Oregon baker who refused same-sex wedding cake bakes for 'ex-gay' org

by Jeremy Hooper

Sweet Cakes by Melissa was one of the first of the high profile bakeries to earn national attention and a civil rights complaint for refusing to bake a same-sex wedding cake. But while Melissa Klein and her team won't make a cake for happy gay people who find love, she will bake for an "ex-gay" organization that tells those same gay people they are wrong, immoral, and in need of "fixing":

And not just any "ex-gay" organization, either. Restored Hope is an extremely aggressive group that launched in the wake of Exodus International's demise. Headed by "ex-lesbian" Anne Paulk (whose ex-"ex-gay" former husband is now back to being an out and proud gay man) and affiliated with exceedingly anti-gay personalities like Rob Gagnon, Restored Hope is one of the most hostile "ex-gay" group we've seen in some time. Just last week the organization suggested that banning scientifically discredited "ex-gay" therapy makes the government a partner in gay men's deaths. That's their speed.

Just in case you needed more evidence that these wedding cake refusals are most always acts of anti-gay aggression that extend well beyond the one request itself, here it is.
