The Daily Caller: “Oregon’s labor commissioner issued a final decree on Thursday forcing the owners of a family bakery in Oregon to pay a lesbian couple $135,000 for refusing to bake a cake for their wedding.
The commissioner, Brad Avakian, ruled that Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, must pay the hefty sum to Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer for emotional anguish they claim to have suffered for being refused the cake.
“This case is not about a wedding cake or a marriage,” wrote Avakian, an elected official, according to The Oregonian. “It is about a business’s refusal to serve someone because of their sexual orientation. Under Oregon law, that is illegal.”
Opinion: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
We could go on for days debunking the argument of the secular left, and all too often the secular right, but none of that will change a thing. To those who have no consideration of God in their lives the matter of same-sex marriage is just as normal as the fight over Roe v. Wade which still rages on after 40 years.
The larger point, one that seems to escape any consideration except from those prophecy nuts that are relegated to the back of the church, is that an attempt at some form of globalized church is now possible.
The world is growing more secular each day. Same-sex marriage is but one more stake in the ground for the Laodicean church of which Christ said is neither hot or cold and, “So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16
We Christians are going to need each other – even though we debate.
