaven can draw those He calls.
We if we hear the call must respond and then understand that although He called us and we responded, it was not because of anything we did to deserve it.
When the time to flee comes, there will be a warning, but there will be no time to warn others, therefore we should draw near now.
Gay people being normalised in society is simply a sign of the times, God knew this would happen. And warned that their would be persecution for believing the truth.
I believe that we might be entering the ‘beginning of sorrows’ if that’s the case there is worse to come.
Do what the Lord Jesus taught in the meantime. Render unto Caesar that which is his. For the Father says “Vengeance is mine”.
In the fullness of time God will deal with His enemies.
any and all will have to get a big NO from me and my family. and in many times I say so in many meaningful ways..I pray the Jews go home, G-d is calling them to come home where they will be protected. and when attacked , petra will be there for them and G-d will protect them for the last three and a half yrs. in the meantime the nations attacking will loose. and when all the natons come at them. G-d says HE will roar thru Zion and destroy them..there is four months left to the Shemitah, the FALL..is done. there will be no revival in the US or world, but there is on going on in Jerualem all over Israel, even the rabbi’s..the time set aside for HIS precious people is now. the time of the gentiles is all ut over aso like HE said, His eyes are back on Israel…Jeremiah 30:11 IaIh 60:12 and Joel 3:2 Rev 4:11 and from there to about REv 17 you do not hear of the church.. HE will take HIS Bride home.and come back in 7 years for HIS WIFE an HE said HE IS coming with Salvations fo them and all Israel will be saved. HE said HE was not going to punish Israel because they had already been punished double for their sin, and remember HE blinded them for us heathen so we could have the power to become sons of G-d. the old replacement thelogy is a lie..we who are believers are grafted into Israel. Romans 11…. and all of Romans 9-10 and 11. shalom HE said it is better to believe G-d than man
I happen to live in Oregon and our governor is openly bi-sexual see wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kate_Brown She was unelected by trickery and deceit when our previous governor was thrown out. I guarantee that our previous governor who was re elected by the people of Oregon even though they knew he was in trouble, and that Kate Brown would be the next governor. They push their beliefs on us, and yet we have no say. They want us silenced, not just the bakers. “But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God. And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His Name. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.” Neither should we!
Shalom, and love in Jesus.
Great to have a minister on this blog from Oregon. When we let the sodomists have the top jobs in our culture, they always try to enforce their perverisons on others. Like in public schools. They also try their stunts, and expect their sins to be accpeted in private Christian schools too.
In Isaiah we find that in the future ‘the government shall be up His (Christs) shoulder.
He will be crowned King of kings and Lord of lords, but right now, the governments of this world are in control.
You quoted from Acts 5.
The Pharisees were discussing the work of the Apostles, they referred to the work of Theudas and Judas of Galilee, how these men had led many astray, but eventually they died and their followers went their own way. So, the Pharisees in their wisdom decided that their work died out because God was not behind it.
They reasoned that the same would happen this time.
‘But if it be of God’ they cannot overthrow it.
Then they beat the Apostles and commanded them not to preach Christ.
But it is interesting to note what they did next.
Yes they rejoiced and then what?
They preached Christ in the Temple and in every house. But not it seems in the work place?
Just find it interesting that I noticed that the Bible is specific about where the Apostles preached Christ.
