Following the uproar over the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that passed in Indiana—and was subsequently retracted—I wrote a piece about a group that Bill Maher once referred to as the “Gay Mafia.” In that piece, we learned about the hit man tactics used by homosexual-extremists to snuff-out anyone who opposed their radical agenda, especially when that objection was based on religious freedom.
A few days later, I wrote another piece about how the bullying tactics used by the Gay Mafia had successfully intimidated Republican governors across America from passing that law in their states.
Well, it looks like the Gay Mafia has chalked up another victim.
In the wake of an excessively punitive judgement, former bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein were ordered by a judge to pay $135,000 in fines to a lesbian couple because the Kleins refused to bake a wedding cake for the homosexual couple due to their personal religious beliefs.
Following the news of the ruling, supporters of the Klein family set up a GoFundMe page to help them pay the fine, and within eight hours, the campaign reached over $100,000. But then, suddenly and without notice, the account was closed.
In a statement regarding their decision to close the account, GoFundMe wrote:
“After careful review by our team, we have found the ‘Support Sweet Cakes By Melissa’ campaign to be in violation of our Terms and Conditions. The money raised thus far will still be made available for withdrawal. While a different campaign was recently permitted for a pizzeria in Indiana, no laws were violated and the campaign remained live. However, the subjects of the ‘Support Sweet Cakes By Melissa’ campaign have been formally charged by local authorities and found to be in violation of Oregon state law concerning discriminatory acts. Accordingly, the campaign has been disabled.”
World Net Daily reported that a search through the GoFundMe site confirmed that the site has many requests for financial assistance from those facing legal actions, including criminal convictions.
According to The Stream, it was a competitor of Sweet Cakes by Melissa who contacted GoFundMe to alert them that the Kleins had violated the terms of service. Her complaint stated:
“This business has been found GUILTY OF DISCRIMINATION and is being allowed to fundraiser to pay their penalty. The GoFundMe terms of service address hate speech, bigotry, criminal activity and sexism among other things in their campaign… The amount of money they have raised in a matter of a few hours by thousands of anonymous cowards is disgusting.”
Can’t you just feel the tolerance?
By the way, it appears that this decision by GoFundMe is just the beginning. They have apparently removed another fundraiser set up by conservative talk-show host Dana Loesch for a Christian-owned florist in Washington state.

On the subject of homosexual marriage, potential Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee recently stated his belief that the United States is moving towards criminalizing Christians who live their lives based on their religious convictions.
With the building momentum of the Gay Mafia, he could be right.
