Seth Allan for U.S. Congress
Sweet Cakes owners endorse Republican primary congressional candidate
CANBY, Ore. – Seth Allan this week announced the endorsement of Aaron and Melissa Klein for his campaign for U.S. Congress.
Aaron and Melissa’s religious beliefs kept them from baking a cake for a same-sex wedding. As a result, they were forced to pay a $135,000 penalty and have had to close down their business.
“As personal liberties have come under scrutiny in Oregon and across the nation, we are grateful to Seth for his steadfast defense of religious liberty,” the Kleins stated.
At one point, Aaron and Melissa were threatened with being forced to turn over their home and property in order to satisfy the ruling against them.
“A six figure fine for not baking a cake is an exaggerated display of outrage for a personal religious choice,” says Allan. “My campaign will not hesitate to speak up for the Klein family and many others across the nation whose religious convictions are being trampled on.”
