Crowd-funding company claims terms of service violated after complaints

Aaron and Melissa Klein

In the wake of what many are viewing as a crushingly punitive and unfair judgment, former bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein were ordered by administrative judge Alan McCullough to pay $135,000 in fines to a lesbian couple. The Kleins declined to bake a wedding cake for the couple due to their religious beliefs.

Almost immediately, supporters set up a GoFundMe page on behalf of the family. Within seven hours, at approximately 6:30 pm Pacific time, it had received nearly $80,000 in funding.


An hour later, it had topped $100,000.

  1. I’m not a Christian. I’m not a Muslim. I’m barely what some people would call a Jew, and I am not a big fan or organized religion- because it’s these kind of things that are the result. God gave us the law- and those laws are the 10 commandments- not “The Ten Suggestions”, or “Ten things I’d like you to think about”, but God specifically told Moses they were THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. Thou shalt not bear false wittiness against thy neighbor- and for these Lesbians to state that they were “harmed” by a person asking that they not be discriminated against for their own beliefs, well, that’s a bold faced lie. These people have not been “harmed” in the slightest- and therefore, they have lied before God. What, was there only one baker in the entire town that could make then a cake? I could not care less who sleeps with who, its none of my business, and they are not hurting anyone- until they do stuff like this.
    If I ran a Jewish bakery and a Nazi came into my store and told me he wanted a Swastika cake, with Hilter, Gerhing, Eichmann, and Gerbils on each of the arms, and a detailed replica of Auschwitz in the middle, I swear, on the love of the baby Jesus, either out the door or out the window, they are leaving my shop without their cake!
    To add insult to injury, GoFundMe shut down the campaign to assist them in paying their fine. However, I do understand, and ask that you do as well, why they had no choice even though on the surface it seems a harsh thing to do. The people at GoFundMe are not Satan’s minion. (And by the way- there’s no such thing as Satan). Imagine that anyone can commit whatever crime they choose, and then go to GoFundMe to launch a campaign to have their bail, lawyer, restitution, or any other criminal compensation paid for by the public. We just can’t have that happen. And although this is not the case here- because these people are not criminals- it would be all the precedent that criminals would need to make a mockery of the whole thing- the way they make a mockery of the entire legal system as it is.
    To all those people who donated to GoFundMe- no one can stop you from sending Aaron and Melisa Klien your donation directly!
