GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) - The state attorney general's office is investigating a consumer complaint filed against a Gresham bakery that declined to make a cake for a same-sex wedding.
The Oregonian and KATU report that Laurel Bowman wrote the complaint against Sweet Cakes By Melissa after she and her fiancée went to the bakery Jan. 17.
In her complaint, Bowman said the owner refused to make the cake when he learned it was for a same-sex wedding and called the couple "abominations unto the lord."
Bakery owner Aaron Klein told The Oregonian he sells cakes to customers of all sexual orientations, but same-sex marriage goes against his Christian faith.
He denies calling the couple "abominations."
The attorney general's office is waiting for Sweet Cakes' official account before deciding whether to take action.
