Lesbians claim denial of service by Christian bakery is ‘mental rape’

575x384xnewly-wed-lesbians-575x384.jpg.pagespeed.ic.Pe6ujgriBR9Cc7uToc7dYou’ve probably heard about Sweet Cakes Bakery, which has been forced to shut down after its owners declined to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding, asserting it went against their strongly held religious beliefs. Two lesbians and sued, and now we know on what grounds they won.

Gateway Pundit reports,

Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer (pictured) sued Aaron and Melissa Klein of Sweet Cakes Bakery, forcing it to close its doors and won damages which will bankrupt the family. The Bowman-Cryers claimed they felt “mentally raped” in a list of 88 symptoms of emotional distress at being refused a cake.

Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer were awarded $135,000 for damages.

The GoFundMe donations page for Christian ‘Sweet Cakes’ bakery was taken down on Friday night.

When is this going to end? A handful of small Christian businesses decline to service a few people based on their strongly held religious convictions. Meanwhile, thousands of Christian businesses across the county regularly service the LGBT community. Muslim bakeries refuse to service gay couples with wedding cakes and no one bats an eye. Even conservative gays like Tammy Bruce and Gay Patriot have come out against the demonizing of a handful of small Christian businesses. This is all very telling, revealing it’s not about being gay, rather it’s part of a far left agenda to take away religious freedom for Christians by any means necessary.
