Oregon AG Investigating Bakery's Refusal To Provide Cake For Same-Sex Wedding

The Oregon Attorney General's civil enforcement office has opened an investigation into a baker who refused to furnish a wedding cake for a lesbian couple's marriage.  According to today's New York Daily News, Aaron Klein, the owner of Sweet Cakes in Gresham, Oregon, says he was following his strong religious beliefs in deciding not to be a part of a same-sex marriage. Oregon's Equality Act of 2007 bars sexual orientation discrimination in public accommodations.
