State Tells Opponents of Gay Marriage they Need “Remediation”

Oregon officials have found a bakery in Gresham guilty of “sexual orientation” discrimination for declining to bake a cake for a same-sex “wedding.” The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries determined that the business had violated the state’s “public accommodations” law.


Melissa and Aaron Klein shut down their retail bakery shop late last year following a boycott organized by homosexual activists against the bakery and vendors who did business with the shop.


The Labor and Industries Commissioner said the Kleins needed to undergo remediation saying the state’s goal “is to rehabilitate.”


Teresa Harke, spokeswoman for the Friends of Religious Freedom, called it “very troubling that Oregon officials believe that people of faith or with conscientious objections need to be ‘rehabilitated.’”
