The state of Oregon has ruled that a bakery discriminated against a homosexual couple and must pay them $150,000.

The owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Gresham, Oregon, denied service to the same-sex couple because of their religious belief that homosexuality is an “abomination unto the lord.”

Action by the state of Oregon forced the business to close its doors in December.

In Oregon, the state prohibits private business from making decisions on who may or may not receive service.

“Oregonians may not be denied service based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The law provides an exemption for religious organizations and schools, but does not allow private businesses to discriminate based on sexual orientation,” Charlie Burr, the spokesman for Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries, said earlier this week.
