Posted on 09/02/2013 2:09:27 PM PDT by LucianOfSamasota
In May, TheBlaze told you about Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, an Oregon-based bakery that has fallen under intense scrutiny. Throughout 2013, the Christian couple and their business have been in the midst of a media firestorm after refusing to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple.
From threats to vicious phone calls and e-mails, the Klein family has been inundated with angry responses. Now, Aaron and Melissa have announced that they are shutting down their shop.
In a brief phone interview earlier this month, Melissa told TheBlaze that the couple has continued to face upheaval following their faith-based decision. Just days after we spoke, she and her husband announced that this past weekend was the familys last at its current location.
The business will be transitioning, with the Kleins operating, instead, from their home.
This will be our last weekend at the shop we are moving our business to an in home bakery, read a post on the companys Facebook page on Aug. 30.

More tolerance from the left.
This is exactly why I refused to support expanding homosexual ‘rights’. Now if you don’t bow down to them and kiss their ring finger, they’ll put you out of business.
Christians can support businesses that are Christian.....but will they?.....
Their ring finger is not what they expect you to kiss
I refuse any homosexual rights bullcrap because I despise fags. They despise us back anyways so why are we playing nice with these degenerate pukes?
Reminds me of the time the gays pressured eHarmony.com, even though there are a bazillion online love and adult dating sites out there.
The persecution is outrageous. If GBLT's don't like the way someone does business, go support a GBLT baker. There are plenty of them around.
An in-home bakery?
I bet the frequent inspections, mounting regulations and tax audits will make that business short lived.
We’d love to have them move to Charlotte and open their business.
Of course, I don’t think I’ll ever be buying a wedding cake. But I’d go out of my way to buy other baked goods from them.
I imagine the building owner was also intimidated.
We are supposed to be tolerant of perverts, fine. But I demand the pervert-lovers show equal tolerance for those that don’t share their belief that anything goes. Oh, wait, we don’t see that. If you’re not on board with the liberal agenda then they feel justified in any level of hatred and intolerance towards you. Effing hypocrites, every single one of them.
This is what the homosexual agenda is. Obama will back them to the hilt. Pun intended.
This will go on for a while but it can not last. The backlash is coming. Good hard working decent moral Americans will not stand idly by and allow this Country to be destroyed.
What are these people thinking. Do you really want to eat something prepared by someone you forced into doing something they don’t want to do? Y’all didn’t really think this one through, did you.
Ouch, that's going to leave a mark!
The sad fact is that neither Christians nor conservatives will use the power of their spending. Hand it to the rope suckers, they will absolutely boycott a place if it won't ‘figuratively’ bend over for them. You have to hand to them - at using their pocketbooks as weapons, they are much better than us.
I’m curious, how is running a home bakery help them avoid anti-discrimination laws? Wouldn’t they still be considered a business?
I'd get out of Oregon if I were them.
I imagine they lost their lease. When the left attacks it attacks from all fronts.
What are these people thinking. Do you really want to eat something prepared by someone you forced into doing something they dont want to do? Yall didnt really think this one through, did you.
Has nothing to do with cake, has all to do with bullying.
> I refuse any homosexual rights bullcrap because I despise fags. They despise us back anyways so why are we playing nice with these degenerate pukes?
Because King Fag can command the IRS to audit you, the NSA to spy on you, and his assassination teams to kill you. We can still give them wedgies and call them fags though...: )
Yeah, I have a feeling the road is just going to rougher for these folks. Especially since the article mentions a lot of the vendors/groups they’ve done business with have also been pressured.
Decent Americans have been letting the country be destroyed for 5 years now.
I have yet to see a united front against this crap.
I suspect this business was targeted precisely because of their views. There was a similar case not long ago when a florist who was well known for his traditional beliefs had a visit from an “unsuspecting” gay couple. It was a setup from minute one, of course.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Just for the general FYI, here’s a link to the bakery’s website:
It’s pretty obvious they are a religious family. I have no doubt they were targeted on that basis.
Beautiful pic of the family, btw. It really shows how sick and hate-filled the “tolerant” opposition is when they wish harm on this couple or their kids.
Hetrophobia: Intense hatred for everyone who is not Homosexual out of guilt
Good for this couple for not backing down. I hope they find a way to keep doing what they love.
I want to know all the Catholic business owners and I intend to patronize their business and only their business.
Aaron and Melissa Klein probably don’t have the financial resources to fight this injustice. But I also suspect that they do not understand that Section 1 of the 14th Amendment (14A) prohibits the states from abridging the priviliges and immunities of citizens.
And not only have the states amended the Constitution to protect religious expression as evidenced by the 1st Amendment, but the states have never amended the Constitution to protect so-called gay rights. So pro-gay activist justices aside, I believe that the Supreme Court would ultimately have decided this case in their favor under 14A.
Bake the cake and put Ex-Lax in it.
I think we saw that with Chick-Fil-A and Hobby Lobby.
>>I have yet to see a united front against this crap.
Because there isn’t one. Good people are busy doing the work of three as their bosses tell them to “do more for less” each year as inflation eats our wallets. They don’t have time to go counter-protest a bunch of fags protesting a bakery.
Until the wheels come off the economy and all labor is rendered worthless by the bank-controlled economy, the good people will continue to be angry on the weekend and still be at work to punch the clock on Monday morning.
In other words, we are slaves already. The good news is that once the economy collapses, the Progs won’t need the homos, single moms, or blacks anymore. And we know what Marxists always do with the people that carried the signs for them in the revolution.
God forgive me, but I really dislike lesbians. They are the meanest women alive.
If businesses are a public domain, why aren’t LBGT demanding service from Muslim owned businesses that are held by people who would kill them?
Or whites going into black owned businesses and demanding equal service?
I hope skerries and other service providers just start providing sh#tty service for these Fascists.
What has happened to prior “sign carriers”?
More than anything else the badgering and harassment sound like what Lot experienced in Sodom.
If businesses are a public domain, why arent LBGT demanding service from Muslim owned businesses that are held by people who would kill them?
Or whites going into black owned businesses and demanding equal service?
I think that these both are excellent questions.
Strange, I don't recall this information being reported by the "news" media......
Oh, wait! They would if it was "vicious phone calls and emails" directed at homos. not from homos! Liberals get a pass at being able to harass those they do not like.
Most of my life I’ve been a “live and let live” kinda guy - - you mind your business, I’ll mind mine.
But anymore I am really starting to hate faggots.
>>What has happened to prior sign carriers?
The revolutionaries who upset the establishment to put the Bolsheviks into power don’t fare well, because they usually aren’t happy with the new order either. Especially once the realities of “From each according to his abilities, and to each according to his needs” begins to sink in and they find themselves being herded into a factory or a farm instead of just getting a bunch of free stuff that they they thought they’d get.
So, the Marxists usually dispose of them quickly. After all, you can’t make communism work with a horde of useless eaters. (You can’t make it work without them either, but at least you can prolong the lie a bit longer if everyone is working themselves to death.)
They do—all the time.
I'm a big believer in spreading the pain. Section 8 housing should be zoned next door to federal judges. Affirmative action quotas should be maintained and enforced in Yeshivas. And every federal employee, starting with Harry Reid, should be on Obamacare.
“Gone Galt!” Aaron and Melissa
“Gone Galt!” Aaron and Melissa
They should start an Internet order business, if they already haven’t. I suspect plenty of conservatives around the country would be glad to do business with them.
“I want to know all the Catholic business owners and I intend to patronize their business and only their business.”
I don’t know if they are Catholic, but they profess to be Chrisitans, and they are standing up for the truth of God’s Word at personal sacrifice. They have been harassed as well. I’ve been a Christian for a long time and I’ve seen Christians helping Christians and NON-Christians all the time. Before I became a Christian, a true, born again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, the One who saved me from my sins, I never noticed or cared.
There are many businesses that I boycott (including GM and all TARP banks), and many that I patronize for political reasons (including Chik-fil-A). I comment on those spending decisions often here on FR and elsewhere in the hope that more conservatives will join in. There are a huge number who boycott GM because of their corruption, but we need to expand the list of local and national businesses that are shunned.
