Indiana Pizzeria Happy With State's "Religious Freedom" Law And Will Refuses To Cater Gays
That "religious freedom" law in Indiana that Gov. Mike Pence swears won't be used to discriminate against gays is already being used to discriminate against gays. Pence will be shocked!
The O'Connor family, which owns and runs Memories Pizza in Walker, Indiana, has announced that they will happily refuse to serve the LGBT community and enjoy the legal protection gifted to them by the state's shiny new law.
“If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” says Crystal O'Connor of Memories Pizza.
She and her family are standing firm in their beliefs.
“We are a Christian establishment,” says O'Connor.
The O'Connor family prides themselves in owning a business that reflects their religious beliefs.
“We're not discriminating against anyone, that's just our belief and anyone has the right to believe in anything,” says O'Connor.
“We definitely agree with the bill,” says O'Connor.
When ABC 57 asked O'Connor about the negative backlash the bill has been getting for being a discriminatory piece of legislation, she says that's simply not true.
“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.”
Kevin O'Connor, Crystal's father, echoes her sentiment and applauds the bill.
“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?”
So, obviously, Kevin is admitting to having same-sex attractions but choosing to be heterosexual.
Oh, and the O'Connor family has obviously never met a gay person or else they'd understand that pizza would never be catered at a gay wedding!
