Indiana’s ‘Memories Pizza’ FORCED TO SHUT DOWN Due to Threats After Gay Comments

A Walkerton, Indiana pizza shop told an Indiana news channel they would not provide pizzas at a gay wedding.

The O’Connor family said they were not discriminating against anyone – they just wouldn’t cater at a gay wedding.

Memories Pizza was forced to close today.
TMZ reported:

Memories Pizza — the first Indiana business to declare it would refuse LGBT business — got blasted on the Internet and by phone, but the owner says there’s been a huge misunderstanding … sorta.

Kevin O’Connor tells TMZ he’s had to temporarily close his business after he told a reporter he would refuse to cater a gay wedding under Indiana’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

O’Connor says he was immediately flooded by threatening phone calls, and social media postings.

O’Connor wants to clear up one thing: He says he would never deny service to gay people in his restaurant. However, due to his religious beliefs, he does not believe in gay marriage … and that’s why he wouldn’t service one.

Meanwhile, he says the threats have been serious enough that he’s closing his pizza joint … at least until the dust settles.

A GoFundMe page was set up on Tuesday to help out the restaurant owners.
Already $23,000 has been raised online for the family.
