The Oregon bakery ordered to pay $135,000 in damages for refusing to serve a lesbian couple is refusing to pay.

Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, were found guilty of unlawfully discriminating against the couple when they refused to make a cake for the women's commitment ceremony.

Aaron Klein declined to make the cake for the women on January 17, 2013. Klein said he does not hate gays but that making a cake for a same-sex wedding would violate his faith. (At the time, Oregon had the nation's most robust domestic partnership law. Following a federal judge's ruling in May, 2014, Oregon became the 18th state to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry.)

According to Oregon Live, the Kleins are refusing to pay $135,000 to Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, claiming financial hardship.

But critics point out that supporters of the Kleins have raised at least $515,000 in three crowdfunding accounts to help the couple with expenses.

State officials are looking to establish property or asset liens to collect the debt.
