By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the pizzeria in Indiana who answered a reporter’s question, and the people who – because they didn’t like the answer – decided to cyberbully them on Yelp, threaten to burn the business to the ground, and even threaten the owner herself. If you haven’t, meet Crystal O’Connor, co-owner of Memories Pizza, who was forced into closing down her business because of leftists acting like leftists when she told a reporter that while she will continue to serve any gay or non-Christian person that walks through their door, she wouldn’t agree the cater a gay wedding because of her religious beliefs.
Now, why you would think to ask a pizza place if they would cater a wedding as opposed to someplace that would actually cater a wedding, I don’t know. The reporter must have gone to the same journalism school that teaches you to, when you question the legitimacy of a fundraising page, instead of doing journalism to investigate it, you just announce on Twitter you reported it for fraud ‘just in case.’
Thankfully Dana Loesch had the crazy idea to actually let the business owner give her side of the story.
Oh, and the fundraising page? As of this writing is over $750,000.
Exit quote from Conor Friedersdorf that I want people to think seriously about and to share with their friends who like to share their open minded and tolerant beliefs all over social media: “I also believe that the position I’ll gladly serve any gay customers but I feel my faith compels me to refrain from catering a gay wedding is less hateful or intolerant than let’s go burn that family’s business to the ground.”
