Oregon Bakery Refuses Service to Same-Sex Couple

This happened at "Sweet Cakes by Melissa" in Gresham, Oregon, a low-income suburb of Portland. Notice that even though the owner cites Biblical scripture against same-sex marriage, he has a visible tattoo and piercing (Leviticus 19:28).

UPDATE: The owners posted a racist rant on their business facebook page. Someone took a screen shot of it before it was quickly deleted. They said, "Fuck the Niggers, Spics, whores, sodimites (sic), fat bitches, ugly cunts, hypocritical hoes and overweight hippos on our feed. We try so hard to bake cakes and all you ungrateful bullies hate on me and my beautiful family after these articles were written, shame on you! If you don't like our business then don't stop by! More cake for our fellow Christians!"

UPDATE II: A newly revealed screen shot of Aaron Klein's facebook page shows him saying this about Obama, "Send him back to his socialist utopian gay rights loving homeland. And all the people that think like him can go too." To all the defenders of this bakery saying his Facebook was hacked, what do you have to say now? The language and writing sounds awfully similar to the other rant. This screen shot was taken before the bakery controversy.

UPDATE III: First interview with Aaron Klein's wife, Melissa. UPDATE IV: Another video report covering the protest last week. UPDATE V: features an interview with Aaron Klein in which he admits to calling the lesbian couple an abomination and detestable to the Lord. This contradicts his earlier statements in which he strongly said that he never called them that.
