ARKANSAS: Activists Booted From Anti-Gay Rights Rally Led By Martyred Oregon Bakers [VIDEO]- Serious trouble for the lgbt community in Fayetteville. Melissa and Aaron Klein, the Oregon bakers who FALSELY claimed they were persecuted by the lgbt community because their "Christian faith" forbade them to make a cake for a lesbian couple, are helping in attempts to kill an anti-discrimination bill in Arkansas. And it's getting ugly with people getting kicked out of meetings.

it really bothers me that we've allowed the Right to shape the narrative around the Kleins. the incident and judgement wasn't just about baking a cake. they "doxxed" the lesbian couple in Oregon after finding out a complaint was filed - posted name/number/email/address on Facebook. as a result the couple had to move from their home becuase of hate mail and threats.

many people wonder what is the big deal about a wedding cake and why such a large monetary penalty. it feels unfair, no? but when you realize they doxxed the couple and wrecked their life, that penalty feels tiny.
