David and Edie Delorme have achieved the American dream. For more than a year now, the Delormes' have owned and operated their very own business.

Kern's Bake Shop is a small town bakery they have poured their lives into. To the folks in Longview, Texas, Kern's is famous for petit fours and sugar cookies...and custom-made wedding cakes.

The Delormes are also Christians and they run their bakery according to their faith.

On Feb. 17, two homosexuals decided to test the Delormes' faith when they ordered a wedding cake for their same-sex wedding.

"I was up front with them," Edie told FoxNews. "I said, 'I'm sorry but we don't provide wedding cakes for homosexual marriages."

"We don't do cakes that might conflict with our spiritual convictions," she said. "It was not something personal against the two young men. We just need to be able to run our business in a way that honors God."

She offered to provide the gay couple with a list of bakeries that would meet their needs, but she said they simply walked out of the store.

It took only a few days for the predicted retaliation from the homosexual community to begin.

Today, David and Edie are under a vicious and unrelenting attack by homosexuals. Their family and business have been threatened with violence, hate-filled comments have forced them to shut down their Facebook page, and their Yelp review page has been filled with filthy and Christophobic comments.

Texas law is on the Delormes' side, protecting their right to run their business according to the dictates of their faith. They have obtained legal representation in face of the numerous threats by homosexual activists.

Let David and Edie know they don't stand alone.
