(Worthy News) – An Oregon appeals court told a state agency Wednesday to reconsider its order for a Christian couple to pay $135,000 in damages for refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding on grounds that the state’s actions did “not reflect … neutrality toward religion.”
However, the panel upheld its earlier ruling that their bakery violated state law prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation.
