Conservatives blame ‘gay mafia thugs’ after bakery that refused to make cake for lesbians shuts down

Published

on

The bakery that refused to make a cake for a lesbian wedding in 2013 announced on Thursday that it is officially shutting down. In a Facebook post, Sweet Cakes by Melissa wrote, “We have closed Sweet Cakes. We appreciate everyone’s continued prayer and support!”

After declining to serve Laurel and Rachel Bowman-Cryer for their wedding, the Christian bakery in Gresham, Oregon ended up facing a lawsuit in April 2015. The lawsuit resulted in the owners, Aaron and Melissa Klein having to pay $135,000 in damages because they discriminated against the couple, the Oregonian reported.

Mic reports that the Kleins were able to crowdsource the money through GoFundMe and a Christian donation platform called Continue to Give, and raised approximately $460,000.

However, the bakery is closing for good three years later, no thanks to the so-called “Homofascist Mob” and the “Gay Mafia.”

According to Charisma News, a Christian media company, the bakery was shut down because the Kleins were bullied by “left-wing bigots” — otherwise known as the Homofascists — because they refused to “violate their conscience” and bake a cake for the Bowman-Cryer’s wedding.

Red State took it to another level and pointed fingers at the “anti-Christian, pro-LGBT Gay Mafia” who “literally” ran the company out of business. Literally.

It gets better. The “Gay Mafia thugs” are out there apparently working “on behalf of the LGBT radicals” to push forward what can only be called an “anti-American agenda,” according to the Red State. Who knew?

There seems to be a lot of things that are anti-American these days: gay rights, racial justice, feminism, undocumented immigrants. I digress.

The Klein’s attorney, Hiram Sasser told Patriot Post, “We are continuing our appeal and look forward to achieving justice for them and all people of faith who may find themselves in similar circumstances in the future.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren leads Democrats in spirited first 2020 debate

Published

on

Ten Democrats clashed in the first debate of the 2020 presidential race Wednesday with Elizabeth Warren cementing her status as a top-tier candidate and several underdogs using the issue of immigration to clamor for the limelight.

The biggest American political debate since the 2016 presidential campaign is occurring over two nights in Miami, climaxing Thursday with former vice president Joe Biden squaring off against nine challengers, including number two candidate Bernie Sanders.

But Wednesday's first take was a spirited encounter between Democrats like ex-congressman Beto O'Rourke, Senator Cory Booker, former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on subjects as varied as health care, economic inequality, climate action, gun violence, Iran and immigration.

Here are 4 winners and 9 losers from the first 2020 Democratic primary debate

Published

on

With ten candidates on stage Wednesday, the opening debate of the 2020 Democratic primary in Miami was a packed mess. And this was only the first course in a two-part event — 10 more candidates will debate on the following night.

A crowded field makes it difficult to stand out, and that means that even after a big night like a debate, the most likely result is that not much changes. But the debate was still significant, giving candidates the chance to exceed, meet, or fall below expectations for their performances.

Here's a list — necessarily subjective, of course — of the people who came out on the top when the dust was settled, and those who came out on the bottom.

Here are 3 ways Julián Castro stood out in the first Democratic Debate

Published

on

There were many predictions going into the first Democratic debate on MSNBC, but no one predicted that Julián Castro would break out from the crowd.

Check out the top three ways Castro stood out from the crowd.

Immigration:

The former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development was the outright winner of the immigration section of the debate

It should "piss us all off," Castro said about the father and his little girl who were found face-down in the shores of the Rio Grande River this week. “It’s heartbreaking."

Castro is a second generation American who got into specifics on immigration policy, calling for an outright "Marshall Plan" style of action for Guatemala and Honduras. He joined with other Democrats calling for an end to President Donald Trump's family separation policy, but he then suggested ending the "metering" of legitimate asylum seekers.
