Cheer up, Gary Johnson. Hardly anyone is voting for you despite the weakest competition ever, but at least Sweet Cakes by Melissa has been destroyed:
After years of court battles, the Christian-owned bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa is closing its doors.
The Oregon-based company was targeted by LGBT activists when owners Aaron and Melissa Klein said they wouldn’t bake a cake for a gay wedding because of their Christian beliefs.
The subsequent legal battled crippled the bakery. The Kleins had been operating out of their home for the last few years. But now they’ve announced on their Facebook page, “We have closed Sweet Cakes. We appreciate everyone’s continued prayer and support!”
They lost their business to anti-Christian repression, but they didn’t betray their beliefs, so unlike some, they get to keep their souls.
Left-wing authoritarians like Johnson would spin this tragedy as a big win against the boogeyman “discrimination.” LGBT activists must be whooping with triumph. But this is not about discrimination, and militant perverts are expendable tools. For those who impose it, tyranny is its own reward. The victory is particularly sweet when it comes at the expense of tyranny’s historic enemy, Christianity.
