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
I don’t mean to make light of a serious issue, because if there are bigots like this who own a pizza joint, there are bigots like this who own a florist shop or catering business. But. Just how many gay couples are coming in asking to have a pizza party wedding? I’m guessing this is not an actual problem for Memories Pizza.
And what the hell kind of a name for a pizza joint is “Memories Pizza”? What kind of memories are they talking about? Memories of when they lived in a city where you could actually get good pizza?
(Their Yelp page is something.)
Update: People do have pizza served at their weddings.
