Remember Sweet Cakes by Melissa? Oregon Christian bakers haven’t given up the fight

Share:
May 7, 2018

Aaron and Melissa Klein are a Christian couple who started their own business: a family bakery called Sweet Cakes by Melissa. After six years, Sweet Cakes was shut down in 2013 after the Kleins were fined $135,000 for declining to make a cake for a same-sex wedding.

But their First Amendment battle isn’t over yet – the nonprofit First Liberty Institute is appealing to the Oregon Supreme Court to reverse the decision and uphold the Kleins’ right to free speech, religious freedom and due process.

To The American Legion:

As a grateful citizen, I support your effort to honor those who have fallen in battle and to keep the Bladensburg WWI Veterans Memorial standing as a visible reminder of valor, sacrifice, endurance, and devotion.

Veterans memorials like the one in Bladensburg, MD are symbols reminding us of the sacrifice of our service members and the cost of war. Tearing down the Bladensburg Memorial would erase the memory of the 49 fallen heroes of Prince George’s County—like they never even existed.

We cannot allow the Bladensburg Memorial to be bulldozed.

Please know that you have my support and backing in your petition to the U.S. Supreme Court.
