Serving customers is important, but at one Oregon bakery, serving Jesus matters more. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. At Sweet Cakes in Oregon, the recipe for success may be sticking by your convictions. At least that's what Aaron Klein hopes after two lesbians came in to his shop for a same-sex "wedding" cake. Klein apologized--but explained he couldn't help them. "I believe that marriage is a religious institution ordained by God," he said. The brides were so angry that they stomped out and filed a lawsuit. Aaron says he's sorry they're offended, but he's not sorry for exercising his rights. "They made a choice to do what they're doing, I'm making a choice not to be a part of it." Besides, he said, "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." Thank goodness for Christians like Aaron! He may bake cakes, but he's not about to sugar-coat his convictions!
