Well, well, well …
Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Gresham, Oregon, who were sued nearly three years ago by Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, a same-sex couple, because they refused to bake a cake — keep in mind, their business is baking cakes — for the couple’s wedding, and were then sued by the couple and found guilty of discrimination by the state of Oregon and fined $137,000 have finally written that check.
The Kleins bitched and moaned and kvetched and cried baby Jeebus until someone created a GoFundMe page, or some kinda money-grabbing page, upon which they pocketed nearly half a million Hate Dollars.
And so now, after riding the wave of anti-LGBT hatred masking itself as religious freedom, because, apparently, for some of these morons, their ALLEGED faith trumps the laws of the land, they have paid their fines … but, the check will be held by the state until the Klein's appeal on the matter is resolved.
Here’s how it’s resolved: you own a business, you cater to the public … all of the public.
Or, pay $137,000 in damages. That’s a whole lotta Hate Cakes, right?
