Franklin Graham URGES Every Christian To STAND Behind The Family Going To Bat For OUR FAITH

Aaron and Melissa Klein are standing in for each and every one of us, taking a beating for their faith. And in doing so, they are fighting also for our religious freedom.

The Kleins ran a family-owned bakery for years in Gresham, Oregon. In 2013, they were sued for not wanting to make a wedding cake for a gay couple. The courts ruled against them, fining them $135,000 for physical, emotional, and mental damages.

The Kleins, who have 5 children, have had to close down the bakery.

“We lost everything,” Melissa Klein shared with the Daily Signal. “I loved my shop, and losing it has been so hard for me and my family.”

“That was a part of our life, and it was something that we thought was going to be passed down to our kids. It’s something that I miss every day still. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get over it because it was our second home.”

Now, just this last Thursday, the Kleins had their case heard by a court of appeals. It would look at the case from a constitutional perspective, asking very powerful questions that would have far-reaching judicial implications, such as:

  • To what extent may an artist be compelled to do something?
  • How is sexual orientation different from race as a personal characteristic?

These are incredibly big questions upon which the ruling will set a legal precedent for all Christians who face similar issues of conflict of conscience. The Kleins are going to bat for all of us, and incurring a lot of hardship on the way.

Here, Franklin Graham shares their plight and asks each of us to stand in prayer and in support of them.

The appeals judges are not expected to rule for several months. Will you post your prayer for the Kleins and let them know you are standing with them and thankful for their faith?
