Remember the Oregon bakers who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, and then insisted that they could not pay their state-ordered fine despite raising $500,000 via crowdfunding? Well, it looks like they're finally paying out.
The owners of a bakery in Oregon have finally agreed to pay state-ordered damages after they refused to serve a same-sex couple last year.
Aaron Klein, a co-owner of the Portland-based bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa, paid $136,000 on Monday, after a two-year battle over the issue. He and his staff had refused to make a wedding cake for same-sex couple Laurel and Rachel Bowman-Cryer, saying that it was against their religious beliefs.
