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.

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...: )
