The Supreme Court ruled that it violated the owners of Hobby Lobby's religious beliefs to force them to pay for certain types of birth control.


In the Oregon case, the state charged the Kleins of Gresham with violating the state's non-discrimination law for refusing to make a cake for a lesbian couple's wedding.


The Klein's lawyer, Herb Grey, told Lars Larson, the cases are similar.


"Well the common thread is a system of government is established for people to live and work according to their beliefs.  What the court decided in the Hobby Lobby case is government can't tell people their beliefs are good or bad.  They have to respect those to a certain extent."


Officials with the Labor Commissioner's Office do not believe the Supreme Court decision will have any impact on their ability to protect people from discrimination on the job because of sexual orientation.
