Christian baker hounded by gays to close shop: My faith in God ‘has grown’

An Oregon baker with Christian beliefs who was forced to shut down operations after refusing to make a cake for a planned same-sex wedding says her faith in God has not wavered — and in fact, has grown stronger because of the ordeal.

The outcry from the gay community over their refusal to bake the lesbians’ cake hit hard at their vendor business. Many cut ties and left them in limbo. The business had already suffered a tight winter; Mrs. Klein said the negative reaction from the lesbian cake ordeal likely pushed their revenue situation into the category of dire.

“We coasted it through the summer to see how it would be,” Mrs. Klein said. “We had quite a few wedding cakes that we had booked, and people cancelled. The referrals that we would get, none of those came in.”

Meanwhile, Mrs. Klein had a message for those facing challenges in life: Don’t give up on God. ...

Just seems like it would be a lose, lose situation because if they admitted what they did, that's probably enough to open up a lawsuit(s). Whatever though, I just think it's disgusting that Christian businesses have no recourse against the attacking homosexuals. You know they could very easily just boycott them and go to a baker who supports their lifestyles, but no, they have a particular goal in mind, a goal which they accomplished this time around. Turn the tables...say a homosexual baker refused to bake a cake for, say, a Christening. Would their shop be closed today? No, nobody, or at least not enough, people would care.
Why would the homosexuals sue the bakery if the homosexuals received a cake even if the cake was awful tasting? The whole idea of the homosexuals suing the bakery was that the bakery refused to provide them a cake. So if the bakery had provided the homosexuals a cake even if it tasted awful there would have been no basis for a lawsuit by the homosexuals against the bakery.

I've been considering your comments more than usual, John, and the only thing I would wonder is whether or not doing that would cause them to lose their business anyway. Weddings are special days, especially to the bride who does all of the planning, absorbs most of the stress, and demands that everything be nothing less than perfect. I'm thinking that an awful tasting wedding cake, just one, would ruin their business on its own because when it comes to such an important day, I think that sort of news would travel real fast over to wedding planners, brides, photographers, and anyone else involved in events, event planning, etc.

Let us imagine if that bakery had baked a cake for that homosexual wedding but put a lot of salt in the cake to make it taste not that great. The homosexuals would not have had any reason to sue the bakery. Correct?
