When the homosexual rights movement began in earnest in the 1990s, the mantra was “tolerance.” That was their messaging. All we want is for you to show us some “tolerance.”

This message was echoed by the drive by media through out the ‘90s and into the 2000s. Many conservatives bought the message completely. Now, they are shocked to discover tolerance isn’t what the homosexual rights movement wants.

It wants tyranny.

For two years in Oregon, the story of Aaron and Melissa Klein has played out. In 2013, a pair of lesbians went to the Kleins’ bakery, Sweet Cakes by Melissa,” to order a wedding cake. At the time, homosexual marriage was illegal in Oregon.

The Kleins declined. Instead of doing the sane, rational and grownup thing, namely walking down the street to another baker, the lesbians brought a complaint to the Oregon Department of Labor.



Many pundits have stated they believe the Kleins were targeted because they were Christians. The story went viral and the Kleins were bombarded by liberal hate. They were threatened and eventually Sweet Cakes by Melissa shut its doors.

The Kleins continued to try to make ends meet by baking from their home. Now the Oregon Department of Labor is hitting the Kleins with a damage of $135,000, and $60,000 of that is going to Laurel Bowman-Cryer and $75,000 to Rachel Bowman-Cryer. This award was not given by a jury but instead by an administrative law judge. The Kleins were not given the protections of a jury trial.

This fine is not coming from the business or from insurance. It will come from the Kleins. The Kleins are parents of five children. This fine will leave them bankrupt and destitute.

But that is the plan.

There is no tolerance for religious beliefs from the homosexual movement nor the radical left, which is generally known as the Democrat Party. The concept here is simple. That is to send a message to anyone else. If you dare to stand up for your religious beliefs, you will be bankrupted.

A number of real Americans were outraged by what the People’s Republic of Oregon did in this case so they set up a Gofundme account for the Kleins to help them with this fine.

A radical leftist in Oregon complained to Gofundme and the page that had raised $109,000 for the Kleins was shut down. Only a couple of weeks ago, real Americans had rushed to the aid of Memories Pizza in Indiana to help them after the radical homosexual movement tried to shut them down.

No, the homosexuals and radical leftists will not be happy until the Kleins and anyone else who dares to disagree with them is begging in the streets.

American Christianity and the Party of Treason are now on a collision course. Only one will survive. The Christians are tolerant while the Party of Treason, the name real Americans have for the Democrats, wants complete obedience to the leftist orthodoxy.

The Party of Treason believes there is only one god, and that is the socialist state and no one shall be allowed to have a god before it. Leftists worship the state, as long as they control it. No dissent may ever be tolerated.

Some of the first settlers in America were Christians seeking a place to worship freely and to escape persecution. The irony here is that if the Party of Treason has its way, American Christians may soon have to start looking at other nations where they can worship freely.
