sweet-cakes-store-closing-sign (1)Anna and I will be discussing the Klein case which made national headlines when the couple, owners of Sweet Cakes bakery, declined to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple in 2013.

An Oregon judge ruled that the Kleins were guilty of discrimination, and the couple could be ordered to pay up to $150,000 in damages.

As Aaron Klein told Todd Starnes of

“They’re trying to push us into the closet for being Christians.”

Anna and I will discuss the case, the ramifications to Aaron and Melissa’s life and business.

And the question: why does the worldview and belief system of 2 lesbians have greater weight, legally, than the worldview of 2 Christians? The precedence is chilling.

Don’t miss this important conversation!
