Oregon baker denies lesbian couple a wedding cake
Oregon baker Aaron Klein could face legal action after refusing to do business with a lesbian couple who sought a cake for their upcoming wedding.
As reported by KATU, the woman who filed the complaint says she had previously purchased a wedding cake from Sweet Cakes Bakery for her mother without incident, but was denied service after she told Klein the cake she wanted to buy was for her same-sex wedding.
Cue inevitable pun about this guy being anything but sweet.
Klein admitted he refused the bride-to-be, telling NBC, "I believe that marriage is a religious institution ordained by God. A man should leave his mother and father and cling to his wife ... that to me is the beginning of marriage."
While he won't bless the union of a gay couple with a too-thick layer of buttercream frosting and overly dry white cake, he is not anti-gay, Klein says. "I'll sell [gay people] stuff ... I'll talk to them, it's fine," he told NBC.
