Indiana pizza shop bravely vows to not serve gays
While plenty of businesses are protesting Indiana’s completely backwards Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the proprietors of one business are speaking up to say that they are absolutely stoked to be able to deny goods and or services to gay people. The O’Connor family, who owns Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana, couldn’t be more thrilled that Governor Mike Pence has signed a bill into law that is aligned with their values.
If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” owner Crystal O’Connor told ABC 57 on Tuesday night. “We are a Christian establishment.”
Pizza? At a gay wedding? Sure.
Also, let’s say a gay couple orders the pizza and doesn’t say it upfront and then the delivery guy pulls up and notices that it’s a gay wedding. Is the delivery person obligated to just drive away with the pizza? So many questions.
O’Connor went on to espouse that she believes that being gay is a choice and as such, she can choose to deny gay people their God-given right to enjoy pizza.
Local news asked O’Connor if she thought the obviously discriminatory bill is discriminatory, her reaction was priceless.
“I do not think it’s targeting gays. I don’t think it’s discrimination,” says O’Connor, clearly staking out the semantic hill she wants to die on. “It’s supposed to help people that have a religious belief.”
So far, O’Connor’s outspoken bigotry has only helped her racked up some hilariously spirited one-star reviews on the business’s Yelp page.
