The Christian owners of Sweetcakes by Melissa, the couple who were slapped with a $135,000 fine for refusing to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding, are making a big move by reaching out to the gay community in an effort to build a bridge of hope and tolerance.

Melissa and Aaron Klein famously refused to obey a “gag order” by Oregon officials last month and are using their First Amendment rights to express themselves – with love.

The Kleins teamed up with Ray Comfort, a Christian leader who recently released “Audacity,” a movie about homosexuality, and packaged 10 individual cakes with a $25 gift card, a letter, and a copy of “Audacity” and sent them to gay rights groups on Wednesday, the Blaze reported.

“We’re doing it in hopes that they can hopefully see [how] to understand us as being Christian, and why we believe the way we do — and why we do the things we do,” Klein said. “They don’t understand the things we do.”

Every cake is meaningfully decorated with red, white and blue frosting.

“We wanted to have the cake represent freedom — that we all should have freedom and to live our lives the way we want to,” she said noting that she believes gays and lesbians should be free to live as they choose, according to the Blaze.

“But I also feel like I should have the right to live the way I want to, and that should be my choice.”

Klein wants the gay community to know that refusal to bake the wedding cake was not a choice that stemmed from hate. They also understand they will be accused of using this gesture as a publicity stunt, but that won’t stop them.

Klein said they are not expecting any responses from recipients, but are no doubt hoping their act of kindness will be accepted with open hearts and minds.
