US SUPREME COURT – The Supreme Court now has the opportunity to hear a second case about Christian bakers hit hard by their state for not making gay marriage cakes. And this gives the high court a chance to go further in protecting religious liberty than it did with the Masterpiece Cake Shop ruling earlier this year.
Aaron and Melissa Klein of Gresham, Oregon are now asking the US Supreme Court to hear their case about Oregon fining them $135,000 for refusing to bake a same-sex marriage cake back in 2013.
Lawyer Jeremy Dys is with First Liberty Institute which has been fighting for the Kleins.
Dys told CBN News outside the Supreme Court, “Aaron and Melissa have not only been penalized $135,000, but the state of Oregon in fact also imposed a gag order on them from even talking about their beliefs. Then they lost their business because of all this.”
