Supreme Court reverses state Sweet Cakes decision
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday reversed a $135,000 judgment against Gresham bakers Aaron and Melissa Klein, and sent their case back to the Oregon Court of Appeals.

The Kleins were the focus of an intense legal fight over state anti-discrimination laws beginning in January 2013 when they refused, based on their Christian beliefs, to bake a custom wedding cake for a Portland lesbian couple. Oregon's Bureau of Labor and Industries decided that the couple discriminated against the gay couple. In April 2015, an administrative law judge agreed to a $135,000 judgment against Sweet Cakes by Melissa, among other things, "emotional damages."

After closing their Gresham bakery, the Kleins appealed the fine, touching off the legal battle that eventually landed at the U.S. Supreme Court.

In its June 17 brief certiorari petition decision, the court decided that the Kleins' case should be reconsidered in light of a similar case involving a Colorado baker who refused to sell a cake to a gay couple. That case, Masterpiece Cakeshop Ltd. V Colorado Civil Rights Commission, hinged on shop owner Jack Phillips' First Amendment rights to refuse service. In its ruling, the Supreme Court upheld the baker's rights and said the Colorado commission had been hostile to Phillips' Christian beliefs.Supreme Court reverses state Sweet Cakes decision
This is a very big win. This is the case that set off the Gay movement that ended up getting Gay marriage ruled on in the Supreme Court. After the ruling in the Colorado baker case the Supreme court reverses the Sweet Case decision and sent this case back to the Oregon Court of Appeals.

Prayer could be winner of tonight’s game for Opelika High School students Prayer could be winner of tonight’s game for Opelika High School students. The students are leading the prayer at the ball games. The FFRF is complaining about it, but one problem, students can’t be stopped from prayer by law. This is a win for religious rights for students. Congratulations
