Bakers say gay activists used ‘mafia-style tactics’ to shut down their business

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

The owners of an Oregon bakery at the center of a complaint for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple are speaking out, and say gay rights activists used “militant” and “mean-spirited, mafia-style tactics” to shut down their business.

Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Gresham, Ore., told the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) they didn’t “want to be a part of (the couple’s) marriage,” and continued to defend their decision to turn away Rachel Cryer and Laurel Bowman, despite the negative impact it had on their business.

Cryer and Bowman claim Aaron Klein told them they are “abominations unto the Lord.”

While the Kleins said earlier this year their business had increased after news of the controversy first broke, they now tell CBN that their wedding cake business suffered a major loss.

Watch:

The Kleins closed their “Sweet Cakes by Melissa” storefront on Saturday, and said they would operate their business out of their home.

Cryer and Bowman filed a complaint filed with the Oregon Department of Justice last month citing an alleged violation of the state’s human rights ordinance that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in places of public accommodation.

If state investigators find substantial evidence of discrimination, the complaint could lead to a settlement or proceedings before an administrative law judge.

The Klein’s say their religious freedom has been violated, but did not provide any examples of the “mean-spirited, mafia-style tactics” that led to the decline of their business.

      You don’t seem to understand that a service is different than simply buying a cake. He has to hand make this and put his hours into something he doesn’t feel strong about. Then quality of the cake suffers because his heart is not completely into the idea of what the cake is for. They wanted to force the man to make them a cake for something against his beliefs. I’m for LGBT rights yet I understand why this guy didn’t want to make the cake. It isn’t all “ME ME ME ME ME ME ME” and you should stop thinking about yourselves and realize there are people who shouldn’t be FORCED to do something against their will.

      Edwin but if I would refuse to do a cake for a bar mitzvah, or do one that was religious based I would be closed down and would be the worse person ever…..same difference

    • http://www.facebook.com/donkilmade Mike Armendáriz

      Edwin A Aquino, I see what you are trying to say, but here’s the problem with your thought. You’re turning the homophobic bigot into the victim, just like he’s already trying to do. Just replace him not feeling strongly about “same sex marriage” with “interracial marriage”. Would you still feel so sympathetic towards him if interracial marriage was the thing he didn’t feel strongly about? His right to discriminate against people being taken away doesn’t mean he’s now the one being discriminated against. He will never be the victim, sorry.

      Discrimination…ANY discrimination other than supporting some hate-fueled cause is not acceptable. These people claim to be Christian, yet go check your Bible… there are 4 gospels in which th words & teachings of Jesus are recorded… and NOWHERE is there a single instance of Him saying anything about gays, much less of Him discriminating against others. In fact, read it, and you’ll find numerous instances of Him ministerting to or helping the shunned, marginalised, those considered human trash by his own jewish faith. Jesus was born & died a Jew… His followers were/ are the people that formed “Christianity”, and I cannot help to often how disgusted or saddened by what His alleged followers do in His name, without His permission or within His teachings & examples.

      @Edwin A. Aquino

      That man’s rights were violated, and in this day and age, individual rights no longer matter, especially if you don’t share Politically Correct views.

      As I said earlier, as a gay man, I don’t like discrimination one bit.

      I guess the right of a Christian who has issue with something he doesn’t agree with is not important.

      My biggest concern is that laws used to protect gay people will be used ANY time any perceived injustice occurs, and be used as a way for gay people to avoid accepting responsibility for their actions.

      I went to the local Pride festival on Labor Day weekend.

      I know some people on a couple of Pride boards.

      I refuse to see this issue in such a black and white “us versus them” way.

      I am a supporter of the legal aspects of gay marriage such as laws which govern private property rights, inheritance, power of attorney and other rights married heterosexuals take for granted.

      However, I also support the separation of Church and State. It is immoral for the government to decide if individual Churches and individual people recognize gay unions or not.

      I dislike this man’s bigotry a great deal, but I believe in his right to choose what he believes even though I do not like it. This is why I am bothered by this. It’s going beyond aiming for the right of gay people to choose how to live their lives, to bullying someone they don’t like.

      Individual rights are a two way street, not just when those beliefs are popular or politically correct.

      This couple could have chosen to do business elsewhere or start something of their own. They could have chosen to let people know “this guy’s a jerk, don’t do business with him”. Instead, they went to some government official who had to make things “fair”.

      Life is not fair, and some people are not nice people. People need to learn to deal with problems and negotiate their way in the world, or just walk away.

      If enough people decided to not do business with someone who engaged in behavior they did not like, market forces would punish them by causing them to go out of business.

    • http://www.facebook.com/kiaunna.evrae Debra Morgan

      Thomas, just to touch on one point in your above comment…. “It is immoral for the government to decide if individual Churches and individual people recognize gay unions or not.” I have NEVER seen a piece of legislation that forces clergy to perform same-sex marriages.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ Patrice Sturtevant

      Thomas, the homophobic couple have declined to elaborate on the “mafia” tactics used to shut them down. I am inclined to believe it was simply customers expressing their dismay at their hateful attitudes, then opting to go elsewhere with their business. They are certainly entitled to their opinions — as awful and backwards as they may be — but they are not immune from the consequences such opinions reap.

I respect this couple for strong-held beliefs and the willingness to stand by them during adversity. I do not agree with them, but let us remember, Freedom of Expression. I am a gay man and a follower of Christ. Fascinating to watch this emerging social issue…

    Do Christians who want to go in to business providing a service to the *public* where sexual orientation is a protected class not read the laws of doing business before opening shop? Or are they just too dumb to know the phrase, “sexual orientation,” means whether someone is gay or straight? Or maybe in their pea sized brain they somehow interpreted it to mean you couldn’t discriminate against straight people but have at it for gays and lesbians and transsexuals? It is NOT denying someone their religious freedom to insure a class of people are not discriminated against in public service businesses.

    They are quite wcome to only sell cakes to members of their church or other Christian only organizations. But they have to register as a business providing services only to Church groups and everyone would have to sign a form saying what church they are with when buying a cake. And all it would take to incur a huge fine is to sell cakes to non-Christian persons. But something tells me they may not make as much money limiting their business like that. And it is illegal to limit your business as being closed to only one class of persons. “No coloreds allowed.” Ring any bells?

    I wonder how many weddings they have baked cakes for that were for someone who had been divorced. Or how many for someone who were divorced because they had committed adultery.

    Last thoughts on this. Matthew 25:31-46 Basically, what you do to the lowest, you do to God. What you don’t do for the lowest, you don’t do for God. Who is lower than someone who is committing what you consider the worst sin?

    Discrimination: treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit: racial and religious intolerance and discrimination….. Somebody needs to let them know the meaning of the word they were discriminating.

    To the people who keep on saying what “the gay community did” was wrong or are asking why they didn’t just shop elsewhere:

    Giving your hard earned money to an appreciative business is always sound advice. But, additionally, this happened in Oregon, where such refusal to discriminate is against the laws of that state. Wrong or right, there is a law on the books and should anyone choose to do so, it is their legal right to file a suit. Breaking a law is an actionable offense, and it is not outrageous that gay couples are filing a suit requesting that the law be followed.

    Also, to clarify, it is neither the “gay community” or “gay mafia” (haha) that caused them to close/move their shop. It was a mixed community of concerned neighbors appalled not only by the original discrimination, but also by the poor behavior of the business following the incident that led to the company being boycotted by the majority of the community (not just the gays).

    I’ve heard both Liberal and Conservative thoughts on this issue.

    I am gay, and I don’t like discrimination either.

    However, this was a private business, and private businesses have a right to decide who they serve.

    The owners were forced to violate their religious beliefs.

    This couple could have easily gone to a bakery that wanted their business, but choose to play the gay card instead of being mature adults.

    If the bakery lost enough business to be harmed by not waiting on gay people, they’d learn from it or go out of business.

    I guess free trade and individual rights are something some GLBT people only find to be sacred when it benefits them.

    This is incredibly hypocritical, and it sets back our attempts to reach out to Conservatives, some of whom do not honestly understand and are even afraid of gay people.

    • http://www.facebook.com/celtic.wolf.56 Celtic Wolf

      Don’t forget that the article stated that their actions violated state statutes governing that sort of discrimination. I’m not familiar with Oregon itself, but since it says businesses that serve the public, that probably meant that they couldn’t deny service based on orientation, regardless of religion. If the customers had been rude or something, then maybe, but giving them a lecture, calling them an abomination while denying them service based on orientation…that sounds wrong. Even if they wanted to refuse service, the couple did not deserve to be lectured or reviled publicly and this business was a public business. Furthermore, since the biased couple couldn’t provide any proof that any real mafia-like behavior went on (something they would have probably called the police over), then chances are that they lost their business simply because the public chose not to shop there anymore. How does that set anyone back at all?

    • http://www.facebook.com/tedmrak Thomas Mrak

      I’ve dealt with Christians who don’t like my orientation before.

      I kindly told them I don’t agree with their views, and how they are treating me. But, I walked away.

      I made a decision not to ever do business with people like that again, and I told other people about it.

      I didn’t need to lobby some government official to make things fair for me.

      I choose to be a mature adult who didn’t go and cry to mommy because he had a problem.

    Sadly these people fail on so many level including their own religious views, The bible is a difficult book to read and interpret it always has been, even the earliest students of it saw the contradictions and other errors and had a hard time with them. if they follow the bible so closely they do they believe a man and woman caught in adultery should be stoned to death? Do they advocate slavery? And if they are ill do they anoint their bodies with blessed oil and ask god to heal them? if they had ever looked at someone with lust in their hearts why didn’t they gouge out their eyes? And if they were tempted to steal why didn’t they cut off their hands? Also a Christian i supposed to acknowledge that all government doe so by the will of God, so by defying the governmental law they defy god’s law. Also they are supposed to bless those who curse (attack) them and forgive and turn the other cheek. maybe they have forgotten “What you do to another you have done to me.”

    Your job is to bake the best cakes for all of God’s children – that’s your calling. It is not to you to sort out -”who are the worthy ones?” that is precisely what Jesus opposed. “The Reign of God is like a net…. embracing all kinds of fish!!” “Don’t worry about the weeds in the wheat… let it all grow up together to the harvest time – let God sort out the harvest! Don’t judge lest you be judged… Just bake the cake as nicely as you can with two grooms or two brides or one bride and one groom. And stop acting like you’re the victims. You’re the ones who stressed out an engaged couple. I’ll bet there are straight couples for whom you bake, much more distant from God than the gay couple who really appreciate finally being able to marry,,,

    I hate to say it but I have to agree with the couple. In america we are supposed to be allowed to refuse service to who ever we would like to refuse service to. What they did was mean and hateful but they have to be allowed to have that right just as gay couples have to be allowed to be married. You can not make someone like you or accept you.

    They’re a public accommodation. As such, there only choice is to stay in that line of business or not, not who they can serve. Would they have the same argument if they operated a motel and wouldn’t let black people rent rooms? Sheesh, some people just don’t get it. Religious freedom is NOT a license to do whatever they want under U.S. law. They might try becoming familiar with it. They need to remember that their business is baking cakes, not judging their customers. And if they plan to operate from home, they’d better check both public health and zoning laws–those might also limit their alleged first amendment “rights” to do whatever they want.
