Persecution of Christians in America
Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Gresham, Oregon, have closed the doors of their bakery as a result of a lawsuit against them for discrimination. Klein refused an order for a gay couple’s wedding cake and is facing a proposed fine of $135,000. A GoFundMe page was started by a supporter of the Klein’s, and $109,000 was raised in less than eight hours. Yet, after backlash from the gay community, the page was denied any further fundraising attempts on account of the Klein’s involvement in a legal case.
Samaritan’s Purse has a fundraising page that includes the Klein’s financial need in the midst of this government sanctioned persecution for their faith in God and adherence to His Word. You can go to the site and make a contribution here.
