Trawling Trolls Hit Pizza Paydirt

In a desperate attempt to keep one of the most ridiculous media feeding frenzies in modern memory alive, reporters in Indiana are now going around asking businesses whether they would serve a gay wedding. They finally found someone in Walkerton, Ind. (population 2,248). The owner of Memories Pizza told the local ABC affiliate that if a gay couple came in and asked them to cater their wedding (because all of the best gay weddings are in Walkerton, and they just have to have pizza from Memories) they’d have to say no. 

WALKERTON, Ind. – A small-town pizza shop is saying they agree with Governor Pence and the signing of the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act. 

The O’Connor family, who owns Memories Pizza, says they have a right to believe in their religion and protect those ideals. 

“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. 

The O’Connor’s have owned Memories Pizza in Walkerton for 9 years. 

It’s a small-town business, with small-town ideals. 

“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.

Now, in the hothouse environment we live in at the moment, Ms. O’Connor is what all the right people would call a “hater” or “hate-filled.” And if you don’t believe me, just check out what these believers in tolerance and love are saying on Memories Pizza’s Yelp page (Note: Much of it is NSFW).
