Once Duff Goldman of "Ace of Cakes" heard that there was injustices being done involving cake, he knew that he could do something for the Oregon same sex couple that was denied a wedding cake by Aaron Klein, the owner of Sweet Cakes Bakery in Gresham, Ore. reports Huffington Post on Feb. 4.
Duff has sent an open offer out to the Portland couple whose names are not being released saying that he will make and ship them a cake for free if they would like. Duff says that Charm City Bakery has been making same-sex wedding cakes for years and adds, "For a cake decorator to really feel like he really needed to take a stand…it just makes absolutely no sense. It’s petty, it’s small…this man has wrapped up his hatred in the cloak of religion.”
When interviewed, Aaron Klein, the own of Sweet Cakes says, "I believe that marriage is a religious institution ordained by God. I'll sell [gay people] stuff...I'll talk to them, it's fine, but I won't participate in their wedding. I'd rather have my kids see their dad stand up for what he believes in than to see him bow down because one person complained."
Currently, Sweet Cakes in being investigated by the state of Oregon to determine whether or not Aaron Klein broke the law which says that a business or person cannot discriminate based on sexual orientation. Ultimately a judge will have to determine whether state law or constitutional rights will win out.
