Here’s a reminder of the Klein’s case in a nutshell: Husband-and-wife bakers fined $135,000 by the state of Oregon for the damages caused by their declining to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. Can this be happening in America?

Does the absence of public outrage over this fine mean that most Americans are not aware of the case or that most Americans think the penalty is justified?
By the way, the latest news (and the reason for the article) is that the state of Oregon has seized the Klein’s bank accounts in order to collect the fine.
