A lesbian couple who was recently denied service at a bakery in Oregon will be getting a pretty sweet consolation prize: A free wedding cake courtesy of celebrity chef Duff Goldman.
Last month, bakery owner Aaron Klein reportedly told an unnamed customer that he would not prepare a cake for her same-sex wedding because he believed homosexuals "were abominations to the Lord."
He continued: "I'd rather have my kids see their dad stand up for what he believes in then to see him bow down because one person complained."
"I saw this story and I was like, "Wait — I can do something, there's injustice involving a cake!" the Charm City Cakes owner told HuffPost Live. "For a cake decorator to really feel like he really needed to take a stand…it just makes absolutely no sense. It's petty, it's small…this man has wrapped up his hatred in the cloak of religion."
And Klein's stand could end up costing him more than a couple of customers and a bad reputation.
Klein and his wife Melissa, the bakery's co-owner and namesake, have two weeks to explain themselves to the Oregon Department of Justice.
