Oregon Bakery Closes Shop rather than violate their Religious Beliefs

H/T RomneyMan
A bakery embroiled in controversy after an owner refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple is closing up its Gresham storefront. 
According to the “Sweet Cakes by Melissa” Facebook page, “This will be our last weekend at the shop; we are moving our business to an in-home bakery…”
On Aug. 14, Oregon’s state Bureau of Labor and Industries reported its investigation to determine if Sweet Cakes’ actions violated the Oregon Equality Act of 2007, which states that people cannot be denied service based on sexual orientation. The law provides an exemption for schools and religious groups, but not for private businesses, according to a BOLI news release.

I've seen these stories, since I live here, and it's sad. People need to leave them the hell alone.

A person's creative talents are not owned by the state. Businesses can choose to give up the money and tell people no if you don't want to serve them. Religious people are urge most vulnerable because we are ignoring the freedom of religion guaranteed in the Constitution.
