The LGBT-Gestapo adapts rather quickly. After Memories Pizza raised $842,432 in just a few days, and Arlene’s Flowers raised over $173 thousand on GoFundMe, the Gaystapo couldn’t let Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of the now-shuttered Sweet Cakes by Melissa, use that fundraising platform.
A GoFundMe account was established for the Kleins, and raised over $6,000, until the website took it down.
The website GoFundMe said in a statement Saturday that it took down the page because the campaign violated the policy against raising money “in defense of formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful, or sexual acts.”
“The campaign entitled ‘Sweet Cakes by Melissa‘ involves formal charges. As such, our team has determined that it was in violation of GoFundMe’s Terms & Conditions,” said GoFundMe in an email statement.
“The money raised thus far will still be made available for withdrawal,” said GoFundMe.
An administrative judge ordered the Kleins to pay $135,000 for violating a 2007 Oregon law protecting “the rights of gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people in employment, housing and public accommodations,” according to The Washington Times. The law provides an exemption for religious organizations but does not allow private businesses to discriminate based on sexual orientation.
And we wonder why gay activists go apoplectic over Indiana’s RFRA law, which would protect business owners against this kind of rank persecution—well, it would have, if they hadn’t gutted it.
Samaritan’s Purse, Rev. Franklin Graham’s Christian humanitarian organization, stepped in to help the Kleins raise money.
Stripped of their livelihood and facing financial ruin, the Kleins are being denied funding as if they were guilty of murder or hate crimes. All they did was decline to bake cupcakes for a lesbian wedding. To the Gaystapo, being a Christian is reason enough to be made to live in a cave.

Apparently GoFundMe has no problem raising money for legal funds, as long as it’s not for Christians. Aldo Alvarez was charged with burglary with assault and battery on a law enforcement officer after allegedly attacking Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy Joshua McGehee. McGeheee shot Alvarez, and GoFundMe hasn’t taken down Alvarez’s account.
Neither have they taken down the hundreds of legal defense fund accounts, many of the beneficiaries of which face “formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful, or sexual acts.”
Nope, only the Kleins, who are accused of violating the Gaystapo’s “made to care” rules, have been stripped of their GoFundMe account.
The real agenda isn’t about cakes or “marriage equality.” It’s about politics and an agenda of control. Even gays can’t escape the agenda’s grasp: Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass, openly gay businessmen, are being boycotted simply because they hosted a party for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), with whom they share a support for Israel (a haven for gays in a region where homosexual beheadings are real things, BTW).
On the “Boycott Fire Island Pines Establishment & Out NYC Hotel” Facebook page, one commenter summed it up pretty well.
The focus since Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass invited Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) into their home has been on Cruz’s opposition to marriage equality. But Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) stands opposed to nearly everything I care about. He opposes even the most basic civil rights protections for LGBT people. While he said he’d love a lesbian daughter (in theory), he’d treat her as a second class citizen and would not respect her fundamental humanity. In addition to being anti-gay, he’s also anti-choice, anti-immigrant, and he subscribes to a fundamentalist Biblical world view. He’s a theocrat. He denies climate change. The NRA gave him an A+ on their scorecard. He’s made outrageously false statements about President Obama, including calling him “an apologist for radical Islamic terrorists.” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is a right-wing fanatic of frightening proportions. Lending ANY kind of support or legitimacy to his candidacy for president is, in my book, unconscionable.
The Gaystapo takes no prisoners, brooks no dissent, and offers no mercy. All in the name of “tolerance.”
Everybody will be made to care.
