Christian Bakers Won't 'Compromise on God's Truth'


Christian bakers from Oregon will find out in one month if they'll be slapped with massive fines as a punishment for standing up for their religious freedom.

In 2013, Sweet Cakes by Melissa declined to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. At the time, gay marriage was not even legal in Oregon.

But the Oregon Bureau of Labor has since ruled that Aaron and Melissa Klein violated the civil rights of the gay couple.

The Kleins now report on their Facebook page that they'll find out March 10 if they will be fined.

They could face $150,000 in fines, which could force them into bankruptcy.

Still, the Kleins have posted a message saying they're standing firm for their biblical beliefs.

"Even though it seems as if we are being thrown into the lion's den, we will continue to stand for the Lord. Our faith will not waiver," they write.

"We fully trust in our heavenly Father," the added. "He is able to deliver us from this. But even if He doesn't we are not going to compromise on God's truth in order to appease man."
