*** UPDATE 4/25/15 New Site to Donate to ***
God bless Franklin Graham’s organization Samaritan’s Purse for stepping up to help the Christian baker after GoFundMe shut them down last week. If you want to help them with a donation, here’s the link. Any amount would be appreciated.
*** UPDATE 4/24/15 @ 10pm PT ***
The link to the GoFundMe site is no longer functional. Here’s the official word from GoFundMe via FreeRepublic.com
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.
The GoFundMe Team
Sweet Cakes by Melissa, the Christian bakers who refused to bake a cake for a same sex marriage, is being fined $135 THOUSAND dollars. Help them with the bill. DON’T just sit there “praying for them!” Skip a coffee and give them a few bucks!
