An Indiana pizza shop owner supports Gov. Mike Pence after he signed the controversial anti-gay bill and the family is boasting that their establishment will not cater gay or lesbian events.
“If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” said Crystal O’Connor of Memories Pizza..
The O’Connors have owned Memories Pizza in Walkerton for 9 years.
“We are a Christian establishment,” she said.
“We definitely agree with the bill,” she told ABC 57.
When asked about the negative backlash the bill has been getting, she denied that it was discriminatory against gays.
“I do not think it’s targeting gays. I don’t think it’s discrimination,” says O’Connor. “It’s supposed to help people that have a religious belief.”
“That lifestyle is something they choose. I choose to be heterosexual. They choose to be homosexual. Why should I be beat over the head to go along with something they choose?” Kevin O’Connor said with a straight face. (See what I did there?)
Negative reviews on Yelp are pouring in.

I’m ANGRY and will never order pizza from these people again because they’re simply not discriminatory enough! I mean, just “gays”? What about anyone who works on Sundays (Leviticus 23:3)? People who wear makeup (Jeremiah 4:30)? Hungry people (Proverbs 23:2)? Men without beards (Leviticus 19:27)? Tattooed people (Leviticus 19:28)? People who eat shellfish (Leviticus 11:10)? People with messy hair (Leviticus 10:6)? New mothers (Leviticus 12:4-5)? Psychics or mediums (Leviticus 20:27)?
Also, I hope there’s absolutely NO FAT in your food! (Leviticus 3:17) Because that would surely be sinful!!
And, lastly, you’d better not eat your own pizza, because if you’ve read the Bible, you certainly understand that in 1 Peter 2:1, God specifically instructed you to “rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind.” (That means you’re supposed to lay aside ALL malice or ill will, like denying certain people service, you morons.

I’m a big supporter of local business and it would have been nice to try this place but I guess my dollars are unwelcome here!
Also, why would I serve pizza at my wedding reception?!?!?!
I’ll order my Double Stuffed crust pizza without the hate, elsewhere!

You choose to own and operate a business in the service industry, then you should serve everyone equally.
Jesus Christ did not discriminate when he fed the masses with the loaves and fishes. And on other numerous occasions when dined with people of questionable moral character. Who are we to judge others?
Feel free to hold whatever belief you wish (see also the First Amendment). But serve anyone who chooses to patronize your business.
When you (Memories Pizza) begin to feel the backlash from your public statement of discrimination remember two things: first, you chose to use your rights to express and exercise your thoughts and beliefs; and second – everyone who boycotts you are using their same set of rights.
And as a side note, in all my queer life, I’ve never known a gay to cater their wedding with pizza.
Good grief. Making pizza for a same-sex couple will not damn you to hell or make you gay. Certainly no gay friends of mine would even consider serving pizza at their fabulous wedding.
I suspect the pizza shop owners are looking for attention. Be careful what you wish for.
